    Grams Of Protein Per Drink Per Day?

    Ok, so I was wondering how many grams of protein per drink, or per day should I be drinking on my liquid diet? Still trying to put together a menu of items that I can eat (drink) the first few weeks after the lap band surgery...any suggestions?
  5. I was just wondering if anyone has gone through the weight loss center in Beverly Hills..They are opening up a new surgery center in San Jose, set to open on the 20th of this month. I find out tomorrow if I will be one of the first to receive the lap band there....keep fingers XX!
