Hi Elizabeth. Zero Carb powder is better than the Zero Impact

Can you please clarify your point b/c I'm not familiar with products called ZERO CARB and ZERO IMPACT or are they not names of products? So what's your take, then, on the Muscle Milk Protein Plus product? Thanks.

here is the info on Zero Carb protein powder
THE POWER OF ZEROTEIN™
# 100% Whey Protein Isolate
# Microfraction Selection Technology
# Great Tasting Flavor

Zero Carbohydrates
Zero Sugar
Zero Fat
Zero Aspartame or Acesulfame K
Zero Corn Syrup Solids or Hydrogenated Oils
Zero Fat-Promoting High Glycemic Index Maltodextrins
Zero Caseinate, Ion Exchange or Other Old-School Proteins
Zero Estrogen Promoting Inferior Soy Protein
Zero Lactose - Generally Safe for Most People with Milk Allergies

ZERO CARB® PROTEIN: Because protein is the single most important performance, appearance and muscle enhancing substance, a significant amount of research went into isolating a protein superior to those already available. Pushing the envelope of technology, VPX engineered a protein derived from Cross-Flow Quadrafiltration (CFQ) called ZEROTEIN - the highest biological value, fat and carbohydrate-free, pure whey protein isolate. This unique manufacturing process (CFQ) yields increased protein microfractions and Di, Tri and Quadrapeptide Isolates.

Regarding the protein powder... Today I found an individual packet of Jay Robb Vanilla Whey Protein in my pantry that I think I bought when I was going to do Jorge Cruise's Belly Fat Diet. I never tried it. It says they try to use rBGH-free whey (it's made from cows not treated with a synthetic growth hormone). It's sweetened with Stevia. Here is the run down:

Serving Size: 30g (one packet)
Calories: 110
Total Fat: 0g
Sat Fat: 0g
Trans Fat: 0g
Cholesterol: 0mg
Sodium: 150mg
Potassium: 390mg
Total Carbs: 1g
Fiber: 0g
Sugars: 0g
Protein: 25g
Vit A: 0 IU
Vit C: 0 mg
Calcium: 30mg
Iron: 0mg

Ingredients: Cold-processed cross-flow microfiltered whey protein isolate, natural flavor, xanthan gum, lecithin, stevia.

Looks good to me. What do you guys think?

Elizabeth:Zero Carb powder is better than the Zero Impact
Does this mean it's better TASTING or better NUTRITIONALLY?

Also, we are clearly referring to 2 very different products in the Muscle Milk line. The powdered protein I got at Costco is called Muscle Milk PROTEIN + and it's available in chocolate or vanilla. The nutritional analysis on the PROTEIN PLUS looks completely different than the Muscle Milk label you posted. Here is the info for the product I bought which is MM's PROTEIN PLUS

I am truly sorry about your diagnosis. I can't say that I know what you are going through, but my Husband has colon cancer. He just had his 2nd operation and will be starting his 2nd Chemo soon.

I understand whey protein is really good to combat cancer.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

You will do great, Pita! If nothing else, I have ALWAYS lost inches even on no pounds lost weeks. You'll be great!

Should see the loss next week then, hopefully.
It may take a little bit to catch up but, you will see it in your clothing. You are doing so well!! Averaging over 3.54 pounds per week is GREAT!

Are there lower carbs per pickles out there?

Sorry if this has been discussed already, but "miracle noodles" can we have those? and since they are zero carb and zero calories etc. can I eat them with veggies in a stir fry? Oh please say yes I am dying to order some.
Pickles!! Gotta love 'em! I didn't know about the splenda based sweet pickles so I will have to look for those! I use a brand I get from Sprouts or Whole Foods. They are called Bubbies. My coach recommended them. They are sugar free. Here is the nutritional link for several of there brands as found on Livestrong.com. http://www.livestrong.com/thedailypl...ubbie&x=37&y=7

I haven't done the Miracle noodles yet but want to. I know Jordanna and a few others have ordered them. I am told that we can consider them part of our veggies.

I LOVE THIS PROTEIN POWDER!! It is my absolute favorite next to Pure Protein. The Jay Robb lines (whey or eggwhite) are both very clean, dissolve well, taste great, low carb, stevia sweetened, hormone free, fat free and a good serving of protein! AND, you can get them in the travel pack singles which is convenient.

I have also been looking for great vegan, gluten free, dairy free, soy free protein powders for my sister. This website offers some great things AND you can formulate your own, buy in small quantities at reasonable prices.

http://www.trueprotein.com/Default.aspx

http://www.trueprotein.com/Product_D...id=22&pid=6816
the above seemed great and was very inexpensive per pound. I set this up with a peach flavor, stevia sweetner, did the vitamin/mineral/electrolyte add on and asked for it to ship in a food grade bag as I have a container to use. The cost was under $5.00 per pound!! Here is the nutritional info!

Serving Size 30 g ( 1 scoop)
Servings Per Pound: 15
Total Calories 110 Total Fat .3g Sodium 25mg Carbohydrates .03g Dietary Fiber 0g Sugar 0g Protein 25.6g

I would read it to mean better nutritionally. Also, I still think the zero carb sounds better than the muscle milk protein plus. The MM's PROTEIN PLUS Has 2 g of fat which is similar to an IP pudding or ready made drink but there are sugars listed and carbs of 3. Again, definately a good fit as a substitute for an IP packet!! But, if you are adding an EXTRA that you only wanted to boost protein for I would skip this as an option.

Ok... I've combed the 2 recipe threads and can't find 2 recipes mentioned in the weekly threads. One is for the 'turnip fries" and the other is for "zuccini chips". Anyone know?

Hey pittakitten, I cheated to on the weekend. I was having a weekend in a hotel with my husband and did so well until I ate "just 1" onion ring and then inhaled the whole plate shortly thereafter. Then the next day, I went nuts and ate banana bread with chocolate chips, and bread. Oh I was so mad at myself. I
ended up gaining the whole 3 pounds that I had lost the week before. So I started up again the next day with IP. Now I'm scared to do the same thing this weekend b/c I have a girls weekend with all my girlfriends which is an annual trek to let our hair down, eat and drink until we get really silly. I've just packed a huge amount of veggies for the weekend, but I know that once I see all the wine, beer and nachos, i'M thinking...darn, here goes another 3 pounds.

I might try my Jay Robb tomorrow. It sounds good! I like that it dissolves easily.
Peach? That sounds yummy I will have to check out that website tomorrow. Thanks for the info!
