Designer Whey Sustained Energy review and a BIG #giveaway

I am not a morning person. I do not like breakfast, I hit snooze 10 times in the morning. I am grumpy and even if you are able to get me out for a morning run, I will be snarky towards you until the runners high kicks in. I generally drink protein shakes for breakfast unless I have "moment" and go for a egg white omelet with garlic, mushrooms and spinach. I am boring and predictable in the mornings, what can I say.

On the mornings that I juice or drink protein shakes, I find myself double fisting, well before the hours of 5pm. In my morning blur, I generally lose one cup, namely my coffee. Not cool. 
When I was asked to try out Designer Whey Sustained Energy, I jumped on the chance. I am already a huge fan of Designer Whey and couldn't wait to get the box in the mail. Upon opening the box, the first thing I saw was a stunning slim Britney Spears on the cover of Shape. You go girl! Although I did find it kinda funny she still has a belly ring (I got rid of mine in 2005), the girls still got it.
I was very excited to see Designer Whey in Junes issue of Shape. They stated they are a protein for a different kind of sport: Life. One scoop of 100 calorie (YAY low Cal!) Designer Whey Sustained Energy offers a blend of fast absorbing whey protein and slow absorbing soy protein to provide balanced and sustained energy during your busy day. Learn more at
With my crazy life and unpredictable grumpy mornings, I was beyond excited to try out Designer Whey Sustained Energy. I first tried out the Vanilla Bean with milk. To be honest, it was not my favorite. I quickly decided it would be a perfect addition to my morning smoothies. Speaking of smoothies, the other flavor I was provided was Chocolate Velvet - I generally use chocolate protein powder in smoothies and I decided to make a chocolate peanut butter and it was perfect.
It was simple - I used one scoop of Designer Whey Sustained Energy Chocolate Velvet, 1/2 cup of Soy Milk, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, a big scoop of non fat greek yogurt a few ice cubes. It turned out perfectly creamy and perfect. 
So I mentioned Contest. I have a HUGE one! I am giving away SIX canisters of Designer Whey Sustained Energy to six readers! You can choose between the vanilla bean and he chocolate velvet.

Designer Whey provided me with product for this review. My opinions are my own. 


  1. Breakfast is my favorite meal but I am a morning person. Eggs, yogurt, protein pancakes are my favorites

    1. I go to bed every night hoping I will be a morning person when I wake up but that never happens! I even made myself an omelet this morning and ate one bite of it. I so wish I was a morning person!
