Ready-to-drink Protein drinks

Hi ladies! I'm pretty new to the forum here and not too experienced with bodybuilding either but I'm looking for a bit of help. My b/f's been a great help with my training regime etc as he's been bodybuilding for some years now. I'm 30, 5'3" and 9 stone (have lost 1/2 stone since June/July). Because of my shifts I can only get to the gym about twice a week, so this is how my weekly routine (roughly!) looks
Mon - cardio & abs
Tue - chest & legs
Wed - cardio
Thur - back & shoulders
Fri - cardio & abs
Sat or Sun - bi's & tri's.
My regime changes to suit my shifts but I try to work each body part at least once a week. What I'm looking for is a ready to drink protein drink. I tried mixing one up and taking it in to work but by the time I drank it it was vile! Is there anything on the market 'SlimFast' style? If anyone knows of anything like this I'd appreciate any info, and if anyone has any advice on how to improve my training, or tell me if it sounds ok, that would be appreciated too!
Cheers,

Debsa

    Hello debsa welcome to muscletalk!

    Would it be possible for you to take a serving or two to work with you in a small plastic bag,something like a sandwich bag?


    This is what i do for work and mix it up there,i take 3 bags of protein and 1 creatine lol

    Believe me if you could do this it would work out far cheaper than buying the ready to drink cartons!!!

    good luck

    Hi & welcome

    RTD's are convienient but I'd use sparingly due to high cost. As Red mentions, I keep a tub of protein at work with a shaker then mix & guzzle when required.

    Debsa,
    I recently came across a bottled drink (orange or blackcurrent) It's just like squash, and has 30g of protein. Taste great, but for the life of me I can't remember the name of it!!! (sorry)
    I'll be going back to the warehouse soon to get some, & I'll update you with the details.

    I use The Ministry Of Fitness banana, tropical and chocolate (not all together mind!) Very reasonably priced and very palatable.

    Have a look at this sites:
