I found MY protein of choice!

I am so excited to finally say that I found a protein powder that works for me! It has only been around 3 months, but I did it. I was beginning to think I would never find something that I could get down. I am starting to get the hairloss part of being a post-op so I thought this might be the time to get in my protein. I went around and found that GNC had little samples of this protein powder so I tried it in Vanilla and I was actually able to get it down, easily! I tried it at my moms, so on the way home I stopped and picked up the same brand but in chocolate. The Vanilla is GOOD...but it tastes like cake batter to me and I knew it was something I would get sick of fast. The chocolate is really good. I have had it everyday for lunch this week. It doesn't get foamy at all, and it is the consistency of say chocolate milk. I will get the vanilla next week, because since I am a fan of EggFace, I can not wait to start copying some of her yummy protein shake recipes. I will us the vanilla on days I put sugar free syrup in there to change the flavor. Another great item I picked up at GNC is the shaker ball cup! I heard from many that is the trick to protein shakes so they do not get foamy. It works, I love it, and I use it everyday. I am actually going to get one or 2 more of those because it works so well. I suggest anyone that uses protein shakes to get one of those cups that way they do not have to get out the blender for just a regular shake...keep that for days that you blend some fresh fruit in there! If I can get out of taking my blender apart to clean it...I will. The cup is just so much easier and you can take it with you and not have to worry about anything! Soo...if anyone is having trouble getting in their shakes, I suggest trying this one. It is really yummy (to me...everyone is different) and remember, they have a little pack of it to try. OH OH OH...the guy told me do not use the 3 scoops it suggests, he says 1 is enough because you will just be wasting the powder, your body can only absorb so much at one time. Sooo...1 scoop is all you need! If you try this, or have tried it...let me know what you thought of it!


  1. I have 4 of the cups... Love them!

  2. Who would of ever thought a little metal ball would mix something so well? LMAO

  3. You're making me want to enter this world of protien shakes! I'll have to figure out where we have a GNC in this bity town.
