Going to the gym 7 days a week means that I need more protein in my diet. The doctor didn’t like me eating too much cheese, so I checked out Whey Protein products. The one I initially bought was Body Fortress Super Advanced Whey Protein in Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor.
The net weight of the container is 1.95 lb. (31.2 oz) (885 g). The cost at Super Walmart was $15.99.
As soon as I removed the lid, I could smell a rich chocolate flavor. As I am the only one using it, I dipped my wet finger into the powder, and tasted it. A good taste of chocolate, and a hint of nuts.
I do have a big blender, and also a tiny hand whisk. The first time I choose fat free/skimmed milk, and put 6 ounces in a glass. I then added one scoop of the Whey Protein powder. I used the small hand blender to mix it. Being ice cold, it tasted almost like a chocolate nut milkshake. When I got to the bottom of it, there were some tiny granules left.
I had an 8 ounce bottle, so for the past month I have been filling it two thirds of the way with my milk, using a funnel to pour the powder in. Putting the top on the bottle and shaking it. This works great.
Protein shakes can be used before, during, or after exercise. I usually have mine after an hour, or two of exercise.

I really think that I am doing my body good by getting protein whenever I workout. I love that it is creamy with my milk. You can use water, or any other form of liquid that you wish. I really look forward to having a Whey Protein shake, and I have never done that with protein bars.
At this price, and for the amount I get, I will not be changing the brand. I may well try another flavor, but don’t expect it to be any better.
