I’ve been using various different GNC protein powders for the past couple of months and the Soy Protein 95 has quickly become one of my favorites.
There are 130 calories per serving which makes it a lower calorie option post run or in between meals. It isn’t supposed to be used for weight reduction, so while I found it to be a good snack in between meals, it is not meant to replace a meal.
There is no wheat, gluten, or dairy in the powder. It is also yeast free for those of you who have a problem with yeast.
I found it to be easier to mix than other protein powders, though I still think the best method for mixing is shaking it in a container or using a blender. I REALLY enjoyed turning this into a dessert *milk shake* by mixing it with Vanilla Soy Milk.
Each serving contains 25 grams of protein.
The container retails for $19.99 and has 12 scoops making each scoop roughly $1.66. If you are looking for a reasonably priced protein powder this is a good option.
I can’t stress enough the difference I have seen between drinking a protein shake post run and not drinking one. I recover faster and am ready for my next workout. This morning I decided to start unpacking immediately post run instead of worrying about my refueling. As a result I’ve been sluggish all day and HIGHLY doubt I will be motivated to go for run #2.
What is your experience with protein shakes? Do you think they make a difference? Have you tried any of the GNC protein powders?
