So I’m pretty sure this guy made a deal with the devil, and I am shamelessly reaping the benefits of this infernal pact.
I’ve been having issues with consuming whey protein powders, even brands that I have used successfully in the past, such as Optimum Nutrition’s Hydro Whey, and a quick google search reveals that a lot of people seem to have the same issue. The main difference it seems is while I decided to stop consuming things that make me feel like I accidentally swallowed shards of glass, or something dead-set on stabbing its way out of my stomach, a lot of people decide to “suck it up” and deal with the bloating and stomach pains. And the curling into the fetal position and wishing to die. Or maybe that’s just me.
Anyway, I guess I should also note I have been avoiding artificial sweeteners and while searching the internet I found this guy’s line of products. No aspartame, no sucralose, low carb (which is also something I aim for), sweetened with stevia and erythitol- sounds like a pretty good deal to me.
I bought a bag of the vanilla flavor from GNC and took it home. I was a little leery because vanilla flavored protein powders can have a pretty off-putting smell and taste, but I figured I could put enough instant coffee in the mix to make it palatable.
Guys, I opened the bag and no joke, it smelled like cake mix.
I’ve used it two or three times so far, and in addition to tasting a lot better than a lot of other brands that I have tried, most importantly, there have been no issues that I had previously which is awesome.
And so the next logical conclusion is this guy has made a deal with some sort of demon. I’m hoping it was a relatively small price to pay in return, like constantly losing his left sock, or having a flock of birds poop on his car every Tuesday.
Anyway, if you are shopping around for a protein powder and you’re down with trying egg protein, I would say give this one a try.

Is it priced fair?
more or less, I think. I did another search and another product I found that offers the same ingredients (egg protein, stevia) was by Healthy and Fit, for about the same price in store- online there was some deal going on through vitamin shop
A lot of popular and “technologically-advanced” protein powders cause a litany of digestive problems…. you’re definitely not alone in that one. Have you ever tried a whey that is based on whey protein concentrate? Whey technologies have gone crazy with “faster-absorbing” being the status quo with little to no regard to quality and purity. A couple of good brands are Warrior Whey by Defense Nutrition (which I’ve personally used with great results) and one I’ve heard great things about, but haven’t experimented with myself is Upgraded Whey by Bulletproof. Both are whey concentrates derived from grass-fed/ pasture-raised cows, which means they are minimally-processed, chemical-free, sweetened with stevia, and free of artificial or synthetic additives; therefore, you may not experience the same gastrointestinal issues as with other whey types (isolates and hyrolysates, which is what ON’s Hydro-Whey is). Finding a good whey concentrate may be worth a shot as whey does have many immuno-supportive, muscular nourishing, and other benefits that other protein powders do not, which is ideal for martial artists and athletes. But if the egg works for you, who am I to change your mind?
How does the egg protein seem to effect your performance (do you notice increase in any performance parameters, i.e., focus, muscular endurance, mood, etc.)?
