EAS and Optimum Nutrition Protein Powders



Recommended Posts

Anyone try EAS or Optimum Nutrition Protein powders? From what I have read, protein isolate is the best, and I am looking for something that tastes good and has the biggest protein bang! I like sweet flavors like chocolate :)

I purchased "Optimum Nutrition 100% whey Gold Standard - Double Rich Chocolate" from Amazon since it had very strong reviews and was one of the best deals (if you sign up for Subscribe and Save you get 15% off so I ended up paying about $33 for 5 lbs. It will last about a month if you have two scoops a day, each scoop has 24g protein, and if you drink it with 8oz of milk each time t will give you 64g of protein for the day at the very least, plus some additional Calcium.

I would recommend it to someone starting out - Although calling it "double rich" is stretching it a bit, it's definitely chocolate and I enjoy it quite a bit. As time goes on and I can move to different foods I definitely want to play with my shakes, maybe add some pureed banana, espresso or some flavor syrups, but while I'm just getting the hang of things this powder is great.

to me the myoplex is just 'ok'. the RTD's are too sweet for me, and don't have quite that chocolate flavor. I think this is because of the variance of ingredients in powder vs. RTDs (because RTD's can sit on a shelf)

personally, Optimum Nutrition is good. It gives you variety (tons of flavors!!) and is reasonable priced. I also tend to just stick to GNC's brand of vanilla/chocolate whey isolate. if i'm on the run i can just mix my milk and powder together and drink it w/o adding syrups, fruit or other flavors. hope you find a good one!

I use EAS all the time. I blend it with ice and it makes a great shake. I too love the chocolate flavores and it is even better when I use frozen fruit instead of the ice. My favorite is adding frozen strawberry's with the chocolate. :D

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
