There's actually a clinical study where it looks like it led to about the same Protein levels in blood as 30g of whey protein isolate https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/results/NCT02919657

However, the participants used many other forms of protein as well, the GENEPRO 2 or Whey Protein Isolate just being a small source of total protein, so no way to tell what difference it makes.

Just read another source that pointed out (correctly) that GENEPRO claims to have 30 g of Protein in 58 calories, but since protein has 4 calories per g, 30gx4calories would be 120 calories IF there were 30g of protein in one serving of genepro. Boy, do I feel duped! That's the first and last time I buy anything off Facebook!

I honestly don’t know how they’ve been able to get away with this for so long. The supplement industry is very cutthroat and most of the time inaccurate/false advertising is caught fairly quickly. Especially when they advertise this as a “medical grade” product.

I wondered how the calories were so much lower in the powder. Thanks to you and the original poster that brought this up.

I was able to drink Protein2o Protein Water just fine before the surgery, but after surgery it is too sweet. I have to mix it half and half with water. I don’t have a problem with the taste of the Premier Protein shakes but I am bored with them. I bought a flavorless Protein Powder that gives me 30 grams of protein with each scoop. Isopure from GNC. It mixes with anything water, juice, gatorade zero, I also mix it in my Oikos Zero yogurts. It does better mixed with cold liquids. Don’t mix with hot Soup or coffee. It kind of solidifies instead of dissolves.

Bariatricpal makes Protein Soups. I have a beef bouillon (70 calories and 15g protein) one every day that I work.

I also used Syntrax unflavored protein powder (10g protein for 40 calories), but their Roadside Lemonade and chocolate truffle (both 100 calories and 24g protein) flavors are delicious. They sell a variety pack of individual servings so you can try the flavors to see how you like them. They mix great with Water.

Other times I’ll mix fat free fairlife milk with serving of Starbucks skinny vanilla latte (refrigerated section at the store). It comes to comes out to 150 calories and 19g of protein.

I just had my surgery on 5/28, so I'm still at the "Puree" stage of diet. Still, I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to manage 60 to 80 grams of Protein every day.

For years, I have used WonderSlim brand Protein Shakes sold by Diet Direct. One envelope is 15 grams of protein. I would mix them up with ice and milk so that I would get 25 grams of protein in a very shake-like food which was actually enjoyable. Since surgery, I left out the ice to lower the volume. That ended up being more like pudding, but still tasted good.

The next thing I tried was to mix in one scoop of Orgain brand vanilla flavored Protein Powder. This powder tastes too artificial to me. Now my shake is just tolerable, not enjoyable. (I don't like this powder in my Cream of Wheat, either.)

I may try some of the protein Soups as between-meal Snacks, but I'm certainly interested in other suggestions.

      June 17th is almost here. Picked up everything I need for my after surgery needs. After work will go home and finish packing a light overnight bag to make sure I don't forget anything. And the final countdown begins. Not nervous at all just looking forward to the call for my arrival time.

      I am 19 days post op and I am still struggling to drink the fluids. I am not even able to drink the protein shakes their now nasty to me , I tried the protein bars & it didn’t end well. I have chest pains & I can barely eat. I am weak & my mouth is always dry, and feeling nauseous. Can anyone provide any advise. At least I doing the vitamins. Recently my chest & stomach have a burning sensation.

        I had a very difficult time finding protein shakes that tasted okay and didn't make me sick. I ended up drinking FairLife Core Power protein shakes. I love the chocolate (tastes like chocolate milk to me). I like to blend it with some ice and PB2 powder (or real PB) to give the smoothie consistency. I also found that if I put Panera's Turkey Vegetable soup through the blender, I could eat it. I survived off those two things. My chest pains were from the gas, which was incredibly bad and took so much longer than I expected to resolve. I'd definitely stay away from bars or anything solid until you've conquered liquids. I'd love to tell you the dry mouth will get better soon, but it didn't for me for a very long time (months). The plus to that was that I drank a ton of water. The good new is I suspect you are close to the light at the end of the tunnel on this first and hardest part of the journey. It gets SO much easier after this part.

      I am a week post op and I honestly feel like crap! I keep feeling so nauseous and I can’t get my self to drink a good amount of water. I honestly feel very regretful today. When does it get better?

        By the third week you will feel some relief. Don't push yourself too much with quantity that first week. I just made sure to keep sipping and walking which helped me feel better.

      I honestly haven’t weighed myself since surgery, looking forward to doing it!
