Protein check

What have you found to be the most mixable?

I'm tired of using a blender and tired of spending $4 for a premixed one of 42 grams.

I'm about to get some Optimum Nutrition and try that.

I'm sitting here looking at my clear shaker of Crystal Light and some offbrand of Whey looking at little clumps of protein floating around in it. I've been shaking it for minutes.

Designer Whey with water is pretty good. You have to use a blender though.

You can get 5 lbs. of Designer Whey off of E-bay for $27 a pop. Go over and look for a guy selling under the name Clayton Nutrition, he'll hook you up. I've bought from him 3 times and its always good. No out of date product or anything like that. The stuff is $10 a pound at GNC.

Get a shaker. I've used the GNC brand whey and now I have Vitamin World's Precision Engineered whey, with 8 oz of 50/50 whole milk and water with 2 cubes of ice(agitators) and it mixes good with no clumps. IMO the GNC brand tastes better that VW's. By the way, I got my shaker from GNC, it came with this 'grate' that goes between the lid and jar to help mix the liquid.

I've tried to mix both with a spoon before and the GNC mixes fairly good but took too much work to get rid of the lumps.

Designer Protein w/ water. Go to target and buy one of those skinny little electric hand-held mixers. All you need is the mixer, two scoops of protein and some water and you can mix it in the cup you put the water in.

I got a shaker, the Designer Protein still clumps. Big ol' 1 qt rubber maid container/shaker.

I'll try your trick of the ice cubes to act as an agitator. Sounds like a plan.

I got hooked on the EAS protein juice shit, but like I said, 4 bucks a pop gets expensive. Cuts into my lotto money.

All protein powders taste like shit. Maybe I'll try mixing it with Guinness.

Labrada ProV60 is the best ever IMO. Mixed in a blender with ice and 2% milk, you will have a shake that tastes like something from Dairy Queen..... no BS. In fact, go buy a tub of it and if you aren't satisfied with the taste I will buy what's left from you.

Ha. I didn't even think of Labrada's stuff. I'll have to give it a whirl. I'll use it up, even if it sucks.

I knew Lee waaayyyy back in the early 80s, we both worked out in a little hole in the wall place called, "Better Bodies Of Texas".

He had one *HOT* girlfriend back then.

What's the carb count on that stuff? Usually the one's that taste good are too high in sugar to use while dieting.

There is chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. They are all damn good and the vanilla does even better with a bananna and some peanut butter thrown in the blender with it.

When you are 40, it amounts to keeping what you have. lol

Actually with running, biking, swimming, weights it is about maintenance.

I actually haven't drunk a beer this entire year (a record 8 days in a row!), so I miss out on 600 calories a day. ha

30% protein
60% carbs
10% fat

3000 calorie diet
900 cals for protein
1800 cals for carbs
300 cals for fats

225 grams of protein
450 grams of carbs
33 grams of fat

And I still lose weight.

hrmmm...... I may give it a try. The ProV60 is damn good but sometimes it gets old going to all the trouble making a shake. For one serving of the ProV60 you get 60g of protein, either 12 or 14g of carbs, a shitload of potassium, and the rest of it I can't remember. There is an emty tub of it somewhere around here..... if I can find it I will post up the details.
