I have lost a total of 16 pounds since surgery.  I'm a little worried.  I see on a lot of people's posts that they lost the most the first month and I'm worried that only losing 16 pounds is a sign that I won't be successful.  I had a very hard time ge

I'm looking for Protein options.  I was on GNC website and found Cocotein.  I'm having a rough time with some of the shakes.  Is this a good option?
