I am a little over a month post op and as most of us encounter I'm have a hard time getting in all my protein. I have read a many blogs about "Liquid Protein" shots that are sold at Walmart, and other superstores. So last week i spent the $15 for (6) bottles of 3.8oz watermelon flavored liquid that boost having 42G of Protein. The name is New Whey liquid Protein. Tried it that day ( a week ago today) and immediately got sick. Maybe got 3 sips and i almost lost it in the car.
So fast forward to today, i have 5 of these tubes sitting in my fridge and i decoded maybe i can dilute it enough to where i dont even taste it. i get a HUGE Flannigans green cup ( you know the big cups) fill it up and empty HALF of the 3.8 oz tube and i even added some lemon juice. I got about 4 sips and i get the same feeling. WHAT GIVES.. its protein right??
Well i deiced to cross reference the ingredients of these "liquid protein" to my Whey powder shake (maybe i should have done this before i bought it, but hindsight is 20/20).
WHey Powder protein shakes only contain ( as far as Protein blends) whey protein isolate and Hydrolyzed Whey protein - and this is what the DR suggest us using, right?
Well these Liquid proteins are a mixture, its not just WHEY protein. It contains.. Water, Complete Proteing Matrix (NWN Proprietary Blend of Collagen Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Isolate, and Casien Protein Isolate. Is also has a whole bunch of other stuff i cant even pronounce.
My question.... Has anyone ever gotten these liquid protein cleared by their DR? I have seen it mentioned so many times here i thought it would be a great easy fix, but it makes me so sick. Is this stuff even good for us sleevers? The shakes dont get me sick like this thing did, im just sick of drinking them, so that leads me to believe the "proprietary" ingredient the liquid stuff has may be no good??
Let me know if anyone has had success or if i just picked up the wrong one.
