Water vs Milk?????
Here's the real reason I'm writing.....I am a 1/2 pound away from being under 200 pounds. A number I haven't seen in years. I have been this 1/2 pound away for a few weeks now. Mind you that I haven't been a model eater but haven't gained any weight but can't lose that 1/2 pound.
I wanted to "shake" things up a bit and was wondering should I be mixing my protein shake with water????? I am 9 months out and have lost 118 pounds and haven't changed a thing in regards to my protein. I guess I am just frustrated and seeking some guidance.
I can't sign off without saying that I truly LOVE this board and all the advice I receive through my daily reading. I don't post often, but can't go to sleep until I've read all the post for the day. I appreciate everything so much that I convinced a friend to get WLS and soon she will be switched in August. Had I not received an education from this board, I would not have known how to pay it forward.
Thanks for sharing......
I always do water w/protein shakes.

And I have the same questions as NYB about protein from food and carbohydrate intake.
I also ate a lot more protein than you report. I got well over 100 in food and then what I got in shakes was a bonus. By eating more protein I ate fewer carbs.
That's just what worked for me.
