Liquids , Trying to avoid milk shakes ....

In the past when I have had to do liquids from fills I have lived ( literally) on 2 things , bolthouse farms protein shakes and milk shakes.
I am really trying this time to not do the milk shakes. Although its a way to get calories in , and how I justified drinking them , in the long run not the best choice and at this point in my band journey , probably not doing myself justice.

Why not add protein powders to drinks you might ask ?
I cant , they give me migraines. I have yet to find one that does not . The Bolthouse farm shakes are natural , pre made shakes that do not give me migraines .
I drink them but a few at a time and variety would be nice.

This time I am trying though. So far I am doing ok.

I am down 6lbs in 3 days. Which is good, the weight usually stays off once I start eating too . So YAY !


  1. 6LBS in 3 days is awesome!!!! I love bolthouse farms drinks. They are delicious. My favorite is the Vanilla Chai Protein. yummy!!!

  2. Thanks Jess. I am trying to be good. But its so hard during liquids . I am not a big fan of the Chai , my favorite is the Hazelnut and they have a new chocolate one now too
