Biosynergy whey better

Taste: 3.5

Texture: 3.5

Effect: 4

Ease to consume: 3.5

Comments: All about lean muscle, this shake gives the highest dose of protein compared to any other variety at 26g per serving with zero fat and zero carbs. Therefore it is best suited to those looking to shift some fat, repair muscle or gain definition, it also comes in at just over 100 calories. Due to the zero fat or carb content however the blend contains a number of artificial flavourings and sweeteners. The taste and texture is also more similar to that of a juice rather than a typical shake.

My missus has started doing bananna smoothies in the mornings, which happen to coincide with my runs. Soya milk, frozen bananas, honey, ground almonds and cinamon. Not a clue if it's good or not but it tastes nice and cools me down!

Mmmmm!!!!!      Can I marry your wife.

Sounds great and I would say it is good for you.

I used to have a smoothy after a run, as I found before was to much before, thats unless you take the smoothy an hour or so before.

Feedback on this would be good.

Even a peanut butter sandwich works as a post-run snack. No need for all this synthesized protein gunk.
