Protein shake recommendations



Recommended Posts

I believe they all have some type of artificial sweeteners. You might have to make your own with unflavored Protein.

Or, if you know exactly which sweetener gives you headaches, you could avoid that particular one.

Good luck.

Thank you! I find that I can tolerate Monk Fruit, stevia leaf and erythritol (not sure if we can use this) but not acesulfame-k and aspartame.Sucralose is questionable for my body as well. Unfortunately thats the majority of Protein Shakes.

Making my own shakes may have to be my alternative.

My wife also gets Migraines from artificial sweeteners. It is always aspartame and Sucralose but she doesn't like the taste any of them.

I don't prefer them either but they don't effect me physically.

Good luck, I wish I had motivation to make my own shakes. haha

Agree with @kcuster83, just about all flavored powders, shakes, and drinks have artificial sweeteners in them. I'd recommend using an unflavored powder and adding it to things and/or making your own shakes. I'm not aware of a plant based flavorless powder, though I'm sure they exist. I used Isopure.

This brand in my hands down favorite. I can 't stomach a lot of them, but this one is good. I use a lot of their prodicts.

I have heard a lot about Isopure and will look into this. Thanks!

I can sympathize with your wife. The migraines just aren't worth it to me. I'm not quite sure if I will have the motivation to make them everyday myself. Haha I will look for other alternatives. Thanks and stay well!

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
