In our Wal Mart it is by the pharmacy (go figure - hah). I usually get the vanilla and chocolate and since my son is doing P90x - I get him the strawberry. Another protein I use -which is the one I use on my oatmeal- is a soy based protein and I get that at my grocery store. It is Genisoy Soy Protein powder and has 25g of protein for only110 calories - I usually only use one scoop though instead of the three in my oatmeal. I use my vanilla or chocolate protein as a recovery drink after I have lifted - I just mix it in water and drink it down, depending on what I'm having for dinner to stay within my calorie limits. Good luck!
I buy my Whey Protein from Wal Mart - it is about $17.00-$20.00 for the kinds I like. I know in the beginning you cut back on carbs which I did when I was in Burn Phase (I'm now in Lean Phase) but one of my staples for breakfast is Kashi Go Lean and I usually had oatmeal one or two days per week with a scoop of protein powder and 3-4 walnuts broken up. That would carry me for a long time and I would have to remind myself to eat a snack in the mid-morning because I'm just not hungry after eating that breakfast. Another staple that I've heard about through Chalene is FAGE 0% - that is great stuff. It is a yogurt really high in protein. I will have that for breakfast sometimes with some fruit and maybe a little Stevia or Agave. Then there's always cottage cheese, fruit and a couple of walnuts. Yum.
The Fat Burning Food Guide lists all kinds of wonderful recipes. However, most of the breakfast in the burn phase have the basic staple of egg whites. I do not like eggs. I have not liked eggs since I was a child and the only way I would ever eat them was covered in cheese and made by my Mom. I have spent $181 in groceries to fill my refrigerator with fresh foods and give myself enough to start testing recipes to determine if I can stand to eat them. The problem is that while I can make myself suffer through a plain scrambled egg now with a touch of sea salt.....I cannot do egg whites. I just made the most wonderful looking omelet, and I could not get past the second bite....it literally made me sick. I added salsa, it did not help at all. So I wasted a Mozzarella, Spinach, and Tomato Omelet and now my entire kitchen is making me sick from the smell of those egg whites.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I could try for breakfast in my burn phase? I need help because I want to be good, but I will starve myself and go broke trying to eat this stuff. And where on Earth do I buy whey protein powder besides teambeachbody.com?
