Thanks for the feedback, I am not so frustrated today :-) I am going to try using "Vega One" protein shake sweetened with stevia (Canadian version of a protein shake). It also has excellent balance nutrition properties in their formual...very good for the body.
Cal 138 / Carbs 11.4 / Fibre 6g / Sugars 1.4g and mixing it with Almond Breeze. I tried it before and it was yucky but they have redone they formula and the chocolate is okay. I might order the protein shake from amazon that you are recommending. But first give this a try see if it makes a difference.
Also made a pack with my daughter to do Jorge flat tummy routine to build some fat burning muscle. I have been walking with her and she commented on my pace is improving. So my goal of adding more movement is doing well...I will be hiking again this year!
