This product was horrible. The taste was nasty and was hard to get it down. Would not recommend this to a friend, nor will I be buying this product again.

Great tasting protein, and it has a good amount of protein grams per serving than most other products, such as this brand is 60 grams of protein per 2 scoops instead of 50 grams per 2 scoops. The best priced protein in my area, and I love that. I buy Body Fortress because it is so cheap :D

Great Protein used it for a little over two months and gained 20 pounds. I would definitely suggest buying it, and for the price you can't beat it.

Best protein in the world because its so **** cheap! At the rate I go through protein this is perfect. Plus it works, if youre actually working out. Unlike half you that think itll do all the work for you. It doesnt work that way. Get out there, lift some heavy *** weights and drink some Body Fortress protein! Mixes well, tastes amazing and gives you 30grams of muscle building power!

f you're on a tight budget, or just don't see the need to spend more than $15-$20 for whichever protein you get, the Body Fortress brand is very solid. I also love how the BF protein mixes very easily (contains whey protein concentrate and isolate) and has plenty of aminos and other recovery agents (glycine, creatine monohydrate, taurine, theonine, L-glutamine, leucine, valine, isoleucine). Tastes pretty good, too (I like chocolate best). Very complete and well-rounded for your dollar.

This is the worst product on the face of this planet. DO NOT BUY THIS GARBAGE. I started using this a month ago (I bought two) and used it twice a day and worked out everyday. I have gain NOTHING my goal is extremely high (127 and I want to weight 190 (+63 lbs.)) and this product did not help at all. It was a waste of money for me, so I am giving you a fair warning.

Good product. All flavors mix well with water and I don't use a shaker. Vanilla is by far the best tasting followed by Choc PB. CnC & Chocolate lack a good taste in my opinion. I am moving on to a different brand that is also an isolate for less carbs & fat. Overall a good product.

I have taken other Whey products before and for how cheap this product is i have nothing but good things to say. The taste of the chocolate is excellent! no bitter after taste and it is really good if you mix in a tablespoon of peanut butter or even a scoop of rolled oats. I have also noticed nice muscle gain. It is a great meal replacement for me as well because i feel like i just ate a meal after drinking it. Would deffinetly reccommend it to anyone.

This is an okay whey protein to buy if you're just starting working out on a budget. It will be very chunky if you try to shake it to mix it, I use a hand blender and that mixes it better. With water it tastes horrible, you've got to use milk with this. Note that it's got high cholesterol and sugar contents, but don't expect a delicious milkshake out of this. I found the chocolate and strawberry flavors tolerable, but certainly nothing I was looking forward to drinking regularly. If you grind up a few real strawberries and blend it in with the strawberry flavor, it'll make it taste MUCH better. Also, you'll need to use more scoops than the label says because it's full of filler. So while it's cheap, you'll be using more of it, may as well buy a better quality whey protein (like Dymatize ISO100).

I've used this product for about 9 months now. I am getting real results for a very low price which is always worth it. There positives are as I said it's very cheap it's usually under $20. Next for protein I can't say the chocolate and strawberry flavors are very good. I only have a few issues with this product. First it can be hard to mix properly, there often is chunks if you use a shaker bottle and it takes a lot of shaking. Next it recommends using 8 oz of milk water etc but usually 10-14 oz of milk or whatever liquid you add this too. If you don't then it's nearly impossible to mix fully. The final issue is the vanilla. If you only are going to buy one of these DO NOT buy vanilla only. Vanilla is great for awhile, but if you only have that flavor it gets old very quickly and it can activate the gag reflex a little. When I only had vanilla I found myself plugging my nose chugging it just to get through it. If you have multiple flavors though like a vanilla, and chocolate or strawberry it's fine. That variety makes it much better tasting and you don't get sick of the flavor.

You pay for what you get! Definitely take this put an emphasis on this quote ESPECIALLY when you're getting protein supplements. I'm not saying it is cheaply made, however like most low priced protein supps (priced between the high 10's to low 30's), this is composed of two types of proteins: Whey protein isolate and whey protein isolate. You can look at other supps such as Cellucor's whey performance protein and you can see that they also use only these two types of protein (they also put extra things but thats not of the matter). Anyways! Overall, it may not be the best but for someone who is a low-budget college student such as myself, this is definitely a go-to protein supplement. I think that they're getting a bad rep because it's from Walmart! Always read the nutrition facts guys! Know what you're buying!

This is a product for people that cannot afford the priciest protein powders. Sometimes when the prices are low, the quality of the product can be the same, but not in this case. The taste is really good for a less than $20 product. Like many other powders, you can use it for self-serve shakes and in meals like protein pancakes for breakfast. This is a supplement and not a meal, so use it sparingly.

OK so I am at my local Wal-Mart about 3 months ago and decided I would pick some of this up. It had two things go for it; it was cheap and convenient. Here is my take. I know. I know. It's from Wal-Mart so it must be total crap made in China from low quality ingredients that won't work right? Ok maybe that is a little excessive but that was kind of my first thought, "really I am buying whey at Wal Mart" and from a brand I didn't recognize at the time? The 5 flavors (Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Cookies and Cream) are all around $15 per 2 Lb tub both online and at local retailers. This is about as cheap as you will find whey protein of any brand so the question was is it any good? For the most part the product is solid and with a few limitations.

When you open it the product smells fresh like a packet of hot chocolate. When mixed with water it's a little less sweet than the sugar free hot chocolate mixes you might find but I've found with 8 oz of water it is great. If you don't mind the extra calories mixing it with skim milk is down right delicious to me considering it is a whey protein shake and I am not one who loves everything. I would say Chocolate, Peanut Butter Chocolate and Cookies and Cream are my favorites. Strawberry and Vanilla aren't bad just not as real tasting as the others. CONSISTENCY: The product mixes well in both water and milk with about 5 seconds of shaking. There is no clumping or residual left at the bottom like some others I have had that were more expensive. RESULTS Added to this I was surprised how full I felt after drinking a scoop with water. It is meant as an appetite suppressant but it certainly could be used as a meal replacement for those looking to slide down the scale without wanting to hit the vending machine or pantry 30 minutes later. Over the past 3 months I used about 5 tubs of this product trying all of the flavors. I noticed solid gains in muscle during this time which I attribute partially to the product as I was not taking any other BCAA's or pre or post workout supplements. In the period my bench increased about 40 lbs from 185*8 to 225*8. I mix one glass before workout, one after and usually in the morning so a total of 3 on a normal workout day. The product does not upset my stomach like some others although I have noticed as I increased usage of the whey protein it did tend to give me the runs just a little. CONS As you may have noticed in the ingredient list above there is no breakout of the creatine monohydrate in the label. Although it is great the product has creatine this can be a little confusing to those either in the loading or maintenance phase and wanting to hold their daily amount steady. The nutritional facts do give what appear to be some hints though. Because creatine is listed between the Glycine and the Threonine it would seem each scoop has somewhere between 4.3g in the Glycine and 2.2g in the Threonine. Just remember to factor some estimate (I use 3 grams) for those monitoring their daily intake of creatine. I have gone to the company website and even sent an email asking for clarification and more details on the packaging label but thus far have not received a response. If and when I do I will update this post. The other very small concern is this is a protein blend and not a pure whey isolate and once again the company does not tell you how much of each is included in the "Blend". Body Fortress does make a Whey Protein Isolate for those who don't mind paying about $21 for the isolate. For most this may or may not be a concern. SUMMARY Everything considered I am really happy with this product and just ordered another 5 tubs. The price is right, the taste is great, it is convenient to buy and the product goes down well and helps cut down on DOMS.

I am a post college student on a tight budget. I have received great gains since purchasing almost the entire Body Fortress line. These supps are life savors. The protein taste great (esp Choc PB) are great protein source. I take 3/4 Scoop rather then two and this extends the duration of the bottle a great deal!

I have used this product over the last month and it has helped me drop 10lbs. It is not my favorite tasting protein powder but it is convenient, inexpensive, and it fills me up for 2-3 hours. Good for post workout since it is watery in texture and it provides results. I will work it in with other powders to my diet to help increase protein intake. Very good protein/carb/fat ratio!

This product is what i have been using for a while now. I love the chocolate peanut butter flavor. This is one of the best values around. I will continue to use this for my protein. I would recommend it to anyone.
