I have been having trouble with most shakes because they have sucralose (gives me diarrhea), aspartame (gives me migraines), inulin/chicory root/prebiotic Fiber (gives me mean gas), or milk (makes my stomach upset). So I have been unsuccessfully trying to get enough Protein without any dairy or Protein Shakes, just meat.

I just tried a new protein powder: Muscle Feast which is a whey protein isolate. I tried the chocolate flavor which is sweetened with stevia.

  • I like that it completely dissolved in almond milk without clumping or being gritty.
  • It only lightly foamed which quickly subsided after a couple minutes.
  • It is very thin. It only uses sunflower letchitin for thickening. I didn't mind thick shakes pre-op but post op, I want it as thin as Water so I can get it down.
  • It has a bitter aftertaste. I usually don't get an aftertaste with stevia when I bake but this stuff definitely hits the back of your tongue. After a couple ounces though I didn't notice the aftertaste anymore thankfully.
  • I think it's a wee bit too sweet and will probably dilute it a bit to make it less sweet. I am really sweet aversive post-op so to someone else this may not be sweet enough at all.

Just thought I would share since I hadn't seen this brand mentioned on the forums before. If anyone else has a protein powder that is just isolate + cocoa + stevia, let me know because I'd like to try a few more powders before making a lifetime commitment. 😉

Thanks for the thorough and detailed reveiw. I'm sure many of us have spent money on products that didn't work fo us. Hope you find one that works for you.

Thanks for sharing. Many members here struggle with the Protein Shakes, so this will be a good new option for them.

      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 .
