Fairlife Core Power 42 grams



Recommended Posts

Anyone try these shakes? They're a bit more caloric than the ones I usually drink (230 vs. 170) but I recently tried their 26 gram Protein Shakes and realllyyy liked them because they just taste like normal flavored milk. I want to try the 42-gram Protein One. There are 8 grams of sugar in each shake which is approved by my dietician. I just don't want to buy a whole case and hate it. Does it taste like milk or have that weird, gross, artificially sweet, Protein taste?

I've only tried the regular Fairlife Protein Drinks (150 calories, 30 gm protein). And they're so much better than powdered Protein drinks imo. But I'm not very familiar with the Core Power. From what I've read, it's the same concept as the regular Fairlife, except after the filtration process, there's even more protein added back into the milk, and it's geared towards athletic recovery. So I assume it tastes the same as the regular Fairlife.

My husband drinks them and he doesn’t even have to drink Protein Shakes. I have read that we can only absorb so much Protein at a time though so I wouldn’t drink it all at once since if that is true you would basically be wasting money and not getting an accurate count of your protein for the day.

I wanted to try them but am having trouble finding just a single bottle. I don’t want to get a case either.

Omg the 42g drinks are a lifesaver. They are all I drink at this point because yeah they just taste like chocolate milk. They are a little less sweet than the 26g ones but barely -- I prefer the taste of the 42g because of being more sensitive to sugar post surgery.

Have you tried the gas station? I haven’t seen them specifically but some of the smaller ones go to Sam’s or costco to buy their products and of course sell individual drinks.

Wow I DID NOT know this haha definitely need to change my protein habits then..I tend to try to get it all in through a shake and protein snack. I looked it up and yeah seems like I can't have more than 26ish grams of protein at a time? I just started splitting my shakes. Good to know. Thanks!!!

Walmart sells the single Core Power shakes. They are pretty expensive though. To me they taste sweeter than the Nutrition Plan shakes. I prefer the Nutrition Plan and have one almost every day.

I thought the 42g one was the elite Fairlife one? Core power is 26?

Literally Fairlife makes my life harder but it is the best tasting one 🤣 I love strawberry banana core power but I’m not shelling out how much they want for it around here/Amazon. So I have the regular strawberry Fairlife right now

A Walmart in my area has them in their cold drink cooler. That's how I tried them.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
