There are so many options out there when it comes to which whey protein to buy. I started taking the MuscleTech Whey Protein Plus mainly because it was the best bang for the buck. I have looked elsewhere and all other brands in a 5lb bag are a lot more money. You can get Muscletech 5lb 100% Premium Whey Protein Plus on Amazon.com for around $48 (prices change often), which is a really good deal.
They had an older version that didn’t taste as good but the new and improved version, Deluxe Chocolate, is delicious. It also comes in vanilla, although I have not tried it. It has 120 calories, 20g of protein, 9 g carbs, 1g fat, 2 g sugar per scoop and also has the essential BCAAs. It has a good amount of protein per serving but a little more carbs then some other brands. It is a whey concentrate which according to some isn’t as good as whey isolate. This is a topic for a whole new article. You can find out about the different kinds of protein here.
I have been taking this particular protein powder for a while now and usually mix it with skim or 1% milk. To me, it is almost like a chocolate shake, just not as thick. You can mix it with water although I have not tried it. I usually mix it with a hand mixer when at home but when I am out then I mix it with my blender bottle. It seems to mix pretty good with just the the blender bottle.
On the package it does say you shouldn’t exceed 5 servings in a 24-hour period and to also consume 10 glasses of water daily for good health. While protein powder is very convenient we still need to get protein from other sources such as meats and many other types of foods.
I would definitely recommend this protein to anybody looking for a less expensive, good tasting protein powder that will help increase their protein intake. Click here to try Muscletech 100% Premium Whey Protein Plus and start building muscle today!
**UPDATE** I have now tried the deluxe vanilla and it is also tastes very good but I still prefer the deluxe chocolate.
