Which protein is best for "our" needs?



Recommended Posts

I tried "Optimum Nutrition" Platinum Hydro whey - Turbo Choclate flavour. It is quick dissolving, non gritty, no after taste. Lovely taste. But a bit too sweet for me. But otherwise very good. Very expensive. However no PDCAAS rating though !

Whey in general has a PDCAAS score of 1.000 , the best score possible.

You should try...About Time Protein powder' date=' you can get it a GNC. It has 25g of Protein, 103 calories - no artificial sugars, no artificial flavors, no grow hormones, gluten free, zero carbs, zero fat. It is 100% Whey protein isolate, which I hear is supposed to be good for us.

Did I mention it taste great?!?! I use it in my smoothies, that include kale/collard greens and pineapples with the "About Time" Protein powder added, it's like a pina colada. :P You can also mix it with Water in a Blender Bottle. I paid 30 for a 2lb container. I hope this helps.[/quote']

Letty1 what's your recipe for smoothie with greens? I gotta get me my greens!!!

My favorite powder Protein is Body Fortress Whey Protein Isolate vanilla creme....

My favorite RTD is premier Protein shakes in chocolate.

I just found this protein the other day at Walmart...I got the vanilla for starters....what a nice change from Bariatric Advantage! It's not thick so I like that!

I'm a little scared, because a lot of you said nectar is great, well I'm going to have my surgery soon, and I was trying a last ditch diet!! But anyway I learned I really don't like the taste of Protein Shakes, I mean I put frozen berries in, almond milk, ice and it still tastes awful. If I don't like this is there any that I could possibly like, do I have to drink Protein shakes after having this surgery.

My favorite RTD is VPX Protein Rush but it is a little pricey. I had surgery 6 weeks ago and over the past few weeks my tastes have changed and I couldn't stand the taste of my Protein Powder anymore no matter what I did to it. I went to GNC and they recommended Amplify because the taste was different than most powders. I got the chocolate to try and its awesome, no aftertaste.

After a while you get more used to it.

I made a good shake (my husband tried for the 1st time ever and he liked it)

Syntrax nectar carribean cooler with pineapple and banana and coconut Water (it called for coconut milk) tasted just like a pina coloda minus alcohol lol

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      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)
