My feedback and how I use this WHEY protein
I have been taking Body Fortress almost for two years straight every morning. I mostly buy it from WALMART, but made a subscription in Amazon for the monthly delivery. For this specific Body Fortress since I have tried all different flavors, I recommend cookie and cream, and strawberry after it. This is how I make my shake every morning: (I always mix in BLENDER)
Calories almost: 360
Half a cup skim milk (higher calorie than water but less than full milk)
1 scoop cookie and cream flavor Body Fortress whey protein
1 ripe banana
4 ice cubes (DON’T FORGET THIS)
tiny bit of cinnamon (for its thermogenic fat burning effect, preventing sugar spike)
Calories almost: 390
Half a cup orange juice or orange+peach or orange+coconut or orange+strawberry juice
1 scoop strawberry flavor Body Fortess whey protein
1/2 cup of frozen berries (preferably black and raspberry) (No need for ice since these are frozen)
1 table spoon of Norwegian Cod liver oil (for your essential fatty acids)
tiny bit of cinnamon (for its thermogenic fat burning effect)
Make any of the above shakes (cookie and cream preferably) and enjoy a thick, tasty, thick nutritious shake.
Just a quick reminder: Don’t keep on taking icy cold shakes every morning like me straight for a year, then your stomach will get upset.
Best Value Protein
Ive used a lot more expensive products, so I know what to compare it to. For it’s price range, it’s an excellent product. There’s nothing wrong with using this protein, it’ll work.
Good. 26 grams protein for 140 cals. Definitely acceptable.
Better than I expected. I mixed 2 scoops in about 16 ounces of water with a knife and it actually almost all dissolved within 20 seconds. Ive seen far worse. No major clumping.
Not terrible. I wouldn’t call it great, but it is drinkable even in water. In milk it’s pretty good. If the added calories aren’t a concern, I would suggest adding .5-1 tablespoon of peanut butter to it. That greatly improves the flavor.
I’m giving this flavor of the product 5 stars for its quality relative to its price. Yes, there are better products out there, but for 2-3 times the cost. I think body fortress did a great job of making a decent product for an affordable price.
Brand is great, but taste varies
Taste, however, is another issue. The Cookies and Cream version here is far too sweet for my taste, but you can tame it down by using coffee powder or cocoa. The chocolate and chocolate peanut butter do taste alright, but again too sweet. Same remedy. I happen to like the Strawberry, but again mix it with something tangy to reduce the sweetness. Vanilla is meh.
They don’t make an unflavored, in this brand. They receive a lot of requests for unflavored, yet still I guess not enough to make that version.
Mixing is a problem. Best to mix with powdered milk, then add water, for faster dissolution. Or, mix with a whole uncooked egg; that works quite well (uncooked eggs preserve biotin). Else, put the scoop in first, add a VERY SMALL amount of water, so you can mix the two into a paste. Let it sit a bit, maybe a minute or two. Then add more water and slowly.
Or — and I do this a lot — dump the scoop into a bowl, then add grapenuts/oatmeal, then slowly mix in a little water at a time. You won’t mind the lumps, that way.
Or — and I do this routinely, too — dump the scoop into some yogurt, mix slowly with a chopstick or fork.
The calories are about the same as eating the same amount of chicken, fish, so you’re not really saving on calories. Even so, the satisfaction lasts. I can go all day on just one scoop, so don’t have to mess with cooking and eating.
It travels well. I took three flavors of the protein on a trip mid-April, covered up in those Rubbermaid 8-ounce cups with the screw-on lids; and of course TSA wanted to know what kind of food was in the cups, but they were able to test easily. Each cup fits into one quart zip-up bag, and stored easily at the (standup) bottom of the suitcase. Saved me on room service and time waiting!
Product doesn’t really grow your muscles, k? That’s a gimmick. Better reason to buy it, is to save time versus cooking and eating regular protein food. If you ARE on a diet, the only food the body can’t replicate, is protein. So take it, and vitamins. Don’t starve yourself, that will only lower your metabolism so much, you won’t lose weight at all. But do cut back on calories; this is a way to help do that, because you’re cutting out the fat.
