I avoid this problem for myself in two ways: I add yogurt to the smoothie and banana. (though I do cut the amount of protein powder in half when I do this for both calories and protein overloading reasons) and it keeps me full for a good 2-3 hours.

I used to use the 100% whey sweetened with stevia and still do if I just need to up my protein intake but if I want it as a meal I found a double bonded goat whey protein in chocolate and vanilla. I use chocolate and mix it with coffee it is fantastic. It is thicker and very filling. Mix it up a few minutes before drinking it and the protein expands and is like a shake it is yummy, too. Completely naturally sweetened and organic to boot. I order mine through Tropical Traditions online and they have great lip balms, too. If you join their mailing list they send out specials for free shipping periodically and I stock up when they do.
The chains of habit are generally too small to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.

My current body it the most precious gift I have ever been given.
i used to never eat breakfast on workdays before i joined . i bought muscle milk's 100%whey protein powder in the chocolate flavor at costco. 27g of protein-and it's chocolate! also comes in vanilla, though. you could add it to cereal, ice cream, yogurt, etc. but i just shake it up in a bottle and drink on my commute. it keeps me full 'til lunch!
We are not big breakfast eaters at our house so I have started making fruit smoothies in the mornings. I cut up all the ingredients and put in the blender in the frig over night. Then in morning all I have do to is add the ice and the liquid and blend away. The issue? I find that after an hour or so, I am starving! Anyone have any experience with protein powder or maybe even adding some slimfast or ovaltine or something?
