What are the best protein shakes??

So I need to lose some weight because I need to have surgery and the doctor has me on a 1200 calorie diet (I hate it!!!!) and I am suppose to be drinking protein shakes he says I can buy any brand (slimfast,ect.). I looked at Target too many choices, so I did not buy any....So what is everyone's favorite??????

I usually prefer the Atkins shakes. They seem to have a good flavor, especially the chocolate ones.

you could make your own - protein powder, a lil yogurt, splash of milk, ice, fresh fruit and a blender - the possibilities are endless, really.

thing is, though, I have never found any shake to be particularly filling. shakes can easily pack 200+ calories - which is 1/6 of your daily calories. Decide if you *really* want to 'spend' that many of your precious calories on one drink. I used to drink slim fast ones occasionally but they were kind of pointless (for me) because I was always still hungry afterward and just ended up eating more food anyway.

I discovered Naturade Total Soy protein shakes about a year ago. They are awesome! Low in calories, fat etc. but high in protein and vit/min. I find them to be quite filling, however I do add 1/2 a banana to it. Here is just a brief overview:

150 calories per serving (I mix mine with 8oz water and ice but you can use soy milk or milk), 2g fat, 13g protein, 20 carbs and about 35% of your daily vitamins and no dairy, gluten, egg, etc. And soy naturally helps w/ weightloss and reduce cholesterol. I love this stuff and have had one everyday for breakfast for a year. If you want more info feel free to PM me.

I have the liquid protein shakes for breakfast. I use my coupons and usually get mostly boost and ensure high protein (15 grams of protein) Muscle milk and Atkins are good too. I give my slimfast coupons away. Their drinks taste too metaliic too me. It is all personal preference, everyone's taste buds are different. HTH

I use syntha-6. They have different flavors but I love the vanilla icecream. It's a little pricey (I get in onsale for 32.00 for a little under 3lbs at gnc). Slimfast had too many carbs and not enough protein for me. One scoop of my stuff has 200 cal, 6 fat grams, 13 carbs, and 26 grams of protein. (which is a perfect combination of carbs to protein) The slimfast had 40 carbs and only 10 grams of protein along with a lot of sugar. The syntha vannila tasts just like a milkshake.. most protein drinks make me gag . There are other flavors but I never tried them. You can make it with skim milk for an even better milkshake flavor but you may not want the extra calories with a 1200 calorie diet.

syntha 6 vanilla ice cream 2 91 lbs - Bing shopping

Slimfast makes a low carb shake (2 net carbs) that is delicious

I used to drink the creamy vanilla slimfast. Either in a can or the powder mixed with skim milk. Made a good breakfast while I was driving to work.

I love the Slimfast and the Special K protein shakes. Protein satisifes you hunger and the slimfast has 10g of protein, 6g of fat and 25g carbs. I usually don't find it to be satisfying enough and my nutritionist said I should have that WITH something else not as a meal replacement.

I like to eat hard boiled eggs, remove the yolk and replace with hummus. It is delicious and gives you enough protein to satisfy your hunger until lunch.

Losing weight is one thing, maintaining is another. Eating lean meats like chicken breast, turkey breast and FISH (the best) is totally the way to go. There is about 3g of fat in chicken breast vs 35g+ in 6oz of beef. I have converted to the 97% ground beef or turkey, it makes a BIG difference.

I Use SLIM FAST POWDER, Tastes MUCH better than The Shakes.

OH and KROGER brand Tastes REALLY GOOD, and Its Like 5.00 Or so So its Much more affordable. I prefer the CHOC. BUT i did Buy the Vanilla for Making Smoothies And such.

Oh and They have a High Protein version as well.
