I began researching proteins for the RNY patient long before I had my surgery. I learned the best kind of protein for us is Whey Protein and that there are basically 3 forms of Whey Protein: Isolate, Concentrate, and Blended (a combination of the first 2). So, once I knew this, I went in search of a reasonably priced option ? because protein supplements can get expensive really fast. I was examining the products sold at Vitalady.com because these are people who have had bariatric surgeries and who would take the time to answer my many questions. I landed on the Champion Pure Whey Stack as something to try out and Vitalady.com actually sells the different flavors in individual serving sizes! Soooo, I purchased a sackful and set out to try them on for flavor. I learned there are 5 flavors I particularly like: Chocolate, Vanilla, Banana Scream, Cookies and Cream, and Chocolate/Peanut Butter. I also learned: they shake up into a thick creamy mixture without grit at my desk in about 4 ounces of really cold water ? which I figure will be just about right when I am post-op. I add one pack of Nutra Sweet at this point (I am still pre-op right now) because I like things really sweet. YUM!! Then, when I placed my first order, because it was more than $300 (I ordered 25 pounds of protein powder ? enough to last 4 months, as well as the vitamins I knew I would need) I got free shipping! I don?t think we can get a much better price than $1.61/day for more than 60 grams of bioavailabile protein. I?m hooked!June 12, 2009 (indicates that they have used the product)
I have used the Pure Whey Stacks from Champion Nutrition for 2 years now. It says a lot that I have used the same product for so long. With other products I found myself getting tired of the taste or consistency. Not so with Champion's products. The Pure Whey Stacks mix easily with water (and juices for a little variety) and are smooth to drink.
As a competive cyclist and bariatric patient, finding something like Champion Nutrition's Pure Whey Stacks was the perfect solution to my nutritional needs.

All of the flavors are good but the Banana Scream is the best. It's so good you think your cheating! It's kind of expensive but it's worth it. You get a very large container that will last a long time. EnjoyAug. 30, 2006 (indicates that they have used the product)
