I hardly ever do protein shakes for the same reasons listed above: too much unnecessary fillers and junk, sweetners, gums, weird binding agents, etc. If I do I blend my own, and I almost never do that because I hate cleaning out the blender.

Mostly I get a lot of protein from the way I eat: lots of dairy, eggs, and meat, LOTS of veggies (I try to cook with a different one every couple days), a few fruits here and there, and keep grains to a minimum, except for oatmeal in the morning for energy. I get all the protein I need, all of my vitamins and minerals, lots of plant nutrients, and next to no starch, which causes water retention and makes me look "fuller" rather than "leaner."
