Premade Protein Shakes or Protein waters are great in the early days. For foods, I ate a lot of refried Beans, hummus, thick Soups, etc. and would just add unflavored Protein Powder (Isopure) to everything. Once you progress to solid foods, it gets easier to get more protein in without supplementing.

I have been taking the Unjury chicken broth Protein powder. You mix it up in warm (not hot) Water and drink it. It has 21 grams of protein in 8 ounces. 90 calories so it is really not bad to get the protein in. I got so sick of sweet Protein Shakes that I needed a change. If you need the full 30 grams of protein like a premeir Protein Shake, use a scoop and a half in 12 ounces...still much easier to get down than a protein shake and the calories are the same.

I need to get my hands on the non flavored protein because taking it down has been my biggest challenge the taste is to much for me .

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
