I've used Muscle Milk Light powder on and off for about a year now and I'm finishing a jug so I figured now would be a good time to switch if there is something better our there. I figured my MFP pals could point me in the right direction! Right now I get about 25g of protein per serving and that's with about 210 calories per serving. Is there a better protein powder out there that is low cal? I only decided on Muscle Milk before because it was a brand name that I knew and had heard of.

Thanks for any help!

Bump, I would be interested in the answer as well.

I like BSN Syntha-6 (200 cals) and BSN Lean Dessert (about 120 cals), I haven't had a bad flavor yet.

Trutein, Myofusion, Optimum Nutrition; in that order. Trutein is a blend (whey, egg, casein) and I'm currently using the Cinnabun flavor. It's great and in my opinion, much better than the other two I mentioned. 120 cal @ 24p / 5c 1f

I just started uing GNC Casein Protein in chocolate. It has 160 calories & 25 grams of protein per serving. Seems a little pricey, but I've never bought any before so I'm not sure. I put it in the blender with 10oz of light soy milk, 2 or 3 ice cubes & 1/2 of a banana. YUM! I drink it at night & tummy's full when I go to bed.

Xocai High-Antioxidant Meal Replacement Shake - chocolate only, but there are about 20 different recipes on how to mix it. We like it with frozen banana & "powdered" peanut butter. I use water, but some like it with non fat milk, soy milk, almond milk - whatever. The information requested & listed below is for the shake mix ONLY:
Calories- 190
Total Fat - 3g
Carbs - 20g
Protein - 21g
ORAC: 56,500 per meal (RDA = 10,000) this is what helps your body repair from the inside out, going after the Free Radicals that are absorbed into your body
Made with Whey Protein Isolate, lots of fiber, natural cacao, acai berry, blueberry, etc. SUGAR FREE, CAFFEINE FREE, DIABETIC FRIENDLY! Oh yes, did I mention Lactose & Gluten Free. A natural, cold-pressed Omega-3 source.

Do the research: This is a safe product! HEALTHY! Actual weight loss study done - 12 week study with 50 people - average lbs lost were 31.

Designer Whey is 100% whey protein. Mixes well. I love the double chocolate flavor best.1 scoop = 100 calories // 2g fat // 3g carbs .5g // sugar 2g // protein 18g <<< for double chocolate plus it is gluten free if you care

I like the Jay robb line. I've done both the whey and egg white protein. It's not made with hormones or antibiotics and uses stevia.

1 scoop = 110 calories

I've never heard of Trutein but I looked it up and it's supposed to be pretty good... I knew Optimum Nutrition is always a good choice but I'm not sure which one would be best for me... I work out 3-4 hours before bed so should I take a whey protein which is absorbed fast or a blended protein like trutein post workout? I would like it to help immediately and get me through the night.

I was also impressed with the Jay Robb line! That could be something to look into as well!

This! I have only used his whey protein powders in both chocolate and vanilla. It's a tad pricey but worth it IMO. One scoop has 110 cals, 25 grams protein, 1 g carbs and 0 sugar. I have a protein shake every day using that and nut butter of some kind plus almond milk.

Yeah it looked like it was one of the best out there, but it was just more expensive. I really like that it was pretty low in carbs so it was packed with protein without many carbs... I may have to fork out a little extra money for this product.

How does it taste?

I use a generic Kroger brand powder that I believe has 20-25 grams of protein for about 120 calories. It was relatively cheap, and the vanilla is pretty tasty. I haven't tried any other flavors yet.

I think they taste pretty good. I normally add peppermint extract or instant coffee but when I've had the shake plain I thought it was fine.

Finally tried them both and the trutein cinnabon tasts as good as advertised! If you don't like the taste of protein powders but want the protein this one is for you! The Optimum Nutrition isn't bad either and was perfect after a workout!

I just looked into Designer Whey Aria Women's Protein. 80 kcals per serving. 2g fiber, 14g protein, 1g sugar. Looks pretty decent. I love to have a good shake once in a while but all of the ones I've come across are 130+ kcals, then I add milk, and it's just too much for my calorie goal. This Aria may be the ticket for me! :)

LOL happen to work for NB? Sure sounds like you do...


Nature's Best is a very good product. I used it for awhile..
Optimum Nutrition is Also a very good product.

Currently my favorite and what im using now is Dymatize Hydrolyzed ISO-100 Whey Protein.

All the above are abit more pricy compared to designer whey, muscle milk, body fortess, or any other protein you can easily get from Chain supermarkets...


But as they say and this is true for protein.... You get what you pay for..
