For a select few patients, whey (or milk) based protein powder just doesn’t agree with them. Here’s the protein powder for you:
Nature’s Best by Isopure is made from pea and brown rice powder rather than whey. Although it doesn’t have as many flavors as other brands (it comes in chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry), they also make a flavorless powder that can be added to anything! Stay tuned for another post on how to jazz up those shakes.
VERY IMPORTANT: Make sure you get this exact powder, not a different powder made by the same company. Isopure also sells muscle-building type protein powders, which are loaded with carbohydrates and will NOT allow you to lose weight.
ALSO VERY IMPORTANT: This powder has 20 grams of protein per scoop, as compared to the whey-based powders which have 30 grams of protein per scoop. This means you should be getting 4 shakes per day rather than the 3 shakes we normally recommend. Don’t fret- we will cover this in your appointment!
