Protein Shakes syn values
Ive been using protein shakes for the last few months, just for after my weight training. Ive checked on slimming worlds site and they come in at 5 or 7 1/2 dependant on which one i use. Do you think these should be syned or counted as free food?
The ones i currently use are Nutrisport 90+
per one scoop (26g)
of which sugars 1.25g
(of which saturates) 0.74g
And the other i use is gaspari nutrition myofusion
Per one scoop (39g)
(of which sat) 1g
Straight one syn for every 20 calories so 5 and 7.5 syns respectively, definitely not free food sorry
I thought as much i do always syn them anyway cheers

Yeah ive seen the PHD diet whey, but i think for the money i payed the Nutrisport was alot better value, only payed £40 for 5kg delivered and the Myofusion was only £27.95 delivered for 2.27kg which is an amazing price (they had the price wrong on the website haha) the Myofusion is great on the stomach, no bloating or anything that can be found with some proteins.

I just like the flavour of the PhD diet. It's lovely.
I have used it to break a very long term binge habit - by having a shake when I feel like a binge (initially once a day, but now rarely) the protein killed my appetite and the chocolate flavour helped psychologically. I've been binge free for more than 5 months now I think.
I always have the Belgium choc flavour, while husband uses the vanilla or strawberry flavours post-gym.
I have banana and vanilla (was going to use vanilla in a cake of some kind) and the myofusion choc chip cookie with little bits of choc in and tastes awesome. The banana tastes almost caramely to and yes it does help with cravings plus it gets to the muscles quick after weight training.
Can you put it in cake?
Sometimes we make shakes with some powder, muller light and hazelnut milk that's nice all shaken together.
I didnt think you could but i have read an artical in a mag called Train Hard, Fight Easy and they had a load of recipes for cookies and stuff using whey protein so i might give it ago. I used make my own protein bars with porridge honey peanut butter dried goji berries about 10 scoops of whey and just enough water to bind it together (no cooking required) and it would make 10 bars, cant remember the exact quantities of each apart from the whey but they tasted ace with choc whey like a snickers bar haha.
