    I just tried the Chocolate Premier Protein shakes this week, and my they're tasty! And unlike Slim Fast, they actually keep me full until lunch. So I'm going to get a pack at Costco and include them in my eating regiment now. Has anyone tried them for two meals a day, with a healthy whatever meal for the third?

    I'm a bariatric patient, so there was a period of time where this was my main source of food throughout the day. Both DH and I would have one for breakfast and then one later in the day, with a real dinner. They are a good source of protein. These days I don't have them everyday, but DH frequently starts his day off with one.

    I know this is from September but I just found this sub-forum.

    Not sure if you are still using those shakes, but I've been using Optimum Nutrition - Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein. I find the actual protein is higher quality than the protein used in the pre-made shakes.

    Also, don't let the online price scare you. My local Costco has a 6 pound bag for 50 dollars. One scoop mixed with water/milk and you're good to go.

    I actually make really delicious (but very filling) shakes using this protein powder:

    I love the Premier Protein drinks from Costco. I like vanilla. I'm doing the Smart for Life program I bought online from Costco - it's very easy and convenient! Initially I was very good and lost 10 pounds.

    I see this is an old thread, but like another poster, I just found this WISH board.. Anyway, I love the Premier Protein (Chocolate) drinks and I will blend one with some ice and maybe a little Almond milk or Heavy Cream or something to bascially get a milkshake when I really REALLY need a treat :)
    My Local Sams, CostCo & Bj's all sell these Only flavor I haven't tried is banana and that's because I can't stand anything flavored Banana.
    I usually drink one for Breakfast and it keeps me full until about 1 pm or so - without the crazy sugar crash I get with other shakes.

    I just had one for lunch! They are great if you put them in the freezer about 90 minutes before you drink it. It gets a little frozen and tastes like a shake.

    I'm a 4 month post-op VSG patient and I still drink one Premier Protein Chocolate (only flavor I can stand post-op, it's funny how my tastes have changed) every day.

    They don't have the best reputation in the WLS community because of all the chemicals in them, but I have yet to find a drink with as much protein and as little sugar and carbs.

    It's pretty thick so I usually put it over ice and let it sit on my way to work. When I get to my desk it's watered down enough for me to enjoy it.

    I've been having trouble finding chocolate in stores (Acme, Shoprite, Walmart & Target are my usualy go-to) so I ordered about 100 online last week.

    We buy them at Costco. They are on sale right now so I plan to go stock up, even though we have some right now. My 18 year old son and I are the ones who use them. They are handy to take to work/in my purse, etc....

    Hi Everyone. I'm new to the protein game and I'm not sure what direction to go. I only want to lose a few lbs and then maintain that weight. I'm also not sure if I should skip a meal when I take a shake. Also what shake should I consider. I go the the gym 3 days a week and walk as well.

    Does anyone have any other recommendations?
