Powder protien Drinks or Ready to Drink



Recommended Posts

So how does everyone feel about using Podwer Protein insted of the ready to drink i know they are way more convenient but sometimes a little more expensive also how do you prepare the powder so it equals the amount of protein and calories your supposed to have (not sure if that makes any sense) i hope it does am on the fence my surgery is April 26 and i haven't been able to buy anything i can't afford anything hopefully i can get some stuff beginning of the month.

the only ready-to-drink ones I liked were from Unjury. I was 90% a powder user, though. You just get a shaker bottle or throw it in a blender. Depending on the flavor, I'd mix it with either Water or unsweetened almond milk (some people use dairy milk)

it will say on the container how much Protein and calories are in one scoop (all the brands I've ever gotten come with a plastic scoop inside the container)

liquid all the way. 5 yrs out and I still can't do powder. Good luck on your surgery. You won't regret it!

I use 99% powder. Equate (Wal Mart) is cheap and my favorite. I put the powder, some ice and Fairlife fat free milk in the blender and it whips up light and frothy. The blender makes the difference. It is not nearly as good in a shaker.

The scoop inside the container will give you the amount and calories.

I keep a limited number of Premier Protein premade shakes on hand in case I need to grab something quickly. Even if I buy a four-pack, I find I tire of any flavor quickly.

I use both. I buy Premier Protein Smores RTD flavor exclusively (only one I like from their line) and I purchase Shamrock Farms Protein Shakes RTD locally when out and about. I use RTD to mix in my coffee everyday (decaf). I do have Unjury powders in Rootbeer, chocolate, Unflavored and Santa Fe Chili (haven't tried it). I like them ok. Rootbeer is my favorite. Bariatricpal has a chocolate that I really like in powder form. And I purchase Carnation Light Start RTD instant Breakfast drinks (were on pre-op diet) that I use occassionally for a quick grab and go snack or extra Protein type thing. So I guess Im more RTD than powder. They are just more convenient and taste better and do not seem to have that "protein" aftertaste.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!
