Shake Comparrison:

Not all protein Shakes are created equal!
In my search for a substitue for the Medifast Shakes
I have tried these four brands.

Jullians has a bitter taste and heavy deposits left in my glass.
It was not filling and I was hungry in about an hour.


This protein shake was not better.
It has a very bland taste and not filling at all.
Gritty in texture.


Slimfast did taste the best, but it also did not keep me full.
Plus there is a very sweet taste to this shake.

This one is the closest that I tried.
It is not as sweet as the Medi-fast shakes.
But the texture and filling-ness of it was comparable.
Plus there are a lot of vitamins and minerals in this brand.
AND:
the OTHER INGREDIENTS list
was very minimal compared to the other shakes.
AND I can pronounce every one of these other ingredients.
So I will be ordering another container of this last shake and
be using it when I no longer need the medifast.
It is not as spendy, and fills me up, and even tastes pretty good.

I will be doing a comparison on the crunch bars next.

I guess I am up a creek because I cannot stand the taste of any of these.

Congratulations on your great accomplishment.

Jody, I use SpiruTein. They have 1 serving packets, if you can find it at your store. I haven't tried the ones you listed, so thanks for sharing! Interesting post!

Our journey has begun!… secretly though

If I’ve left you this message, you’re a follower of my original blog ~OR~ just someone I’ve happened upon while sending out these invites and that I would LOVE for to come along for the ride! Though I won’t be revealing who I am just yet – until we’re TO and THROUGH the first trimester! Just getting the word out about our new site – further explanation of all the secrecy and what we’re about on my first post. I’d love for you to stop by.

Exciting things going on around here!

I use a brand called "Pure Protein". They carry it at Fred Meyer's and I really like it! Of course, so far, I've only used the vanilla, but it's smooth and creamy.

Here's one of the recipes I use:

1 c. nonfat milk

1 scoop protein powder

8 whole frozen strawberries

Blend together and enjoy!
