    Is Whey Protein Suitable for the HCG Diet? Has anyone lost losing it?

    Hello. I am looking for a Protein Powder for this diet. Because of my budget, I was only able to buy a $20, 2lb tub of EAS 100% Whey Protein Powder from Walmart. I am unsure if Whey protein is suitable for this Diet.

    Here is the info per scoop:

    130 Calories
    25 Calories from Fat
    3g Carbs
    1g Saturated Fat
    1g Sugars
    23g Protein

    Ingredients: Whey Protein Concentrate, Soy Lecithin, Natural and Artificial Flavors,
    Whey PRotein Isolate, Acesulfame Potassium and Sucralose

    Can anyone tell me if this seems okay to use on HCG diet? Please help, I start the diet in a few days.

    Thanks.

    I use it, and I've lost 11.4lbs in 7 days. It depends, if you're sensitive to whey it can stall you. Pay attention to the scale.

    Although not purely protocol, I supplemented some of my P2 days with hemp protein (just hemp and fiber, NO sugar added). This helped on the days when I either needed a bit more protein or a change. In P3, I've been having some whey protein shakes either when I'm on the road or for a snack at home. Just be careful and watch for gains. I started on Jay Robb (expensive!), and switched to Body Fortress (usually about $15 at W-Mart, but scored a few on clearance for $11/2# tub). They mix easily and taste fine (which is totally personal preference, of course ). I don't know if it helped me lose, but it certainly has not made me gain, if that makes sense... Good luck!

    HelloMedina. Thanks for this info and nice loss. I am on VLCD3 and have not used mine yet. I am trying not to change things so much too soon.

    I use and love J Robb whey protein on P2 with a little ice, truvia and a few strawberries in a blender. It isn't protocol but some people can get away with it. Be careful!

    he most natural ingredients like organic, hormone-free cow, goat, & sheep whey proteins.

    All natural flavors. high antioxidant superfruits. low glycemic stevia.

    The best tasting, simple ingredients ethically sourced from small family farms, artisanal cheesemakers, fair trade suppliers.

    Whey that transforms your health (and that of those you love).

    Made in a green factory that touches the planet lightly.

    tera'swhey puts the power to cause extraordinary change back where it belongs:
    in your hands.

    - All of our ingredients are sourced from sustainable family dairy farms and from stewards of endangered ecosystems around the world.

    - 20 grams of protein per serving - the recommended serving by MDs and nutritionists for people with health and recovery issues as well as for optimal post-excercise recovery.

    - 4 grams of carbohydrates from fruit and low glycemic stevia means your blood sugar will not spike.

    - Made with superfruits known for their extremely high antioxidents and the best tasting vanilla and chocolate on the planet - the same kind that French pastry chefs demand. As a result, all of our products are not only good for you, but they also taste incredible.

    Are you in P2 or P3?

    I found ENERGYFirst on line. It is sweetened with Stevia, has 20g protein, 90 cal/serving (25g scoop), 0 from fat/sat fat, 1g sugar (possible from the whey) 3g carbs per scoop. I found the best taste with 30g (1 heeping scoop) 2g extra stevia and 3/4 cup water. I include it as part of my 500 cal count. comes out at 100 cal per serving. it's $39 plus $5 shipping but makes 40 servings (2# tub)

    I've used 2 different protein shakes with no problems. The Jay Robb egg white (way too sweet for me) vanilla shake and the triple chocolate Jillian Michaels whey protein. From the too I like the JM shake much better, it's not sickly sweet and is easier for me to digest. I lose fine on either of them.

    I just tried my first Whey Protein Powder for the first time last night. It was a packet of Jay Robbs Whey Protein Chocolate. I put it in 1 cup of water. It was very, very delicious at first taste. But then seconds later there was this terrible aftertaste that was horrible. I will have to try something else. I was down 1 pound this morning.

    Those of you who take or have taken Protein Powders, what do you eat on the days you have Protein Powder?

    I just eat normal the rest of the day, swap the protein for whatever meat I would have eaten at that meal. Usually I do them at dinner time so instead of a steak or burger I have a protein drink, sometimes I'll still have my melba toast, sometimes I skip it. Most have a bad aftertaste, though to me JRobbs is really bad. I just chug them and then drink a bottle of water to wash my mouth out.
