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 :)
