what protein powder do you paleo eaters use?

I know whey may not be paleo in itself but I typically take a whey protein after my workout and somtimes before bed. I am currently using BSN Syntha-6. I like it because it has some casin in it. Other than the when, I am a total paleo eater (no dairy, no grains, no legumes). I noticed that almost all protein powders have "soy lectins" in them and I know those can't be very good for you.

Any insight would be appreciated!

umm... not to be a smart-***, but the "paleo" protein powder is called "meat."

Alright, I was trying to be a smart-***. but really... ALL protein powders go against the whole concept of the paleo diet.

you're not no dairy if you consume whey protein.

and it's probably soy lecithin, not lectin.

Find me a whey protein that isn't processed and I'll call it Paleo.

Whey can be "non dairy", but I wouldn't consider it paleo

Re: what protein powder do you paleo eaters use?

If looking for the extra protein and calories (i.e. trying to bulk up), go for it. Make sure you are eating plenty of real food first, then supplement if needed.

I like the natural whey from Optimum Nutrition, trying out Nitrean (protein blend) from At Large Nutrition right now.

Why do you want to take a protein supplement? What is your ehight and weight? What are your fitness goals?

No. Rice is a grain.

But, a giant steak is very Paleo...

This is actually a double no. Rice is neolithic food (not paleo) and it's processed to be turned into a protein powder (also, not paleo).

Really, anything that is "powdered" indicates that it has been processed and therefore, not paleo.
