Advantages Bulk no frills goods which keeps it cheap, several times cheaper than say Maximuscle.
Disadvantages You could never know for certain if the goods are 100% pure.
My one only concern with Myprotein that I had was that the foods were at such low prices that I couldn't believe it could be true and that they were 100% what they said they were. But I have received brilliant service from Myprotein since, and they have cooperated very well to any inquiries that I have made, and this plus the fact that I have gained a lot of muscle has gone some way to confirming MP's integrity in my mind.
The big plus:
Myprotein is so very cheap: you can do things in bulk which means that it is a LOT cheaper than if you buy an equivalent product out of a high-street shop, and by the exact nutrients that you want.
To take an example, Cyclone, popular sport nutrition company Maximuscle's top selling product, costs a whopping £39.99 for a 1.2kg tub, a product which is designed for post-workout muscle replenishing. This product has a total of 600 grams of protein from whey and 420 grams of carbs in it. At Myprotein, you could by a kilogram of maltodextrin, a high insulin index carb, and a kilogram of whey protein (80%) together for just £13. If you do the number-crunching it emerges that, on this basis of total carbs and protein, you'd be getting 5 times more for your money at Myprotein compared to Maximuscle! 5 times more!
In Cyclone you'd get a few other ingredients like creatine and glutamine, but that's not to say that you can't get these from MP for millions of times cheaper as well!
And the fact that they put fat ingredients in this Cyclone blend defies belief that they can claim that such a product is cutting edge in science terms. Most people wanting to build muscle will know that this fat will decrease the body's insulin response to carbohydrates by slowing digestion, meaning that less anabolism will occur. Unbelievable!
So basically I think that MP is a very useful tool in getting the pure foods that you want at very low prices. And knowing what to get? There's plenty of information out there on the internet on good nutrition which, in conjunction with exercising hard, will help you gain muscle like nothing else. I personally am a 17 year old male and have been using MP for about 3 months and have put on about a stone of lean body mass and lost some fat as well! Can that say more?
