Exclusive Protein Sale: Secret Coupon Inside!

  1. So 1 scoop whole is really roughly 40 g prot instead of the 25 as the label claims? Damn...been wasting prot for like a week, that ain't cool.

  2. Also if they can't get the scoop right how can we trust that the rest of the label is honest?

    NP. I weigh everything for this reason..lol That is a big discrepancy though. I mean if people are using a rounded scoop like they suggest on the container, they will go through the tub in about half the time.

    I mix all my protein in 1cup of pasteurized egg whites, so TBH I just want the xx amount from the powder.

  5. I have that same scale at home!!

  6. It may just be me, but this kind of thing pisses me off. Makes me want to contact them and bitch about how they are messing up my macros and my money. "Don't play with my money Smokey!!"

    Honestly, that is why I posted it. The discrepancy is quite big.

    It says there are 60 x 38g(2280g total) servings. At 60-62g servings, there is only 36-38 servings.

    How packed was the scoop that you weighed? Maybe shaking the tub in an attempt to "fluff it up" would help the scoop accuracy. I doubt it would make up the difference you're seeing though.

    No more packed than any other scoop of protein I've ever scooped. Heh.

    I just repeated it with chocolate after "fluffing" it and gently scooping and got 60g.

    I just used 2 scoops of MGN and weighed it to see what happened. 1 scoop is labeled at 29.7g and my scoop came out to 36 grams. I didn't do any "fluffing" or whatever tricks you guys might use. I just scooped it flat and poured it in.

    These next comparisons are just b/c I'm bored lol.

    MGN gives me 1.2x the labeled amounts per scoop based on this test.
    120 cal to 144 cal
    3g fat to 3.6g fat
    3g carbs to 3.6g carbs
    22g protein to 26.4g protein

    Ultimate Flurry gives me 1.6x the labeled amounts per scoop.
    170 cal to 272 cal
    5g fat to 8g fat
    6g carbs to 9.6g carbs
    25g protein to 40g protein

    That is a huge increase in calories and macros as far as Ultimate Flurry is concerned if you track them and are actually shooting for certain #'s. At least now I know that I need to weigh out my powder every time. Thanks Frank!!

    Seriously, you're gonna weigh out your protein every time now?. This isn't a stab at you or anything, but that's just anal as hell.

    It is pretty anal, but no denying the scoop discrepancy is pretty damn huge, especially when you factor in the fact that many people are going to take anywhere from 2-3 "servings" a day. You're looking at over 300 "extra" calories a day. Hardly an insignificant amount if someone is trying to cut or bulk.

  13. I always weigh protein for some reason..hah Think it is just force of habit. I just put my cup on the scale when I make a shake. It's really no extra effort. The cup is either going to be sitting on the counter or scale.

  14. Yeah I don't really see that adding a bunch of extra time even though I don't do it. I'm just glad you guys figured this one out. I usually take about 3 "servings" of protein powder a day and we are talking about an extra 2100 calories with this discrepancy in a week for me. That's a pretty huge amount to be figuring wrong. Especially knowing that I would eat "extra" thinking I was a bit low off my calories mark which makes it even more off.

    300 extra calories really isn't going to be that significant either way. Anyway if you've got 10 pounds of this stuff and are drinking it everyday I'm sure you'll adjust fine. In the grand scheme of things it is fairly insignificant. I weigh some stuff out, like pre-workouts I weigh out sometimes, but that is because of the strong stimulants included and if that's all messed up...Totally different story and outcome than if your protein powder is off by a few carbs or calories. Oh and I weigh all my food also, just not protein powder. I don't drink very much protein powder anyway. One-Two servings a day, but not everyday either. Usually only one serving to mix my creatine in post workout.


    Edited and such.

    I'm pretty anal about counting calories man. I'm going for certain ballpark numbers every day and something like this could really throw me off. I follow LG for the most part and have lower cal and higher cal days and like to be on point vs just hoping I get it right.

    I weigh everything pretty much already. I have a scale in my kitchen and a scale at my desk at work if you really wanna know how important I feel it is for me. If I add dextrose to a shake I weigh that 20g. I weigh my chicken, meat, vegetables, coconut oil, etc. I never just think "oh that looks about right". I can do that pretty well, but I'd like to be more precise.

    In the end the better control I have over the long term will yield me better results.

    I think 300 calories on a cut is pretty significant for someone who has specific plans to reach a goal.

    Especially if you are eating say 1500 calories on a low day.

    Macros aside, going through protein almost 40% quicker is crazy. Tbone, you are pretty frugal, you should understand that.lol

    Yes I understand why you guys are upset but I think this kind of thing is quite common with protein powders. Seriously I doubt any are exact with the measurements/weights of the powders. I might even venture to say that it may vary from batch to batch. Now I'm just waiting for one of you to weigh out the entire jug and see if it is exactly five pounds!.

    lol.. I won't go that far.

    And they are off, that is for sure, but I have never seen one even remotely close to this margin. It is clear they are using a scoop that is far too big.

    Good way to get people to buy more protein though..

  21. Besides I'd rather be ignorant about it, instead of weighing it out and making myself crazy about it. Like they say, ignorance is bliss.

  22. What flavors are you talking about?. Maybe they don't count the cookie pieces in the cookie lovers, and just the powder...Did you separate the cookie pieces first before weighing out the protein?.

  23. Sorry...I just had to!

  24. Remember to always wash your hands guys!

    Of course I separated them. That goes without saying.
