I have been getting my protein in using the Unjury chicken soup. I have two cups of that a day, it's good but even better if you drop a no sodium chicken bouion cube, it hides the protein taste! I also got the syntrax nectors variety pack and using those in my water between meals they are good.
There is even some milk based shakes in the variety pack try those, chocolate, strawberry,cappaccino there all good. I thought I was really hungry, my stomach was constantly grumbling & churning, called my surgeon staff and they told me to increase my PPI. I was taking one 20mg in the morning, now another in the evening, what a difference that has made not feeling that tummy hunger like rumbling now. Two bariatric multi-vitiamins & 6 chewy calcium chews, 1 sublingual B12. I'm feeling good, but I still get tired mid-afternoon and cat nap, I know what you mean about rushing this along I see myself doing that!
