Premier protein shakes. GOOD OR BAD?



Recommended Posts

I've been having trouble hitting my Protein goals so I started incorporating shakes again into my diet. I used to get GNC lean 25 shakes but recently tried Premier Protein shakes and really liked the flavor and they're slightly cheaper so Im thinking to switch to them. Does anyone else use them to supplement their diet and have weight loss with them?

I used them all through and still drink them occasionally. My program recommends them. I like vanilla and caramel the best.

Premier Protein is very highly regarded. Unjury ready to drink is what I have used from day one. No aftertaste

The variety, overall flavor and Protein amount per serving when compared to other Liquid Protein drink options make Premier Protein shakes a TOP selection in my opinion. If you buy them at Sams or costco, they are also very affordable. I just can't deal with the gritty texture and awful taste of powdered "you mix it yourself" Protein Drinks no mater how long I mix them in a blender. I have tried all 8 flavors, some I really LOVE and a couple are a one and done experience. My overall favorite is chocolate with Cookies/Cream and Strawberries/Cream coming in a close 2nd and 3rd. I have yet to try their new line that contains oats, the flavors look interesting, will give them a try once they are available in my area.

To get my daily protein fix, I plan to use the Clear Protein line (Orange Mango is my favorite) during the pre/post op clear fluids only stage and use the normal Premier Protein Shakes when I can use the thicker liquids.

There web site has a large number of user submitted recipe, amazing what you can do with these shakes.

I drink only Premier. I use vanilla in my coffee. Use regularly Cafe Latte, caramel, peaches & cream, bananas & cream. Tired of chocolate for now. Get from costco when on sale. Otherwise get from Amazon. But compare prices from different sellers as can vary. I occasionally use Peach clear Protein. Need to use 1/2 & mix with Water or too sweet

I'm not a huge fan of Premier - they seem a little more chemically than the Protein Shakes I make myself. I only use Syntrax Protein Powder - it's the only one I found that blends well and has no aftertaste.

However, everyone has different tastes when it comes to shakes. If you like PP, stick with it!

Recommended by the Bariatric program and I love the following flavors:

Bananas and Cream, vanilla, chocolate and strawberries and cream.

I use the vanilla in my hot black tea. I love that a lot.
