Hemp protein while trying to lose weight?

I know that whey can cause insulin spikes, but what about hemp protein? The hemp protein I have is actually mostly fiber (Nutiva Organic Hemp Protein Powder individual packets). Sometimes I want a quick way to supplement protein without cooking, but I've ditched whey because of the insulin spikes. Trying to lose the last 5 lbs.

jerky, macademia nuts, hard boiled eggs are my go too's. If I get caught in a bind I go to salami.

So what would you recomend, Dr. K, if a quick protein supplement is needed? Especially when I travel for work, it would be handy to have something.

They say 0% THC like it's a good thing!

What about egg protein? I know GNC carries some. I have no idea what other crap they throw in there though.

Check those insulin spikes with a glucometer. Generalization tend to be em well generalizations ;)

Not only does it taste terrible, it seems to go rancid pretty quickly.
