Bariatric Advantage HPMR



Recommended Posts

I just started the 14 day pre-op diet yesterday and am using the Bariatric Advantage HPMR powder, and I must say I find it totally repulsive in taste and texture. Don't get me wrong, I can and will gag it down as instructed, but wanted to see what some of you seasoned veterans may have to offer as advice. It is very grainy'gritty when I mix it regardless of what method I use, it is: hand mix, bullet, ninja. So I wanted to reach out and see if anyone has any suggestions that may help with that area of my distaste for the stuff. Thank you kindly for any wisdom you can offer.

Honestly, when it comes to 14 day pre-op diets, no one is much more experienced than you. I mean, it's 14 days that we never have to repeat again, if we do it right.

Now, we can tell you what we like... well, not me since I don't do Protein drinks... but someone will tell you what they like. But as everyone has their own preferences that may not help much. Heck, someone will tell you the one you hate is one they love. Obviously, you are wrong to dislike it, ;)

So, here we are.

If the Doc gave you an example drink, then you can look at stats and just get others that compare favorably. It's only two weeks, so make the best choice you can. Even if it's horribly wrong, it's only two weeks.

I don't work for [looks at top of webpage] of Bariatric Pal. I have never purchased a bariatric product from this site, or any site, or any store, or from anywhere ever as far as I can recall. Thus, I am speaking from a perspective of complete and unimpeachable knowledge regarding [looks at thread title] protein drinks.

Bariatric Pal and most other sites that offer protein drinks and powders offer a variety pack of different flavors, brands, and packing styles of products for the express purpose of allowing you to test competing products until you find something you can actually stomach.

Do it, stick with it, and in 14 days you'll be having surgery. Then you get a whole new set of concerns.

Good luck and enjoy the ride. All sorts of ups and downs, twists and turns. It's a thrill a minute.

It is horrible! Towards the end of my two week pre- op I was mixing my vanilla flavor with two cups of crystal light lemonade and lots of ice. I found I preferred it very watered (lemonaded???) down and very cold. I did not drink as much of it as I was supposed to (3 servings per day vs. 3.5 servings) and ended up with a full bag left over. I am currently trying to use it up since it is so darned expensive. Now I mix it with 1/2 cup Fairlife 1% milk, about 6 oz of cold brew coffee concentrate, lots of ice and about 1/2 cup Water. Typically takes me two hours to drink, but I am about halfway done with the bag. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻

Is this what your doc recommended to use? I have never heard of it before. I think most of us just used broths, juices or a Protein Shake.

Yeah, it’s what my doctor requires. I bought it through them, I’m supposed to drink 5 servings of the nasty stuff a day...gag
