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

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
