Other Protein Alternatives



Recommended Posts

So the program I am doing doesn't really want us to use Protein Powder except for unusual circumstances.

We are supposed to get our Protein from natural food sources - Something to boost protein - *milk powder, Peanut Butter powder* can be used. Rest need to come from cottage cheese, cheese, tofu, Oats, milk, lentils etc. Well that's for vegetarians, which I am.

Non-Vegetatians have more options with meat and chicken.

So I am sure dialy protein need can come from various food sources than having to use protein powders.

And I'm sorry to "hijack" your post, but reading the replies has me curious about Protein Water. I wonder if any of them are any good? Please chime in, everyone! I'm curious to know if anyone has one in particular that they can recommend.

Premier Protein clear fruit juice wasn’t bad. Immediately Post surgery everything else was too sweet to me. That was my lifeline.

The BariWise Soups are pretty good. Keep the Water temp under 140 degrees so they have a smooth texture. If the water or milk is too hot, the Protein sticks together.

      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 🥲

      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.

      I have two initial consultations coming up. November 30th I am traveling to Richmond Virginia to VCU and on December 2nd I am consulting with a bariatric surgeon in Salem Virginia. 
      Let's hope my insurance is good for this decision. 
      I wanted an extended tummy tuck but I cannot justify the out of pocket expense yet. Pray for me.
