Protein powder recommendations?



Recommended Posts

Hello,

Of all the Protein powders on the photo I posted, can you guys recommend what you think is the tastiest, or even if you think one is terrible, let me know! Im trying to avoid the trial and error!

This is a list that my NUT gave me to get started on.

@@boosh10 I am still a couple of months away from my surgery and I purchased a ton of samples of different brands and forms of Protein. I still have quite a few samples to try, but my favorite powdered Protein so far without a doubt is Muscle Milk Cookies & Cream. I've already tried the chocolate and Bananas & Cream of the ready-made liquid Protein shakes by "Oh Yeah", I liked the chocolate, but the banana was just "ok". I tried all the flavors of "UnJury", and I love all of them. I also purchased about 12 different flavors of "Davinci and Torani" sugar-free syrups to mix with plain greek yogurt and unflavored protein powders.< /p>

I'll keep posting my opinions on the other ones as I try them.

I use the Unjury every day for Breakfast, and to supplement my Protein when needed. I also used it pre-op and loved it then too. I mix it up with sugar-free Torani flavorings, and sometimes make it up with espresso and freeze it, so when I put it in my bullet I get a frappucino - SO good! Anyway, I tried a bunch of others and didn't like them as well, and none were as low calorie and high protein as Unjury. I tried several flavors of Isopure pre made and hated them all, but that's just me. I know a lot of people who loved them. Good luck!

This week I tried the sample packs of the Syntrax nectar Naturals. I was pleasantly surprised that I really liked them. I mixed them with milk for breakfast in the morning, and they were quite amazing. I also bought 10 sample packs of the Syntrax Nectar Regulars and I'll start trying them tomorrow. I'm going to get brave and try mixing a few of them with Water and see how they taste. I haven't made any with Water yet because I found mixing them with milk and then pouring it over ice in my to go cup is just awesome.

Will report back soon.

I can't stand any of the powders anymore. My nut suggested Isopure black tea and I have to say I love it! 40 grams in a bottle and I split it up during the day. So I mix half isopure with more iced tea and get my liquids and Protein all in one.

OMG!!! I just had to rush here this morning to report on my Protein shake for this morning. After a recent NUT visit I ordered 15 different flavors of Davinci and Torani sugar-free Flavored syrups. My NUT told me that are a great way to sweeten up just about anything. Well this morning I gave it a try for the first time.

I used a single serving of Syntrax Nature Naturals Strawberries & Cream Protein powder, 8 oz. of milk, and 2 TBSP of the chocolate flavored Syrup, blended them all together and poured it over a large glass of ice.

HOLY COW!!! It was amazing!!! It was like drinking a fantastic chocolate covered strawberry. At this rate I may start my liquid only diet 2 MONTHS early! :lol: I can't wait to try another concoction. I have 15 different flavors of syrup to mix and match with milk, plain greek yogurt, and all the different flavors of Protein powders that I have.

So excited!!! :D

I may even start a recipe book with all the different combinations that I come up with.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
