  2. Good luck on the diet! I want before and afters of everyone. Maybe some progression shots too!

    You may just need to try a different protein powder. That's what I eat every day for breakfast and It's super yummy. My husband blends his up like you did, with spinach. I just mix it with rice or soy milk and pour it over fruit because I need something to chew.

  3. Shan - What kind of protein powder do you use? Is it grainy when you blend it up?

  4. No, no soy proteins I've ever bought have been grainy. I was on a mission a while ago to find something other than soy (worried a little about about ovarian cancer) and tried a brown rice protein powder that was grainy and nasty. I've tried egg white proteins, called casein protein. It is also not my favorite. The cheapest that you can just get at Walmart or anywhere is EAS. I buy one that's made for the local American Family grocery store that's cheap and good. If you want to find one that has the least amount of carbs, you could go to a GNC, where you will find a dozen different ones to choose from. (That may be what you did before.) But if you have a GNC, and walk in there and ask them, they will try and sell you whey protein. I can't do whey. It makes me break out... but whey protein is more easily absorbed by the body. TMI? and not really answering your question at all! You have to be careful though not to accidentally buy a weight gain or meal replacement. A lot of them have so many carbs and fat that they are really meal replacements and not just protein.

  5. Shan - good to know. I just bought it at my local grocery store and did not like it at all. I'll try GNC and see what they recommend.
