Man, I feel guilty that I haven't posted in a while...BAD GRASSHOPPER! lol.
To answer your question, Pookie, I like Champion chocolate....23 grams of protein. I mix it with a half cup of water and some Upcal. Like the fact that there's not much to drink if I'm not in the mood to do protein.
I'm still having a dizzy problem. Went to the doc last week and he told me to up my protein to a 100. Can't seem to do that....can usually get up to around 80. They also told me to take the B vits once a day rather than once a week. I had blood work done and I'm still waiting on the results.
I've switched over to fish, ground chicken and turkey, and I can even deal with sweet Italien sausage patties (19 grams). I eat cheese and I've had some nuts but I don't think they agree with me. I play with the diet a little because I think a little fat content helps with the need for colace or benefiber. Unfortunately, some days it "helps" too much.
Just wish I could get a handle on the reason for the dizziness. I took off extra time from work because I'm still afraid to drive. I still haven't really exercised because I'm afraid of passing out. Not sure what to do. The weight is staled for the last week or so but I'm down about 35lbs so I'm not complaining. My body just needs to adjust.
Another thing...has anyone had tingling in their arms and legs after surg. Feels like they've gone to sleep...know what I mean? Read somewhere that it was a sign of a vit. def. but not sure which one. I changed to a sports multivit that I take twice a day, taking 1000 mg of B12 a day, and I try and get in about 1000-1500 Upcal (citrate) a day. Even take some TUMS occassionally to settle my stomach. I get about 70-80 grm protein and about 80-90 oz of H2O a day. Am I missing anything.
