I see a lot of people still getting nutrition from Protein Shakes. Which ones are you drinking because I am so over the Premier Protein ones. Someone said the Cookies and cream is good. I liked the boost I drank pre surgery but it only has 16g of Protein.

I did NOT like the cookie and cream one. Also, strawberry taste like soap to me. All the other ones taste fine. I bought one but I can't remember the name, to try, basically it was strawberry milk but with 20 something grams of Protein. It was delicious to me.

I think it's weird how different surgeons and practices have so many different way of doing things. For example, I didn't have a "purée" stage per se. I went from full liquids to soft foods. Puréed foods were included in the full liquid stage for me. After this I will go back to any foods. Well, low fat, low cal, low sugar of course.

Pre surgery I loved the Premier Protein shakes but after I HATE them!!! I have been drinking the Fairlife Core Power Elite shakes and they are SO YUMMY. They are not disgustingly sweet and taste so so good. They also have 42 G Protein in each bottle (14 oz)! I'm 2.5 months out and have half of one every morning for Breakfast and add in a little Fairlife skim milk for even more protein and make the shakes last longer! I really really love them!!!

I was reading this and it sounds exactly like what I have been saying. I thought at first I wrote it until it said 2.5 months out lol. I drank a Premiere last night because I really needed the protein and had been unable to drink them since before my surgery a month ago. I had to choke it down and then I felt sick after. I’m doing the fairlife also and love them. I’m experimenting with different ones. But that is a really good idea for the ones with 42 protein. It’s so full of calories. I had ordered some and then cancelled the order and ordered the 26g ones instead cuz there’s 90 less calories. I also ordered the 30g nutrition plan ones that have a little less calories and I found some in Walmart that are only 8 Oz bottles with 24g and only 130 calories so I bought a 4 ok of those to try. But fairlife is definitely the best tasting, hands down.

Have you ever tried mixing a bit of PB Fit in with vanilla Greek yogurt and dipping apples in it. Something else to look forward to trying if you like the apples with Peanut Butter taste.

I agree with you wholeheartedly. I went from lsurgery to soft foods. Mostly Protein Shakes for fear but I could eat regular foods but very small amounts, and felt fine.
this is a took to help lose weight not a magic solution.

I think you meant to ask flounder that but if so, they have them already peeled at Walmart now I noticed the other day.

      Work is still stressful and I'm on sick leave for this week because of acute laryngitis (corona tested negative twice). 😷
      I'm surprised that I still get reactions for posts sometimes, even though some of them are quite old now.
      Anyway, hoping people are ok!

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about
