Hey there!
I can't give you a hard time about being MIA from this board, when I have been too so you need not cover your face around me!
I also thought about trying some other ways to lose weight, but thought the better of it when I realised how unsafe it would be for tummy. It is tempting, though.. and if I could just eat a big salad and Not feel like I was choking for the next 3-7 hours, I'd go ahead and do it but until then I am going to have to live with carbs!

As for protein shakes, I don't have a large product base to advise from but I recently bought "GeniSoy" vanilla flavoured protein powder and haven't had any problems with it so far. I bought it at Costco, but I know I have seen it other places. I have made mocha shakes (decaf instant coffe, organic dairy-free cocoa mix, vanilla Silk soy milk and ice) and a berry one (Silk vanilla soy, frozen blueberries and strawberries, ice and some honey).
So far I have been using one scoop of powder and then diving it into two shakes 'cause it makes a lot and Adrian drinks the 2nd one... so I am not really getting the full serving of protein. I had the berry one and some slices of potato for breakfast the other day and wasn't hungry 'til the afternoon.

I definitely think it is better to stay away from those diet plans that aren't good for your body. You can always watch your sodium intake and all that on one of those tracking sites like or something if you are concerned about it.

Good luck, lemme know if you get another protein powder and what it's like!
