Very great high protein whey powder bodybuilding supplement
Each scoop contains a very high 26 grams of protein, 130 calories, 2 grams fat, and 2 grams sugars. There is about 7 grams of BCAA’s per 2 scoops. Each scoop is 33 grams of powder and there are about 28 servings per container or if you double scoop about 14 servings per container.
The taste is great when mixed with milk. The vanilla flavor isn’t so exciting when mixed with water but is still ok. Make sure to blend this in a blender for best taste. Or atleast use a shaker bottle to mix this with your drink, it wont be as good as blended but still ok. I wouldn’t recommend mixing this with a spoon because it tends to get very clumpy and wont disolve thoroughly and doesn’t taste very good. I’ve also tried the chocolate flavor and will say that the vanilla tastes better.
Results are good while using this product. I have gained many pounds of muscle in a few months. So far all my muscle groups have seen gains while using this product. Don’t expect this product to be a miracle powder if you don’t do the hard work necessary to gain muscle. For best results use before and after your workouts.
Here is the “current” ingredients list:
Whey protein blend (whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate), super recovery blend (creatine monohydrate, taurine, L-glutamine, leucine, isoleucine, valine), cocoa (processed with alkali), natural and artificial flavors, soy lecethin, acesulfame potassium, sucralose.

Great for Recovery!!! I take Optimum Nutrition and Body Fortress
I finished the Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein – Strawberry so I bought a large tub of Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein. After a week of use, I realize that the Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein is a far superior for recovery with their ‘recovery mix’ included in their whey protein (Creatine, Taurine, L-Glutamine, etc…). I very much prefer it after work outs to the ON Gold Standard. I prefer the ON protein in the morning and pre-work out. It doesn’t have the recovery blend and is much more subtle.
Strawberry in both flavors taste decent, the Body Fortress is a bit sweet and tastier than the ON Strawberry but both are fine. They both mix well, the Body Fortress does have a few crystals sometimes, the ON is a finer powder and gets everywhere as find dust.
I work out 4-6 days a week depending on fatigue. The results so far are promising just in 4 weeks.. I’m retaining lean muscle, which is especially important after I’ve started running at least 2-3 miles a day and 4-5 miles on cardio/carb days (essentially every other day)and I’ve increased strength and already pushing harder after my rest day each week. (you have to put the time and challenge yourself for results). I’ve changed my daily diet as well to high protein and low carb so realize it takes more than just a protein shake to really get results. I’m taking in carbs in fruits, vegetables, rices and pastas for the low carb part of my diet.
The price is good at $15 for 2 lbs if you grab a couple 2lbs tubs with free delivery. I really missed the Creatine, Taurine, L-Glutamine in the Body Fortress blend and had to get it even though I have a 5lbs tub of Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard.
This is a far superior ‘recovery’ whey protein/recovery blend for after work outs compared to the Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard. I like the ON Gold Standard in the morning and just before I work out.
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.
Great taste, perfect portions
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.
