I have not had surgery yet, but the question is one that will be covered pretty soon with the dietitian, I am just wanting to know now. I know about the Protein powder-but can you buy ready made shakes? When I go back to work, I doubt if I will be able to make them with the powder without a lot of fuss and mess. Are there ready made shakes that I can buy and taste-test, or??

There are probably 20 different kinds you can get at the supermarket. Among those are Premeir, Muscle Milk, Boost, Fairlife etc, etc.

There are tons of options out there! I buy the Premier Protein shakes by the case from costco and have one nearly every day. You can get packs of 4 from Walmart of Kroger to try, order them from Amazon, or buy sample packs from some manufacturers. There are also Protein waters, which are a little less thick and not a sweet, if you prefer those.

Yep, lots of ready to drink alternatives. I like Evolve and Owyn.

The premade shakes can get a bit expensive. You can also get a few shaker bottles and make shakes for the day either the night before or in the morning.

Tons of readymade shakes. Find them in the grocery, cvs, target, Walmart, also on Amazon. Thing is do not buy many for after surgery. I bought 6 cases. Now post surgery I find them tooo sweet, yuk. So I have 6 cases I can’t use.

Just a heads up though, tastes change. Don’t go and buy a ton before surgery. What you can stomach now you may not be able to later. For me I was great with Premier Protein before surgery. Now I find everything is so sweet and I can no longer do chocolate without having dumping. Buy one bottle of a few brands to try after surgery to see what sits well. After surgery it’s a struggle getting in all your Protein. Check out some of the protein waters to see if that will help you as well.

Best to get a variety to try post surgery as others have said. Some people’s tastes change especially for sweet stuff. Premiere Protein has a variety pack on Amazon. Not sure which others do but you can also buy singles at convenience stores. Clear protein Water was my go to post surgery in the beginning because shakes were too sweet. Now I the caffe latte from premiere protein (it has caffeine though and some aren’t allowed caffeine right away).

      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.

      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!

      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.
