    Not what I’d call a healthy option, January 14, 2014

    I ordered this because there are Herbalife “Clubs” popping up all over my area and I have stopped in a gotten drinks a few times, which I really enjoyed. I’m usually one to check into everything, not believing something is healthy just because the label says so. There was a club near me though that sold their recipe book, and there were a couple of shakes that I really liked that use this product, so I thought what the heck. It’s in line price-wise with other high quality protein powders, and I like the taste of the shakes, so I’ll buy the stuff to make them at home.

    Well, unfortunately I should have done more homework. In the past I have mostly used Jay Robb’s whey protein powders because they are, in my opinion, some of the best products available. I have read his book and love his philosophy on using some of the highest quality ingredients, including rBGH free milk, and his protein powder also tastes pretty darned good. I should have just made my smoothies using his product.

    The ingredients in this product are crap. They are NOT healthy at all. The first ingredient is soy protein – very controversial to begin with though a club owner explained that they only use the “best part of the soy.” Nowhere does it say (that I can see anyway) that the soy is non-GMO, so you also have that to deal with. The 2nd ingredient is non-dairy creamer. Seriously? I don’t even use that in my coffee – just organic half and half – because of all the crap that’s in it. Finally, after scrolling through several more filler ingredients, you get to sucralose (aka Splenda), another poison in my opinion.

    Unfortunately for me I didn’t read the label before opening the can, so there’s no returning it and now I have a $40 can of stuff I won’t use. Maybe I can sell it to someone at a discount that doesn’t care, but if you care about your health I’d definitely stay away from this stuff, and check out a more healthy option such as Jay Robb’s line which has ingredients you can understand,nothing artificial, and 25g of protein v the 15g in Herbalife’s “protein” option.

    This is the best tasting protein powder ever! I have tried numerous others …. This mixes well with fruit & tastes like a milkshake 🙂

    I liked it good taste, mix with the strawberry Herbalife formula 1, add real fruit like strawberries, blueberries and bananas
