  • Protein Shakes

    Hello World!

    Quick question about protein shakes (Primal Fuel shakes). I don't believe I have a lactose intolerance, but I am having problems shedding the last 10-15 pounds of chub on my body.

    I noticed in the past that milk products interfere with my weight loss, and am looking for a replacement other than water to make my protein shakes. If I'm honest with myself, protein shakes in the past have also caused me to gain weight in some form (and I'm not talking pure muscle), but this is my first time I'm trying the pricey Primal Fuel so I'm gonna give it a shot.

    I can always bite the bullet and go with water, but the shakes really do taste better with a cup of milk.

    I've got all other milk products out of my life, including sour cream's, cheeses, yogurts, etc. The only exception is butter, which in my opinion is more fat then milk.


    Thanks for the suggestions, and please feel free to chime in regarding the lactose intolerance, protein shakes, etc.


    Andrew

    Almond milk. Works great, I use it all the time. You can even make your own.

      I use water, but add an egg to make it creamier.

      Tried basic primal and almost everything else in pursuit of IBS control, mood stability, and weight loss.

        Almond milk? Interesting. Got any insight into the Primalism of drinking almonds?

        Now THAT'S an interesting idea. If we're going Arnold-style and eating it raw, the PF is some good tasting medicine and I'm not sure how that would mix...

          I don't know what 'Arnold-style' means! But I have a rice and pea protein powder that was horribly grainy to swallow, and thin because of the water. Then I read Mark's post about egg coffee where he says that egg is the perfect emulsifier, and *bingo* it worked for my shake! (I have a prescribed one for gut issues, so can't choose the yummy ones, sadly).

              Split the water with coconut milk. More of the former than the latter, since it can be quite thick.

              Almond milk's ok, used to drink tonnes, but it's carby. You could also try cream.

              I do the raw egg bit for my shakes, works real well.

                  I'm pretty sure it's okay. I always use the unsweetened which has very little carbs.

                    Better to eat them

                    Alot of commercial almond milks used veg oil in them - not good.

                      I just checked, Almond Breeze has sunflower lecithin. That's an emulsifier and the last ingredient, though, so I'm not going to sweat it.

                        So we're literally talking about tossing a raw egg into the protein shaker with some water and the powder?

                        Arnold Schwarzenegger was infamous for downing raw eggs before and after working out, or so I've heard.


                        Thanks for the suggestions, I'll absolutely give them a try!

                        If I'm honest I'm most interested in the egg substitute, but I'll try them all and get back to everyone with the results.
