Weight gaining shakes

Sun May 01, 2022 10:14 pm
"This is the best website for people with an Ostomy, hands down. So much understanding. Everyone should join."

Hi does anyone have any suggestions to protein shakes or weight gaining shakes that don't have a bad aftertaste ,I'm a farely new ileostomy since August, just looking to have something that tastes great and makes me feel full,always hungry ever since my surgery.

I drank PremierProtein shakes for awhile, they aren’t bad. 30g of protein each. I now drink Hiland chocolate milk, I think they’re 16g of protein each and taste great. I also eat Pure Protein bars and they taste just about like a regular candy bar. There are many high calorie weight gain powders/drinks that are much better now than they were years ago. Same with bars.

Hi Scicerchia, I have had my colostomy for 2 years and just recently started being hungry all the time. I have no idea why. I think I will go see my doctor. Do you know why you are?

Are you craving things like ice cream and pickles? 🤭😮

Could just be temporary cravings that’ll subside in say 9 months. 😁

I'm assuming I'm always hungry due to my output of my ileostomy,so I constantly crave nutrition,I do take alot of vitamins also to try and stay somewhat healthy,I don't have any intestines so everything is much quicker 🙂

I make my own shakes. In a blender I put 1 cup of milk, 1/2 frozen banana, some frozen strawberries,2 tablespoons Peanut butter, some soaked oats 1/2 cup ( I soak them overnight keep a container in fridge) 1 scoop of NOW whey protein isolate plain flavor. Some ice if needed . So yummy and satisfying. I too am always hungry with my Ileo . Short bowel syndrome makes us absorb less nutrients. Add any fruit or liquid you like. I don't use premade shakes many have artificial sugars that make food go through faster.

While I was in the hospital earlier this year for 2 months, at one point I was drinking Kate Farms vanilla shakes. 325 calories per carton. They tasted good. :)

Had to have a illeostomy last August. Very nearly died due to complications during surgery! Spent a week in a medically induced coma, on life support and a ventilator. At one point during my coma, nurses had to restrain me!
