6 month pre-diet/protein

on 4/12/15 10:48 am - Renick, WV

Im on my 6 month pre-diet and Im way short on calories and protein per day. Im thinking of adding the Premier protein drink for b-fast. Anyone using this or maybe you know of another protein thats better? Thanks

I use Premier Protein shakes and really like them. My NUT says that whey protein isolate is best and unfortunately the premier variety is whey concentrate. I drink EAS as well but still prefer the premier. Good luck!!! It all works itself out in the end.

My surgeon's office recommends the premier as one of our choices. I do find it nice to have a RTD choice for on the run.

My nutritionist had Premier on her recommended list too, and I have some for when I am on the run.  I prefer to mix my own, and after trying several samples settled on Bariatric Advantage. 

I bought my premier protein at Costco (at a great price!) but noticed my local Stop and Shop sells them in a 4 pack. This might be a great idea so you can try them before making the big commitment LOL

Good luck in your pre-op preparation.  It goes by faster than you think!!

Premier is very good because it packs a punch protein wise and still keeps the calorie count and sugar content low enough! I used them for a long time and bought them by the case at Costco. Their formulation seems to change every now and again - for a while they seemed thicker than I like, so I just added a bit of water and it was all good!

At six months post-op I would urge you to consider real food as the best source of protein.

Thanks for your advice!! Im actually pre-op. I feel I get plenty of food per day but not enough calories or protein. This is the 2nd go round for me to get surgery. Thought I could do it on my own the 1st time. Lost 140 lbs. Gained most of it back. Now Im determined to go thru with it this time.

I bought store-bought protein drinks post-op for convenience and a way to get in enough protein for the day.  If I had it to do over again, I wish I had limited their use more.  I stopped buying them at about 3-6 months out choosing to make homemade protein smoothies instead.  Recipes can be found at www.theworldaccordingtoeggface.com.
