Hey guys, gals, and everyone else!
I was recently approached by the wonderful people at MyProtein.com to try out some of their products, and give my opinion! They are a pretty big company overseas, and are looking to branch out into the United States.I chose to review their BCAAs, Diet Whey Protein Powder, and a pair of leggings! Keep reading to find out about this awesome company!
First off let’s start with the leggings! MyProtein pairs with Under Armour, so I was super excited about these! The quality is A+ awesome, and they’re a bit fuzzy on the inside. Super comfortable….if only they fit me. Now I usually wear a size 6 pants, and tend to size up when buying workout gear.I’m not about that transparent butt life okay. So it’s kind of my fault they don’t fit.
I believe these were supposed to be comparable to a size 8. BUT They were way to loose on me. So I gave them to my good friend, Brenna, who wears a 8/10 in regular jeans. She said that they felt great, but were still a bit too loose on the waistband.
For reference Brenna is 6 foot, so these are pretty long! I definitely like their online color choices and the cute little branding on the band.
Next up!! The protein. Now I was excited about this because it only has 6 grams of carb per serving size. Now wait a second. CARBS ARE GOOD. YOU NEED THEM. I hate when women try and live on a minimal amount of carbs. Seriously, you’ll be a bitch without them. That being said, I like to get my carbs from other places….like Mac N’Cheese, not my protein. Because let’s face it-it just tastes better that way.
The Protein came in a giant bag! I mean you get a months worth of products, just the bag is a little obnixious. MyProtein if you’re listening…smaller bags please. I chose Vanilla Cookie because I figured I could use that flavor the most ways. This is a super thick powder, but it does taste just like a vanilla cookie! I would suggest not putting it with ice though…mine was kind of clumpy the first time because of it. I actually froze a glass of this mixed with Almond Milk and it t’was amazzzzing! I think this would also be a really good Whey powder to bake with. I’ll let you know 😉 Over all it’s a nice solid protein powder, for a pretty decent price!
Another thing I like about MyProtein…they offer vegetarian and vegan protein! They have a huge variety of products ranging from greens for smoothies, protein soup mixes, workout great and much more! Just for that fact they get an A+
Do you remember in my Fitness Update post how much I raved about BCAAs? (If not catch up here!) Well because I love not being super sore the day after a workout, I just had to try their version of BCAAs! I got Berry Blast, which to be honest, was a bit of a let down! The mix had a typical slightly bitter taste (like many BCAAs do) but there was next to know berry flavor. I was definitely not sore the next day, but it wasn’t anything special. MyProtein does sell flavor drops to put with any of their products, so I think combining those two might help! If you’re looking for a decently priced Amino Acid this is a good one, just don’t expect a great flavor. And again with the bags……On the plus side, these don’t take up a ton of room in the gym bag!
Overall, I like the brand! I think (besides user error) they have great products! They most certainly have something for everyone! I’m planning on trying their lifting gloves and smoothie green additive next…and maybe a protein cookie or two 😉
Have any of you tried MyProtein products before? Let me know down below!
