Question for Kitty...

Hi Kitty,

I know you recommend H&B products and was just wondering if I ve bought the right thing, I went into to H&B yesterday for some Protien shake, The shelves where full of different types, I ended up getting a product called 90% protien powder, is this something you would use or recommend?

Thanks

Gemma

    sorry Gemma, not me that recommends H&B, apart from one fat burner they sell. I'd stick to the guys who sponsor MT for the whey powder and get unflavoured so you can add your own. I certainly do not rate H&B protein purely because of taste

    I don't add flavour to my whey and find it just tastes like funny milk and is quite palatable. It's the over sweetness of some of the flavourings that make me puke

    Hi, I buy the H&B Precision Engineered Whey Protein when it is on half price offer - which they do every 3 months or so. That tastes ok and has a reasonable nutritional profile - lo carb hig protein.

    It sounds like you have bought the 90% Soy Protein which does taste like cardboard and is nutritionally inferior to whey protein. There is nothing wrong with it but whey is generally considered a better form of protein.

    It also won't "put weight on" as long as you follow a balanced diet - meaning you are not eating more than you actually need. At the end of the day you put weight on by consuming more kcals than you burn, not necessarily by drinking certain types of food - although some foods do make it easier to overeat than others. Generally protein makes you feel fuller and can help control your appetite.

    I still don't think even at H&B sales prices they will be as cheap as the sponsors

    I got 2lbs (908g) for £9.99 last month - bought 3 tubs to keep me going for a while, it's back up to over £20 again now!

    I am a bit of a protein 'tart', buy it where ever it's on offer!

    Was using a free tub that came with a 6 month subscription to M&F, with a proper shaker too (yes was too mean to buy one), before that my gym had some EAS wheypro they were trying to get rid of.

    Hi GN,

    Just looked and your right it is the soya one, its the first time I ve had any form of shake, how many a day should I aim to have and also can you make it up and leave it in the fridge or will it go off? was thinkin about making it up and having one first thing in the morning, Also does mixing cottage cheese with beans take anything away from it being good?sorry for all the questions, I really am grateful for your help and advice,

    Gemma

    It will go very nasty if you make it up and leave it for a while, even in the fridge. Also make sure you clean your shaker properly, protein has a habit of going really bad!

    Use protein shakes to supplement your diet and boost your protein where/when real food isn't pleasant or convenient. A whey shake before or after training is perfect, or have one as a handy snack between meals. Take it to work dry in a shaker and add water from the tap to mix when required.
