    Protein Shakes

    Are protein shakes allowed in P2? I had a baby 4 months ago and I am a full time working mom. I am having trouble finding any time to cook separate meals for myself. I only get enough time to cook for my 5 yo and my husband. To still keep having good amount of protein, I am planning to take protein powder mixed with water or coconut water. It will keep me full for longer time plus will cover the protein intake I am supposed to take each day. The one I am inclined towards is the Dymatize ISO 100 which is not sweet unlike other protein powders in the market.

    Please post your inputs. Appreciate it.

    No, protein shakes are not officially allowed (in 1950 probably did not exist when Dr. Simeons wrote his protocol), but I've used them when was lazy to cook but it was August-September so still warm outside. Not sure if I'd have them when it's cold.
    I would have a soup (water, celery, spices and fish or chicken) - works too! Good luck!

    It's totally off protocol but there are some people who use protein powders and if you go to the Vegetarian group on here you'll probably get some good recommendations. I'd be careful about the coconut water, however, it's pretty sugary for HCG.

    I use protein powders pretty often and I'm still loosing. You're going to want to avoid proteins with whey or casesin. Pretty much you're going to need to get a plant based protein powder. I have a pea protein (its cheaper than most) and I add the flavored stevia to it and spinach and 3 strawberries and its great.

    I use Jay Robbs Protein Powder in Straw and Chocolate with no problems with losses. I would avoid the coconut water. Just mix it with water and ice and stevia. I add strawberries into the shake as my fruit allowance for 1 meal and sometimes 1 tsp milk. Its not amazing, but it tastes ok. Since I also have a 1 year old and a husband I have to cook for, this is just easier for my food.

    I've heard that people have done it, just make sure that it has no sugar. But it is not on the original protocol. Keep us posted on how it goes.

    I use whey isolate and pepto pro mix and have no problems. Without it I def wouldn't get enough protein in. Just have to find what works for you. And yes, off original protocol.
