Buy “Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein Powder, Double Rich Chocolate, 5 Pound Health & Personal Care” Online
I’ve done a lot of homework on different protein supplements, and found that ON is one of the best out there. I have attached the lab results of their label claims vs. actual ingredient, and it is more accurate than its peers. Beyond that, this is one of the best tasting low carb/fat protein shakes out there. I dont find it too sweet at all and I can handle taking it every day for weeks and weeks without getting bored of the flavor. One thing I do know about flavors is that opinion highly varies between people, but you will find a ON gold standard whey that you love. Rocky Road/ Extreme milk chocolate/ Chocolate/ Double rich are all just chocolate variants, so start off buying a small container until you find the one you like the most!I start my workouts off with a serving of Alpha Gx7 Pre-workout – Watermelon Flavor when i am on the way to the gym, approx. 15-20 mins before my workout. I bring a bag full of ON gold standard whey with me to the gym so when im finished my workout, I can immediately get a hit of protein to begin the process of muscle building as soon as possible!DO NOT believe someone when they say "x flavor is the best!" and then go off and buy the 5lb tub and have to choke down something you hate. Test it out for yourself!I would also like to note I am a normal guy, not a crazy fitness freak, so my suggestions are really for anybody to follow! If anybody is wondering ive just followed stronglifts 5×5. Check it out!

Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein Powder, Double Rich Chocolate, 5 Pound Review
I have used several different kinds of protein for years. I have tried lots, and generally try them once and throw them out, because they are usually so sweet they are disgusting. I tried this one, the Double Rich Chocolate flavor, and I was immediately very happy. I do free weights followed by 60-90 minutes of high resistance exercise bike. If I do not take protein, I tend to need at least a full day recovery, and often will end up using light resistance on the third day. The protein lets me go light on day 2 and back to full resistance on day 3. Thanks all well and good, but I was running low on Protein. I bought the GNC Blue Bottle SEI chocolate and vanilla YEARS ago. I had to throw away the chocolate because they changed recipes and the Chocolate got so sweet it almost tasted like Caramel, but even sweeter. Disgusting. I threw all of it out and continued with the Vanilla, stocking up. I since have tried several iterations of their newer products locally, but they are so ridiculously sweet that I can’t stand the taste. They don’t put sugar in it, they put splenda or sucralose, and they overdose it to the point that it all tastes like simple syrup with a touch of chocolate/vanilla/peanut butter candy in it. This stuff tastes GREAT. I got the Double Rich Chocolate and it tastes like a good cocoa based milkshake (I do mix with Whole Milk, not water, to get the fat). If you like eating rock candy, go buy the GNC crap. If you like your hot chocolate dark and rich, you can’t mix. I plan on buying several of the Double Rich and trying a couple of other flavors. -Read Reviews-
This is a review for the Rocky Road flavor. I ordered a 2-lb tub in case I didn’t like it and didn’t want to end up stuck with a 5-lb tub. Now I wish I had bought the 5-lb tub! I am basically a gym rat, I lift weights and do cardio about 4 days a week and I find it hard to eat 150+ grams of protein per day, so I supplement with whey. I’ve tried a variety of brands and a gym friend mentioned this one to me. I’m a huge choco-holic and usually go for the chocolate protein anyway, but this Rocky Road is great! I can actually taste marshmallows in there and the chocolate flavor is fantastic. The texture is nice, creamy, and thick, but not super frothy like some whey protein I’ve had. I made a shake with this today and used unsweetened almond milk and threw in some Arctic Zero in chocolate flavor. .. this was the BEST chocolate milk shake, and I almost felt guilty, like it was desert rather than a protein shake! Anyway, 5 stars for the product; I think I’ve found my new favorite protein!
