What Whey Protein to choose?

Optimum Nutrition (ON) 100% Whey Gold Standard:

Product Overview

Gold Standard Whey has been on the market for a LONG time.

Throughout its reign it has gone through several label iterations, most recently changing from “100% Whey” to “Gold Standard 100% Whey”.

During this time, the product and Optimum Nutrition have remained one of the industry’s most respected brands, amassing a loyal legion of customers.

Looking at the nutritional profile of this product, you can begin to see why.

Gold Standard 100% Whey comprises three different forms of whey protein: whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate, and whey peptides.

It also contains amino acids (enzymes to help break down the protein), including three of the most valuable BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine), in addition to other goodies such as glutamine.  

Per scoop we’re looking at 24g of protein, 1g of fat, 3g carbs, and 120 calories.

This nutritional make-up makes it ideal for a protein injection between meals, before bed or as a post-workout fix.

Remember, Gold Standard 100% Whey is not a mass gainer or a a meal replacement.

It should be used to complement your meals and help you reach your required daily level of protein.


I opted to use Gold Standard 100% Whey after coming off a bulking cycle in order to tone up while maintaining muscle mass.

During my first month of using this supplement I had protein shakes first thing in the morning and after every workout.

Remarkably, despite increased cardio (I was running about 15 miles a week) and a lower daily calorie intake, I still managed to gain a few pounds of muscle mass.

This took me very much by surprise as I was definitely expecting to lose a little weight.

What’s more, recovery was fantastic.
