Today we’re talking whey protein.
More specifically, I’ve got a MyProtein Impact whey review for you.
I was recently asked about this product by website member Lucy Jacobs, who had this to say:
I recently started using Myprotein Impact whey and my friends all tell me that it’s aimed at men who want to grow muscles. They say I should switch to the diet whey formula. I’ve come to love your harsh Russ Ratings, so if you could review this one and delve into this topic, that’d be awesome.”
It’s my pleasure.
So today I’ll be looking at this product and placing it on the dreaded Russ Rating score-o-meter.
Back To Basics
In a world of over-hyped supplements, which all claim to be the missing link to a great body, sometimes it pays to go back to basics.
Because I’ve found that people appreciate honesty.
And each time we look at the shelves of any supplement superstore, we are bombarded with claims of game-changing supplements.
Quite frankly, if it doesn’t feature a post-workout recovery system spliced with volcano lava and unicorn tears, it’s not trying hard enough.
So when a product just claims to do protein – because it’s protein – it inadvertently stands out like a sore thumb.
As is the case with MyProtein Impact whey, a product with so little hype and sales patter, that it actually does a bloody good job in exceeding the expectations you have of it when you try it for the first time.
MyProtein are no slouches.
They know that the best legal bodybuilding supplements today are the same as they were 25 years ago – whey, creatine and Omega-3’s.
And they know that we know.
MyProtein Impact Whey Review
By playing to their strengths, MyProtein have created a supplement which is suitable for just about anybody with weight training ambitions.
You won’t find any risky, unproven ingredients in a bid to stand out from the competition.
You won’t see a package plastered with florescent slogans proclaiming it’s going to “split your muscle cells wide open for new growth!”
And it pays off.
It’s refreshing to find a supplement that just does what it is built to do.
Take a look at the ingredients:
“Chocolate Mint Flavour: Whey Protein Concentrate (Milk) (91%), Emulsifier (Soy Lecithin), Cocoa Powder, Flavouring, Sweetener (Sucralose).”
And the nutrition values per serving:
Per serving (one scoop) you are getting:
- 21g protein
- 1.9g fat
- 1.3g carbohydrates
I mean, as someone who reviews and uses supplements, I can say that that’s as straightforward as it gets.
Job done. Boxes ticked. Move on.
Well that’s as refreshing as this awesome gif.
Who Should Use It?
Now let’s tackle the email above.
Give the nutritional values above, Myprotein Impact whey is perfect for anyone with fat loss goals.
That’s because it’ll allow you to smash your daily protein target without making too much of a dent on your carbohydrate or fat targets.
But should Lucy switch to a diet whey formula instead?
You see, as strange as it sounds, diet whey formulas are usually much heavier on carbohydrate intake and less impactful when it comes to protein content.
And, sure, they often contain a range of fat burning ingredients – green tea extract, conjugated linoleic acid, flaxseed powder, acetyl l-carnitine – but they’re in such small doses you won’t notice anywhere near the full effects.
So no, continue doing what you are doing, and if you decide to use thermogenic agents just pick them up separately and use them at their scientifically recommended dosages, they’re cheap enough.
And there you have it.
So, in my MyProtein Impact Whey review how do I award this product on the Russ Ratings score-o-meter?
