I have been using whey for about 2 years now, and it has helped with my training and seen some very good gains. I usually buy whey from halland & barret or York from argos, as these are reasonably priced brands. But the prices have gone up, so I had a look on Amazon for a new brand. Optimum were voted best brand in 2010, so Ithought Id try them. I Have a few pros and cons:
good protein per serving: 23g protein to 120kcal.
25 servings a tup
I opted for the milk chocolate, seen as I have had strawberry for the past 5 months, I have tried just chocolate in the past too, I found these tasted ok. The milk chocolate tastes abit sweet, dont get me wrong it is really nice, but its abit sweet and sickly. I drink it with water, so it would be even sweeter with milk :L.
Buying protein shakes is really good as I need 200g protein a day and foe 23g servings it works out at only 65p, compared to £1.20 for some tuna.
Also I have tried the Maximuscle brands in the past, and for the extra money they are, they arent worth it, to be honest this brand is very good, the only thing I can fault is its abit sweet, but Ill try normal chocolate in the future, or maybe mint chocolate :D Oh and a quick word of advice banana tastes horrible so dont try that, it was impossible to drink I chucked it in the end.
I hope this has helped with any descion making.
