Go to this thread on the PCOS general team discussion forum:
PCOS and low carb, how many calories are adequate

I began that thread and got some wonderful info from several team members who are on the insulin resistance diet.

My library has the book and it is on hold for me to pick up after MLK holiday. Can't wait to read it.

My husband and I are both vegetarians and we use "Naturade" protein booster. They have Whey and Soy (I prefer the soy myself). Its a little difficult to find, we usually order off line. But after a long long search / trial and error period of different protein powders I found this one to be the best tasting with the best nutritional properties. I drink it with soy milk. Also, as a general note about protein powders, I would seriously advise getting a hand mixer. Its a lot easier to drink when it doesn't have all those little chunks in it (b/c its very difficult to stir up with a spoon) and the hand mixer is a lot easier (and less messy) than pulling out the blender every morning. Good luck!

I use whey powder, its high in protein, and relatively low in calories and fat. (1 serving of the one I made yesterday was 120 cals, 4 carbs, 2 fat and 22 protein)

Check walmart, they have a nice selection and even sell individual packets so you can try different flavors.

I have one after a workout.

I've ordered protein powders from www.unjury.com. They make a flavor-less powder that you can add to anything you want.

As far as I know, all protein powders have calories, carbs, and fat. Some have significantly less than others, so you need to find one that suits your needs.

I use Aria Protein Powder. It's made especially for women and is comparatively low in calories and fat compared to other protein powders which are usually designed to help athletes build up muscle.

Aria comes in vanilla and chocolate, though I have never seen the chocolate in stores. Because of the flavor, you wouldn't want to mix it with chicken broth, but it goes well in milk or water. I actually use it in a fruit and yogurt smoothie for breakfast every day.

Do any of you use Protein powder supplements?

I can follow the Insulin Resistance Diet plan but need about 50 more grams of protein each day. But for what I'd "like" to eat, that adds too much fat. Sometimes I can add a boneless, skinless chicken breast but sometimes I am just sick of chicken. Just thought a protein powder might help. . .maybe add it to some chicken broth? Can you do that? Can you tell I know NOTHING about protein powder?

Do protein powders have carbs or fat? Is there one that's better than another?
