Looking to lose weight, have been working out for about 3 weeks now and also eating better. What kind of protein shakes could I be using and what kind of meals does everyone else go for?

If you're only doing cardio don't bother with protein shakes, it's just additional calories your body doesn't need. Just stick to a healthy mix of carbs/protein/fats - Just by splitting your meal into 3 parts and making sure something of each type is on your plate is a good step towards living and being healthier.

I disagree with that slightly Teri. Eat more veg than salad than you do fruit coz fruit is high in natural sugars and so will also add unnecessary calories.

CARBS = oats, brown rice, wholewheat pasta, milk, sweet potato (try to stay away from the white versions)

FATS = avocado, peanut butter, almond butter, almonds

Instead of protein shakes i'll advice you take a veg/fruit blend. ( some spinach, almonds, berries, 1/2 banana, coconut oil) add some water and blend. The fruit you add is optional. Its healthier and filling too. ( just my suggestion)
