RSP Truefit Protein and Greens supplement

RSP Truefit Review

Produced by RSP, Truefit is a meal replacement formula that’s both a mixture of a super greens formula and a whey protein powder. Truefit is supposed to help the consumer reach every personal fitness goal they have, whether it be to lose weight, to have a boost of nutrition after working out, or to improve the dosage of daily nutrient intake.

The formula contains 17 potent ingredients, most of which are organic. The formula is also gluten-free, non-GMO, and the whey comes from grass-fed cows. Due to the fact it contains whey, this formula is obviously not suitable for vegans, unlike the majority of superfood formulas out on the market.

However, the brand probably isn’t too concerned about that considering Truefit is the number one bestselling product that they create.

Marketed by RSP as a formula you can use for meal replacements and praise as a great way to receive whole food nutrition, I’m really keen to take a closer look at this formula. Let’s take a look at my full RSP Truefit review below.

First Impression of RSP Truefit

My first impression of this formula is surprisingly positive seeing as it’s a super green and whey protein mash-up.

I have seen this before with Kylea’s brand – Total Living Drink Greens.

The initial thing that I like about the product is the fact it states straight away on the tub the amount of some ingredients. For example, it states, “25g grass-fed protein”. The fact that the brand is showing the consumer the amounts of ingredients makes it look transparent, which is always a good sign.

Everything about the brand, from the website to the tub of Truefit itself is clean, sleek, and simple. The only thing I would like to see more of is the information about the product’s ingredients and why they’re beneficial for the consumer – the brand appears to have started talking about the formula’s main ingredients but stopped without giving much detail.

Nonetheless, my first impression of the product is good and I’m eager to actually see the formula itself and figure out whether it actually works.

Background on RSP Nutrition

RSP Nutrition was founded in 2009 by Victor Davanzo, a former collegiate athlete. The brand was born out of Davanzo’s desire to bring safe, everyday wellness products to the market for both athletes and those searching for a more nutrient-rich life.

Although Truefit is the bestselling product across the entire brand, RSP produces an array of health and wellbeing products. Everything from amino acids and collagen to creatine and cold brew features on the brand’s site.

RSP Nutrition is based in Miami, but the brand’s products are available worldwide via independent retailers and the success of the brand can be seen by the fact companies such as Walmart and GNC stock its products.

RSP Truefit Ingredients

The recommended serving size of Truefit is a whopping 49g!

This is a huge dosage in comparison to other super greens formulas on the market, it’s important to remember that this is also a protein powder and is supposed to be consumed simply with water, to create a substantial shake.

The formula contains 17 separate ingredients, all of which exist within proprietary blends, apart from both the grass-fed whey protein and MCT oil. It’s such a shame that this formula contains proprietary blends as it showed a lot of promise. However, the product might not actually work, but we’ll take a look at that later.

Let’s take a look at the ingredients in RSP TrueFit.

  • All in-One Grass-Fed Protein (25g) – Grass-Fed Whey Protein Concentrate
  • All-in-one Fiber and Superfoods Blend (10g) – Prebiotic soluble fiber: VitaFiber – IMO, Sweet Potato Powder, VitaBerry’ fruit Blend (Organic Strawberry. Organic Raspberry. Organic Blueberry, Organic Tart Cherry. Organic Elderberry, Organic Cranberry), Vita Veggie Blend (Organic Broccoli, Organic Broccoli Sprouts, Organic Tomato, Organic Carrot, Organic Spinach, Organic Kale), Lactospore· bacillus Coagulans (1 Billion CFU).
  • MCT Oil Powder (1g)
  • Other Ingredients – Natural Flavors, Xanthan Gum, Salt, Sunflower Lecithin, Rebaudioside A (Stevia).

All of these ingredients are potent and will provide a consumer with health benefits when they are consumed in the correct doses. However, the fact that proprietary blends are used means that the ingredients are most likely not in high enough doses.

How does RSP Truefit Taste?

Truefit is produced in a multitude of flavors – Vanilla, Cinnamon Churro, Chocolate, Cold Brew Coffee, and of course, unflavored.

Regardless of which flavor you choose to purchase; the taste is pleasant and the formula mixes well. None of the flavors are too sweet, and even the unflavoured option doesn’t have an overpowering super greens taste.

Side Effects

There shouldn’t be any side effects when consuming this product. However, if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking any kind of medication you should check with your doctor before consumption. In addition, this product is not supposed to be taken by children, so keep out of reach.

Does RSP Truefit Work?

The main problem I have with this product is the fact that the majority of the ingredients within the formula are in proprietary blends. Proprietary blends are nowhere near as good as when the brand shows each amount of every ingredient separately, as the consumer can’t see how much of each ingredient they are consuming.

Within this formula, there’s 10g of a proprietary blend that includes all of the fruit and vegetables, and the probiotics. This is a reasonable serving size as I have seen greens powders contain as little as 4 grams up to the popular 12-gram serving size.

However, as products need to be listed per weighting, it’s very unlikely that the spinach and kale within this formula is a sufficient amount.

For example, if we look at the nutritional information, we can see there’s only 50mcg of Vitamin A, which is about 6% of the daily recommended dose. However, both spinach and kale are incredibly high in Vitamin A, making it hard to believe there’s a sufficient amount of either ingredient.

In addition, there’s 25g of whey protein but only 10g of all the fruit and vegetables, meaning that the majority of this mix is just whey protein. So, the protein might work, but it’s very unclear if the other ingredients in this formula will.

RSP Truefit Reviews

RSP Truefit can be found on Amazon and there are 3,717 reviews of the product which already proves how popular it is.

Overall the formula has a star rating of 4.4 stars out of 5.

Let’s take a look selection of the reviews:

I always take other peoples’ reviews with a grain of salt. But, everyone who gave this protein shake the highest rating was spot on! I had surgery and needed to make sure that I consumed enough protein each day to recover, so I bought this to make 3 shakes/day with milk. It was so tasty and it’s hard to believe it has fiber and probiotics, too! There are no artificial sweeteners (many products had sucralose), but it has its own natural sweetness. I started these meal replacements on the first day of my surgery and my bruises and incisions have healed so quickly over these past five days. It is really remarkable. I’m going to continue using this as a meal replacement for breakfast since I often skip breakfast and then end up snacking at work all day. What a great product!5-star review

The scoop size is huge. With scoop being so big you have to account for this when mixing. I typically have to pour half of a scoop and mix then add the other half. I used this product for a couple of months and I haven’t gotten the servings the package says. Even with the amount of powder that I have to use, I’m not getting filled up and hungry a couple of hours later. Overall a decent product but would like to have more value for my money.3-star review

The flavor is overwhelming, way too sweet for me. The container states that it contains 20 servings, but that is not correct. I did not use the full scoop as recommended, probably 1/8 of an inch off the top and still only got 17 scoops out of it. The other downside is that it does not take the hunger away for very long. For me maybe an hour, although I did like the ingredients. This product did not work for me and will not purchase again.1-star review

Money-Back Guarantee / Returns Policy

RSP has a 100% money-back guarantee on all of their products, as long as the issue is raised within 30 days of purchase.

Where to buy RSP Truefit?

You can buy Truefit from the RSP website, Amazon, other online retailers such as iHerb and from stores such as Walmart and GNC.

Is It Worth The Price?

You can either purchase Truefit in a 2lbs (20 servings) or 4lbs tub (40 servings).

For a 2lbs tub, the cost is $39.97, which works out at a cost per serving of $2.00. If you choose to subscribe you can save 10% which works out at $35.97 and a cost per serving of $1.80.

A 4lbs tub costs $64.97 on a one-time purchase, which works out at a cost per serving of $1.62. If you buy it with a subscription it costs $$58.47, which is a cost per serving of $1.46.

RSP offers to ship to the US only, and any orders over $100 qualify for free shipping.

This isn’t the cheapest product, nor is it the most expensive.

The fact that a lot of people in the reviews claim the tubs provided fewer servings than the brand claims are concerning, and therefore the real cost per serving could be a little more expensive.

My Verdict

Although RSP is clearly a well-renowned brand and the Truefit formula has a large customer base, I wouldn’t recommend this product.

What really lets the formula down is the proprietary blend and the substantial amount of protein in the formula in comparison to every other ingredient.

Although the brand has clearly tried to merge protein and super greens, I think creating two separate products is a better idea, because it seems like not all bases are actually being covered.

Overall I believe that you can find much better super greens formulas out there, and you can also find better standalone whey protein. I think the brand really did have the right idea, but the execution of the formula, for me, fell short.
