    I was wondering what kind of issues are people having with whey? Like tummy or gains/no loss?

    What are your thoughts about Atkins protein shakes?

    I've switched to soy protein rather than whey after reading several articles recommending soy for women, whey for men. No issues.

    I use the jay robb whey protien.. I use vanilla and mix with some organic frozen strawberries and water.. It's so delicous.. Seriously tastes like a strawberry milk shake. I did two of these today and just love them. I also do the strawberry one and it's delish as well! I am only on day 2, weighed myself this Am and down 1lb. Even if it's a slower loss, I can at least stomach this shake..it's really delicious and would drink it even if I wasn't doing the hcg. It's got all natural ingredients and very low carbs. Not sure what specifically others experienced with this shake, but so far, so good.

    I just had a vanilla whey Jay Robb shake for lunch. I mix mine in the blender with coffee and ice.
    I'm scared to see what the scale says tomorrow, but it was delicious!

    hey fellow veg heads! i've been using the OL pea vanilla protein shakes (cas they're vegan), and i really like them. they work great with an apple or 3-4 frozen organic strawberries.
    i wouldn't use the animal protein ones, but doesn't Jay Rob have vegan shakes? they are more expensive than the OL pea so i would love the hear any one's experiences on them before i try them. And there's another organic, vegan name brand shake that's pricey too, but i worry it's plain flavor will be yucky!! anyone tried those flavored stevia drops? just musing...

    I use Garden of Life raw protein powder. It's vegan and low in calories 80 and carbs and high in protein.

    I just tried plain pea powder for the first time today because thats what most a reccomending. I added a bit of stevia, and a few blueberries because i was out of strawberries. It was soooo gross. I hope it taste better when i can add strawberries. I really like the fact that it has like 10 more grams of protein per scoop than the other one i was using. i think i wasnt getting enough protein before

    Yeah I can't imagine what the plain flavor tastes like!! But today was my vlcd1 and the vanilla OL pea even with cinnamon and apple I suddenly don't find it appealing anymore! But I really liked it last time! Idk what 's wrong with me now!!!
    I gotta get another kind tomorrow. Maybe I can try the chocolate, even though it's a bit more caloric.

    I use Whey Protein Isolate by NOW Sports and buy it online at Amazon. The ingredients are whey protein isolate and soy lecithin and that's it. I figure the soy lecithin is okay since Melba toast has it, too.

    I blend it with strawberries or orange juice and ice. I stopped it for a while because I had stopped losing but I'm not really sure what the reason was I had stopped losing. I need something to alternate with egg whites!

    Just a thought about mixing with the orange juice, maybe u stopped losei g because the juice is pure sugar.. Natural sugar, but still.
    I started to juice a while back after watching the documentary SICK, FAT AND NEARLY DEAD ( I think that's the name of it ??)
    And I remember something about how juice's micro nutrients getting absorbed so fast. And that's good for somethings in some circumstances. But in this case on this diet we'd rather a slow release into our system to stay satiated. And we def don't want so much sugar floating around!!
    I think that the strawberries have less sugar and fiber and so they're more filling than orange juice.

    Yesterday I was really naughty!! I ate 4 large donuts!!!
    So up a pound today! And it's only VLCD 3!!!!!

    But I got the OL Pea protein in chocolate cas I quess I got tired of the vanilla that worked perfectly last time! But this one has more carbs and I think a few more cals. But I'll try it this week and let u know.

    I liked the vanilla op pea cas it's really low in cal 105, 2-3 sugars, and hardly any carbs. And it was great mixed with apple or strawberries.
    I don't know what the chocolate will taste like mixed w fruit. So that's kinda a con. But maybe it'll taste good enough w/o fruit and I can save those cals?...

    But, i love the convenience of shakes. I don't know how else I'd be able to do this w/o them.

    @esme, you know that we all sometimes stall or gain for no fault. And especially later in the protocol. We just keep on keeping on and it finally works it self out.
