Protein Powder

What kind of protein powder is good to use? Has anyone ever purchased protein from trueprotein.com?

Re: Protein Powder

I use the GNC unflavored, sugar-free whey protein with light soy milk, ice, a half serving of women's ultra mega powder, and frozen strawberries or blueberries.

Re: Protein Powder

My personal favorites are MesoTech and Muscle Milk. MesoTech has a good recovery formula, and Muscle Milk has the best flavor.

Re: Protein Powder

Whey is probably the best protein powder after a workout becuase it is a fast digesting protein. I had Muscle Milk before and even though it tastes really good, it is not good for you right after a workout. I asked this guy who runs my high school and he said that Muscle Milk has too much fat in it for an immediate post workout meal. But two hours later it is good to have.

Nitrean from AtLarge Nutrition. Hands down, no question.

Re: Protein Powder

I have, and it's decent, but I still prefer the taste of Nitrean. AND Nitrean is a blend, so it's immediately a superior product. Can't really compare then two.

Re: Protein Powder

What does the Zone say about protein powders in regards to fast digesting or slow digesting? I may be wrong but it seems the Zone favours foods with slower release so would slower absorbing protein poweders be better for people following the zone?

Im asking mainly from the point of view of including protein powders in baked snacks to get the protein blocks up.

Cheers

Well right before saying you can't compare the two, you went and compared them.

it might be a more complete blend of proteins, but that makes it slower absorbing. So depending on the use it can be inferior also, especially post workout.
