I am not a bodybuilder or an athlete, I am simply an older woman on a weight loss journey. Over the years I have been told that a diet high in lean protein and low in fat and carbs is better for you. When I was asked to try and review this Whey Protein Isolate, I jumped at the chance. I wanted to see for myself if a powder that is high in protein and low in carbs, sugar, cholesterol and calories would keep me satisfied as a meal.
I have to say that it does indeed keep me satisfied. I had it mixed with 8oz of 2% milk instead of eating lunch and it actually kept me full for a good 5 hours. Usually when I eat lunch, I have more calories and in 2 or 3 hours I'm hungry. I have to snack on a piece of fruit or a yogurt to get me through til dinner. I was really surprised that I didn't have to after drinking this.
I had the vanilla one which tastes pretty good. Now I'm curious as to how the dutch chocolate one tastes as well and may have to plunk down some cash and try it out. I noticed my energy level increased about an hour after drinking it as well. I sometimes get tired during the day and find myself dozing in front of the computer but I haven't the two days that I drank this. It could be coincidence but I don't think so.
I like that it has 25 grams of protien, only 110 calories, no sugar, no fat and very little cholesterol. It has 130 mg of calcium and only 51mgs of sodium so its pretty good for you. I can't attest to the muscle building attributes other than I know if you don't eat enough protien when you are dieting, you can lose muscle mass instead of fat. Ingesting something with a high level of protein should help to keep that from happening.
