Great Product, and actually tastes good!
on 27 March 2015
Being a big fella, I struggle to get enough protein in without devouring 2 dozen eggs or £20's worth of steak a day. Though I prefer not to eat "un-natural" foods, from a budgetary and practical stance, I have little choice. I researched the market on protein powders, and the prices can vary dramatically. PhD have a good name, and the price seemed reasonable, so I gave it a whirl.
The primary thing with any of these (for most people, I expect), is what do they taste like. Well, the vanilla is lovely. Really, lovely. No peculiar after-taste, and that is a big plus if you're knocking one back as soon as you wake up. I only drink full fat milk, so for those interested, the macros come out like this (200ml full fat milk, plus one scoop of this stuff):
8.8g of good fat
11.2g carbs (8.2g net carbs)
One, or at the most, two of these a day has me comfortably hitting my protein needs...plus you don't have to cook it! It mixes easily, I just use a standard shaker, put in the milk (or water), a handful of ice, and the powder and two or three shakes and you're done. I always use ice, as it keeps it cold (drinking cold stuff burns more calories), and the ice helps break up any lumps that may have formed.
I have tried 4 flavours, though some of the others are available at better prices elsewhere (google it). I order of preference:
1. Vanilla (this one) and banana.
2. Strawberry (quite sweet, I let the ice melt a bit to dilute it)
3. Choc and mint (not as sweet as the strawberry, but does have a slight after-taste).
Your taste may vary, but you can't go wrong with the vanilla for starters. Being available on Prime is a plus.
The packaging is cumbersome, so I just got 4 little plastic tubs from Wilko, each holds a weeks worth plus the scoop (you get one in the pouch, and each is exactly one measure).
You can't go far wrong at this price.
