MTdebster921 Lea Ann posted this some time ago. Most of us do that do the Slimfast Optima also add a RF string cheese to make the protein counts a little more equal-

I did look on the Slimfast site for the shake breakdowns:

Low Carb / Optima / High Protein/ LA Slimdown/Atkins Advantage
Cal 190 / 190/ 190/ 270/ 170
Fat 9 / 6 / 5/ 5/ 9
Sodium 260 / 200/ 220/ 380/ 165
Carbs 6 / 5 / 24/ 36/ 5
Sugars 1 / 18 / 13/ 32/ 1
Protein 20 / 10 / 15/ 20/ 18
I have used a protein powder called WELLEMENTS PRO RATED
800-255-2690 or wellements.com
I like both flavors (chocolate and vanilla - my picky Mom and sister do too). It's lower in sodium and is protein packed compared with others I have seen, but is not pre-packaged in single serving sizes as it comes in a 6 pound bag.

Nutrition information of the Wellements Pro Rated:
Cal 135
Fat 1 gram
Sodium 52 mg
Carbs 4 grams
Sugars 2 grams
Protein 27 grams
