Hey everyone, so I am posting in regards to my current supplement usage. I have recently decided to start using whey protein to amplify my muscle building and strength gain. So I began using Six Star Pro Nutrition Whey Isolate Plus.
Everyone looks for specific qualities in their protein. I was looking for very low carb (preferably zero), high protein, low fat, low calorie, and a good taste. If you’ve read my post on the Low Carb Diet or the Keto Diet, you know that I’m not a fan of carbohydrates. So finding a protein worthy of my conditions is kind of hard since the majority of proteins have sugar for taste. And taste is a very big factor for me, because I don’t want to force down my protein.
Taste is one of the biggest factors in whether or not I will purchase or continue use with a protein powder. Finding a good tasting powder while looking for no sugar added is rough, and usually “unflavored”. But if you’ve had the no flavor powder, then you’d know it still tastes weird. Luckily, Whey Isolate Plus comes in two flavors; vanilla and decadent chocolate. I enjoy the chocolate much more, because it tastes similar to a Yoo-Hoo.
It’s low-carb at only 2G per scoop. So it’s definitely a good choice for those like me trying to keep a low-carb diet in check while also trying to build. Pretty sure the carbs come primarily from the dietary fiber.
The calorie content is a low 140 per scoop. Actually not too bad. I can usually burn that off during my daily run, so it’s fantastic that it only has a small amount. I typically try to take in 1000 a day with most of it coming from proteins and veggies.
I have also seen a great recovery shrink in the time I’ve began using it. My muscles seem to repair faster and with more mass and definition. Though it is little by little, every inch is a mile.
Let me know what you think of this protein if you’ve tried it. And let me know of any suggestions you guys might have!
