Starting to get my feet under me

I am a week out and starting to get my feet under me.  The light went on and I figured out that if I had a Premier Protein (30 grams, 11 oz) for breakfast and a Matrix shake for lunch (23 grams, 8 oz) and another Premier for dinner, mix in 2 - 16 oz bottles of water - one in the morning and one in the afternoon - I would have 62 oz of fluids and 83 grams of protein. 

I kept reading the instructions of 64 oz of fluids and 60-80 grams protein, it sounded so daunting but If I say to myself that I have to drink 3 protein shakes and 2 bottles of water it sounds doable!!

Sounds like you have the next few weeks well in hand. It does help to break things into smaller groups, doesn't it? Congrats and continued good luck.

May I ask how they taste? I cannot find a shake that taste good. Have you tried their bars?

I am not at the bar stage yet so I can't say.  I do like the Premier shakes that I got at Costco.  They have to be very cold and I pour them in a glass to drink them.  The first couple sips have a little funny taste but if I keep sipping, it tastes like chocolate milk by the time I finish.  The Matrix shakes are sample packs that ordered and they taste ok to me mixed with water but when I add 2 Tbs of ff milk powder, they taste very good.

Order sample packs or go to GNC as they have a return policy.

When I make my protein shakes (Matrix Nectar Strawberry Cream) I put two scoops of protein mix so I am getting 46 grams per serving.  Anyone else do this?
