I use It Works Global's Ultimate Profit Protein powder as a protein source. They have it in Creamy Vanilla and Rich chocolate and both are delicious.
It comes in 1.55lb package (30 x1 scoop per servings). I buy @ 69.00 per package.
The protein in 1 scoop is 14g, with 5g carbs, 1 g sugar and 3g fiber so net carbs is really 2.
I use 1.5 scoops per serving which works out at 21g protein to be more protein that most IP products and even the net carb count is better @ 3g with only 1.5 g of sugar.
Both the creamy vanilla and the rich chocolate taste great compared to most other protein powders on the market for similar prices.
The package lasts me about 2 weeks if I use it only and longer if I buy some IP packages for variety, to mix it up a bit each week.
This worked out less expensive for me as I wasn't spending 84/week on 21 IP packages as my cost was 69/week so I save $15/ week or more on the protein which goes to vegetables and water cost.
I compared week for week when I started the alternate source keeping everything the same to determine if there were differences in loss using the 2 different sources and I actually lost a little more when looking at when I use the Ultimate Profit powder compared to the previous weeks.
I wont provide any more details on where to get it here but if interested in trying send PM and I will follow-up.
