Yes you need to at least get some protein shakes work, breakfast is a must even if it is only a shake. if you do not eat when you get up you may not feel like eating because your body will go into self preservation mode

Your body's metabolism generally goes into "starvation" mode if you haven't eaten in a while. Small, more frequent meals is more appropriate than sporadic large meals.

Tafkap is right about the starvation mode. Restricting your diet will jolt your body into starvation mode. This causes your body to burn lean muscle. Less muscle mass will cause a lower metabolic rate which will slow down any weight loss.

Thanks Coach. I do take calcium and d3 and another supplement. I will go see what GNC has. Maybe a protein shake will be tolerable on the days I don't want food. Too bad it's not every day. Lol Some days I feel like I'm gonna starve. Chocolate cures that. \:D

RutMan- I take an xmam each day around 9 or so.



I'd try Super Mix, you'll get all the real nutrients and vitamins needed daily that your body can/will absorb.


I think the supermix would be great but unless i read it wrong it would not meet your needs as a protein replacement. Supermix has 1 gram of protein - we are suppose to get between 10 and 35% of our daily calories from protein so going without eating and only adding supermix would not solve the issue at hand.

Read up on you protein intake Bow'd... Getting too little protein can be dangerous and can happen before you know it when your appetite is not present. Protein is really easy to get, whether from food or from shakes and its critical to your well being.

When I was in the best shape of my life - doing P90X like it was easy I was eating 6 times a day.. Several of those times would be almonds or unsalted peanuts and I was keeping up with calorie intake through a free calorie calculator on livestrong's website..

Yes, fuel your body about every 3 hours. It helps keep your metabolism up and going. It could be anything from a protein drink to a piece of fruit.

The best form of protein powder is whey. To break it down further..the best form of whey is a whey isolate or even a whey hydrolysate. The whey protein is a faster digesting from of protein as opposed to soy or egg or casein. Your best bet is to ingest some form of a good quality protein about every 2.5 to 3 hours. If your just not hungry then a protein supplement would be a good option. One of the best brands of this is Optimum Nutrition. Their Gold Standard Whey is a very good protein, but their Hydrowhey is even better but a little more expensive. Its also a good idea to take some form of a Casein protein(milk based) before bed. It takes 6-8 hours to digets, thus feeding your body while you sleep. Hope this helps.

Eightpointer - I take the wally world brand http://supplementreviews.com/body-fortress/premium-whey-protein simply because its the cheapest and has good reviews. I dont know diddly about digestion etc however after reading your post I'm interested in the casein protein (so I'll be checking the low price folks at wally world later to see if they have it )
The other reason I switched to the wally world stuff was - they keep it all the time and I never run out due to it being readily available.

Y'all got this stuff figured out. I will take the advice and try some. I can stomach about anything so it shouldn't be a problem to drink a shake. Thanks a ton!
