Question for Sugar reduced diets

Jun 22, 2016 12:04 PM

So I've been on the sugar buster type diet over 5 weeks. The surgeon has me eating Dannon Light & Fit Yogurts and Atkins Protein shakes. Suddenly this week it's all too sweet and I'm struggling to get it down. Is this normal? 🙂💕🙏🌼

Omg flappys I just came back on and reread my post. I don't if u understand it or not. I was in so much pain when I posted it.... what I ment to say was yes..u may have built up a tolerance so u may want to back off it for a while. And mix the protien shakes with fruit to make a smoothie. I'm sorry again.

I've been off sugar for a while, and everything with processed sugar is like that for me now. There are some vegan protein shakes like Vega that aren't so sweet. I don't eat dairy anymore, so I'm not much help with the yogurt, sorry.

Lol Newfibrogirl, I understood it. I do smoothies with the yogurt, but the Atkins drinks I just drink like they are. I'm thinking it's like FatigueFighter said, that the sugar amounts are just too high for me now. Thank you!

FatigueFighter, where would I get the Vega shakes from? I'm not familiar with them. Thanks! 🙂💕🙏🌼

In Canada the vega ones are almost everywhere. They are a powder you mix with the drink of your choice.
They recently changed the formula for the sport recovery powder so i don't know how it is now. It's got tumeric and tart cherry in it now.
The old ones I'd add the vanilla flavor into my smoothies and I'd do the berry one just in water. Way more water than it said but that's what i do.

I get Vega at Good Earth or any health food store should carry it. Otherwise, I bet Amazon could hook you up!

Thanks FatigueFighter, I'll check it out on Amazon. 🙂💕🙏🌼
