  1. I had to drink 3 weeks of diabetic Boost, 5 a day, and only water or tea… I lost 30 pounds, but it was hell….
    I had mine 2 days ago…
    They dont tell you about the pain!

    The pain when you sit up.

    – when you when you sit down.
    – when you stand.
    – when you bend down to pick up something you dropped.
    – when you when you drink something.
    – when you walk.
    The big pain in the ass that I have been for people around me!
    – when you have to pass gas.
    – when you cough, sneeze, hiccup, etc…
    – when you cant crush all of your horrible tasting pills after because your stomach is too small for anything solid (screw it, im blending them in my bullet, too many chucks that hurt going down).
    BTW how can I crush a pill with oil in it???

    – when you finally burp.
    – when you drink more than 60ml/1/4 cup per hour. (ill be on just a liquid diet for up to 6 weeks more, thats 9 weeks all together, before and after the operation, and not booze LOL!
    Then 1/2 cup of thicker stuff, blended, pureed soups, smoothies, etc… for up to 8 weeks. Then introduce solids…

    The pain when you eat apple sauce to dilute the taste of the crushed pills. ( I think grapefruit juice or Cranberry might be stronger to help? Mango Juice works somewhat.. for the awful taste.)

    Thank goodness for T3s with codeine ( they help about 75%) and pills for my anxiety..
    They help to prevent me from getting too cranky…

    And, I AM cranky… LOL! 😛

    Oh well, its only for another week….. or two, or three until I can walk normal?

    Im Gorgeous! Haa haaa!

  2. Thanks for posting this.  Its much easier for me to hold down vs the protein drink alternative.

  3. What about for those that hate milk or don’t touch dairy products?

    • they have vegan based protein mixtures i believe and you can make your own with water.

  4. Why add dry milk and skim instead of protein powder and liquid milk?

  5. my dietician no milk because of the sugars no peanuts or any nuts which have a pinch of proteen rest of oil use PB2
