Description

Details

Getting an adequate amount of protein and nutrition before and after bariatric surgery is often a challenge. Bariatric Advantage answers that challenge with low-carb strawberry-flavored High Protein Meal Replacement Shakes with 27 grams of high quality protein and 21 essential vitamins and minerals. You get all that great taste and great nutrition without suffering the digestive distress of excess sugar or fat. Truly, a winning combination for any stage of your new healthy lifestyle.

Patients who are hoping to become candidates for weight loss surgery are often surprised to discover that they have Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, also known as NAFLD. They are usually still absorbing this news when their physician informs them that this condition could complicate their surgery.

When you have NAFLD, your liver becomes larger than it would normally be. This larger liver can create serious problems for bariatric surgeons. Because it obscures their work area, it makes the surgery more difficult and it extends the amount of time the patient spends on the operating table. Each of these factors can 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. This measure drastically increases healing time.

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 help increase your chances of surgical success with reduced recovery time.

Directions

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!!
good flavor
by Tamara on 8/29/2014
As long as you add this to the liquid not the other way around you are good to go.
Delicious!
by Patricia on 2/16/2015
I've tried vanilla and chocolate. Vanilla is my favorite by far. Both are thick and creamy and simple to make. I blend mine with flaxseed milk, which adds 1200mg omega 3's to each shake (1 cup) along with 2-3 ice cubes. I chose this brand for the high protein content and good reviews concerning taste. I am drinking 2 shakes a day for weight loss along with one low calorie meal of mostly vegetables for added fiber, cutting out the many snacks I was having throughout the day. I'll be adding fruit as I go along. I've yet to be hungry between shake replacement meals. Excellent product!!!
Delicious Strawberry shake
by Toni on 11/13/2016
When I purchased from Bariatric Advantage, I was expecting these meal replacement shakes to be bland and boring. So far that's not the case, I ordered 3 Strawberry, Chocolate & Orange Cream and was pleasantly surprised by all 3! They are really good and mix so well with no gritty, chalky taste.., just smooth creamy goodness in a cup. They are a little pricey, but if you subscribe to automatic monthly orders you save about $7 per bag. I can't wait to try the calcium chews, review to come.
Excelent
by Leslie on 2/5/2018
I love this as my breakfast. I add strewberries(frozen), and make it a shake. Super yummy.
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!
Okay
by Denise on 3/21/2014
Okay flavor, not the best
