Hi all! I’m 8 days post op RNY and I have a question that I haven’t found the answer to while googling. I’ll call my nutritionist tomorrow and ask but just wondering if it’s possible to add Protein Powder to my pre-mixed shakes? Or is that too much Protein at once? I’m having a hard time drinking as many Protein Shakes as I need but I just can’t fit them in. Between drinking all the Water and waiting 30min before and after the day gets way from me. I have a shake in the morning like 8am and I’m still full by 2-3pm.

From what I remember your body can only process/ absorb a certain amount of Protein at a time so any more would just be excreted out and a waste but check with your dietician to see what they say

Ok, thank you! I guess that makes sense. It’s the same with Vitamins. I sure wish it was feasible though. Would make reaching my Protein goal so much easier!

Are you adding Protein to your Water ? You could try that to get it in.

What if you did the clear Protein Drinks? They are not thick at all so maybe they won’t fill you up.

I was told it's ok post-op to add powder to your shakes because you drink so slowly your body has time to absorb it. Definitely ask you nutritionist.

You can only absorb 30g of Protein at a time so adding any additional protein is a waste per my dietician. Maybe try protein Water?

thats interesting, never thought about that, but the first thing i thought about was, its gonna back you up even faster. My dietician says the high Protein does that. Im 8 mos out RNY, and thats my biggest struggle. I take daily stool softener along with laxative 2 times a week.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.
