What is the best shake flavor that you guys seem to have came across and works the best for you? there's so many kinds, and flavors, brands and everything in between. I reallllly like AdvoCare chocolate. Pre op/ Post op I just want to keep my options open and if we can keep it online shoppable that would be lovely.

Be warned what you may enjoy before surgery may be disgusting after. We experience a change in our tastebuds & sometimes sense of smell. There can even be an aversion to certain textures. It can persist for a couple of months. I found things became ridiculously sweet or salty. The shakes were crazy sweet & seemed very grainy. I tried a flavourless pea Protein but all I could taste was peas (& I love peas but then blah!) Many struggle with purées because of the texture. Best advice is to get in a variety of brands & flavours of shakes others recommend here & also some bone broths & cream Soups.

All the best with your surgery.

At this point, the only Protein supplement I can still tolerate is unflavored. I have so many Protein Shake brands and flavors and I hate all of them. But Soup or a smoothie with a couple scoops of unflavored Syntrax Nectar works great. I've heard Isopure is good too.

Isopure: Dutch chocolate flavour.

I found this brand to be the least sweet and low carb option for me (i found that i really did not like sweet drinks anymore after surgery).

I would have 2 scoops of it, 1 tsp Decaf instant coffee crystals, 2 tsps Benefibre, 500 ml Water and a handful of ice. shake it all up in shaker bottle/cup and enjoy!

      Still purging all of the larger clothing. This morning, a shirt that I ADORED wearing ended up on top. Hard to let it go, but it was also hard to let go of those habits that also no longer serve my highest good. Onward and upward!

      Well, tomorrow I go in for an impromptu hiatal hernia repair after ending up in the ER over the weekend because I couldn't get food down and water was moving at a trickle... I've been having these symptoms on and off for a few weeks but Sunday was the worst by far and came with chest pain and trouble breathing. The ER PA thinks it is just esophagitis and that the surgeon and radiologist are wrong. But the bariatric surgeon swears it is a hernia, possibly a sliding one based on my symptoms. So he fit me into his schedule this week to repair it! I hope he's right and this sorts it out. He's going to do a scope afterwards to be sure there is nothing wrong with the esophagus. Here's hoping it all goes well!!
