Hello, I purchased the1 oz packets of nectar, I am truly confused the packet states 4 servings do I mix it in my 16 oz Water bottles, sometimes I use the 20 oz bottles of water? Do I pour the whole packet into my water bottle? It is truly unclear to me! TIA

Hi SlimChickadee,

I was just reading about these the other day, and I was looking into trying them. From what I understand for every 2-4 oz of Water you mix in a quarter of the pouch. Maybe start with 2 oz per quarter packet and see if it is too sweet/strong and add more if needed.

So, some people may use 1 entire pouch with 8 oz of water, and others might get 16 oz out of it depending how sweet/ strong you like it.

To get the 23 grams of Protein, you would need to drink the entire pouch.

Let me know if you ended up liking it! What flavor did you try?

@Candace76, thank you for you response, I got the several of the lemon tea, 2 crystal sky, 2 strawberry kiwi, and 2 Twisted cherry. I am partial to tea so got a whole box of them! Lolol Thank you so much will let you know, I also purchased the genpro and is truly is tasteless but you have to be careful mixing it in hot liquids.

I was thinking of trying tge lemonade, iced tea and crystal sky. I also bought the GENEPRO, but have only tried it in sugarfree Jello, so far. I dis order the bariatric pal Fruit Drinks. I wonder if they are similar to the nectar drinks. I only tried pineapple orange from the multi pack. It was pretty good, a nice change from the Protein Shakes.

I've never understood why Syntrax breaks it up like that because for most of us, the whole packet (or scoop if you get the tub of it), is 100 calories/20-ish grams of Protein, which is a typical serving. Maybe they mean that for people who are super early out and can only drink a couple of ounces at a time? I honestly have no idea.

it doesn't matter how much Water you add - 8 oz or 16 oz or whatever. I often added more water during the early weeks because otherwise the taste was too intense for me. It didn't change the amount of protein grams I was getting - just the amount of fluids - so it counted toward me daily required Fluid intake.

I use nectar. My dr. And dietitian recommends 12 once fat free fairlife milk and 2 scoops. That would be to packs of the sample. It equals to 66g protien. I don't care for most of the flavors so I also use biohealth pasture feed isolate. And diesel. I also mix it up one scoop of banana cream and one scoop of chocolate peanutbutter. And then add my bene Fiber and 2 spoons of powdered peanut butter20210719_172722.jpg 20210719_172707.jpg 20210719_172713.jpg

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!

      A bit frustrated with my surgeon's office currently. Feeling like they are leaving everyone in the dark about when surgeries will start again. Told one thing, then told to do another. GRRR! I just want to be scheduled already! 😫🤬

      I'm losing more than weight. Ran labs to prep for my annual exam and since my pre-op labs in September (sleeved 10/13), I've lost:
      39pts off my Total Cholesterol including... 29pts off LDL 33pts off Triglycerides 18pts off fasting glucose & almost normal range A1C is lower on low end of "pre-diabetic" range My surgeon does labs at 6 months, so this is cool info to have in the meantime!
