Protein Powders

Does anyone use protein powders ??

I have started working out, :o yes I am surprised too, :P I am also trying to lose weight so my dietitian suggested I try to increase my protein intake. She suggested I look into protein powders.

I need gluten,soy,oat , sorbitol free ( No shared facility) . I rotate legumes so I also need to say away from them . I would prefer one that did not have artificial sweeteners ,real sugars are fine.

Any suggestions???

I did do a quick search, most of the threads were over a year old or no one answered or the people responding were stressing the benefit of eating real food instead of using protein supplements.

I eat real food but I just do not seem to be able to get my protein intake up to where my RD wants it .

I use Nutribiotic vegan brown rice protein powder. Very low sugar, and is gluten/soy/milk/yeast/egg-free. It also has a decently low amount of calories - 55 calories for 12g protein. It doesn't taste very good, but I use it as an extra supplement rather than a meal replacement, so I don't mind a quick drink of it before I eat my yummy breakfast. :)

Thank you :)

I am not looking for a meal replacement but a supplement so it sounds just right .Do you order it on-line or can you find it in stores??

Thanks again :)

    • Hello! My daughter was diagnosed with Celiac non-biopsied about 6 months ago. When I recently went for my physical, I mentioned to my PCP that my daughter was Celiac, she said that I need to be tested. I took a blood test that day and here are the results: Anti-Gliadin IgA                     Gliadin Ab(s) IgA - 18.23U/ml    -      Standard Range: 0-15 U/ml   - Result: Positive My PCP told me to start a gluten-free diet right away and she will re-test again in 6 months. I was expecting a full panel, like my daughter had, not sure if it is necessary or not. We elected not to put my daughter through a biopsy, as she was just recovering from a ruptured appendix and her GI Dr. agreed that he numbers were so high that she was fairly certain w/o biopsy that she was Celiac. My DD feels so much better. Do you think this test is enough for me to start the gluten-free diet? I actually have cut way back on gluten, as I somewhat eat what my daughter eats. So my test may have reflected that decrease. Should I ask for more testing? Is this test sufficient? Thanks for any assistance!!  
    • That's hard.  You can try the "I come to be social,"  "I have serious food allergies", "I only come to drink"...... whatever might feel comfortable.  I know celiac is not an allergy but more people understand if you say celiac is like a severe food allergy.  Do go, have fun.  Don't let food stop you.  Yes, people give looks but honestly they get to know that this is just you and hopefully they will come to accept it. 
    • I thought it had all died down too so I started buying them for my celiac daughter. 4 boxes were fine. The 5th made her very sick for over a week.  Beware!
    • Agree!  That is a difficult spot to be in.  I have a friend who insists she can cook for me.  I have tried the "I come for the company, not the food", "I am celiac.." etc.  I finally gave up and said "I love you but no!".  It's very hard.  Very hard!  But stay strong.
    • I never ate at the fair but always "rewarded" myself with a nice glass of wine at the wine and beer patio!   The corn on the cob might be ok but I have to agree with the poster who mentioned that stuff at the fair probably isn't terribly clean.  Stuff your purse with snacks and enjoy.  My partner would feel bad about eating in front of my and I would just - I don't feel bad so that's your problem, not mine! lol
