Hi there, I am about one month post-op. Surgery was 12.16.19. I am struggling with getting all my Protein in and I do NOT consume sucralose. Almost all shakes, drinkable Proteins, even oatmeals and etc that I have found on this site and others ALL have sucralose. But also after surgery I now can't tolerate shakes that are super sweet either. I am fine with stevia, Monk Fruit or real sugar (just not a lot of it) OR unflavored. The unflavored/raw one I found here even had sucralose! Any suggestions? I can't be the only one who chooses to not consume sucralose...Help! Thank you!

Thank you Alex for the speedy reply - however I looked at all the items in your link and they all have sucralose. Many are aspartame free (I also avoid aspartame) but EVERY item has sucralose except the "Diabetic Kitchen Gourmet Drinking Chocolate" but it has ONE gram of Protein so that's pointless for me (and for most of us who want as much protein as possible!).

Aaaahhhh you are correct! I was totally thinking of aspartame! My apologies.

What about unflavored Protein powders? Like

You could mix it in pretty much anything.

Thank you Uomograsso! I am ordering this to try now!

You JUST had your surgery, how did you find this? I have been having a hard time finding one not only with no sucralose but also that's not too sweet for me now! Also, how does all your info show up under your profile? ( and the weight timeline in your signature?)? This site says my profile is complete...I just joined today and there is not much direction, it also said I can get points for reviewing my surgeon (which I want to do, he was amazing!) I found where to look him up and he's "unverified" and I could not do a review but others had? And had listed him as their surgeon but I can't see where to do that. Any help is appreciated! 🙂

There are quite a few unflavored Protein powders out there, on this site and others. I started back in July of 2019 and did a lot of research and got a few samples of stuff to try out. If you click your screen name in upper right you can choose "My Surgery" to fill out your surgery details. Click on "My Ticker" to create one for your signature. Can't remember what I did to get things to show up, but it is a switch on one of the profile settings.

If you can tolerate Stevia and Monk Fruit try Iconic Protein. It is not plant based, it is milk based. I buy mine at Amazon. I cannot tolerate aspartane or sucralose. There are 20G or protein.

I also have been using Purely Inspired … it is plant based, and too much whey upsets my stomach, but I like the French vanilla and use it in my coffee in lieu of half and half. I also have gotten that on Amazon.

I just tried Premier Protein drinks. They are 30 grams of protein! I've used the vanilla in coffee... there it's a caramel that is a bit sweet but I'm going to freeze one for a dessert type snack, and I had the banana creme for Breakfast. It does have some sucralose, but does not have the awful after taste. I needed a higher Protein Drink for pre OP prep, so that's why I tried it

Thanks Lisa for the info! Premier was one of the first I looked into but unfortunately has sucralose so I can't/won't consume it but I know it works for a lot of others!

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
