I started my liquid diet today but the Protein Shakes, no matter the brand make me nauseous and gag. Does anyone have any tips?

I put my Protein Shakes in an icreami and made Protein Shake ice cream...(frozen Protein shakes) The change in texture helped a lot and I just took small bites allowing it to melt before swallowing!

Have you tried Protein Water? They are the consistency of a fruity drink, they aren't thick and heavy like a milky shake. SEEQ makes really good ones, especially the watermelon flavor. Syntrax Nectars are good too. And MyProtein makes a cheaper version in Sour Watermelon that I love!! You can get samples of all of these from their sites, I highly recommend you do that so you can find one you like. But don't buy too much, your tastes can and will change after surgery.

You can use Fairlife milk to thin out your Protein Shakes, it is lactose free and lower in sugars and higher in protein than regular milk, but tastes like regular milk.

Also, GENEPRO Protein Powder is flavorless and dissolves into whatever you mix it in. Don't believe the propaganda on the package that says it is more bioavailable though, only count the protein grams on the nutritional label. LOL

I was going to suggest the Protein waters as well. Or if it’s the flavors that you are not liking and you are allowed to have caffeine the caffe latte by premiere protein. It’s kinda like iced coffee if you like that. These two were my go To post sleeve. In fact I am three years post sleeve and I still have the cafe latte in the fridge for morning when I don’t have time to cook or I just wake up really hungry and don’t want to wait.

Every morning I get out of bed and grab one of those out of the fridge and go crawl back in bed with it! LOL It gets hydration and protein in my system first thing and gives me a nice chunk towards my protein goal for the day! I eat breakfast/brunch about an hour later... They remind me of an iced coffee so they are easy to get down. I don't know why they taste better than the other flavors in that brand, but they do!

On the pre-op diet, I liked the Bariatric Fusion chicken Soup flavor, and I also was able to do two scoops of Syntrax Nectar unflavored in a Tomato basil soup. It gave it a creamy consistency, similar to if you added some milk or cream. Post-surgery, the only one I can still stomach other than the unflavored powder is Syntrax nectar Naturals in orange flavor, which is somewhat convincing as an orange-juice-adjacent drink. Think TANG.

i added a tsp of Decaf instant coffee crystals, diluted it with extra Water so it wasn't so thick. and blended it up with ice (also added a couple tsps of Benefibre :).

Also, i had to buy and try a whole bunch of different brands to find one that wasn't so sweet...ended up sticking with Isopure Low-Carb Dutch chocolate powder. worked for me :)

Premier Protein is the brand I use and what I would do is mix a shake with some Decaf coffee. Takes some of the sweetness away. Also I made Jello with peach Protein waters from premier.

For me drinking the shakes are sometimes very challenging. I try to drink one in the morning during my commute. I leave the house at 430 am so i can normally finish it with in an hour.

I haven't had surgery yet but am in the pre-op stage. Doing the 3 day liquid "trial" right now. Its been interesting seeing what I do and do not like! Surgery is likely in late June or early July.

      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!!
