I was also told to stop doing Protein Shakes and get my Protein from food very early on. I don't know if I really understand the reason and I know a lot of people who still do a Protein Shake for Breakfast. I suppose there is more pure nutrition in food than i a shake.

I don't remember the brand right now but there are also shakes that are more like juice -- I have the Fuzzy Naval flavor and it is really good. got it from the Vitamin Shoppe.

Syntrax Nectar has a fuzzy navel flavor and a lot of other fruit flavors and coffee flavors. I'm not a coffee drinker, but the fruity ones were relatively decent tasting and not heavy like a shake. I mixed them with plain yogurt for a while rather than making a drink...not terrible. They are 25+ grams of Protein no other calories, pretty much no Vitamins.

I also found packets of Isopure unflavored at costco- again only calories are protein, pretty much Vitamin free. Isopure mixes really well. I have used it in food and no one else notices, I do smell the Protein Powder smell though.

Overall I have stopped using shakes for now as I am nauseated by the taste. Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, eggs, chicken are some of my go tos.

How do people like the Pure Protein Shakes? I have a $3 off coupon, are they worth it?

I drink the Atkins Plus Protein. I like vanilla & chocolate. Hated premier and couldn't force myself to drink them. The Atkins plus Protein actually has a better protein vs carb aspect too.
I will look into that, if I recall the atkins one I tried had much less protein than premier...which I also do not love....

Regular Atkins is only 15g Protein, and not worth the struggle of getting a shake down. The Atkins plus protein are 30g so much better! Lol
Oh, I should add: the downside is that there are only 2 flavors- Creamy Vanilla and Milk chocolate. If you're good with either of those then I suggest giving one a try. Can't really hurt, right?

I’m three months out. I still drink them. Sometimes I make my own with Protein powder. If someone wanted me to stop, they would have to have a really good reason.

Hey I have a new variety of shake, you know after being on liquids SO LONG my palate is getting jaded, I think I have tried most all of them. Since I can't easily get the flavors I desire I reached out to something else I hadn't tried.
Ensure High Protein Shake, it actually doesn't have that processed evaporated taste I have grown to loathe.I got strawberry🍓because I'm allergic to chocolate and vanilla is BORING. Dang it actually tastes fine, and Ross Laboratory out of Columbus Ohio makes it, so almost a Hometown Product. Saw they also make a clear Protein Drink, I think the flavor is Blueberry Pomegranate, not tried it yet. But 16 grams Protein, 160 calories and of course they brag they contain 23 vitamins/ minerals. So Hurray for ME! Only bad thing , had to give $8 for the six pack, but the trade off is worth it!🍶
