    There are so many options out there, powders and premixed, it is hard to decide and know which is best. Personally I like the Premier Protein from Costco, I think they taste good but is it better than powder? Any thoughts about preferred powder or or shakes?

    Hydro Whey is the best tasting with less fillers, although its quite pricey.

    I like GNC whey berry or strawberry. The taste is a make or break for me. You can mix with milk, water, juice but also coffee with vanilla or chocolate flavors.

    I use Dynamatize Iso-100. It's lactose free, which is good. It's a good post workout, but I get most of my protein from food as opposed to supplements...

    No protein powder for me - just eggs, fish, chicken, meats, cheeses, etc.

    Powder. With at least 30 grams of protein and 100 or less calories. It's the only affordable option if you drink it twice a day which is what I need to get the recommended daily. And get one that is a mix of slow and fast absorbing protein. I drink it for breakfast along with some fruit and then after working out in the late afternoon. My sup store says I should also add some carbs but I'm trying to lose 10 lbs so I haven't done that. Does anyone add carbs intentionally?

    Optimal Nutrition's Gold Standard is the best that I have found. I mix it with creatine and a multi-vitamin powder.
