muscle milk tastes good but I don't like the amount of fat they have in their muscle milk line. I know they rave about their "medium chain triglycerides" but I prefer to make my own protein shakes and modify the protein/carbs/fats the way i want it.

On the go though a ready made muscle milk hits the spot a whole lot better than a cheeseburger and fries.

I used Muscle Milk for a while. Tastes good. I always felt a little, bloated off it. Switched over to BioPro and Protizyme so I could make my own Zone-specific, fish-oil-laced shakes.

Optimum Nutrition makes a great 100% egg protein powder which has no sugar, no lactose, and no aspartame. I don't have all the specifics about it's nutritional content but it is a great 3-block shake (22g protein) if you're a PaleoZone dieter. It tastes pretty decent to. It does contain minimal amounts of sucralose but other than that it's pretty legit. I have experimented with supplements, muscle milk, etc., in the past and I like this stuff the best.

hmmm... I haven't tried ON 100% egg protien, i tried the Bioplex one a while ago and it really messed up my gut in terms of bloating etc...

i used to use ON Whey, combined with "Just Carbs" which is straight up matlodextrin plus some peanut/almond butter when looking for the fat.

Muscle milk (I called it Mother's milk b/c it is SO F'N GOOD) has a variety of flavors that is unrivaled. I took a few bites dry here and there I liked it so much. You can get it ~ $18/tub online. Google it. There are cleaner powders out there, but like Allen said, on the road w/o blender and stuck w/ the "shaker", MM, milk, and a handful of nuts is is a 5-star breakfast.
