Is cholesterol content in this product too much? Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard, Double Rich Chocolate, 5 Pound Is cholesterol content (10% per scoop) in this product too much? Oct 26, 2011
I'm sorry, but dietary cholesterol has virtually no affect on the bodies cholesterol levels, and modern science supports this. Like most (mis)information, this "dietary cholesterol bad" myth was probably instituted by a study sponsored by the cereal/grain companies or something back in the 70's or 80's. Just like the whole "fat is bad" fad that took off during the 80's when low/no-fat everything came out. What happened next? Add in the processed fructose (corn syrup). Why corn syrup? Because corn is/was subsidized the US Govt (our tax dollars) and they put a tariff on imported sugar cane, making corn syrup the de'facto sweetener in American processed food. And why did that "fat is bad" thing take off? Because companies used the absolute cheapest forms of fat (hydrogenated vegetable oils). And what's cheaper than hydrogenated fats and that can be flown into foods under the radar? Processed fructose.
If I were to make protein shakes with single serving size portions about 5 days/week, how long do you think a 2 lb container would last me? 5 lb? THX Jan 5, 2014
2lbs = 29 servings. Roughly, 5 days/week with a 4 week month is about 20 servings (excluding weekends). That leaves you with roughly 9 servings for the month left. I work out everyday but only take a shake after a workout. 2 lbs lasts me about a month. 5 lbs = 75 servings. For me, a 5 lb tub would easily be 2 months maybe 2.5. If you plan on staying with ON, it's more cost-effective to purchase the 5 lb tub depending on the vendor. Hope this helps.
I ordered the 2 pound container. I opened it and don't see a scoop and the powder only goes to about halfway up the container. Is this normal? Oct 18, 2013
they package by weight, so the containers are never full. and the scoop is usually at the bottom.

I am training for a marathon and do not want to bulk up, would this product work for me? May 26, 2014
Eating more protein will not make you bulk up. Eating, lifting heavy and resting will bulk you up. This is ideal for eating after your run. You should also eat some sugar (like tossing a handful of M&M's into the blender) to replenish your glycogen. Another good idea is to have some of their casein protein right before you go to bed. Whey is good first thing in the morning and after a workout (it is fast digesting) and casein is good before bed.
does it help with weight loss Jun 5, 2013
It is not a miracle worker by any means. However, it is difficult for me to get enough protein in my regular diet so this really helps, especially if you have a good workout regimen. After cleaning up my diet AND adding whey protein, i have lost about 5 pounds in the last month.
