Protein Shakes!

What's the best flavor? I want to just get them all at once before I place the order.

In my opinion, You can't go wrong with Vanilla! We always recommend our patients to select all three flavors. They all taste great and variety is key on such a limited diet.

Since the shake is a meal replacement, does it affect your fruit consumption for the day? In other words, can you add strawberries to your shake when blending?

The shakes can be used many ways in order to obtain the protein and 500-550 calories per day required. 1. When on the road, they can be used as a full meal replacement, substituting fast foods, etc. 2. Used to obtain the calories required per day. (more detail below) Many people merely measure the food, and do not count the calories. BAD BAD BAD! When we calculate peoples daily caloric consumption with them, most of the time they fall between 275-350 calories, way to low than minimum. The shakes can be used at that point to increase the needed calories for the day, and also provide mega protein which is always good! 500 calories is actually quite a decent amount of food once you take off all the sauces and yummy tasting stuff. There is enough room for 3 proteins per day, and veggies and fruits. So, to answer your question, you use it as a meal when your daily food consumption doesn't reach the minimum required. So, if your still below, you can eat those fruits still. Just weight each food and count the calories, That is all we are worried about.

Thank you! That was a great explanation. I am weighing and keeping track of all food in MyNetDiary Pro. It's been a great app to use for this. It charts the weight, and graphs, pretty cool. I am happy to hear the calories are the determining factor so if I have 4 oz of grilled chicken, as long as I'm at 500/550, it's not a problem. At this point, I've used two shakes in the first week. And the vanilla is very good.
