    Wondering if any of you have used Spiru-Tein Powder? I purchased some and mix mine with water add ice and it is a tasty Protein Drink. The doctor said I needed more protein in my diet.

    I failed to ask what he recommended. I have a friend that drinks this and seems pleased.
    Confused about what to buy. I need it for the protein not to build muscle.

    I used to eat that regularly in the 90s, loved it! I would mix it with vanilla yogurt and it tasted like frosting to me that way,mmmm, maybe I will get some more.
    The reason i stopped buying it is there was something crystallizing about some of the ingredients and it irritated my throat, had sort of phosphorus like abrasiveness or something I dont know what it was but made my throat feel scorched so stopped. NOt saying that was a bad thing but my body reacted strangely to something in it, maybe i will give it a go again and see how fare now.

    Hi gg - For more protein try adding nuts and seeds, low fat cheese and yogurt, lean meats and poultry, eggs, natural nut butters, legumes and lentils, and Salba.
