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.

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!

I don't like Premier Protein shakes and they give me headaches. The artificial sweetners in a lot of low sugar Protein Shakes give me headaches.

Any recommendations for Protein shakes? Plant based prefered. Thanks!

I know it is quite a bit later for this answer but I just spoke with my dietician about this same thing. She suggested Orgain and Naked whey for Protein sources that do not have sucralose (I figured out I am sensitive to it). Orgain uses erythritol and stevia. Naked whey has actual cane sugar, so might want to double check if it fits your program.

I have lactose intolerance so I use OWYN plant based shakes. I found them the cheapest at BJs. Others on here pointed me toward Fairlife milk which is ultra processed, so higher in Protein. They might make shakes, but I’m happy with the milk. Sounds like you’ve a lot of tasting to do!

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
