I’m so over protein shakes



Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any suggestions for some unflavored Protein Powder?

There are lots of recipes for home-made Protein Shakes online. There are also Protein Soup powders available from Bariatric Advantage and ProtiDiet. You can add unflavored Protein Powder to a variety of liquids. Think outside the box.

I use Isopure, but honestly don't love it. I tend to only mix it in to other foods like Beans and Soups and such, not in drinks. Have you tried the Protein waters (Protein2o, etc.)? I've been drinking those and find them MUCH more palatable now that I've burned out on shakes. They are thin, not as sweet, and I can dump them in my water bottle with some ice and sip on them all day. They do tend to have less protein than the shakes, I've only found varieties with 15 and 20 grams, but still a nice reprieve!

Isopure unflavored. You might want to try injury chicken broth flavored too.

Agree with this - the Unjury chicken Soup isn't terrible, but still tastes like Protein Powder. I'm in the same boat, over the Protein. I've been using the Bariatric Advantage Creme flavor, it's less sweet. I mix 2 scoops with fage greek yogurt, 8 oz of Water, and 2 tbsps of PB2. It's like 50 g of protein and tastes ok.

Try the Fairlife Core Power shakes. They're delicious! Taste like real milk. I drink the chocolate one blended with ice, and the vanilla one I blend with ice and a shot or two of espresso. Better than the Starbucks frappucinos!

Where do you buy your fairlife? It’s kind of hard to find for me.

Have you tried avoiding Protein Shakes all together? My surgeon doesn’t allow them. They want their patients getting Protein from real food. I thought that was odd when I first heard about but after doing this for three months, it totally makes sense now.

Local grocery stores (Giant, Harris Teeter), but most conveniently on Amazon.

      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.
