Jillian Michaels Natural Whey Protein Powder Review
What You Should Know
The Jillian Michaels Natural Whey Protein Powder is sold at major retailers, but not on the official Jillian Michaels website. Protein is important to weight loss because it tends to curb appetite and supply healthy, lean calories. Protein also supports muscle development and health, often a problem with a reduced calorie diet. We are unsure why Michaels does not sell the product on the official website, because it is one of her best products.

The ingredient list for Jillian Michaels Natural Whey Protein Powder may look overpowering, but it is a relatively simple shake mix. Whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate are the sources of protein. BCAA or branched chain amino acids are naturally occurring in protein, but it is also added to the formula. The remaining ingredients are flavorings, sweeteners and sources of fiber.
One serving of Jillian Michaels Natural Whey Protein Powder contains 100 calories, 2 grams fat, 7 grams carbohydrates, 2 grams fiber and 15 grams protein. The shake mix blends well in water and is available in chocolate and vanilla. The ingredient list is not packed with vitamins so this is a protein powder not a meal replacement shake. The powder sells for $10 for 14 ounces, slightly more expensive than other brands.
