For those of you who are following my P90X3 journey with Fitness here on SweetLifeFitness.net, I wanted to also share my Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein review.
I have been using Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein for about six months now. I first started using it during my Focus T25 journey, and now continue with my P90X3 journey as well.
I have tried a LOT of different protein shakes. Things off the shelf, things that were cheap, different flavors, you name it. But they were all pretty nasty! I guess you get what you pay for. They had issues like:
- Nasty, Nasty, Horrible, Why-Would-You-Drink-This-Stuff Taste #puke
- Clumpy. It was hard to find a protein shake that didn’t have a bunch of clumps in it.
But using a quality Whey Protein shake is important unless you want to be eating Chicken all day long. Who could stand to eat that much chicken every day in and day out?
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein – A Different Kind of Shake
There were a few things I liked about Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein, including:
- How well the powder blends with any liquid of choice (water, almond milk, etc).
- It actually TASTES good
- Blends well with Shakeology
- For Chocolate Flavors, I like to mix in a scoop of Natural Peanut Butter
- For Vanilla or Strawberry Flavors, I like to mix in blueberries or a Banana.
The downside is that it can be around $50-100 depending on if you get the regular stuff or the Natural Whey Protein (difference is artificial sugars/flavors in the less expensive tub). You can see the different options and prices below.
