THANKS EVERYONE FOR YOUR COMMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS. THEY ARE REALLY HELPFUL IN MAKING MY DECISION.

I like Whey. I don't do soy due to having breast cancer.

I found a protein called: Garden of Life Raw Protein -at the health food store- it's organic and solely plant based -- organic, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, lactose free, no fillers, no isolates, no synthetic nutrients, no art. sweetners or flavors, no preservatives. 17 grames of protein in a scoop, which I add to a smoothie. Texture is sort of chalky, but, it is an acquired taste, not bad. Had to experiment with what to add to smoothie to make it taste better... real vanilla helps considerably, as does having it really cold and using frozen fruit as a base for the smoothie.

I can't have dairy, so no whey and try not to have too much soy for a variety of reasons.

after much research whey has been proven to be better than the soy.

I think whey has been shown to have a slight advantage for weight loss. I've gotten good results with whey.

I only use whey protein but I don't eat any soy at all if I can avoid it because of my thyroid disorder, except for properly fermented soy sauce.

Whey. But you want to make sure that it comes from green fed cows and is cold pressed. I believe the Garden of Life is like that. I liked Biochem but I could never confirm with anyone.

Egg protein. Natural Grocers has it.

I prefer whey. Buy good quality or your stomach can get upset. I like Biochem brand myself.

I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO DO BREAKFAST BUT IT DOESN'T HAPPEN UNTIL 10-11 AM. SO I WANT TO HAVE A PROTEIN DRINK BEFORE GOING TO THE Y AT 7AM. WHICH PROTEIN MIX IS BETTER?
1. WHEY
2. SOY
