Recommendation for Protein Powders



Recommended Posts

you're going to get about 100 different answers for this because people's tastes are all over the board. I never liked Premier Protein, but a lot of people love it. I loved Syntrax, but some people don't like it at all. The best thing to do is just pick up a bunch of packets at someplace like Vitamin Shoppe or GNC - or order some sample packets online. You can even get some here at the BariatricPal Store (although some are available on Amazon as well)

I liked Syntrax and Unjury products the best, but again, tastes are really all across the board.

I like the unflavored Protein Powder - I also found most of the Protein products too sweet. The unflavored is much more versatile - you can even add it to savory things.

My favorite that I have tried is the coconut almond Vega brand.

I couldn't tolerate any of the Protein powders until my nutritionist suggested GENEPRO. It is unflavored and, though others say it can't be tasted at all, it's a little thick so I mix it with Metamucil every morning. It provides 30g of protein.

Sample several powders if you can.

@Rose57 Not only are you going to get 100 different answers, but YOUR tastes may change pre and post-op.

For example, I really liked the Premier Protein ready-to-drink shakes before surgery. They tasted good and they were convenient. After surgery, I just couldn't tolerate them. They were too sweet and the texture seemed a little too thick and slimy for me.

I was fortunate enough to receive several samples after surgery. I liked the Bariatric Advantage, but my favorite by far is Unjury. I keep several canisters in my pantry as staples and ALWAYS have some unflavored on hand. I also liked that Unjury had savory flavors. Not a fan of the Santa Fe Chili, but the chicken Soup is very good (high in sodium).
