DYMATIZE ELITE WHEY Review By Matt Canning
I have tried many different protein powders in the time that I spent working out, and lately I have made it a goal to try as many as I can get my hands on to see which offers the best in terms of flavours. Once I analyze a protein powder to ensure that it has the basic nutritional content I need covered, I look for a variety of other qualities such as mixability and taste as covered below. Personally, I would be perfectly ok to literally eat the protein powder off a spoon even if it tasted like cardboard, providing I knew I was getting the protein, vitamins, and calories I was looking for. But if the price is right, I can look into other qualities which make a protein powder pleasant to have. DYMATIZE ELITE WHEY was a protein that I found to be one of the best I've tried yet. Some other regular protein powders I have used in the past are MuscleTech NitroTech and a big winner in my opinion - Optimum 100% Whey. I tried Dymatize and found it to be as good as anything I have ever tried.
I have tried to flavours of Dymatize Elite Whey, both of which I found to my liking. I tried smooth banana and rich chocolate. Both were delicious and in addition to that, did not leave a bad aftertaste or have any other negative quality. I mostly drank the smooth banana flavour, since I would eat a banana or another piece of fruit with my protein shake and I found it matched well.
I consumed Dymatize Elite Whey in the following manners:
1. For the smooth banana flavour, I would eat a banana or another piece of fruit with my shake and I would mix the protein powder in a shaker bottle with milk or water. I would add one or two scoops of protein with the liquid by either putting it in the container before the liquid or after. As a general rule, it is a better idea to put the powder in the shaker after the liquid has been poured as it generally mixes better in this way. I would sometimes use more protein, but since there is only so much protein that your body can digest at one particular sitting, it is not necessary to consume too much. I would rather recommend splitting the protein up over multiple shakes over the course of the day if you wish to consume more protein.
2. For the rich chocolate flavour, I used the following ingredients to make a protein shake in a blender:
- Protein powder (varying quantities depending on size of shake desired).
- Milk (skim, 1%, or 2% depending on your preference. My preference is skim).
- A banana.
I found this shake recipe to be just about perfect and enjoyed eating it more than the shake mixed with milk alone and eaten with a banana. However, due to time constraints which generally cause people to consume protein powder supplements to begin with, I found myself more often than not, eating the plain shake with a banana. But if time was not an object, I would much prefer to prepare myself a shake in a blender as described above.
I had absolutely no problems at all digesting Dymatize Elite Whey in any manner at all. However, this may be something that I am simply not susceptible to because I can honestly say that I've never had any problems like this while I hear others complaining about similar issues all the time. Personally, I doubt if any protein powder will ever cause me to have these types of problems, but I will keep honest assessments on here no matter what - I will point out once again that this type of thing varies from person to person and what may not happen to me may happen to somebody else.
As I continue to state in all my reviews of protein powders, it is not possible to gauge the effectiveness of a protein supplement in the same manner that it is to gauge something that is meant to elicit a specific anabolic effect such as a creatine or NO product. Protein is nothing more than extra calories. What is most effective to me is the CONVENIENCE, which makes it easier for me to take in the calories I need for growth - Jay Cutler has said it is easier to drink calories than to eat them. I happen to agree.
What everyone interested in purchasing a protein powder should do is determine what type of diet they would like to be on, and then read through nutritional labels of various protein powders and include them if they wish. Other ways to get protein are food sources such as lean beef, chicken, fish, turkey, or tuna. Tuna is particularly convenient as well as being generally inexpensive, and my only concern with tuna is the mercury content, so be sure to research as much as possible and determine what you feel should be included in your diet and what shouldn't be. I am not going to try to get everyone to buy as many supplements as possible because I would rather give honest reviews and allow visitors to my website to make the final decision for themselves. I have to say that all in all, Dymatize Elite Whey definitely passes all the required tests that I wanted it to in terms of taste, mixability, and most of all - nutritional content! This is one protein that I definitely look forward to drinking without any problems and Dymatize has found a good formula that I hope to see around for some time yet. I look forward to trying the other flavours available, listed below:
It's a tough call since are some good flavours up there, but I think I am most interested in trying out either the berry or apple flavours. As of now, I have not tried an apple flavoured protein powder, so I might be interested in giving it a shot! One last point, is that the price of Dymatize Elite Whey is quite reasonable given what is a high end protein powder in terms of mixability and taste. Usually there are plenty of cheaper protein powders that have the requisite nutritional information (which to me is most important), but it is more rare to find ones which taste great and are easy to mix as well as being cheap and nutritious. Dymatize Elite Whey does well in all areas. A+
