I am trying to taste test as many Protein products as I can so I can have what I need in the house ready to use after my surgery, mid June.

I would like to hear some recommendations on the best tasting protein Soup mixes, and fruit juice/flavoring for Water. I've already tested several Protein Shake mixes. But any and all recommendations are welcome.

Thanks!

I found the Premier Protein shakes too thick and sweet. I am now drinking Iconic Protein Shakes. I also like the Isopure Protein powders. The lemonade is good and I also use the unflavored.

I have heard that a lot of people's tastes change after surgery, so I was told not to stock up on anything, because even if you like it now, you might hate it after surgery. I bought an assortment to have around after surgery, so I can try different things, like different flavors of Bone Broth, flavored low sugar drinks, Protein Water, different types of Protein Shakes, etc.

I found a few products I liked pre op, stocked up, and then post op absolutely hated the taste of them! Ended up with a lot of waste. Would recommend having a selection to try, but be prepared for your tastes to change.

For me, the best products were those closest to 'normal' food, like Protein yoghurts. At 9 months post op I still use those to top up when I don't manage to get enough protein in the day.

Hope all goes well for you, singerjoyce.

Tastes definitely change after surgery so dont stock up too much. Premier Protein has a variety pack on Amazon. Maybe other manufacturers do the same. This may be a good idea to have on hand then you can just order what you like and have it at your door in two days.

My taste totally changed after surgery. I would suggest waiting at least a few months out to start stocking up on stuff. My husband literally bought me one of every brand of yogurt they sell at the stores. I hated all of them. Around month 6 was when I could start eating "normal" again. Meaning I actually started liking the stuff I was eating before surgery (healthy stuff).

      I don't know when I reached Onederland but just weighed myself @198. 😁

      Constantly amazing myself. This is probably a normal experience for all of us on a WL journey.
      This morning I was at 174 pounds (78.9 kilos). I can perceive that my brain hasn't really caught up to this yet, as I still feel obese, even though I am close to being considered a normal weight, not even overweight. The smaller clothes, the higher fitness level, the great blood work results, the energy- these all tell me a totally different story!
      I have NEVER EVER been, never, not once in my life, nada, zip, zilch, zero times, been "thin." I think this explains some of the disconnect between the reality of my body and the stuckness of my brain. I do have confidence that my mind will catch up soon ❤️
      Not really having the experience of true hunger yet, but I can perceive the peristalsis of my digestive tract. And I am getting very good at spotting head hunger, and simply noticing it, like a Buddhist.

      I ordered the Barbecue Protein Crisps here from BariatricPal, and find them quite tasty. The Ranch flavour, not so much. They are very filing and have a satisfying crunch.
      I continue to shrink, and am amazed at the changes all over my body. Visually, it is striking to me. In the mirror, I look thin to my eyes, but I don't feel thin, although I can see more bones and veins and tendons and floppy skin. Cardio-wise, It takes a lot more effort to get my heart rate up and I'm now monitoring which heart zone I can get into and for how long. My resting heart rate is the lowest it's ever been.
      If I think about it, and I left myself feel it for a time, I weep (like, boohoo cry) with joy. I am so grateful to myself, and proud of myself for having the courage to have taken the leap to better health.
