    Lately I've been working out and lifting weights for strength and endurance purposes, rather than to try to look good (I play a sport, so I need to keep my strength up.) I do a mix of cardio and heavy lifting to try to gain strength while trying to get in better shape. I've been trying out different protein formulas, and I was wondering what you guys would suggest for me (I have been using Elite Gourmet but I've lately heard some ill things about Dymatize, so I was looking for something new.) What are some good protein powders out there?

    Myofusion or Isoflex.

    From my experience these shakes all suck:
    Gold Standard (Come at me haters).
    Anything from Six star is awful.
    That "organic shit" is terrible.

    Because you actually eat high protein foods and don't need to supplement????

    I didn't like any of the flavours I bought, feels strange going down, doesn't taste like what there labled as.

    Cookies and cream tastes like coffee imo...

    Absurd.

    You can't make a sandwich? for the rest of your day? It's even more absurd that you think you need that much protein you require a pshake. You're probably stationary most of your day if you're a freshman...

    therefore =

    "pshakes nice to have" = too lazy to make food, so I buy it in powder form. I am against this notion as laziness, this kind of laziness, is the first sign of shitty workouts, nutrition sleep and general dedication and progress.

    When a person has enough time to make 4 sandwiches a day or whatever, he has enough time to produce a satisfying, not a waste of time, kind of workout

    If your not buying from true nutrition, you are probably over paying.

    This'll probably do. Just select the flavours if you just want pure protein.

    I got just straight whey protein. Does that have everything a protein shake needs? like on the back of commercial stuff there is all the listings of ammio acids and such. Does this have that or no?

    Whey has a large profile of amino acids.

    Ah thanks. that is good to know.

    Also, from True nutrition it says it is like what? 85% whey protein? what is a good amount to add to a shake after a work out? Currently the stuff i buy says 2 full scoops to hit "100% daily values based off 2000 calorie diet." any advice?

    Ah wtf, FPAndroid destroyed my paragraph.


    Basically, 2 after is probably fine, but you still may not be getting enough protein from meals. The recommendation for prot. in the avg diet is far too low (imo) for those who workout.

    Figure out how much prot you get in a day, and aim for over 1g/lbs of body weight. Ideally, for building muscle, aim for up to 1.5g/lbs if you can manage it.



    I think what I sad is correct, but I'd wait to see what the others say

    the cheapest whey they have is prob the best. but you can be a man and actually eat food and swallow creatine and get swole

    Im with you all the way on that organic garbage, But aside from their protein mixes, I've found six star has some products that work fine. Personally I use their creatine and pre workout powder and it works great.

    Edited:

    What's wrong with Gold Standard?
    Just the fact it works about as well as eating fast food after your workout.
