I am currently cutting bodyfat. I am doing HST and reducing calories while consuming about 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight. I have been drinking a protein shake to replace my dinner while cutting. I've been using this powder. I never really put any research into that particular powder, though. I just started using it because my dad had some. Labrada has now discontinued the banana flavor which I was using, and I'm not too fond of the other flavors. So, I've decided to switch to another powder, and I'd like to have a little knowledge behind my decision this time. I see that there are meal replacement protein powders. This would seem to me to be the logical choice since I am replacing a meal, but the meal replacement proteins that I have seen are higher in carbs than what I currently have. I think that the higher carbs would be worse for someone trying to cut fat. Am I right? Is there something different about meal replacement proteins? More precisely: Do meal replacement protein contain anything that I would not get from a "non-meal replacement" protein powder?
