Howdy, first time poster, I'm hoping you folks can help.

I'm living in Japan and looking to purchase a protein supplement, but for the most part I've to choose from Japanese companies, brands, etc. What should I be looking for when I buy the supplement? What are good figures for grams/calories/etc? Is there anything I should be looking out for?

Sorry if this info is elsewhere on the site, please help me to find it.

Thanks in advance!

Have a look at the Supplment thread for a "philosophical" overview.

Some people have good stuff to say about hemp protein powders. haven't tried it yet. Good option if your avoiding dairy.

Otherwise go for a reasonably priced whey with minimm additives and sweetners. I believe stevia has always been popular in Japan.

Not trying to be smart but grams and calories will depend on how much you use. 1 gm of protein is 4 kcal. Have a look at the Zone as a way to control and track your food intake.

Someone else here may know much more about the supplment market in Japan than me.
