"... Over-rated and well marketed, compare to Scitec 100% whey or Dymatize and the taste is on another level, it saddens me ON have such a strangehold when really it doesn't deserve it. Far better proteins out there and for me Scitec is number 1 with Dymatize running a close 2.

Marketing wins sadly."

"... Hi everybody, i have a question for you guys, i want to lose weight do you recommend me
this protein or what? how much grams do i have to take daily? my weight is 190 lbs.

response by Carl

To lose or gain weight, you need to always look at your protein and take in 1 to 1.5 grams of protein per 1 pound of body weight. This is one of the highest quality protiens out there not to mention the best flavor selection.

"... Why does my protein smell after using one quarter of the jug? However, just after one using one quarter I do feel the differences! :D Great product!"


August 21, 2012
response by Tommy

No idea why it smells different, what is the expiry date? How long ago did you open it? Did you tighten properly each time?

Either way, glad you're getting good results it's by far the best quality protein on the market for the past decade.

"... Well, it`s a good Whey Protein with a nice selection of flavours. BUT, I think it is overrated. There are many comparable quality Whey proteins out there which are at least just as good. You also won`t get the benefit from naturals complete composition of milk protein-you miss the slow digested Casein which has shown its advantages...if only one protein powder supplement, you better opt for a Whey Casein blend."

Every meal is kinda crazy you at least need a post workout. I like to do a half dose pre workout.

"... Easily the best tasting protein shake out there, and I have gone through dozens of other brands throughout the years. I am currently using the all new White Chocolate flavor and it's delicious.. not too sweet but just perfect. Mix it with milk for a creamier texture and some added protein.

Going to be trying out the new Hydro Whey ON came out with.

5/5 all day long!"

"... The best protein out there for me. Best combination of taste (so many awesome flavors to choose from, I love at least 8 of them with a passion), the best ingredients which lead to the best results. I've been using whey for years now, about 8 and I am sure that the extra 100-150 grams of protein I take in a day has helped me with all of the success I've had. As we all know, protein is ESSENTIAL for growing and repairing muscle tissue.. simple as that.

"... hi. my name is casey. I lift 3-4 days a week.. but right now i have a injured shoulder from wrestling tournament. Anyways, about this product is that it is great and youll never find a better taste out there. I take the double milk choclate, and its way better than any other protein ive had. i only take 1 scoop which is 25 g of protein, so i constantly drink milk, and eat meats and skip out on the ice cream. If you are one who wants to lose weight than i defenetly reccomend this product..GREAT muscle building product to."

"... The only protein supplement I have used, over the past 10+ years. Unlimited amount of GOOD flavors to choose from and no bloating/gas side-effects. If you read the label and do your research you will see without a question of a doubt that optimum has the best nutritional values out there. There is a reason it's #1.. I really can't see my progress going the way it is over the years without it.

"... Not a bad protein, but being DIRT CHEAP is not always a good thing. If you want to see serious results spend the money to get a protein higher in LEUCINE. LEUCINE makes all the difference. 8 grams in GNC Wheybolic 60.... by far the best I've taken in years."

"... Harkanwar what is 'folks' for mixing? sorry I'm still learning the terminology...

I have seen this brand for a while now but havent thought much about it, only recently I ran out of my 5kg cell biology protein so I am in the market for a new one, ive done some reading on this and seems that out of about 30 - 40 user reviews only 5 or so are negative, i'm definately going to try this out next!"

"... Been using this for a week now and three servings every day ensures I'm getting there at the earliest. I don't want to try EAS. If it isn't broke, why fix it. For best results, mix with water and use folks for mixing. I got mine free since a friend didn't want his stash anymore."

And not loaded with sugar like the other brands do that try to make it better tasting but in turn make you fat. 100% Whey is #1, no question."

"... Best in my opinion, ever. There is a reason it has won 2005, 2006 best protein shake of the year. And no doubt it will win again with 2007. I just got my rocky road flavor 10lb bag and it's heaven! Seriously folks, it's like drinking desert but you get the best whey isolate out there. I am looking forward to more flavors, even though it's hard to beat it now! A+++"

"... I think 100% whey protein is the best whey isolate on the market today and tomorrow. Optimum Nutrition is ahead of the times with their technology and products. As well, the flavors are great and if you mix it with milk and some fruit then it's like a store-bought smoothie, except it's 100% healthy for you. Easy score of 5/5 for value and 5/5 of quality."

"... Well where do we begin? Whey Protein powder is KEY in any health, fitness program. There are truly an infinite number of reason why your body needs it. Well ok maybe not that many but enough to make it necessary. Some quick highlights include whey protein having amino acids, which are THE building blocks to recovery and building of new muscle tissue. Sounds good right? Well it gets better, optimum nutrition contains no added carbohydrates, and it is the only pharmaceutical grade protein around.

Whey protein has become the staple supplement for most bodybuilders, other athletes, as well as recently anti-aging & longevity-minded groups.

With Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein, you get amazing taste, unbeatable quality and dirt cheap prices."
