Starting Shakeology... What do I do with my protein powder?
I'm finally going to get Shakeology!
My goal is to lose weight... I have about 60 lbs to go.
I have a question for those who are already on it... I just got my whey isolate protein powder not that long ago so I still have a lot of it. Do any of you use both Shakeology and protein powder? (not in the same smoothie but separately... like Shakeology for breakfast and protein powder in another time)...? Would that be okay or should I give away my protein powder?
I do use protein powder when I make oatmeal to increase the protein but other than that, I've only been using it for shakes.

(My protein powder has 110 calories, 0 g fat, 0 g sugar, 25 g protein per scoop)

Oh, and I'm currently on Insanity Month 2..

I do. I drink my Shakeology in the morning and then I use my whey protein as a post workout recovery drink within an hour of finishing at night. Before starting Shakeology I was drinking the whey protein twice a day.

Hi, you can mix Shakeology and protein powder. Not a problem with that. I actually add coffee there too for breakfast.

I would take Shakeology as a snack or at breakfast and keep the whey protein for a post-workout drink.

Hey, Shakeology would be great to use as a breakfast meal replacement to help aid in your weight lose. You could use the whey protein as a post workout shake. Maybe add a 1/2-1 cup of fruit to aid in the recovery process. Also, you could take 1/2 a scoop of your whey with your Shakeology to boost the protein content. Hope that helps!

Hmmm the recipe with Greek Yogurt sounds very good.
I've been trying to use GY at least once a day...

Thanks!

I love GY, sometimes I put it over fruit, I use it in cooking instead of sour cream. I put it on food where I would sour cream

In the shakes you cant even tell its there.

Greek yogurt is amazing in Shakeology! I usually put plain non-fat in and it makes the shake creamy and smooth. Love it!
