If it is on YouTube, it is opinion and not science. Same is true of personal trainers. Unless they have a college degree in PT, they have NO MEDICAL TRAINING WHATSOEVER and their services are not regulated by anyone. Listen to your surgeon and nutritionist, and consult legitimate sources of WLS-related information like Obesity Help and Society of Bariatric Surgeons. Even this site has professionals you can consult...
Thanks for your response Guys!! I have bee fine up to this point, but when this pop-up on YouTubeI was shocked because I have never heard anything bad about protein shakes. I will continue with my Atkins and GNC powder and will try the Max that Eggface suggested! Debbie..
I would think that in the seperating the whey out to make the protein powder that this would be very expensive.. and so are the protein products. Just guessing... I would think the cheaper it is the lower the quality.. but yeah check the labels.. not sure if that would help or not because it seems the stuff is still marketed for weight lifters and doesnt tell ya much on the bottles.
This is why I would never buy meat at Walmart.. yikes.. lol..
