Yummy Protein Shake!

Rate this Entry
Was leery about protein shakes but JoNichelle was doing well with them so I decided to give it a shot. She mixes hers with coffee. I added my own twist to it by adding about six - eight ice cubes and blending it all in my smoothy making blender. You know the kind that makes individual servings? So now I have a Chocolate mochachino smoothy. I'm getting protein, staving off hunger pains and more fluids! Win/win situation all around. I had one yesterday and I had a bigger weight loss than the previous day. So I'm thinking I needed more protein in my diet. We shall see what the scales say tomorrow! CHEERS! *clinks glasses*

    Cool! I'll have to give this a try since I work out regularly (weight lifting & cardio 4x week). I stopped the protein shakes with this diet since the protein I usually take also has a variety of other things in it for muscle building including caffeine, sugars, and carbs. The store does sell pure egg whites in HUGE pump jugs though which folks have has great success with for muscle building. I'll see where I am at tonight with the injection dose vs hunger and go from there. I love the idea of adding more protein back in though since I definitely DO NOT want to lose my lean muscle mass.

    Ok... this is the protein shake mix I use. Bought it at the clinic so it's on protocol. Dymatize Nutrition 150/100. It is 100% Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolate. Zero Fat, One Carb, zero Lactose. I have the Gourmet Chocolate version. It gives you 25g of protein per serving. 90% protein!

    Oh NICE!!! The reviews from BodyBuilder.com are really good. They say the taste is pretty nice as well. I am going to grab a 2# to try out. They have it for $25 there. Thanks for the suggestion!

    I just started the diet & am today is day 5. So far in the 4 days I have lost 6 lbs ;-) On the 3rd day it looked like I lost some of my calf muscle- one one side only, not nice, so I added Apex lite protein shake which uses sucrolose (generic splenda). It does state it may contain some milk products though ;-( I only mix w/ water & have added one the last 2 days. The last 2 days I've lost 2.5 lbs but haven't noticed any muscle going ;-) I don't mind the small changes, I'm down to 148.6 from 154.6 when I started. Just want to protect my muscles.

    I've used Isopure which is Whey protein in the past but unfortunately b4 I started this diet I was working out a lot (started at 160) & bought a bunch of the Apex Lite when it was on sale ;-( I contacted the site I bought the drops from & they stated the drops are the 3x, 6x, 12x, 30x, 60x. Was scared though bc HCG wasn't listed on the bottle- but I think this is their way of getting around the FDA thingy...
