Beware that this isn't the same as Promax made by the same company. This is their less premium range which consists of inferior proteins, more carbs and more sugar.

There's still 14g of sugar in the lean version, per serving. It's a crazy amount for a "lean sports nutrition" product.

isn't this about 40% protein, in which case £10 for milkshake with a smidge of protein is pretty poor

No its less than 12g. See below Typical serving is 25g so in one serving there will be 0.8g of sugar

Kcals per 100g: 1544kcal.
Protein per 100g: 66.6g.
Carbs per 100g: 10g.
Sugars per 100g: 3.3g.

Not even 17g of protein per serving in the 'lean' shake- very poor.
#7
20g of protein per 50g of powder is quite low really, its not even whey protein, its just soya and powdered milk.

Be very careful twice I've had out of date protein from Argos

these are the carp ones not even worth £10

Best to get unflavoured Whey protein and add 100% cacao powder. Tastes great, much cheaper than USN and ON and none of the crap and chemicals they add to this

Drinking a protein shake every day is not going to make you "big" or "swole" or "lean"... The marketing around these things is out of control.

pretty poor article, one part that really annoyed me was "He has worked with the successful GB rowing team, some of whom he said do not take protein supplements despite consuming 6,000 calories a day"
Yes because they are likely getting 2.5 - 3x time more protein than their recommended intake anyway. A stupid comment

Yeah that's fair. You must admit though, there's a lot of people using these supplements that either A, do not need them, or B, have no idea on their macronutrient intake anyway.

I consume whey protein myself, so I'm not bashing whey at all. Just find it disgraceful how whey is held in front of fatties as some kind of "get buff, lose the lard" miracle cure.

Yep totally agree, always best to get your required amount 'properly' but why is usefull after workouts, or if your not going to get required amount naturally.

The new 'protein products' do annoy me tho, especially when you realise how they usually only have 1 or 2 more grams more than the 'non protein' product.
Shreddies are ridiculous for this

Nutritional advice has been wrong for the past 40+ years. It's no surprise to me that protein supplementation is marketed the way it is,and is in fact complete bulls**t.

https://authoritynutrition.com/6-graphs-the-war-on-fat-was-a-mistake/

https://www.forbes.com/sites/melaniehaiken/2013/07/02/lowfat-milk-may-not-be-as-healthy-as-we-thought-says-harvard-expert/#7afc4b0981a0

https://examine.com/nutrition/how-much-protein-do-i-need-every-day/

I can't find any significant reason to consume more than 0.8g / lb of protein per day. For example I'm 180lbs therefore my maximum consumption of protein should be 144 grams (0.8 * 180) and lower depending on my initial body composition. Since I'm not a body builder I function fine with a lower protein intake than 144 grams, I have never needed to supplement protein even when working out at the gym which I've stopped doing. At least now we have more information available, although the NHS still give the wrong nutritional advice on fats and carbohydrates though.

The modern world is essentially screwed up, we live longer due to medical advancement but we often suffer with quite severe debilitating diseases, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, dementia and mental health problems. Our technology is invasive, we're always switched on, work invades our lives with emails after work.

I'm launching a website this year where I'll be experimenting with my microbiome and researching data on the microbiome, I've been in to computing for 30+ years but I'm sick of the invasive technology and the pace of the technology of today, so time for a change :)

Me too, just got a refund on a USN protein product from Argos but only after I threatened to report them for selling out of date foodstuffs. No sign of a use by date on this either, there should be one.

Go to labdoor.com. They test all the popular makes. Stops everyone's knowledge posturing if you get the actual facts. Check out their multivitamin tests also - shows vast quantity differences from label.

So many posts on this thread make no sense at all! You need to take this to balance and supplement your diet. As in, balancing snacking, which is often heavier in carbs and/or much lower in protein overall. You should be actively working out (because, lets face it, why are you even here?), and you do need some carbs in your diet anyway.

Although yes, I agree with the criticisms, there are better on offer. But this is fine for the price. You just need to know what you're getting and how to balance it with what you're working with. It's not for any situation, and it's definitely not a simple drink to replace a meal for quick results with no effort required.

It looks like these ranges are returning to the Maximuscle branding, so you might find the old MaxiNutrition stuff down in price over a few places. If you're fan of their bars and what not, could be worth checking H&B and other places instore.
