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.

      I will be making new posts during this whole process!

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY! (note this did not post properly so I am still  posting it after the fact)
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      Today I said I’m an XS or size 8 (Aust) at a clothing store. I never thought I’d say those words and say them with confidence. And when I commented a dress was too big on me I was told it was the smallest size. As was the belt I wanted. 
       
      I tried on a slim fitting singlet dress yesterday & was shocked to realise the lumpy bits on the dress were my hip bones. I have an hour glass shape so I always had hips but never ones that stuck out on the front of my body! 

      I’ve been a size 10 before - for about 5 minutes. While I am now confident about saying I’m an 8, clothes shopping is all still a bit freaky for me. It’s not that I’m focussed on the size on the label. I’m well aware the cut/line of the clothes and the designer’s style will dictate what size I need or if it will suit my body shape. The size is the starting point & it’s starting at an 8/XS/38 which is a big mind set change. It’s thinking a pair of pants will be too small & discovering they are almost too big. 

      While I’m still coming to terms with my actual new body shape and size, I’m very happy to be in this new reality.

        ...ah! I see you are from Brisbane! We lived there for a year when Mr. got a work contract there.

        I have fond (and not-so-fond, lol) memories of the weather there this time of year. It it crazy hot yet?

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      2. Arabesque

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

      3. Arabesque

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho
