Designer Whey Sustained Energy – Um, Yeah! I was so excited to received this box in the mail in return for a review from Designer Whey through a FitFluential, LLC Campaign. I am providing you information that is fact from the website but opinions and my personal experience are just that – MINE.
I was so lucky to receive this box on my doorstep! Vanilla Bean and Chocolate Velvet – HEAVEN! I have a love of protein powders in general but this one is just a tad bit different! It is called Sustained Energy.

I tried this product a couple different ways. I first and foremost had this for an afternoon snack at work so that I would hopefully still be ready and able to make it through my workout later that day. This happened around 1 or 2 pm (usually) and I was able to make it through my workout – and I didn’t find myself as ravished for dinner afterwards. I felt like I was able to eat a normal portion and not feel like I was dying from lack of energy. This is a plus because I usually only have so much time to eat anyways with baby, and household chores, and homework to do after work for the VERY next day *sigh*.
After about a week of using this and really noticing a difference – I decided to up my game. There are some mornings that I struggle after my morning workout due to the baby not sleeping well or staying up to get things done. In walks my bright idea to add it to my oatmeal. I hate the taste of oatmeal but know it is good for me. I tend to add protein powder to it for flavor and some extra ump. Why not give it some added energy? This allowed me to power through my morning a better. I saw more results after doing this a couple days in a row for sure. It was nice to feel kind of refreshed and ready for the next part of my morning which entailed getting three girls ready for school and myself to work – AH!
I definitely think this product has found a great market for busy people like me who need help with the busy days that life brings.
Want to give a try you say? Let me know what flavor you would try – Vanilla Bean or Chocolate Velvet!
