I was wondering for those who are in the liquid diet stage or further, when you drink a Protein Shake like Premier Protein do you guys drink the whole bottle at one time or take time throughout the day to drink it? Please I need help!

I'm in soft food right now and don't typically rely on shakes anymore cause I have been getting my Protein in just fine with the foods I am eating (and if not I use a scoop of GENEPRO in a small amount of Water (like 2 oz, usually gatorade zero) and drink that for 30 grams of protein). However, when I was in the full liquid stage I would typically finish the shakes within 30 min. No more than an hour for sure. But then, I never had an issue at all from the get go when it came to getting liquids in or keeping things down. I was one of the lucky ones, still am, who didn't have issues with nausea, sickness not being able to eat, drink etc.

actually, that's more the norm. I think it seems like most people have nausea, can't eat, etc because people who experience that are looking for advice or support, so they're more apt to post. There's nothing wrong with that, of course, but I think it kind of skews people's perceptions - they think it happens to a majority of us, when it actually doesn't..

The very few times that I had success drinking a Protein Shake after surgery, it took me an hour or two to finish. Very slow. I have found much better luck filling a 24 oz. water bottle, adding a scoop of unflavored Protein Powder (Genepro is the only one that doesn’t make me nauseous), Crystal Light, and drinking over a few hours.

And to another comment, my nutritionist told me vomiting isn’t normal after surgery.

sorry - but that's the way internet forums work sometimes. I'm several years out of surgery - I don't remember how quickly I drank shakes. Someone not as far out can probably give you a better answer.

That's fascinating insight, I honestly thought it was the norm that everyone would get nauseated and/or had big issues with eating and drinking. But, it makes sense, what you're saying. This makes me feel better going in.

I’m three weeks out, have tolerated every food I have eaten, have no trouble with liquids or pills, have never vomited or been nauseous. I think for most people that’s the norm. Good luck!

When I was in the early stages (I'm almost 5 years out), my nutritionist had been clear; meals, whatever you are eating, should last for 20 minutes. Didn't matter if you hadn't finished whatever you were eating, you were done in 20 mins. I think the idea behind this is to encourage mindful eating, stretching a meal out over 20 mins so one doesn't eat too much by eating too quickly, as well as to break old, bad habits of having to finish what's on your plate, to delineate meal times instead of a long period of grazing/snacking, etc. I never had nausea or vomiting post-surgery, but sometimes drinking a full shake in 20 mins was more than I could handle; I'd just be full.

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

        Hi, I have been having a look around the site, I cant find anywhere that you can delete your account yourself, However in the rules it indicates that staff can delete accounts so maybe use the "contact us" tab at the very bottom of the page and ask for assistance there.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
