Re: MusclePharm Combat Protein Powder

Speaking of the "extra stuff" in protein (and now totally off topic), I'm experimenting with going lactose free for a bit to see if it affects some digestive system issues I've been having. Anybody have insight on which type or grade of protein works best for this - whey isolate? Do I have to go to one of those more expensive types?

Re: MusclePharm Combat Protein Powder

I think most lactose free people go for isolate.

I'm working towards completely eliminating all "shakes". Down to one 25g protein supplement a day if at all now. I find solid food feels best for me. Maybe worth a try if you can fit in enough real food in a day.

That's pretty much all I do too. It's convenient with my work/workout schedule. Mon/Wed I get home from work ~4:30, train 20 minutes away from 6-~8:30, then would like to go to bed at a decent hour because the alarm goes off ~5 the next morning. So I've been working on switching my "bigger" meal to lunchtime, having a little smaller dinner before workout, and a shake right after workout so I don't have to wait, or eat immediately before going to bed.

Long explanation for a relatively simple situation, and even more totally off topic, but that's my story. LOL.

Whey isolate works for me. I don't have lactose issues except for protein powders for the most part but I can EASILY tell when a powder isn't isolate. I tried a cheaper blend one time which of course said it had isolate in it but did not say how much. My stomach can confirm that it was a minority share...
