Agree! ...

Also try Atkins shakes, they aren't that bad and are low carb, low sugar!

Hi. I also have pcos and am insulin resistant. I have been having good results with eating low carb and exercising daily (6 days). For protein shakes, I use Atkins and EAS Carb Control shakes. I also use Atkins protein bars. I use Splenda (sucralose), Truvia (stevia), or Sweet 'n Low (saccarine) in place of sugar. I do not use Nutrisweet (aspartame) because I have read that it reacts in your body just like sugar.

How are the flavors? Also a good protein shake is nature's way reset.

I did not care for the Vanilla in the Atkins.

I use the Visalus Body by Vi shakes and they are good. I like that you can make them any flavor you want, it's non-GMO soy, and low carb. I'm also PCOS and having a hard time losing weight, but the shakes are helping, even if it is slower than I would like!

I wasn't fond of the Vanilla at first, but now I like it. Kind of like going from regular soda to diet. The chocolate shakes are pretty good and I really like the EAS Strawberry. I think you just have to try them for yourself and decide what you like best.

I also have been using the Visalus Body by Vi shakes. Tastes delicious, makes me get some nutrition for breakfast and keeps me full until lunch.

You can get it on amazon!

Costco sells a good one...Premier Nutrition Protein chocolate shake. 160 calories, 30 gms protein and only 5 carbohydrates. 3 fibers. It has worked good for me to have on hand so when I work long hours and can't get away for my planned meal, I don't grab the high carb crackers that are around. I have searched and this is the best one I have found and the cost is minimal. Good luck. I have been working on the low carb diet for my type 2.
