    Try Sunwarrior Protein. Its a brown rice protein that is the best in the world. It's also organic raw vegan protein with no fillers or anything artificial at all. Plus it works better than whey, has higher amino acid profile

    So what sellers of sunwarrior will not tell you is that all rice protein is fermented. All of it is technically raw, and all of it is better than whey.
    Sunwarrior tastes marginally better than the others, but not 20-30 dollars better.
    Just sayin.

    I say just try it for a month. I have used protein powders for 30 years and I have not found one better than SunWarrior, although the price does seem a bit high.

    I love Trueprotein.com. I make my own version of old school milk n egg protein powder. Last order I got some rice protein and gemma protein to try. It comes in a food grade plastic bag. So much more cheaper than buying a prepackaged product.

    Hey guys, any of you want to share more specifically what protein mixtures you're making? A lot of the options I'm not familiar with and I'm slowly reading up on all of them.

    I'd love to hear peoples opinions, specifically about what's listed inthe "Supplements" section. Is any of that stuff beneficial or should I just stick to straight protein? Trueprotein.com seems awesome, I'm just not sure where to begin.

    Also, what is a reputable site that I can trust to read up on everything listed on the Trueprotein website? I like to be informed about what I put inside. Thanks guys.

    I like Ori Hofmekler's product. I know they don't put crap in there because they don't always have the whey in stock. No artificial sweeteners, grass-fed, and not processed in extreme heat (which damages the benefits of whey to some extent due to the damaged building blocks of the important anti-oxidant "glutathione").

    I don't live off of whey so my 6 pound tubs last forever.

    Oh, and his product is now "Warrior Whey", if you're interested.

    I just started using a whey protein supplement for recovery myself. I had the same questions and found this very informative article by mc. Side note: Do yourself a favor and spend some time reading on her site, begin2dig.com.

    So, I signed up for a fairly cheap account at Consumer Lab, which has an article on this very subject, for which they lab tested whey protein powders from many companies to determine whether their list of ingredients are accurate. I ended up looking at EAS's and Optimum Nutrition's 100% whey protein powders. My final choice was Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard. It was cheaper, had far less cholesterol, and had an average of 4.5 stars from 600+ reviews on Amazon compared to EAS's 78 reviews.

    I used it for a couple weeks and I'll admit I don't notice any difference. Of course, it's probably way too soon to tell, and I'm a complete newb re: supplements. I mix one scoop with 8 ounces of soy chocolate milk and drink it immediately after my daily kettlebell practice. I actually like how it tastes but I do can sympathize with the complaints I've read about feeling bloated after drinking. I'm not sure my body just needs to acclimate to it, or if I should try a different kind of protein powder. Time will hopefully tell. I'm confident, though, with the quality of ON's product.

    Default I have been using NutraBio products for some time now and....

    anyone know of a good brand of Whey powder? I need to suplement my diet.
    comparing this product vs trueprotein, it appears Nutrabio has a bit of an edge. (less calories and fat/more protein), To be fair, I have not tasted Trueprotein products but Nutrabio dutch chocolate is extremely tasty imo.

    I would be interested in hearing other opinions if anyone else has tried it.

    I have included both of their profiles:

    True Protein | High Quality Nutrition and Protein Supplements

    Whey protein isolate powder at deep discount.

    I use whey powder shakes as a meal replacement. It's quick and easy to make a shake.

    Does it do anything magical that regular wholesome food does not?

    Not in my experience. But the convenience and cost effectiveness of whey makes it worthwhile.
