Hi I use On All Natural Protien powder (Vanilla Ice cream) and I love it.
it taste good in fruit smoothies,yogurts etc...

I've actually never used any other brand of protien powder.

I too went for the natural product as it follows the clean eating line of thought.

I was just wondering what made those of you on Optimum Nutrition products select the 100% Gold Standard Whey instead of the All-natural Whey product by ON. Did it just taste better than the natural? I was actually thinking of trying the natural, since it's kind of hard to find a protein powder that doesn't have artificial flavors (like the Gold Standard Whey does.)

I've been using EAS %100 Whey Protien powder. I find a shake as a mid morning snack really fills me up. Also, i get the added calcium when I mix it with milk.

For protein bars I get the Pure Protein brand chocolate peanut. They are 190 calories each with 20 grams of protein and 2 grams of sugar. You can get a box of them at Sam's. I also use the ON Vanilla Ice Cream Flavor powder.

Trying to get back on track after the worst year that I can remember.

I have never heard of the Optimum Nutrition. I was browse the website, dpsnutrtion and I saw that they also have protein bars. Has anyone tried these and if so how are they. Also with the Optimum Nutrtion 100% Whey Gold Standard powder can you tell me how it well it works in a shaker. I have always bought myoplex and when I put it in the shaker it just doesn't seem to mix very well so now I have opted for the premix one in a small containers. I am looking for protein bars that have low calories, high protein, little sugar and low carbs. Any help would be great.

how much are you putting in your oatmeal/yougurt ? I find 1 scoop is way too much to mix

I use one or two shakes a day since trying to eat more protein. I was really low before and I am not a huge meat eater. Whole food are always best but the shakes really help me boost my protein without adding too many calories or fat.

I find that if I eat more protein, my blood sugar stays much more level and I am less likely to binge or get into sugar cravings... In my opinion, that is the key benefit to the protein (other than helping to build muscle after a strength workout).

Well I think its all about getting in enough protein so whether your getting it from a protein shake or eggs, chicken breast…the point is to get it in…I find the protein powder as a convenient way to get it into my meals.

Do you all find that by having the protein powder that it is helping you to lose weight? How much weight have you lost since you started using the powder, compared to when you werent using it? I am considering it, and I would like to know your thoughts and successes if any, in using this stuff. Let me know, Im curious!

Thanks :)

Make sure you dont get too much protein though. If your body gets too much protein it stores inot fat. 1 protein shake a day should do the trick.

It looks like a good mix of protein and carbs. The one I use is 18 grams of protein, so when I need more protein, like after a workout, or if I'm falling short on protein I just do a scoop and a half with 1% or skim milk.
That is perfect that you chose one sweetened with Stevia, and it also has Grape seed extract...all good stuff. Good choice!

I also go to dps nutrition rather than GNC. Actually I know a former employee of GNC and HE goes to that site to order his stuff. It is considerably cheaper than buying at GNC.

I use protein powder daily - both for my post workout meal & it's the best way for me to get enough grams of protein daily(1 gram / lb of body weight)

I Use Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard - Vanilla Ice Cream flavor (tasty) - 24g protein, 120 calories. I buy the 5lb, about $40 - www.dpsnutrition.com

This is good. Mix it with water (really cold water) to keep the calories low. The carbs are good too. Thats the trick, getting a good supply of protein while keeping the carbs, fat and cals down.

I like it. I use Optimum Nutrition. It beats eating a killer amount of meat with all the fat and calories. Mine's is 24g of protein per scoop which is 110 calories. My brother also uses muscle milk which is high in calories but most def. better tasting.

"The beauty of the Gospel message is not that we shall not suffer, but rather that regardless of the level and intensity of our suffering, God is always there by our side, and will always give us the strength to stand and not fail. In fact I would go as far as to say that the most effective witness to the lost, is the life of a suffering Christian, that overflows with joy, peace and love, rather than bitterness and self-pity.
