I just tried the Fairlife core shakes and WOW it sooo much better than Premier Protein shakes! Going to try the Fairlife nutrition shakes later. Anyone else prefer these? I believe these are going to be a life saver with the pre-op diet!!

Yes! I was just recommended them by someone on here and they are delicious. Doesnt even taste like a Protein drink!

Update!! I tried the Fairlife Nutrition shakes, Delish!! Fairlife Core is just as delish!! But I can only find them at BJ's and Amazon. Amazon is pricey for it. Its only $16.99/12 pk at Bj's. Now I feel like I could get through the pre-op diet stage drinking these. I could see me drinking these for rest of my life! I honestly can not believe this is a Protein drink!! They taste just like regular chocolate milk!! The fairlife vanilla core tastes like melted icecream!!

Fairlife Core is made by CocaCola and packs 26g of sugar. That is ridiculous amount of sugar for weight loss. Also, its source of Protein is neither whey or caesin. So low quality source of Protein.< br />

My nutritionist warned about the Core shakes because of the 26g of sugar. However, the milk has more protein, more Calcium and less sugar than regular milk, and I like the taste. She had no problems with the milk. I use the 1%, and I use it to make cream of wheat, and I have also made a Protein Shake with Iconic Protein Powder.

@lisafrommassachusetts @over65 I’m confused? I only see 5 grams total

Is this the nutritional information for the shakes, or for the milk?

@MarvelGirl25; Some of the Fairlife shakes have very high carbs; some have lower, but then you end up with less Protein. Here is a label from one of their chocolate shakes: you'll see it has 11 g of Sugar and 17g total carb. Some are even higher! If the above one is for a shake, I'd love to try it, because the milk is really tasty.

Confusing. The smaller one has 26g of sugar, but the biggest one only has 5!

      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!!!

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
