So, as most of you probably know back in 2010 I had gastric bypass surgery. Since then I have lost a total of 200lbs and regained about 70 of that (through three pregnancies) but that's no excuse. I have been trying to get back to my goal weight of 155lbs since January like 3rd. So far I have lost 21lbs in a little over two months. I have switched many things in my daily routine and including protein poweder has been one of those changes. I choose to mix a scoop of protein powder in with my coffee each morning instead of using milk and sugar and it works great.
I was offered a chance to try this new protein powder from "Lean 180" and figured why not. Now, I will say I do like the poweder BUT I prefer the powder I am currently using more and I will tell you why. First, please take a moment and check out my review video below for a little info on my experience then come back and read the rest of my review. :)
Ok, welcome back I hope that video was a little informative for you, I am not a big fan of making video reviews and I am sure you can tell. Ok, so...my beef with this product or the things I don't like are...
* The sample size was not adequate enough to provide a thorough test of the product and give feedback.
* There are only 16 grams of protein per serving (my current brand has 24 grams of protein
* There are natural and artificial flavors and ingredients
* Doesn't really help curb my appetite like my current brand
The things I liked about this product based on the small sample size I got...
* Blends well with a spoon
* No aftertaste
* Blends smoothly
* Available in 4 great flavors - I had the chocolate
Overall, I would say this is better than some other brands out there but to be honest if I compate this to my current brand...I pay $37 and some change for a 4lb tub compared to $49.99 for this normal sized bag...I will stick with my current brand I would have to give this a 3/5 star review.
If you want to try it yourself I recommend that for sure. You can pick your favorite flavor from their website. Lean 180
