Works for me
on 9 January 2013
Having just ordered my 2nd batch I can say with confidence that this stuff (in conjunction with my new workout regime) has worked well for me thus far.
Taking a shake about an hour after each meal, in the last month my weight has increased just shy of a stone.
I think it's important to note that my workouts have me 'burning/aching' every time. Not sure how key this is to my body absorbing the protein but I have used protein in the past with poor results. I rarely pushed myself back then though.
Also worth mentioning is that I use 3/4 of their recommended measure per shake with slightly more liquid. I tried 2 scoops in 300ml of water (their recommendation on the tub) and it was practically solid in consistency. 330ml and 1.5 scoops gives a nice smooth viscosity that's a lot easier to down.
I really like their vanilla flavour too. I have yet to try one with milk but with cold water they are very palatable and have become something I look forward to every time.
Initially bought this because of the low price and large size, will buy out of preference now.
I would advise upon delivery that you get a wooden spoon and give the contents a good stir before use because the 2nd batch I have, initially tasted very different to the first (It carried a slightly chalky taste and a stodgier texture). After stirring the contents it was a lot sweeter, more flavoursome, smoother in texture and generally in-line with the first batch.
Edit 3: [New Packaging]
Before, it would arrive in a box which was virtually the same size as the tub and in my experience the delivery driver would hand it over in an orientation that had the tub on its side.
Now though the box is much bigger, the tub now stands upright during transit and is suspended and surrounded by air-pillows. Consequently I didn't need to stir this batch. So-far it tastes perfect and is consistently smooth.
It mixes perfectly of-late too; I don't get any lumps any more.
