Whey protein is the only food which will get me to use the term “superfood”.
Want to burn fat? It can help you.
Want to build muscle? It can help you.
Want to use it to simply get more protein into your diet? It can help you.
It’s the ultimate convenience food and quite frankly, if you go to the gym (and don’t have an allergy) you should be using whey protein regularly.
But which one? How do you tell which whey protein is the best?
Use my handy top three list below. This shows you the exact products I and my top male and female clients use in the gym. Enjoy!
Optimum Nutrition 100% Gold Standard Whey
There’s a reason I work with Optimum.
They are the king of kings, especially when it comes to whey protein.
Their classic Gold Standard Whey has sat on top of the protein marketplace for years now, constantly ranked as Bodybuilding.com’s best seller, and is used by athletes all around the world.
It’s nutritional breakdown make it so flexible it can fit with either a muscle building or fat loss plan, and that’s why it’s the #1 choice.
Whey protein isolate is the main form of protein in the blend, and every serving provides:
- 23.7g protein
- 1.6g carbohydrates
- 1.3g fat
Myprotein Total Protein Blend
In second place, Myprotein Total Protein Blend.
Despite the fact that Myprotein’s best selling product is Impact Whey, this little beauty is much better than it’s famous brother.
It’s been a favourite of my clients for a few years, thanks to it’s strong blend of whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate, hydrolysed whey protein, milk protein concentrate and micellar casein.
It’ll provide a slightly slower release of protein because of this blend, leading to a more sustained feeling of fullness.
It’s also pretty handy if you’re training on a budget or looking for a backup whey protein supplement.
Every serving provides:
- 25g protein
- 1.2g carbohydrates
- 1.4g fat
Love Life Supplements Primal Power Whey Protein
Coming it at #3 on my list, LLS Primal Power Whey is a protein supplement you’re either going to love or hate.
You see, this is absolutely perfect if you follow a high protein, high fat diet.
(Which many people do nowadays, with the popularity of keto.)
I’ve reviewed a few LLS products now, and they’re a company to watch out for because they’re getting bigger every year thanks to their rock solid formulas and staunch insistence on using only the finest ingredients available.
You won’t find any cheap fillers or unnecessary clutter in here.
And that’s really the way it should be.
In Primal Power Whey, we get a blend of high quality grass fed whey protein, collagen, MCT oil, flaxseed and prebiotics. It’s packed with fiber too.
They’ve pulled no punches, and it deserves it’s place at the top of the high protein / high fat category, because it is literally miles ahead of it’s competitors.
Every serving provides:
- 20.3g protein
- 4.9g carbohydrates
- 10.6g fat
