Hey Nobbi!

I think the difference though is in the quality. The pure trim stuff has no soy or whey. It is pea and brown rice protein, and also has a whole host of other nutrional benefits according to the ingredients list.

can somebody help me with this?

I am trying to buy this stuff on line, I am clicking on "add to cart" but it is not adding it because when I click on "view cart" my cart is empty.

Can somebody please go to the site that Richard noted in his post above and see what I am doing wrong???

Many thanks.

I recieved a packet of the Pure Trim stuff Adam gives out. There is no deception here. I got the vanilla kind and it was fantastic. It certainly is worth having while traveling because it was filling, deserving of the term meal replacement. Sorry to Brendan, but I liked the taste of this better than vega. There was a slight sweet berry taste to the pure trim, but for me most of the vega tasted too sweet. I think they are both great products, don't get me wrong, but Adam's vanilla (only kind i've tried) wins my taste test.

Hi brian!

Sorry to Brendan too but HANDS DOWN Adam's shake tastes WAY better. I tried the chocolate one and like Topher had said once in a post, I am STILL shocked at how good it tastes every time I drink it.

I tried the chocolate one, and it was amazing. plain and simply amazing.

And Rob, I mixed it in a shaker cup and it mixed just fine. As a matter of fact, one of the other things about vega that I didnt like too much is that it was gritty, even after a good blender mixing!! :(

the pure trim mixes way better than the vega, and it tastes better too. That is just my opinion though.

As far as nutritional benefits beyond just protein, both products are made of good stuff.

Price wise, I think the Pure trim is a little more affordable too.

I am definitely addicted to the chocolate pure trim.

brian, you should order some of the choc too - you WILL NOT be disappointed.

Although it is a pain to mix all of these ingredients each day, this is what I have been adding to make a homemade protein shake using some of the finest superfoods out there. Cost per shake is about $1.67 per my computations:

1/4 cup shelled hemp seed (possibly the best protein source in the plant kingdom--hands down superior to whey, egg white protein and even soy for amino acid composition, with highly digestible edistein protein).

2 tablespoons freshly ground flax seed

1 tablespoon maca

1 teaspoon chlorella

1/4 cup blueberries (or strawberry, raspberry, banana, etc.)

2 teaspoons xylitol (sweetener)

1-2 tablespoons quinoa powder

1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds (or sunflower)

purified water sufficient to blend--usually 8 oz.

As I stated above, alot of work involved, but I do so enjoy experimenting with my Vita-Mix!
