Thread: Protein Shakes: Recommendations for a Tasty One, Anyone?

    Protein Shakes: Recommendations for a Tasty One, Anyone?

    This is to follow my previous posting of VCLD diet and HCG.

    It has been recommended that if I am vegetarian, I should consider supplementing the protocol with a
    protein shake. The one I used for my diet in years previously (and successfully) contains fructose which
    is not on protocol. I was on a non-HCG diet and used this. I can honestly say that this is probably one
    of the best tasting shakes I have ever tried (and I have tried scads.) Most shakes have aspartame which
    is not healthy.

    Can anyone recommend a delicious shake...so delicious that if I were not on protocol I would still
    want to drink it?

    No aspartame or sucralose, please. No funny aftertastes, if possible.

    Thank you so much!

    PS I heard there had to be a ratio of protein to carbs in these shakes? Does anyone know what that is?

    I use this one. It's delicious!! http://www.swansonvitamins.com/growi...t-16-4-oz-pwdr


    or you can also use this one that has no flavor but has less carbs and add a few drops of stevia or vanilla stevia http://www.swansonvitamins.com/growi...069&csp=GNT005

    I have read that some use Jay Robb protein shakes for P2. They are sweetened with stevia. I could be wrong but I don't think brown rice would be appropriate for P2. Personally I like Jay Robb and have used both the whey based and egg white based for P3. They are expensive but you can go to jayrobb.com and buy the sample 5 packs to try them out. They have a 5 pack for the egg whites and also for the whey based. I think they are around $13.xx per 5 pack. They also offer free shipping on orders of $25 or more. I think GNC also sells the individual packs. After you find out which ones you prefer you can buy the larger packs at a better price per shake.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for the leads on good tasting protein shakes...it is difficult to get things here...but I
    will do a search.

    Hope others will keep adding to the thread as it is difficult to find good tasting shakes without aspartame
    and other additives.

    All best wishes!

    EAS Advantage Carb Control, pre mixed shakes. Only 100 calories, 17 grams of protein, 0 sugars, 3 carbs and 2.5 fat.
    These come Chocolate, strawberry and vanilla and are pretty darn good. You can get them at Walmart, Walgreens and just about any grocery store.

    Thank you for your response, AprilCherie....and everyone else.

    The problem is that so many great brands are not sold in the UK. You have to order them from
    the USA and it takes at least two weeks to get product. Now, the US has hiked up postage costs
    so much that often the postage is more than the product! I will still search for any leads, so
    thank you so much for your suggestions!

    I just have never found anything that tastes as good as my old diet shake with fructose.

    HOOOOOOOORAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Okay, everyone who reads this. I tried at least three brands of whey or other protein ...two on HCG protocol. I tried One World Whey and Sun Warrior. The first was too sweet and a really bad aftertaste.
    The second was gritty with a bad aftertaste.

    I was reaching my the end of my rope...and finally, after a lot of of searching found someone in the UK who had Jay Robb as a previous person suggested (Silver 3006...thank you!!)

    Well....glory be!!!! It has a tiny, tiny twinge of an aftertaste, but not enough to make that bit of a difference. And it was at least 100 percent better than the others. I used the JR Egg White Vanilla. It has 25 grams of protein with 4 carbs.

    If you dislike Stevia (which I do)...or find it a bit galling in taste...do not even waste your money.
    Go Jay Robb.

    Hope this helps.
