Greens V Muscle Milk Protein Drinks…

As part of my daily exercise routine, I finish it with a refreshing protein drink. It provides an extra boost and is very welcoming. With all the protein drinks on the market, I thought it would be interesting to find out what the difference is.

In previous posts, I mentioned how Tony Robbins suggests consuming greens drinks as part of your daily exercise regime. So, I have been doing that for the past five months. What is nice about greens drinks is the fact the product lasts a long time. It only takes one teaspoon per cup of beverage (in my case it is water). That is an added benefit, in my opinion. Anything that helps stretch the dollar is worth noticing.

While in the shopping mall a couple of weeks ago, I went into a nutritional store and looked around. I saw something called Muscle Milk. There were other powdered protein drinks available, but Muscle Milk was the only one offering samples. I wanted a sample since there was no way I was going to fork out the price for one of those products without sampling it. Those drinks are not cheap. 😦

Anyways, I was given three scoopfuls. One scoopful is required for one drink. When I was getting the sample, another customer reaffirmed the effectiveness of the product. Her and her husband loved it. She did find the recommended amount too sweet, however. She suggested adding extra water or not using so much powder. I appreciated that insight.

The taste of Muscle Milk, chocolate variety, is delicious. It tastes like a chocolate malt. However, taste is about all it has going for it. I did not like how I felt after drinking it. I did not feel refreshed or energized. I felt weighted down. It felt like my system was taking time processing it. I also felt like I was ingesting unnatural ingredients. One of the reasons I have never bought one of those protein drinks is because the list of ingredients takes forever and a day to read. I do not like that.

When I drink greens drinks, as mentioned, I feel great. There is no feeling of being weighted down. My system feels light and energized. Plus, the drink is like drinking water with a little kick. The list of ingredients can be read in a couple of seconds and they are easy to understand. (There are only a few naturally occurring ingredients).

In case you’re wondering…no I am not getting paid to write this product comparison. I thought about writing this post the other day when I drank the Muscle Milk.

Hope this helps someone else going through the same thing.

Find interesting? Kindly share…

  1. One guy at work buys those muscle milks in a single serving and it’s almost four dollars! You can buy a gallon of mile for less……I’m not sure what the reason is for his purchase, he’s not into health or exercise!

    So, what are “greens drinks”? I drink water almost always…..I have the occasional diet coke because I LOVE them…..but I’m not really supposed to have the caffeine……so sad.

    Mike and I are trying to get back into walking now that the summer heat is gone…..and I would like to check into a fitness center where we could both go…..but Mike says he wants to wait awhile…..

  2. Would you should chance to know if it’s’s safe to lift weights while making an attempt to lose weight? I have made it my new years resolution so I am trying to stick with it.

    • Hi Francina,
      I would recommend consulting with your medical care provider for that answer. I’m not qualified to say what is safe for you, nor do I dispense medical advice.
      Trust your instincts.
