I like the Special K high protein shakes. They don't taste like medicine at least as far as my taste buds go.

Thanks Amanda.. I was thinking bout those but I had never tried them. I've arrived there ceral years ago and did not like it . so I was Leary to try any other product. But I'll give them a shot.

My dietician recommended vega sport recovery. I don't mind it but all protein powders leave lots to be desired. I put it in my morning smoothie, or my 24oz protein shaker cup. They all say 8oz of liquid, but thats like drinking chalk so i thin it out.

Thanks newty and gotobef..are these available anywhere or online ?

Most pharmacies/health stores have them, but usually only one or two. Truthfully i ordered my last 3 from amazon about a week ago. Its expensive so i dont have it every day

Jan 12, 2016 1:18 PM

I don't mind ordering online. But like u I have to space them out. Thanks for the info..I'm gonna look them up. I need varity so I don't get bored with stuff. And I hate that medicine taste most protien has..

I put the vanilla in my smoothies and i bought the berry one for when i don't want to eat first thing but do want to get my workout in. Then I'll just use my protein drink as my water bottle. I have heard good things about the chocolate one, my mom really likes it, but having an intolerance to cocoa i haven't tried it.

I like premier protein shakes.. I get them at Sam's club for about $18 for 20 of them. Very reasonable. 30 GMs protein and I think just like 6 GMs of sugar. Sugar causes inflammation for me, so I try to keep it very low. But the taste is awesome. I get chocolate flavor, add a tablespoon of instant coffee, and then 1 pack of stevia or your preferred sweetener. And I add ice and blend. It's like a frappe. Relish!!

I'm gonna check that out sleepingbeauty. Costco, eh?

This is coming from two ladies I know that have fibro. Both have nixed any shakes that come from mixes. They have diff. Docs, but very young docs. Their docs advised never to use processed store bought products . As they tend to make the pain worse. For protien they stick to eggs, one has her own chickens, the other buys free range. Both say the extra cost in buying or raising them are cheaper than all the pain meds. One of the girls took 12 weeks to wean herself off processed foods and now only take meds on rare occasions. The older one used oils for her pain. Just a thought that I have seen work.

Thank you zetarlov..I actuy know a lady who has chicks so I may try it.

Jan 13, 2016 9:54 AM

Also, try cutting down on white sugar. They both use honey and some of the foods they make are yummy, even the glutton free stuff. I'm just flat out lazy or I cut the glutton more. And i am addicted to pop so not giving that up. Lol

Jan 13, 2016 10:23 AM

Lol..I also.do honey as a sweetner. I've had gastric bypass so sugar doesn't always agree with me.. The gluten free thing..I've tries some products and uhhh.I can't right now..lol
