Get that protein! A Designer Whey review

While studying for the CPT exam, I’ve learned more about how to structure my eating so that I get the most out of the timing and assortment with the food I eat. My goals are to eat a balance of healthy fats (nuts, fish, etc.) and complex carbs (i.e. veggies galore) for energy along with lean and healthy proteins to help my muscles recover from workouts. With protein intake, sometimes grabbing chicken breast or egg whites just isn’t convenient for any of us. Instead, we rely on quick protein sources that can work just the same but that also taste delicious!
 
Designer Whey is a company that provides me that very luxury & I was excited to have the opportunity to try them out!
 
With an assortment of products, they provide protein that helps individuals succeed with their fitness goals while enjoying a delicious variety of options for protein choices!
 
Our values are equally resolute. We only work with quality, scientifically proven ingredients, ensuring each Designer Whey product delivers the optimal blend of proteins, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. It’s this unique formula that helps to reduce appetite, build lean muscle, improve body composition, enhance the benefits of exercise, aid in recovery, and much more.
 
Verdict: Awesome Protein for stellar muscle recovery!
 
I’d sum up Designer Whey with these words:
* Convenience
*Tasty
* Variety
* Nutritious

 
I made an awesome shake (creamsicle!) from fresh orange juice, almond milk, and White Chocolate Designer Whey powder! Easy! I love how the powder is super dissolvable and doesn’t clump at all!
 

From shakes to bars and weight loss to recovery, Designer Whey offers many options that fit all individual needs and goals!
 

 
ready-to-drink deliciousness! (Hubs and I fought over this one πŸ˜‰
 
 
Their Protein-2-Go tastes great and at 50 calories with 10 grams of protein, is perfect for a post-workout refreshment!
 
 
They are also super-affordable & have a wide variety of flavors for any taste palette!

So, why is Protein important?
 
In a nutshell: You get your energy from two sources: carbs and fat. When you workout, you tear your muscles and alter their structure, requiring them to have protein as fuel to recover and be ready to do more work at the next workout! For our muscle, joint, and bone cells to grow and repair, we need protein!Since I’m not a certified CPT just yet, I’ll note this source πŸ˜‰

What ways do you incorporate protein into your diet?
If protein was White Chocolate flavored, would you eat it up?

    I would do white chocolate. Normally I do chocolate. I like Muscle Milk, never tried Designer Whey. 18 g of protein is good.

    I love my DW! I used the whilte chocoalte to make a microwave carrot cake and a “cream” for my strawberries. It’s all gone now, so I’m on to the french vanilla… but that white chocolate was my fav (and I don’t even LIKE white choc!).

    I’m not a big white chocolate fan, but I’d be willing to give the protein mix a try! I usually spring for vanilaa since I use it in baking (pancakes, muffins, etc) pretty frequently. I haven’t tried DW, but I should once I’m out of my 10lb bag I’m using right now!

    Great review Kat! Wishing I could use these products but my body just does not like Milk ;( I get my protein the old school way, eggs, meat, avocado, etc still as I have yet to find a suppliment that is allergy free for me.

      see I’m usually very sensitive to lactose, and was great with their products! I’ve also heard Neocell is lactose free πŸ™‚

    If protein was white chocolate flavored I wouldn’t have to worry about not having enough protein in my diet. I’d have to worry about having too much. Even your creamsicle shake made me want gobble it all up.

    I love learning about which kind of protein and protein powders different athletes use. This looks like a good one (I like that you said it doesn’t clump). I usually try to eat protein with every meal in the form of nuts, fish, chicken or eggs. I’d rather chocolate flavored than white-chocolate flavored!

    I use Aria Vanilla – it is a division of Designer Whey. I am definitely interested in trying more of the DW product line.

    Great Post Kat! I have used Designer Whey since the late 90s since they were one of the original whey protein powders available. It has been nice to see them continue to thrive and survive through the health and fitness boom. White Chocolate? Mix it with a little almond butter and some blueberries and yeah, I’d be all over it.
