Since I dont have enough money to run out and try every protein shake out there I was wondering if its okay to drink protein shakes on the atkins diet or if anyone has any suggestions on protein shakes I should try?

If you are on Atkins, I have found that the Atkins shakes stall my weight loss. I found a protein shake at Costco called Premium Nutrition in chocolate or vanilla. They have 30 grams of protein which is good for those of us who don't eating all the meat on atkins but it only has 2 or 3 net carbs depending on which flavor you pick. They are also much cheaper than the atkins shakes. I believe you get a 24 pack that are the same size as the atkins one's if not bigger & it is $24 so $1 a shake.

I use it after my gym sessions, but you can use it anytime. It is "Hydro whey" by "optimal Nutrition" (look for ON) bought at local GNC store. GNC carries a lot of different type of protein powders (whey, soy and casein varieties) and depending on what you use it for, you can buy one of these and blend it with a banana and milk. Mine is chocolate flavored and tastes real good. Whey protein digests fast (about 2 hrs) and casein takes the longest time to digest.

The Slim Fast High Protein shakes have 15 gm of protein and 4 gm of carbs. The chocolate tastes good. They are good to carry around with you for a quick meal or snack if you need one. They run about $5 for a 4-pack.

I also like Elite Whey Protein in the powder mixes. A body-builder friend recommended it to me. I was looking for a powder to make low-carb pancakes with and didn't want to try a whole bunch of brands either. The Elite was his favorite of the whey protein powders. The Gourmet Vanilla and Chocolate are great. They have 25 gm of protein and 3-4 gm of carb per serving. I use the vanilla to make low-carb pancakes. They turn out like a crepe and are great.

I also use Isopure carb zero whey protein isolate in vanilla or banana cream. You can find it at GNC but it is more expensive ($51.99) for a 3lb tub. It is a top of the line product that is absorbed quickly & used by athletes who need higher protein for recovery/muscle building. I like it because it comes in powder form and lots of flavors to choose from, 50 grams of protein and best of all ZERO CARBS which is great for super low carvers like me. I mix mine with 30 calorie 0 net carb almond milk, but they are great with smoothies, mixed with plain Greek yogurt etc.

I really like the Premier nutrition one too. If you want a very low carb then look for a whey protein "isolate". Kaizen makes a brand they sell at Costco too.

I second Rita. I use the Kaizen from Costco. It tastes decent and is affordable.

I think the HMR shakes are good. You can get them on Amazon.com. Water,ice,shake and a little malt. Its a good shake. You can also add a little butterscoth pudding to the vanilla shakes, very good.

I use cytosport whey that I get from Costco. A 6lb. bag costing around $45.00 lasts quite a long time. 26g protein, 4g carbs, 140 calories and 3g sugar. I mix a scoop with almond milk, 30 calories. It totals 170 calories. Can be mixed with water, but I like the milk shake taste. Hubby drinks it too on occasion but spikes his with Hershey Syrup. :~)

I use vanilla whey protein shakes by Beachbody. It tastes amazing and I mix it with water, milk, smoothies, anything really. There are 18 grams of protein and 5 grams of carbs per serving. To me it is one of the best shakes I have tasted. I would highly recommend you trying this one.

I like the Mercola Miracle Whey Protiens. They are a little more pricy but they taste better and dont have all that added body building extra stuff.

If you type in Mercola in the food section you can see the stats on them. The Vanilla is my favorite... I can add cocoa powder in for chocolate myself or use it with fruit.

Powder Amazon has it for $33 shipped it lasts me about 2 months. I only use one scoop, most the time since I blend it with spinach, nuts/hemp hearts, and a bit of fruit.

I use Natural Grocers/Vitamin Cottage house brand of German instant whey protein powder in the bulk section. $9.33 per pound/16 servings and then just add my own flavorings. You can google how to make your own flavored protein powders. I make chocolate mocha most.

The biggest looser shakes are no good, they are to sweet and don't fill you up. The optislim ones are better and make you feel fuller but i don't know if they really work, well they haven't for me.

Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard try to get the Cake Batter flavor, it generally sells out pretty quickly though.

great question! i too have been searching for the right shake for me. i'm current using the prescriptfit mixture which has been my sole nutrition for 2 weeks straight. No hunger pains and lots of energy. it has a good amount if amino acids, fiber and protein and calcium casienate to keep me going and i've lost 11 pounds in two weeks. fulltime mom here. problem with it is that it has aspartame. i'd like to find a substitute to inhibit weight loss so i bought 100% natural casein byoptimal nutrition. not sure if it is going to produce weight loss. i think to build muscle. back on market though, will continue searching...

I've been using the Six Stars Elite Whey Protein Isolate from Walmart and it works great for me. Low carb, high protein and I really like the chocolate flavor. I blend one scoop with a Dannon Carb and Sugar Control strawberry yogurt (those I can only find at Meier's around here), some ice and some water and have a great post-workout/breakfast shake that doesn't stall me. Like others, I've found that Atkins shakes and basically all Atkins products have stalled me.
