Protein Shakes

I tried to find a thread for this on LBT but got tired of searching. As I am about to begin pre-op, I am curious; which brands and flavors of the protein shakes are your favorite? I have always hated SlimFast and stuff like that so I'm hoping the shakes won't resemble it. I am about to stock up so suggestions are appreciated.



  1. Hi Ashley,

    I drank mostly the EAS Myoplex shakes. The ready made ones are the best, in my opinion. Pour them over ice, and add a little cinnamon. If you go to the EAS website and register, you can get a coupon to print out for free shakes or big discounts.

    Good luck!

  2. Ashley,

    I am trying a few different protein shakes and powders that are recommended by my dietitian...I too like the EAS Myoplex shakes, they are yummy! (Although I was unaware of the coupons!)

    I also went to GNC and got some unflavored whey protein powder and mix it in with a ton of stuff (liquids and others), if you use the right amount you cant notice it at all, although if u use too much, it gets clumpy. I find it a safe bet because everyone says that tastes are gonna change after the band (I havent had surgery yet....) so I dont wanna fall in love with one, and then cant stand it after...


    YAY! Pre-op!

  3. I use Muscle Milk Lite Cookies and Cream or chocolate

  4. Can't help you here... they seem to have totally different brands in the US than Australia.. but that said: GOOD LUCK WITH IT!!! You're going to do great.

  5. Unjury - chocolate. buy it online only :) yum

  6. Thank you all for your suggestions! I will definitely look for the Myoplex shakes and try them. Nikki, I think the unflavored stuff sounds great, too, so I will look for it. I drink a lot of tea and would love to add some protein to it.

    The Muscle Milk sounds yummy! I also saw an ad for Unjury today online. I wondered about it. I notice a lot of bloggers also seem to use Isopure (or something like that??) I suppose I just need to find one that's right for me.

    And The Dash, thanks for your encouragement. Let's hope I get through this ok! Haha.

    Thanks again, y'all :)

  7. Ashley, I've been using Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein powder. I have the chocolate flavor. They're fine, don't love 'em, don't hate 'em but they get the job done.

  8. I love the Premium Pro-Rated Protein Mix. I get it from Costco. It comes in a 6 lb bag & only costs $28.99!!! I only drink it in the Chocolate flavor though, I have never tried the Vanilla.

    It tastes like a thinned down Chocolate Milk! If you want to see what the bag looks like, I have photos of it posted on my Nov 4th posting, titled: Only 15 Days To LB Day!! Hope this helps.

    I like it so much, that I can drink it made with just water to cut the calories down!
