Details

Bariatric Advantage Vanilla High Protein Meal Replacement Shakes are delicious high protein, low-carb shakes that also include 24 essential vitamins and minerals. You'll love the versatile vanilla flavor which lends itself to the addition of your favorite fruit or sugar-free syrup. Low in sugar, high in nutrition, Bariatric Advantage High Protein Meal Replacement Shakes help you prepare for surgery and work for almost all stages of your post-surgery healthy lifestyle.

*People who are considering having 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 may make their surgery more complicated.

If you have NAFLD, your liver becomes larger than it would normally be. This larger liver is a serious problem for bariatric surgeons. Because it obscures their work area, it increases surgical difficulties and it 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 help pave your way toward a successful surgery and reduced 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!!
awesome blossom
by veronica on 6/16/2013
great base for smoothies or alone with plain h2o
Great meal replacement
by Patricia on 10/17/2013
Very good meal replacement. Especially for breakfast. Taste really good.
Smooth and Creamy
by Cheryl on 11/14/2014
I put this powder in my blender and added water. It mixed perfectly and was creamy. I found just shaking it or stirring did not completely blend the powder. Not too sweet either which I preferred.
Yummmmmy!
by Patricia on 2/20/2015
Love the vanilla shakes! Thick, creamy, filling, satisfying, and delicious. The high protein keeps me full for a long time, which keeps me from snacking throughout the day. Although it's just as thick and creamy, I'm not as fond of the chocolate flavor. I add sliced apple or banana to cut the chocolate taste a bit. I've already ordered again and am anxious to try the orange cream! All in all, these are the best tasting meal replacement shakes available and definitely get a 5 star rating from me!
Great Product
by Debbie on 9/1/2015
I have tried protein shakes in the past and found them to be lacking in flavor and smoothness. I love these shakes, I am having two each day mixed with fruit and find I am not getting hungry.
Surprised by the taste
by Lisa on 10/15/2015
I wanted to get back on track so I picked Vanilla because you can easily mix it with multiple things. So far I have used it as smoothies for meal replacement and LOVE IT. I mix the water with the 2 scoops it calls for and throw in a banana or other fruit choices and ...it is the Best. I'll continue to use this in addition to my daily exercise. I can't wait to see my results. I don't feel hungry either!
definetly purchase again and would highly recommend
by Lizabeth on 12/22/2016
I have tried this shake with ice water and espresso powder
as well as adding unsweetened cocoa powder, it is awesome as just vanilla and awesome with the others as well.
I love this shake because it doesn't have an after taste nor does it have that artificial vanilla taste.
Tastes Great!
by LilRoo on 2/9/2018
I started off using Bariatric Advantage HPMR shakes in the chocolate flavor (I adore chocolate) and love the chocolate HPMR, but it is nice to have some variety. I just tried the vanilla flavor for the firsts time this afternoon. As soon as I opened the bag the scent reminded me of yellow cake batter (delicious!). I decided to mix my first vanilla shake with 8 oz of skim milk and while the yellow cake flavor was less than the scent it still tasted like yellow cake batter. I was pleasantly surprised and will be very happy to switch between the vanilla and chocolate shakes. Highly recommend!
Awesome Product
by Linn on 3/11/2018
I have tried a number of vanilla shake mixes and this is hands down the best one I have found that tastes like a shake. I haven't tried mixing anything with the shake as I like vanilla and this is perfect.
re: taste
by Kaye on 4/8/2018
It’s all about taste & this is the best!
Awesome!
by Linn on 6/14/2018
Due to bariatric surgery I have been looking for a high protein low calorie vanilla that I like. I do not know how many I have tried and thrown out due to taste and not being able to get it down. This is hands down the best vanilla I have tasted with no funny after taste and smooth mixing. I can mix it with something else with no competition for flavor. I am now able to get in the amount of protein I need for the day and am all ready seeing a difference. It is well worth the money.
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!
Being honest
by Linmari on 7/20/2013
Is the first product I have disliked from this site. Has the worst after taste. So artificial. I can get down most anything.
