Looking for Whey Protein Mix recommendations....



Recommended Posts

Before I spend alot of money on a mix, I am looking for some brand/flavor recommendations. Someone recommended Gold Standard that he got from GNC. I am thinking of sticking with vanilla so I can add other items to it.. I think chocolate might be too fake tasting and I would get sick of it after a while.

Any suggestions are appreciated!

Have you ever tried Spirutein? They have tons of flavors and you can usually get them in individual packets to try before buying a whole tub. If you have a trader joes, whole foods or natural foods store near you - you can get them there.

I am sure they sell them other places but I don't know if you can get them at most regular grocery stores or not.

I like Muscle Milk Light. I try to stray away from powders as I really hated them pre-op, and I hate them now. I also drink Labrada RTD.

I use the GNC Pro Performance 100% Whey and the EAS 100% Whey. They are both pretty tasty in chocolate with a half a banana and some Peanut Butter (I use PB2, the powdered peanut butter)!

I like Syntrax Nectars. (http://www.si03.com/). If you email the company and ask about samples, they used to have a deal where you could buy a sampling of flavors for about $1.00 a packet.

They have a lot of different products, make sure you are looking at the Nectars. Most are 90 calories, 0 carbs and 23 grams of Protein per serving. A few are 100 calories. I've been told that our bodies can't use more than about 25 grams of Protein at a time, so more would just be wasted (waisted?).

I think the nectars are a bit too weak in flavor, so I mix them with Powerade zero or crystal light.. YMMV.

I really like Gold Standard Double chocolate. For vanilla I get Dymatize brand. One thing I would caution about adding things to the vanilla or any flavor really is watching the calories. Esp. if the shake will be a snack vs a meal. FYI I do add half a scoop vanilla to fat free greek yoghurt with fruit that I have everyday for Breakfast (also add splendra as ff greek yoghurt is rather sour). Personally I find Vitamin Shoppe to have better pricing.

I have been using GNC Amplified Wheybiolic Advanced 60. I give you 60 grams of Protein in one shake and I use it to replace eating breakfast. I usually get the chocolate but they have it in an array of different flavors and so far I have been extremely satisfied with it.

I don't usually add anything to my Protein shakes, mainly because of the added calories but also because they tend to be so heavy just by themselves it would be impossible to drink the whole thing!!

Hope you find something you like!! :D

To me, all the powders are gross, every brand, every flavor, it's just grainy, and when you blend it, it gets weird and foamy. I liked the pre-mixed Myoplex Lite the best..

I never mixed anything in though.. the shakes already have a lot of calories.

Dlynn, my nut said the body can only process abt 30 g of Protein at a time...so I wonder about ur shake mix being effective. I'd love to get all my recommended dose of protein for breakfast! Did ur nut recommended that to u?

Hi I use a product called Intergrated and it is whey isolates. it comes in different flavors my favorite is chocolate and Also coffee Ice cream flavored. I'm also from New Jersey

I get mine from Hardcore in Manahawkin, its a nutritional shop. They were really great there they let me taste a lot of different types, and this was one that was good, no after taste, not grainy either. I put it in the Magic bullet and mix it up. its really good. MY nutritionist told me that Unjury is another good product. Its a little costly, and you can only order it online I just received my order last week and it is really good. I just found this other website its called Bariatric eating.com and they sell products there also. I havent tried them yet but I plan on it in the near future. Goood Luck hope this helps a little..

I like DesignerWhey Protein...I get the 4lb jug online for about $40. It has 20 grams of Protein & 100 calories...low on sugar too. I actually enjoy it with skim milk. Mixes very well in my plastic blenderball shaker. I find it in local grocery stores too in case I need it quickly and can't wait for my online order. I also tried Unjury...very, very good but expensive.

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
