what about the slim fast shakes? I know they have alot of sugar, but they are delicious, the vanilla, that is. As long as I stay within calorie range, it should be ok right? They have alot of vitamins and minerals.

I make my own balsamic vinagrette - equal parts olive oil, balsamic vinegar and water plus some dijon mustard to spice it up.
For protein shakes, I use Xtreme power whey. It comes in lots of great flavours. I usually mix it with water and berries to make a smoothy in the mornings.

I found a sugar free raspberry vinagriete at walmart that I can't taste the difference with. Its got like 5 cals per serving so no shame in putting that on a spinach salad with some cheese and raisins or strawberrys :)
And for protein, I have the Optimun Nutirion 100% Gold Standard Whey Protein in strawberry. Absolutely delicious. I add it to skim milk after I lift and its 200 calories and I'm not even hungry for dinner those nights.

Ditto on Premier Nutrition. Available as well at Sam's Club.
30g protein; low, low sugar.
I only drink 1 a week or so, as I like 0% fat Greek Yogurt (plain) and hard boiled eggs more for my extra protein intake, but they come in handy and are inexpensive.
also, to add to this post without creating a new one, does anyone drink protein shakes? I find the slim-rite generic version of slim fast to be very delicious, but contains alot of sugar. What do you guys think?
