    I started out at 375. I had the Sleeve and was put on the liquid diet 1 week pre-op. From what I've read, it's more common to be on a 2 week liquid pre-op diet, but I guess it varies per doctor. I've only tried 3 kinds of protein shakes (and only the chocolate flavor) - Premier Protein, EAS Carb Control and Muscle Milk. By far the best tasting one I found was Premier Protein chocolate. It was one of the cheapest at $1.75 per shake. I get them by the dozen at Sam's Club.

    GNC has some really good shakes, they are the lean shakes with 25g of protein chocolate is my favorite

    My dr said start shakes 2 weeks prior to surgery. I found a really good vegan protein shake by searching google, 36 grams of protein, and nothing you would worry about putting in your body because it is totally organic.

    I have to do 3 days preop diet of liquids.
    I bought premier choc based in reviews but not planning to try it until I have to.

    Saw dietician yesterday to start pre-op. Surgery April 2! I had Premier with me. She told me only 2 per day. I asked about Muscle Milk Light and she said NO. Reason being some of the commercial protein shakes have trace metals. Such as Arsenic. Even though their a great price right now at Costco I won't be buying anymore.
