try some different brands - pick up individual packets if you can in case you don't like it - nothing worse than being stuck with a huge tub of something you hate. I had to experiment with some different ones before I found a couple I liked.

I didn’t have a problem tolerating the Protein Shakes after my sleeve. I revised to bypass a few months back and now many make me sick as well.

I like And tolerate the Syntrax Nectar chocolate truffle. They have many flavors to choose from and the bp store here offers individual packs to try.

meanwhile go to the grocery store and get some fairlife milk. It is high in Protein and tastes great. Extremely important for you to get your protein in at this point in time.

good luck and hang in there.

Have you tried Premier Protein's Protein Shakes? They have 30g of Protein per 11.5oz, You can find them at Sams, costco and Amazon.

They come in 9 different flavors, depending on your taste some you will really enjoy and others.. well, its still a good source of protein.

Are you using powdered Protein Shakes or pre-made shakes? I couldn't do powdered shakes, so I did and still do GNC Lean Shakes (premade)

I'm 13 days post op revision to rny and I'm having the same problem. The only shakes I like are Herbalife and they don't have enough Protein and are higher in carbs than I'm supposed to have right now. I'm really struggling because I don't like the protein waters either. Nothing tastes right.

This happened to me after revision as well. The premier shakes that I loved before revision no longer taste good and do not stay down for me. The powdered Syntrax and the slimfast high protein premade are the only ones that work for me now.

I'm one day ahead of you! I have a hard time with the Protein Shakes, too. I can't stand that fake sugar taste, which also makes the Protein Water unbearable to me. I have gotten Iconic Protein shakes, they use stevia and Monk Fruit so are less chemically tasting to me. downside, you have to drink a lot more to get the 20G. You can get them on Amazon, but order a 4 pack so you aren't stuck with them if you can't stand them. I have also gotten some of the Premier shakes; they are really, really sweet, but there are 30g in like 10oz. I have been heating the Iconic chocolate truffle as a hot chocolate and then adding 2 oz of the Premier Caramel. I can tolerate that so today I am going to add 3 oz. Also, I have frozen to a mushy stage both the caramel and the banana and cream, and eaten it as an "ice cream". I am also totally dependent upon Swanson Organic chicken Bone Broth. There are 9 g of protein in the sip and go cups; I treat that as my "lunch", or "dinner" and then have the Protein Shake as a "dessert". The broth is also a hydrating liquid, so you count if for both protein and clear liquid. Once I stopped trying to drink the whole shake and broke it up across the day that helped, too. I have to have the shakes either very, very cold or warm. I also have protein water which I bought (it is Ready protein water). I can't really stand it. I have been putting 2 oz. of the lemon in plain water, and that is not too bad, and gives you a few g's of protein, plus you're hydrating. I have ordered some plastic ice pop molds; they should be here today. They are slightly less than 4 0z. I intend to mix 1/2 of the protein water with regular water and freeze; perhaps that will be more tolerable. I have been eating the sugar free popsicles like crazy, and they have that chemical taste, so maybe if I freeze the protein water it will help.

Sorry for the long ramble! I spend all day thinking about this, and it is starting to show!

Good luck!

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

      4. BayougirlMrsS

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.

        What state are you in????

    • Krestel

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!
