When the bariatric surgeon, nurses, support and nutrition staff tells us to use protein shakes to make up for the food that we are unable to eat in those first weeks and months, we don’t always approach it with a positive outlook. The words Bariatric Protein Drink are negative to many because of what others say or because our only experience with protein was a musclehead chocolate shake that smelled funny and had an aftertaste.
Some protein DOES taste bad, but that really should not matter. In order to be successful with a bariatric procedure, we have to be willing to do what it takes and if it takes drinking a glass of fermented beet juice with owl droppings every morning, our only true concern should be HOW MANY OUNCES SHOULD THAT GLASS BE?
Too many have become complacent before even starting the journey. They listen to the surgeon but know they are not going to follow the protocol because they THINK all protein is bad tasting (and who knows what people are thinking by not taking vitamins at all). Unfortunately, post ops make their own journey difficult, as without protein it is paved with muscle loss, slower weight loss, and hair that may not come back as quickly or at all. While you may disagree, when the body is protein deficient, hair is not a necessity.
THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT NOT ALL PROTEIN IS THE SAME. For PURE, we have sourced the highest quality pure whey protein isolate that doesn’t have those impurities of the brands you may have tried. It is sweet and fresh and tastes like, well it tastes like almost nothing at all. You can add it to a Fruit Smoothie that already tastes good and you can’t tell it’s in there.
Bam, problem solved. If you love the taste of Smoothies, you will love PURE Smoothies!
