I’ve tried Atkins, Premiere Protein, Breakfast Essentials, GENEPRO, Muscle Milk, Orgain, Owyn, Proti, and a few other whey powders. I can’t tolerate any of them. I went through this whole process without drinking Protein Shakes. Pre op I chugged them because I wasn’t crazy about the taste but I didn’t think they were that bad. Post op I couldn’t even drink them, I threw up and gaged just looking at them. Idk what happened.

I drink plain fairlife milk but never tried the power shakes. I’m willing to give it a shot. Is it super sweet? I tried the chocolate milk (not Protein shake) and it was too sweet for my taste.

Maybe try protein waters, like Protein2O and such?

Hope you get out of your funk soon.

I agree to embrace any hunger free time frames you have. It is unlikely to last long term. So you can minimize your cals at this time and ramp up your weight loss.

I don't think there are any short term issues with missing your Protein goals, but longer term it very well might be.

I second the suggestion of Protein H2O, it doesn't have that weird protein flavor to it.

I became whey intolerant for a while post op, so I had to try out a lot of different Protein Shakes and powders. My favorite was Medifast Dutch chocolate shake blended with Fairlife and ice. If you use 1.5 cups of milk, the shake comes out to 33 g of protein, so a nice boost for the day. It's ridiculously overpriced and the autoship program is scammy, but at least I didn't dread drinking it!

I’ve tried protein Water as well and it’s worse. Tastes like medicine to me. I’ll try mixing a milk one with coffee and see if that does it but I think no matter how I cover up the taste I will still throw it up because they just all make me feel so sick.

The answer lies in dilution, pure and simple. Also in changing your mindset. Self-fulfilling prophecy is a real thing. CHANGE your tape. CHANGE your game. Dilute the **** outta it and either make it super ice cold or super warm-ish...you can DO this!

Hell, make a Protein 1 minute cake if you have to. Eat it as a protein pudding mixed with sf instant pudding and some Peanut Butter or almond butter. Hide it in a piece of cheese...get creative. LOL.

Can you maybe try switching up what you eat completely? Is it boredom? How about trying Vegan for a bit. I lost my appetite for a lot of foods (except bad things, of course) so I decided to get some books by the Bosh! guys and cook mostly vegan - at least from scratch and then add an egg or cheese here and there.

I tried diluting the waters too but it doesn't help..... well it helps the taste but it still makes me sick. There must be something in these Protein Drinks that my body is rejecting. I havent tried diluting the milks or baking the protein so Im still willing to give that a shot IF I continue to go on an eating strike.

I have no problem consuming something I don't like if its beneficial to me. Heck, Ill force whatever it is down if my health is at risk but theres no point forcing something down when my body continues to reject it.

But like you, Im a full believer in changing ones mindset! Thanks for the reminder :)

I don't think its bored but maybe I could use a change. Ironically last night I was watching YouTube videos about the vegan diet. A couple years ago I was a vegetarian but it only lasted a year before I caved.

How long have you been vegan? Has it been tough after wls?

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
