OptiPro offers a unique blend of whey and soy protein powders for use before working out, after working out or as a meal replacement shake. Some of the ingredients in each shake will differ slightly depending on the powder flavor. OptiPro S and OptiPro M both have less than 130 calories per scoop. The majority of these calories come from the high protein content. These two varieties of OptiPro would fit nicely into any reduced calorie diet.
OptiPro APS, however, contains 529 calories per four scoop serving. This is far too many calories for the dieter who wants to lose weight. We believe this shake would be better suited for an athlete trying to quickly replenish calories after a workout or competition.
None of the ingredient lists offer herbal support for fat loss or metabolism. The basic ingredients in each are protein, vitamins and minerals. OptiPro M and S sell for about $35 per container. OptiPro APS was not available for sale on the official website and we could not find the powder for sale elsewhere online.
- Protein can help reduce hunger between meals.
- One scoop of OptiPro M and OptiPro S contains less than 135 calories.
- Protein alone will not increase fat burn.
- No ingredients in OptiPro will increase metabolism.
- Shakes can leave the dieter hungry in a short time.
OptiPro is just another protein shake that claims to help people lose weight the natural way. The ingredients are basic whey and soy proteins and nothing more. Dieters will have more luck losing weight with a proven fat burner.
