We all know how much I adore Myprotein. This brand has been helping me reach my goals for nearly 2 years now. Nutrition is a huge part in achieving muscle growth and strength, so while supplements are not necessary to succeed, they can help. It’s not always easy getting enough protein in each day. I mean, sometimes I crave something sweet, but it needs to be protein-dense. I honestly can’t think of any main protein source that is sweet, can you?
I get a lot of questions about what I recommend from Myprotein, so I hope this helps you out. I can definitely see how their website could be overwhelming because of the various types of proteins and the infinite flavors to choose from, but no worries! I got you.
Here are my top Myprotein recommendations:
Impact Whey Protein.
When you see people drinking protein shakes immediately after they workout, they’re drinking whey protein. Whey is fast-absorbing, which means it goes straight to your muscles to help them grow and recover. Whey protein can help you increase strength, gain muscle, and low body fat. Packed with 18g of protein and just 100 calories, the impact whey protein is a quality source of protein that supports any fitness goal. I mix my impact whey protein with water and/or unsweetened original almond milk. It’s a good snack to hold you over between meals and it’s great for a post-workout treat. Shop Impact Whey Protein.
My Suggested Flavors: Salted Caramel, S’mores, Chocolate Stevia, Birthday Cake, Strawberry Amaretto, Peanut Popcorn, Butter Pecan, Cinnamon Roll
Casein is a slow-release protein, meaning it takes longer for it to complete the digestion process. Because of this, casein is your best friend for muscle recovery. It helps maintain and rebuild muscle for hours after it’s consumed. It’s perfect for getting a sustained supply of protein between meal and even while you sleep, which is what I tend to do. I make my Casein Fluff every single night before I sleep, that way I am always fueling my training goals. One serving of casein has 23g of protein and only 110 calories. Casein is great for baking. Things like pancakes, waffles, muffins, cookies, you know it--casein will add some extra protein. Casein also makes for very creamy smoothies when blended with frozen fruit. Shop Slow-Release Casein.
My Suggested Flavors: Chocolate Smooth, Strawberry Cream, Vanilla (Disclaimer: in my option, the vanilla doesn’t taste good by itself, but it’s phenomenal when mixed into oats, yogurt, smoothies, etc.)
Soy Protein Isolate.
This is a vegan, vegetarian, and lactose intolerant-friendly protein blend. I was actually shook the first time I tried this. The flavor is phenomenal; it tastes like a chocolate ice cream smoothie. It’s more comparable to whey protein than casein. In just one scoop there is 110 calories and 26g of protein! So the next time your friends tell you that you can’t get enough protein in if you’re vegan, show them this. I love making smoothies out of the soy protein isolate; it goes really well with frozen fruit. Shop Soy Protein Isolate.
My Suggested Flavors: Chocolate Stevia
Essential IBCAA 2:1:1.
BCAA stands for branched chain amino acids and they are essential amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins that are used for muscle protein synthesis. When you workout, the body’s muscle fibers are torn and damaged. BCAAs are essential in order for optimal recovery and repair of your muscles. BCAAs prevent this muscle break down while contributing to the growth and maintenance of lean muscle mass. Simply add to water and shake it up. It’s best to drink BCAAs right before, during, or even after your workouts. Sometimes I even drink them on days I don’t work out because let’s be honest, plain old water gets boring. Shop BCAAs.
My Suggested Flavors: Peach Lemonade, Peach Rings, Fruit Punch
Feeling sluggish and need an extra energy boost? Try The Pre-Workout--I promise it’ll get you pumped up and ready to smash your workout. A huge complaint about any pre-workout is that they give you jitters because of the caffeine content. For this reason, I found that taking only ⅓ - ½ scoop at a time is best to avoid the jittery feeling. But wow does this stuff ever work! It enhances energy, focus, and performance by increasing your alertness and improving concentration, all while reducing fatigue. Simply mix with a desired amount of water right before your workout or, like me, drink it during your first few exercises. Shop Pre-Workout.
My Suggested Flavors: Blue Raspberry, Cola (Cola tastes just like a diet coke, only without the carbonation)
These are zero-calorie flavorings that’ll transform your food. I’ve tried nearly every flavor and they’re all phenomenal. Add a few drops to your yogurt, oatmeal, protein shakes, smoothies, coffee drinks, etc. for some guilt-free sweetness. Shop FlavDrops.
Powdered Peanut Butter.
We all know that peanut butter is a good source of healthy fat, but what if you want the taste of peanut butter, but without all the calories and fat? Powdered peanut butter is the perfect solution. Add to smoothies, baked goods, or oats--the opportunities are endless. One tablespoon of actual peanut butter yields 95 calories (8g fat), while one tablespoon of Myprotein powdered peanut butter yields 25 calories (1g fat).
