Hello everyone,

I'm starting to come around to the idea of making a protein shake every now and then since I am doing a lot of intense work outs and starting to lift more weights. Are there any sugar free protein powders? I really have no clue what I'm looking into and don't know what's out there.

Also, I am a woman, so is it better to eat whey or soy protein? Or some of that hemp or egg protein?

Help me break into the world of giant tubs of powder.

Also, are they all flavored? I don't want things to taste like cake or icecream!

Yes there are many, but you have to watch what is used to sweeten it instead. If you have no problem with certain artificial sweeteners then it's ok.

Majority of them have very low to no sugar in them anyhow.

The big thing to watch is sodium content as it varies greatly. The ones I use have 30 to 50g per serving but I've seen ones with sodium as his as 500g per serving!!!

Men and women do not need different protein powders. Whey is usually your best bet :] Most are sugar free or low suagr. I would recommend Optimum Nutrition Breand or Isofuel

I use MRM Whey Protein Powder. I like the Vanilla flavor. They also make one that is Whey & Flax and Vanilla Nut flavor. Both are sweetened with stevia and are 100% natural. I buy them from iHerb.com. One scoop is around 90 calories and has only 2-3 grams of sugar.

I'll give you two of my protein shake recipes. One with powder, one without:

1 scoop designer whey chocolate (I don't think it has sugar)
1 cup milk
1 cup frozen strawberries
cal-230 pro-26 Fiber- 4
________________________________________
Green protein shake:
1 cup milk
4 cups spinach
1/2 cup greek yogurt
1 banana
1 tbsp natural PB
Cal- 400 pro 27 fiber-7

Both taste great! It just depends on what your nutritional needs are

I buy vitacost whey iOS, 210 cals for 3 scoops, 50 gram protein, less than 1 g fat, 1 g carb made with sucrolose. I usually make shakes with 1 scoop for 66 cals. I order from vitacost.com.

If you go to a bulk food store (We have Bulk Barn here in Canada) you'll find "Whey Protein Isolate". That's all that's in it. Whey protein isolate. No sugar or flavors added. It's just Whey Protein Isolate.

This stuff is neutral in taste and dissolves in most liquids (with enough stirring or shaking). If you mix it with water, you get a finished product that tastes like slightly milky water. If you blend it up with a frozen banana and some water, you get a banana shake with a bunch of protein and some good carbs and vitamins for around the caloric cost of a single banana (70-80kc?)

Stuff in the tubs is usually adulterated with sugars and flavors. Look for bulk Whey Protein Isolate.

I was just about to post a similar question. Don't need to now! I've got some shopping to do too now. i'm thinking of swapping my bacon and eggs for a protein & fruit smoothie and see how that goes.

I use Jillian Michaels whey protein powder. It's sweetened with stevia and mixes up smooth and creamy. It only comes in vanilla and chocolate.
