The FitMiss Delight products are a lineup produced specifically with the needs of women by its parent company MusclePharm. Today we look at the FitMiss Delight protein powder which incorporates greens and superfoods for a slightly more holistic approach.
This product is mainly targeted towards weight loss, though also suits those also seeking to replace lost weight with lean muscle through working out. The “Delight” brand also includes a range of protein bars for treats and on-the-go cravings.
We tried the Vanilla Chai flavor and a scoop (23grams) contains 16grams of protein from 20grams of their protein matrix. Just 16 grams of protein from 20grams of protein ingredients is fairly inefficient, which suggests the majority of this protein matrix is actually lower quality whey concentrate. However, it does also include egg white albumin, micellar casein, whey isolate, and hydrolyzed whey.
Unusually for a protein source which is mainly concentrate, it’s actually quite low in fat with just 1.5 grams and it has just 3 grams of carbs. This is good too when you consider this supplement is intended for weight loss. It’s a pretty small serving size which is also more suitable usage for weight loss.
The next ingredient listed is SolaThin which is a patented form of protein isolate derived from potatoes. SolaThin delivers a protease inhibitor (Pl-2) that signals both the brain and the GI tract that the stomach is full. This is a nice addition which helps make the product suitable for meal replacement or between-meal use to avoid cravings.
The next addition is the “Greens & Superfoods” blend which includes an extensive list of ingredients to ensure you have a wide variety of micronutrients until your next meal. Having said that, it would have been nice to include some more information about the vitamin and mineral content this provides on the package.
Another useful addition is some digestive enzymes including Protease and Lactase which is especially helpful with the digestion of any Lactose content. Inulin has also been added which assists with bowel function as well as decreases the body’s ability to make certain kinds of fats. This is another potentially useful addition for those looking for weight loss.
Cellulose Gum and Soy Lecithin has been added as stabilizers and should also make the product more easily mixable. Sucralose (Splenda) and Acesulfame Potassium have been added as sweeteners.
Mix 1 scoop of FitMiss Delight with 8-12 fl. oz. of cold water. Vary the amount of water to achieve desired consistency and taste. To increase your protein intake per serving and achieve a delicious milkshake taste, use milk instead of water. Consume additional servings throughout the day to meet your daily protein requirements. Use in combination with whole food protein sources, a balanced diet, and exercise program.
This product follows a more holistic approach and is marketed towards women in particular. It contains a good protein matrix that should provide both rapid digesting protein, as well as slow-digesting protein to help prolong amino acid absorption.
We think this product should be particularly effective as a weight loss product, but not so effective for other purposes when compared with other products on the market. This is a clever product, and we like clever products. Its ingredients are well chosen and many of its greens & superfood additions do serve additional purposes for weight reduction.
We were pleasantly surprised by the taste of this product. The flavor was a mix of vanilla which was not too strong, along with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. While it took a bit to get this product to mix, its texture was smooth and worked well even with water which would probably be the preferred way to consume the product if you’re counting your calories.
While the taste of this product was good, it is worth mentioning that its mixability was not so great. It required some vigorous shaking to get it mixed in without clumps. We have found this also with similar products which contain superfood additions, as they don’t tend to mix well. This is especially the case with water.
This product is actually surprisingly well priced for what is a pretty clever product that has been well thought-out with weight loss in mind.
For a more holistic approach, this product likely represents the best value on the market, but its use other than for weight loss is probably better served by other products on the market.
This is a more unique product, in that it provides a lot of benefits towards weight loss goals along with a nice addition of the greens & superfoods. This product is actually great value and will do well to help curb food cravings where weight loss is your goal. If that is your goal, this product is an ideal choice to achieve assistance towards that aim. If you are happy with your current weight and just want to develop and maintain lean muscle, we would probably suggest there are better products that are more suitable for that goal. This product is probably best used in combination with a good healthy diet and some daily exercise to achieve your desired weight loss. We would suggest using this as an alternative to snacking between meals or to replace one meal per day.
