Try probodysolutions.com. The Lean Protien is great and so is the Sport.

I was trying to answer the question someone else asked was how Vi can compete in the market, and I was just elaborating on how it has its place because it's not just protein, but has more overall nutritional benefits too.

But since it seems I'm not welcome 'round here, and because my knowledge about strict protein powder isn't up to your guys' level....well, discretion is the better part of valor, as they say....so bowing out of the thread.

Good luck with reaching your goals, however you may reach them everyone! :)

It really shouldn't be that hard, perhaps proteins too high or calories are too low?

I aim for 1g per lb of body weight which puts me at 120 g and my calories are set at 1300 for weight loss. The real issue is that I don't eat a lot of meat and absolutely no fish. I love nuts but they are pretty calorie dense as well.

Trutein is my favorite. I've tried several Protein powders that I did not enjoy the taste of...Trutein was a breath of fresh air in taste...havn't looked back since. I use Banana Cream and Cinnabun but I've tried a sample of each flavor and Vanilla is pretty good too...just worried I would get bored with it.

You should aim at 1g of protein per pound of LBM (Lean Body Mass) as opposed to Body Weight....that should give you a bit more breathing room. Find out your BF% and you can figure out your LBM...then go from there.

It's my fault entirely. I made the mistake of assuming you were trying to sell something applicable to the OP's goals.

Thanks for your contribution! My original intent was to find a protein powder that was low cal/high protein that tasted good in water, but the points you brought up are definitely a secondary concern. People get up in arms about health and wellness because it is a truly personal thing but I don't think that needs to happen on a board like this.

I use Isopure Dutch Chocolate. Isopure is the way to go, IMO.

Thanks @Tilran. I've read various arguments about protein intake for women and men and goals etc. and most of it contradicts one another! Its always difficult to sort out what info is correct, so its nice to get some insight!

ON Casein is the only one I really like in water. Muscle milk is also pretty good, but that's more of a meal replacement than a powder.

The chocolate is very good.

I was rather leaning toward ON's whey because its supposed to be more beneficial for women looking to build muscle but Im might just have to try casein!


either one are a complete protein and will be useful to build muscle. Studies suggest that casein is anti-catabolic and whey is anabolic...but it really doesn't matter, they're just protein.


LOL @ casein is ani-catabolic and whey is anabolic. Kind of means the same thing just in different wordings. This is what the supplement companies do so well haha.. Obviously if you are not catabolic then you are anabolic... ANNNDDD any time you eat any thing you become what...... anabolic. So all food can be considered anti catabolic, but buy this protein now and become anti catabolic /anabolic today! Pretty silly when you think about it.laugh Boooiiiieee those supplement companies are soooo smart..*sarcasm*smokin

If it's all new, you really don't need to be going straight for levels people recommend you, and as with macros/water/weight loss/gain/exercise everything can be worked towards rather than trying to hit everything on day one.
You can expect results in a range of 1.6g to 2g of protein per KG body weight.

If you don't like lean meats or fish then low fat dairy, egg whites or protein supplements can be used to hit high protein while ducking under calorie goals,

HOWEVER your calorie goal is at BMR, and you'd be losing weight even if you were sedentary and not working out. You really should be eating more, which would also make hitting your protein goal easier without supplements.

Hiya, I'm looking for a protein powder that I can mix in water rather than adding the extra calories and sugar from almond milk, like I'm used to. I love the plant protein powder I have been using, but I want to be able to drink more and it just doesn't fit into my calorie goals.
Long story short, what protein powders have you tried that taste good in water?


I use Body Fortress whey strawberry or the chocolate flavor and mix with water in a shaker up. It mixes well and is quite tasty!

I drink Body Fortress Optimum Whey Protein Powder. The chocolate is fantastic with water, the vanilla is okay, better with a milk choice though. The chocolate peanut butter is good also. Good luck :)

I freeze unsweetened almond milk into ice cubes and blend my protein with that and a little water. Works great for a nice consistency. More water for thinner, less for thicker.

I use MuscleTech Elite Plus protein - 140 calories/30g protein per scoop.


Genius! I was putting in the almond milk, then ice cubes and it was too watery and bleh..


Thank you, Sir!

I agree that you only need 1g per lb or LBM (not total body weight). You would probably be fine at a 100g target. More is fine, but imo not necessary.

I can drink Isopure Creamy Vanilla with just water. Get a good blender bottle and you will be set!

1g/lb protein is more of a guide line than a need.

Primal Fuel. It was designed to taste decent mixed with water, though I usually use milk. Chocolate coconut and vanilla creme flavors (I don't normally care for coconut, but I like these). Lower-carb, sweetened with stevia and a bit of cane sugar. Pricier than WallyWorld or GNC products, but not as expensive as Shakeology or Visalus.


Overpriced and poisonous according to Sisson himself


So the guy who formulated it says it's poisonous, huh? Could you point me to a link where Sisson says that? Not where someone claims he says it, or interprets his words to say that's what he meant...

There was a bunch of nit-picking debate about primal-ness when he came out with the stuff, but I'm not into the whole primal caveman thing. No argument from me that it's high-priced. Buying cheaper stuff that tastes so bad my kids won't drink it, and I have it sitting on the shelf, is expensive too.

Taken in the context of my statement I would not expect people to think it is an absolute requirement. Maybe I should be clearer in the future to make sure people do not misunderstand and take specific words in isolation rather than in the context of my statement in the light of the conversation.

OP: it is a general recommendation that 1g per lb LBM is a perfectly adequate amount of protein.

Better?

I drink Isopure Low Carb protein Dutch Chocolate. It's not so sickly sweet as the other shakes I've tried. I use my husband's Strawberry one to make protein pudding bigsmile
