I haven’t tried many different protein powders in my fitness journey, but I have found ones that I like quite quickly in the process. I know what flavors I do and do not like, and I tried the first brand suggested to me and it’s still a favorite. I have tried a couple others, but in my opinion, Optimum Nutrition’s Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein is the best, in taste, price, and quality.
Nowadays, they have so many yummy flavors to choose from besides the classic vanilla or chocolate. They also offer varying sizes of the protein. From 1 lb tubs, up to 10! I recently purchased the Coffee flavored in the 5 lb tub, coffee addict that I am. It finally arrived on my doorstep late yesterday evening, so I wasn’t able to try if after my workout. My first flavor to try was French Vanilla Creme. While it was good, I feel like I grew tired of that flavor quick. I should have found more creative ways to mix it. So now I am exceedingly anxious to try Coffee!! BodyBuilding.com also had a promotion going on when I bought my 5lb tub, I received a 1lb tub for free and I was able to choose one of three flavors, so I went with Vanilla Ice Cream to switch things up.
Other than having a wide variety of delicious flavors, Gold Standard is one of the top rated whey proteins on the market, used by countless people in the fitness world to help recover after a workout. Protein is essential for that, otherwise we wouldn’t get big, strong muscles! And the best part is girl’s can use it too. Of course, they have other brands made strictly for girls, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use Gold Standard. Everyone needs protein and Gold Standard’s is exactly what I need to get my extra protein in for the day and what I look forward to after a workout.
I feel like if you are going to spend money, it should be on something beneficial to you and your health. So obviously that doesn’t mean fast food!! But that is just my opinion. Investing in your health is the best investment!!
