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).

      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!
