I am in Canada as well. I go to the US & pick up the premier protein at the grocery store (you can get it at costco or sams club in bulk for a better price) They have Banana Cream, Strawberries & cream or Caramel. They are all yummy!!

Costo, Sam's Club, Walmart, Target. They all have different flavors. I think the two new flavors are only available at Sam's Club.

Unflavored protein powder has a taste. Certain things cover it and certain things don't. You'll have to experiment. The only truly tasteless one is GenePro and it seems to be the case that it's made with mostly collagen protein which isn't very well absorbed.

When I used unflavored protein powder, it didn't really have a "taste" but could seem (to me) kinda chalky. I always mixed it in items that were already flavored.

Have him try The Vitamin Shoppe for other flavors of Premier Protein (I'm assuming this is the RTD). It looks like they carry Carmel, Strawberry and Bananas and Creme flavors.

I live in Canada and the only Premier Protein flavours I have found are Chocolate and Vanilla. I see people talking about other flavours here. Fortunately my SO is an OTR trucker and travels across the US weekly. Where can he pick up other flavours for me? Any suggestions on any products to try are greatly appreciated! Does Unflavored protein powder have any taste?

WARNING TO SELF AND TO ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN!!! AVOID 'BAD' CARBS AT ALL COSTS!!! THEY ARE ADDICTING!! THEY WILL SLOW DOWN YOUR WEIGHT LOSS DURING THE LOSING STAGE (and you won't even notice)!! THEY WILL MAKE THE SCALE GO UP AFTER THE HONEYMOON PERIOD IS OVER.

Success in Maintenance starts with GOOD CHOICES during the Honeymoon Period.

I feel I need to repeat this: I am a FIRM believer in Good Whey Protein Drinks!!!!! It is sooooo much harder to do Maintenance without them!

Good Morning LW's!!!!! YES...the weekend is almost over! Do you have any plans this weekend? If you do make sure you plan ahead for what you are going to eat. Planning makes our struggles so much easier BUT you have to stick to the plan.....!!!

My Menus are Boring Boring Boring for you all to read. BUT they work Perfect for me!!! The less time I think about food the better my scales look. Fortunately my Hubby is very picky and there's only a few things that he likes for dinner so we do a lot of repeats during the week.

Protein: Matrix Mint Cookie 35g

Breakfast:

Lunch: Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Cheese

Snack: 5 Saltines and Laughing Cow Cheese Spread

Protein: Matrix Mint Cookie 35g

Dinner ??

God is walking with me every step of the way. Because of HIM this is possible!!
