Help...what are the BEST tasting Protein Drinks for the Liquid phase (3 wks after surgery)?
Scheduled for RNY on March 2nd and am beginning to look around for items I'll need after surgery. I'm looking at buying protein drinks now.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what are the BEST TASTING protein drinks out there available for use after surgery during the 3 week liquid diet???
Also how many protein drinks do you have to drink daily? Is it 3 (breakfast, lunch, dinner)?
Boost HIGH PROTEIN is on our "list" of protein drink options, but these protein drinks also have 27 grams of sugar instead of the recommended 15-20 grams of sugar. Yes, it provide more protein than the recommended 13 grams but was wondering if the sugar level would be a problem. Not sure that the HIGH PROTEIN BOOST drinks are a "real" option due to the sugar level. Any one use them and find them okay after surgery??
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your help!!!!!
Taste is VERY subjective when it comes to protein drinks, and the smell and texture often come into play as well. I would suggest that you go out to Vitalady.com and order a bunch of different samples so that you can find out what YOU like rather than trust what anyone else likes. As someone else mentioned, something you like now may make you gag after surgery. I don't know why it happens, but it frequently does.
