Do you want to lose weight? Of course that is a resounding YES. One way to lose weight is to build lean muscle mass. In order to build lean muscle, you need to have adequate amounts of protein per day. It is recommended that you consume at least 1g of protein for every pound of weight you have. So, if you weigh 101 lbs, it is advised that you intake 101g of protein per day.
That being said, you need to have a protein-rich diet. But, what about those days that you cannot eat your body-weight protein because of factors such as stress, low energy, among others? There is good news, as you can still achieve that recommended protein intake per day, with the help of protein supplements!
Today, we’re going to talk about a Whey protein supplement that is created by a company who has been in the industry for many, many years now. I am talking about the Optimum Nutrition (ON) 100% Gold Standard Whey Protein Isolates.
Optimum Nutrition prides themselves as the only company that has created quality Whey Protein Isolates. As you may know, Whey is just derived from Milk. But, ON’s 100% Gold Standard Whey has more than just Whey Protein Isolates. It also has 4g of Glutamine and Glutamic acid and 5g of BCAAs (Branched-Chain Amino Acids) per scoop that further improve muscle growth and recovery.
The 100% Gold Standard Whey is also very tasty and with a variety of flavors to choose from (20 to be exact), you will not only have a great-tasting protein shake, you will also have the ingredients you need to build that lean muscle mass.
I’ve personally tried this Whey protein and it is indeed great tasting. I’ve had the double rich chocolate and boy, it not only tastes great, but I did see lean muscle growing after 2 months!
It is not only me raving about this Whey Protein supplement. Here are other customer reviews:
Andrew: “This is my go-to whey protein. Protein, BCAAs, and glutamine with awesome mixability. This is quality, low-calorie whey protein that lives up to its name as the “Gold Standard.” Extreme Milk Chocolate flavor is pretty good, but Double Rich Chocolate is lighter-tasting, which tastes better for me. Strawberry (in the 10lb bag at least) legit tasted like Pepto-Bismol; yuck! In terms of a versatile whey, I would only compare this to ON’s Pro Complex as it has more protein and less calories, but unfortunately they don’t have sizes over 3 pounds. I’ve had 7 years with this amazing product.”
Jeffrey: “I have been using ON Gold Standard for a while now – it mixes well, tastes good (not as great as others but it’s also a better product than the tastier ones so I am OK with that) and it’s a good value. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to supplement their protein without breaking the bank.
The ‘Extreme Milk Chocolate’ is my favorite of the flavors, but others are pretty good as well. I shy away from the fruit based flavors though, I have never found them to be as good as chocolates and vanillas.”
