Having trouble drinking all the protein Shakes, anyone found protein pills?



Recommended Posts

What is giving you trouble? The taste? Do they settle bad? I couldnt' find a good tasting one so I bought the ottawala protien drinks and I take 3/4 a serving (not a bottle) blend it with 1 cup goat's milk but any milk would do fine, 1 tbs of yogurt and 1/4 a banana then I add some ice and voila it's yummy. Here are the stats

This is for 1 serving. Like I said I get about 3 shakes out of a 2 serving bottle.

220 calories

4gm fat

27 carbs

18 protien

Plus you have to add in your info from your milk/banana/yogurt.

My goal is to be between 800-1000 calories/day eventually so this might be too many calories for you. You can always dilute it down with more skim milk and ice but it works for me.

Please let someone find a pill for Protein. I was just telling my mom the other day, whoever made a pill for protein would probably be very rich. Let me know if you find one and where.

Yeah, they come in chocolate too. I may have to break down and buy some . I want to order some whey gournet Peanut Butter and chcolate from netrition too, and the shipping is 4.99 for no matter how much stuff you order. Those crisps sound good to put into yogurt. I use Greek yogurt, because it has way less carbs and more Protein but it would be good to add a little more protein.

What about those protien bullets? For being so small they have alot of protien in them! Maybe that would be easier than a big shake..Just a thought.......

From what I have been told, the bullets are not 100% whey Protein so it won't be absorbed as efficiently.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
