Can these shakes be used for Protein replacement before and after gastric bypass surgery? Found it at Walmart at a Reasonable price.

Thats what I use.  I got the tub of vanilla- its 26g o protein per scoop.  I pair it with Unsweetened almond milk (40 calories) and shake it up in a shaker with one of those metal balls in it (got @ walmart next to protein powders) and it blends real well.  If you struggle to get your protein- you can use 2 scoops with 2 cups unsweetened almond milk.  Oh and its really filling.

Lots of us here use it because of the cost. I like mixing it with frozen blueberries or strawberries.

I use Body Fortress Whey Isolate from Walmart.  It is a little more expensive at $22.00 per tub.  The regular  $14.00 Body Fortress Whey Protein has lactose in it.  I am lactose intolerant. The Whey Isolate is 99% lactose free and is easier for RNY patients to absorb.  I have had good result with this product and I think it tastes OK.  I make protein coffee every morning with the Vanilla Creme flavor and I also have the chocolate that I mix with soy milk.

Can you use Skim or 1% milk?

I also use it but when Walgreen has their brand at buy one, get one 1/2 off, it is the same price and I like it a little better.  I also light fruit blended with it.

Yes you can use milk to mix the protein powder.  I can't use milk because I'm lactose intolerant and milk makes me VERY sick.  That's why I use coffee or soy milk.  A lot of people use almond milk to mix their protein shakes.  The milk will add extra calories..but it also adds extra protein!

Oh gosh, thank you!  I just bought some Body Fortress and was upset after my shakes for the last 2 days..... and that is the only thing I did differently.  Yeah, I am lactose intolerant as well but happy to hear that the other one at Walmart is working for you.  I might give that one a try!  What I do sometimes is do half whey and half soy protein powder and I tolerate that very well.  But it did not work with the Body Fortress one for some reason.

i think i had one of these shakes, literally, EVERY day for the first 8 months of my surgery.. Drinking one with skim milk, i believe is 36grams of protein... its a great way to intake protein..


this product is very good; wish more people would use it... i still have a shake every now and them with my eggs or protein bar in the morning (obviously drink the shake first)

Yep! I was using this protein for the first 4 to 5 months as well. The only thing I did not like was the gritty feeling or after taste, but it worked great. Since I only use the protein once a day now I bumped up to syntrax necter sweets....damn good stuff.
