hey there...i use gnc vanilla whey powder, mixed with greek yogurt, mixed berries and soy milk, i drink it after i work out, and it keeps me full for a few pretty much doubles as my lunch....the other thing is, if it's too much for one sitting, you can always split it, put 1/2 in a sigg mug, eat later....good luck!!

Put more "lean" protein on your plate to your regular meals- your in a healthy weight range and whey protein can act like extra calories when so close to goal weight..
Actual protein as less additives and carbs than protein powders..

I didnt say I used it as a meal replacement.

I use it as a snack. A snack to FILL ME UP after a workout and as a way to get more protein.

Whey protein is a suppliment out over your "regular" food it was never designed to be a meal replacement!

It can be very heavy in itself I have problems with my stomach digesting it with milk.. Putting it with other stuff in my eyes is overkill.. I still have to find a regular meal- it is not a complete meal, I body build and if I don't have my normal meals I get hungry too..

For awhile I was mixing aria protein powder for women with a cup of skm milk or soy milk. It worked well.. but I found myself hungry within an hour or so.

But. For the same amount of calories I replace the milk with non fat vanilla yogurt.

I put the yogurt in a bowl, pour the powder in and mix it up. For some reason I actually like the gritty texture of protein powder so i don't mix it up too well. I know most people don't like that gritty taste but it mixes in VERY easily!

Give it a try.

What do you mix your protein powder with? And what type of powder do you use?
