Description

Details

After weight loss surgery many individuals encounter severe problems with sugar. Bariatric Advantage Chocolate High Protein Meal Replacement Shakes are an ideal way to get the flavor you deserve, the nutrition your body needs and avoid the digestive disasters excess sugar can cause after many forms of bariatric surgery. Each rich chocolate serving gives you 27 grams of high quality protein, 21 essential vitamins and minerals and 6 grams of fiber yet comes with a single gram of sugar and just 2.5 grams of fat! High in nutrition, low in sugars and low carb is a winning combination for any healthy eating plan.

Candidates for weight loss surgery are often surprised to discover that they have Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, also known as NAFLD. To make matters worse, they soon learn that this condition may complicate their surgery.

NAFLD causes your liver becomes larger than it would normally be. When this happens, it creates a serious problem for bariatric surgeons. Because the diseased liver now obscures their work area, it increases surgical difficulties and extends the amount of time it takes to perform the surgery. All of these factors increase the risks factors involved in any form of surgery. In worse case scenarios, an enlarged liver can even force the surgeon to abandon using a minimally invasive procedure and resort to cutting the patient open to accomplish the surgery.

Fortunately, clinical research has shown that short duration, acute weight loss may be very effective in reducing liver volume. This reduction makes bariatric surgery easier, faster and safer.

A recent multidisciplinary study concluded that "a 2 week pre-operative diet with Bariatric Advantage High Protein Meal Replacements provided major reductions in liver volume in association with modest weight loss." If you are presently discussing weight loss surgery, consider the advantages of using Bariatric Advantage High Protein Meal Replacements in conjunction with a low-calorie diet to put you well on the way towards a successful surgery and could help reduce your recovery time.

Love this product
by SarahT on 5/20/2011
I bought the chocolate, strawberry and vanilla flavors. They are all great! The vanilla one tastes like a real milkshake. I use 1 cup of either unsweetened almond or coconut milk in all three flavors. The longer you mix it, the thicker it gets. I drink one shake every morning. It's a great way to get all that protein and low calories.
This product works!!!!!!
by pattyb on 8/30/2012
I am 5yrs post op, and I use this in my coffee in the morning. I do 2 cups of coffee and I put a scoop in each one. Depending on your taste you many not need to add any creamer. I'm a hazelnut freak, so I add the sugar free hazelnut creamer. I also use this with my tropical shake. I am holding my weight without a lot of limitations because of this product. I have tried many different brands, this one definitely stands out. Any of the Bariatric Advantage Brand products are great!!!!!!!!!! You can email me if you have any questions, or would like any of my shake recipes at [email protected] Subject. Bariatric Advantage and I will respond.
BEST I'VE EVER HAD
by [email protected] on 7/19/2011
I am just winding up my second week of 5 shakes a day. I say with sincere sincerity this product is the best on the market. I did change things because I am not a fan of very thick drinks. With the ok of my doctor, I have made several different flavors, while adding no fat of calories, which helped with my boredom of no food. LOL If I had to pick my favorite flavor I could not do it. All were equally great tasting, mixes in a shaker with no lumps. I enjoyed mine over ice.

I used 8 oz. of skim milk and 8 oz. of water OR 8 oz. of non-carbinated sugar-free soda. I found it at Aldi's

P.S. I wasn't hungry even once!!!
This helped me through post sleeve gastrectromy.
by det on 8/30/2012
I have tried both chocolate and vanilla flavors of the meal replacement. I really like the taste. I added some flavored extracts to both flavors and this added a little more variety. Drinking meal replacement was the easiest way to meet my protein requirements after sleeve gastrectomy. Meal replacement really helped me through the first few weeks after my surgery!
Pleasantly surprised!!
by mautie on 10/6/2011
Let me say for one thing..I was incredibly hesitant on purchasing this product. Since I like to play things safe, I purchased the Vanilla flavor first to try it out. Let me tell you that I was incredibly surprised at how great tasting the Vanilla flavor is!! It's almost having a McD shake. To me, it has no aftertaste whatsoever. I'm glad I purchased it. I'm going to try chocolate next.
This ones the Best!
by EJG on 8/30/2012
I have used this product for 9 mo. This is the best of all the many protein drinks I have tried. Chocolate taste without the chalkiness/ aftertaste of other brands. My doctors office no longer carries this brand-but BC does! Thanks!
New Twist
by Eileen on 1/21/2012
After starting my 2 week liquid only diet for pre-op, I was getting bored with the choc, vanilla, and strawberry shakes. They taste great, but 35 shakes later....blah~! I love Crystal Light fruit punch so I decided to mix the vanilla w/the fruit punch water and it was awesome! Shake went down great! I made my pitcher of crystal light according to the directions and then just used 8 oz of crystal light in lieu of plain water, mixed in 2 scoops of vanilla, and blended. I have many other flavors of crystal light and can't wait to try more!! Hope you try and enjoy.
Thick and very good
by SMR on 3/24/2012
I am 2 years post sleeve gastrectomy and my weight has been stable. But I want to lose some more weight. I tried other protein shakes but they didn't hold off the hunger. I remembered that I tried this pre and post op and decided to try again. I am pleased. I sometimes add almond extract or a half of bananna to change up the taste. But I like the taste anyway. I am trying some of the other products.
I love BA Chocolate
by Tigerlily on 4/18/2012
I am 2 years out from a gastric by-pass. I have tried every protein there is out there. In fact I have a box full of protein I can't drink. I had given up and was just trying to get all my protein in via food. That is until I found Bariatric Advantage Chocolate. I have been told that I only need to drink 1 a day, but I can't help myself I have to have at least 2 a day. I make it with skim milk and ice so it is almost like a frosty. My Dr. does sell it from his office, but it is so popular they have problems keeping it in stock.
Chocolate is great!
by Kristin on 2/21/2013
I had the chocolate meal replacement shake before surgery and after and i love how creamy and consistent it is. it mixes pretty easy and doesn't separate if refrigerated. I like it alot!! Great if mixed with a ripe banana!!
Great Meal Replacement No-Brainer
by RMB on 4/11/2013
14 months now since my weight surgery and I NEVER get tired of the chocolate high protein meal replacement shake. I have one or two daily still! Typically I add one banana instead of using milk or a milk substitute or I've added strawberries too. Ripe bananas are yummy in this shake! Thanks Bariatric Advantage for making this my favorite protein supplement! It's a no-brainer too. Don't have to count or ask myself "did I have enough protein for this meal?" E-A-S-Y
Like the thickness
by Dianne on 5/20/2013
I have tried many different protein shakes and found this one to taste good. I like the thickness.
Tastes Great and I feel satisfied
by Dianne on 7/6/2013
The chocolate meal replacement shake tastes great and I feel satisfied for many hours. This is worth buying.
High Protein Meal Replacement
by Mary Ann on 11/30/2013
Great source of protein. Fast dissolving and good tasting.
bariatric advantage
by Laura on 4/17/2014
I am lactose intolerant so to make my shakes I use water and ice. I only like chocolate so I also add sugar free chocolate to it .
Great tasting & satisfying!
by MARSHA on 7/18/2014
I love this meal replacement shake. I first had this shake in preparation for gastric bypass surgery. The idea of only shakes for two weeks was something I really dreaded since I had tried the shake diets so many times in the past. But this shake it so good. My favorite is the chocolate. No medicine taste or bad aftertaste. I mix mine with skim milk for more protein. The vanilla is very good also. After the surgery I continue to have the shakes for breakfast because it is a great source of protein. So easy,great tasting and satisfying.
Great taste, long lasting fullness
by Brittany on 9/28/2014
A friend of mine recently had gastric bypass surgery and drinks these shakes. She let me try one and I was hooked. I am not a bariatric patient but I have been trying to watch my weight. These shakes are a great tasting meal replacement that I drink for breakfast. They keep me full until lunch. They are super easy to make. The package says to mix with water which tastes good but I prefer mixing it with skim milk. It makes it taste just like a milkshake.
Love, love, the Orange Cream
by Glenda on 9/28/2014
My family members have come to me and asked what I have been using after my surgery. They taste the shake and can't believe how good it tastes! I have tried all types of protein shakes and this brand is definitely better tasting than all the others I've tried from the GNC health food store or other stores.

It's a no brainer!
The BEST!
by Brooklynmom on 2/28/2015
I have been using Bariatric Advantage for two years (pre and post gastric bypass). This is amazing. It helps me to sustain energy throughout the day. I have a shake in the morning and a shake at the end of my work day and it keeps hunger at bay and alleviates that shaky feeling you get if you don't eat. It gives me 50 g. of protein and I use it in the blender and water and it comes out thick and creamy. I fill up two shaker ball containers so I am getting my liquids too.Sometimes I throw in a banana. I have tried many other protein supplements over the last two years and none comes up to the quality of Bariatric Advantage. I've had all the flavors but the basic vanilla and chocolate are the best because you can add lots of different fruits or flavors to them.
Delish!!
by Lin on 5/1/2015
Out of all the shakes the chocolate is my favorite. For some it's a love/hate relationship. My 17 yo daughter claims it gummy and chalky, but to me it has a very nice milk chocolaty taste and is thick and creamy in texture. Some might claim it may lean somewhat toward too thick but you can water it down for preference. I personally like the thickness. There are other flavor that doesn't get thick no matter what and those taste like flavor water and I don't feel full.

I tend to feel fuller with the thick shake than the watery ones. I had gastric sleeve surgery and started the use of the meal replacement, but I still continue to use it now. It's been two years after my surgery, but it amazing how the pounds will creep up on you, so I am trying to replace my breakfast and lunch with a healthier meal supplement -- the shakes instead of skipping or eating unhealthy substitutes.

I haven't found anything on the shelf that has that much protein, and be so low on carbs and sugar. All the shakes I've looked at didn't match it for the amount of protein Bariatric Advantage had, and contain more sugar than I liked.
Finally! Just what I was looking for!
by Charles on 7/17/2016
I love the Wonderslim Shakes but was needing some additional protein (w/out additional $$). BariWise has a meal replacement but truthfully had too much protein and didn't taste very good. Protein powders from the big box stores have crazy amounts of Cholesterol (just eat a hamburger) which just isn't healthy.

The BA meal replacement was just right. It has great taste, right amount of protein and low Cholesterol. My only suggestion is to make sure to get a shaker cup with the little ball or use a whisker. The powder likes to clump immediately.

I'm actually going to buy more now!
LOVE THIS
by susan on 7/18/2016
I MIX THIS IN MY BLENDER BOTTLE AND IT HAS A GOOD CREAMY TEXTURE AND GREAT CHOCOLATY FLAVOR I WILL DEFINETLY ORDER THIS AGAIN
Sooooo GOOD!
by Toni on 11/13/2016
This is my absolute favorite so far! You can't go wrong with Chocolate, which tastes really good with both water & milk. No gritty taste, no chalky after taste and it makes mixes so well in my Blender Shaker cup with the wired ball. I am so glad I decided to give these a try, it's going to make my post-op meals so much easier!
Bariatric Advantage Protein Meal Replacement Shakes
by Jodi on 6/22/2017
These are pretty good and I am finding that chocolate is definitely my favorite with ice and banana in a blender.
Pre-operative Shake Drinker
by Susan on 12/1/2017
Having to lose some weight before the surgery as well as shrink my liver some It was suggested to try these meal replacement shakes. I have tried both Chocolate and Vanilla and have stuck with the Chocolate...I am a chocolate freak and really particular about trying things like this but was happy that they taste really great...I make some up ahead of time and store in the fridge...just shake up a bit before drinking and I am good to go. I would definitely give them a go.
Great Product!!
by Freebie on 12/29/2017
I am 4 month’s post-op and been using a prepared shake which was very good, but a little expensive. Well today I received my Bariatric Advantage chocolate shakes. I used 30 calorie a cup almond milk which I poured into the shaker cup first, then 2 scoops of BA. Shook it up well and tasted the most delicious, delightfully filling shake I’ve had yet. Thank you for introducing me to this fantastic meal supplement. I LOVE IT!!
Just what I needed
by LilRoo on 2/6/2018
I am overweight and have been for much of my life. I am not considering bariatric surgery, but am looking to control my weight and sugar intake (I have no delusions that I will ever be a size 2, but would like to be a little smaller and healthier). I was previously on a premade shake for breakfast and sometimes lunch, but they were discontinued. I have searched far and wide and found this shake to be the absolute best...my husband even likes it and will ask for it for breakfast every now and again. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking to consume more nutrients, watch their weight, control their sugar, and not feel completely deprived in doing so. This product has help me develop healthier eating habits; small changes really do help. When I am at work I will mix this shake with water with a couple of ice cubes (it is just easier), but when I am at home I do enjoy the milkshake taste and feel so I use skim milk.

If you are looking for simple, healthy, and delicious meal replacement shakes this product is for you!
Two thumbs up
by Ericka on 2/18/2018
The taste was spot on.
Great taste
by Audry on 3/4/2018
I enjoy the chocolate the most. I just wish it wasn't so expensive.
Way more tolerable than other protein shakes
by Deana on 5/11/2013
This is a protein drink that I can actually drink. I DO NOT recommend mixing it with just water (I actually dumped it down the drain) as it was like drinking chocolate water! I mix it with unsweetened vanilla almond milk and I can tolerate it. I have used my shaker as well as my blender (blender is better). I love the amount of protein it gives me. I do like the taste of the WonderSlim :Pudding Shakes better but it doesn't pack the same amount of protein as the Bariatric Advantage. I got spoiled on Shakeology but unfortunately can't afford it. Compared to other protein powders out there this would be the next best thing.
Like
by Charlotte on 1/13/2018
I have only been in this a few days. I like the taste and the fullness it provides. However, when you first open this product can be a bit messy.
Ok but watch out with strawberry
by Cristina on 7/25/2011
Ok so I had to buy this for a pre op diet and this is my first protein so keep that in mind. The chocolate is ok... it is kind of like a chocolate milkshake or chocolate milk. The strawberry I was gung-ho about until I realized it taste like strawberry milk which I hate. So beware if you don't like creamy strawberry tastes you will hate it but if you like it go for it.
Not the best tasting shake
by SK on 11/28/2011
The price is good, but just to stomach it I have to add 2 splendas, cinnamon, and some flavored syrup. Compared to optifast which is way more expensive but actually tastes good. Just hoping I get used to these because they are priced right lol!
Blahhh
by Denise on 3/21/2014
Not a very good flavor/drink
