I currently use Whey Protein for her by Puritans Pride. So far, I’ve been happy with the results and it’s only 90 calories per serving. I’m almost done with my second can and I was wondering if you had any other suggestions on brands to try.

@Cummins59: I am by no means an expert on this, and I’m fairly sporadic in my protein use, but my favorite is Vega One. It’s vegan and has 2-3 servings of greens in it I believe. I often just add it to oatmeal or smoothies, but on its own mixed with water it’s actually pretty good and not as watery as other powders.

I’ve heard Vega is good, but it’s pretty expensive. I have Fitmixer vanilla milkshake flavor and it’s pretty good and has a good protein to calorie ratio (1/2 scoop = 16g protein, 80 calories).

@Cummins59: I use Intek Protein Evolution and the Isolate Evolution. The Protein one is slower releasing. The isolate is for more immediate, like right before or after a workout. My favorite thing about it is that it is low carb. Only 2g Carbs per serving, 140 cal, and 29g protein (that’s the isolate).
I should add, my stomach is really sensitive to protein powders and this brand is the most gentle for me.

Love bodylogix whey protein, available at most Walgreens, or amazon
- Sourced from grass-fed cows in New Zealand.
- Free of bovine growth hormone and antibiotics.
- GMO free IP soy lecithin.
- Cold processed cross-flow microfiltration whey proteins.
- tastes amazing (both chocolate and vanilla)

Blue Bonnet Whey. It’s expensive ($40 a tub), but delicious and worth it.

I have been drinking Vi-shake. I love the taste of it and it make me feel full at night that I hardly need to eat.

I just started using this a week or so ago, so I don’t have any long term reviews, but so far I really like Nature’s Best Isopure. They make a zero-carb version, but I like the Dutch Chocolate (best price I’ve found at that link), so that one is low-carb. It’s whey protein — one scoop is 110 calories, 25 grams protein, half a gram of fat, ~1 or less gram of digestible carbs, and 25% of most vitamins. The actual recommended serving is two scoops, but I’ve just been doing one.

@Cummins59: Paleo Pro! I’m allergic to Whey (makes me sick as a dog!), and because it is totally natural and lactose-free, it’s worked awesome for me. Pretty pricey, though.

@Cummins59: maybe it’s not what you are looking for but I am sooo happy I learned this. And my taste buds appreciate it too. Instead of protein powder, I do Greek yogurr shakes with berries. Might not work for on the go moments but it works great for breakfast and snacks when I am home!
1 cup nonfat greek yogurt. The brand I use has 24 grams of protein per cup.
1/3 cup frozen berries
1/2 cup non fat milk which is like 3 more grams and depending how many calories I have to plat with depending on workout schedule, I also add a reaspoon of almond butter or a few raw almonds and put everything in the blender.
It adds up to about 30 grams of pretty lean and natural protein. Plus they taste yummy 🙂
Sometimes after a hard evening workout my stomach doesn’t feel like eating heavy food so I’ll just have a shake and call it a day. I sometimes add spinach in the mix. Sounds awful but it doesn’t taste too bad

@Cummins59: Love the whey protein that is the Whole Foods brand.
