Protein Powder Options

I'm a fan of whey protein powder! I am sponsored by BSN Supplements. Their award-winning protein powders are delicious!

Syntha-6 (200 calories/scoop, many exciting flavours, it's the tastiest)

Syntha-6 EDGE (150 calories/scoop, it's a "leaner" version of Syntha-6, less flavour options than Syntha-6)

Syntha-6 Isolate (140 calories/scoop, 50% casein, thicker consistency)

Isoburn (120 calories/scoop, ideal for dieters).

Please read my explanations below.


SYNTHA-6

SYNTHA-6 has a reputation for being the best-tasting protein powder on the market. Note that one scoop is 200 calories. You can compromise by using 3/4 of a scoop for ~150 calories.

For one scoop: 200 calories, 6g fat, 14g carbs, 22g protein.

Flavour recommendations: German Chocolate Cake, Salted Caramel.

Try this: blend Syntha-6 with unsweetened cashew milk and a frozen banana!

 


SYNTHA-6 EDGE

Syntha-6 EDGE has the same award-winning taste and texture as the original Syntha-6, except it has fewer calories, carbs and fat.

For one scoop: 150 calories, 3.5g fat, 6g carbs, 24g protein.

This is ideal for WOMEN or anyone who wants to lean out and keep their calories in check (without compromising taste). If you are dieting for fat loss, then anytime you see "Syntha-6" in one of my recipes, I recommend you use Syntha-6 Edge instead.

Flavour recommendations: Peanut Butter Cookie, Chocolate.

SYNTHA-6 ISOLATE

Syntha-6 Isolate is a blend of fast- (whey protein isolate) and slow-release (milk protein isolate) protein sources. It has less calories, more protein, less carbs, and less fat than the original Syntha-6, making it a good choice for a fat loss regime. Syntha-6 Isolate is an ideal option for an intermittent faster to take at the end of his or her eating window because it contains CASEIN. It's also a good option to take before bed if you have trouble falling asleep.

Because it contains CASEIN, this makes it very THICK. So if you like to make protein pudding, then Syntha-6 Isolate is for you! Some people are turned off by the thick texture of casein shakes. If you buy it and dislike the texture of the shake, you can always use it to make recipes.

For one scoop: 140 calories, 1.5g fat, 7g carbs, 25g protein.

Flavour recommendations:Chocolate Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter Cookie

 


ISOBURN

Isoburn is 100% whey protein isolate. It's called BSN's "fat-burning protein powder matrix" because it contains green coffee extract, L-carnitine and lepticore, which may support fat burning and healthy weight management. So if you are on a mission to get shredded, then Isoburn is for you.

For one scoop: 120 calories, 2g fat, 6g carbs, 20g protein.

It is available in 3 flavour options (chocolate, strawberry and vanilla).

If I were prepping for a competition or photo shoot, I'd use Isoburn. But since it's a leaner protein, it's not as tasty as the other higher calorie BSN protein powders.
