Quoting Mena929:

Go to GNC and talk to one of the customer service reps there. They should be able to help you pick one based on your wants and needs for losing weight and getting healthy!

I do, and do not waste your money on the expensive one's. There is one at Wal-Mart called Body Fortress and a lot of men and women on my bodybuilding and weight loss sites use it and highly recommend it. It's like $14 for a big thing of it. It does the same exact thing as the higher priced one's. It even has Creatine in it. 

thanks ! yea i don't want to spend over $60 on something and then it doesnt work or if my dh doesnt like it.

GNC is a rip off. We go to vitamin shoppe.

DH uses MusclePharm. It tastes good and comes in so many different flavors

the products online do seem expensive.

 I use soy protein whenever I make pancakes. I go to the all-natural grocery stores for it.

I use genisoy chocolate flavored. It's tasty. Hubby switches between soy and whey, usually store brand. He likes them. I will suggest, though, buy yourself a blender bottle for mixing them, unless you'll be adding the powder to smoothies in a blender. The whisk-like ball that comes with the bottle works a lot better than a spoon for mixing!

My husband gives me a protein shake at least once a week.....sorry had to!

My husband does buy the powder at GNC they have all sorts of flavors.  Best bet is to go in and choose a flavor you like.
