I never could get the hang of the powdered ones and have stuck with GNC Lean chocolate premade shakes for two years.

I'm already looking forward to my Protein Drink for today. It seems like it's more filling then those premixed ones i was drinking

So I just tried Body Fortress chocolate flavored isolate Protein Powder and it's really good and a lot cheaper than other powders. I'm actually surprised that the powders are not as bad as the premixed drinks!

Hi, I usually use GENEPRO just for the texture and lack of extra taste, less calories and more Protein. I did try Iso (without the taste) but I quickly stocked up again on my genepro. I'm working on adding more protein but the last labs I had done, the Dr said to up them by 25% over the ones I was given because the bypass will lose some of the nutrients. My protein now is around 80-90. I get about 40 of that from genepro and the rest from what I eat.

Everyone is really different with these surgeries and if it works for you, you stick with that. As long as it's ok'd by your NUT and labs are ok, go with what you like.

Thanks. I didn't even think about getting labs done for the protein. On my app like yesterday it said i had 154% protein.. is that something i should be careful with? Can you have too much protein?

The apps are always weird, depending on what you use. I would ask your Dr for your specific case but even too much protein can give problems. However, percentages are misleading on apps. My Dr gives me an ideal of between 70 and 77 as a base (my age is a factor as well) but after the labs, the surgeon said I should up them another 30 or so and then get labs done again. He said it can happen that some of the protein gets flushed down with the other nutrients unable to be kept with the bypass. I'm going again on Monday to get more labs done and can update but I think shooting for between 70-90, depending on surgeries too, can be a good start.

This is one topic that I've heard a lot of different comments from Dr's varying a bit. If you can get hold of your Dr and ask for follow-up info, it can be the most helpful to your specific case.

You're doing great honestly, with trying to do the right thing and watching nutrition.
