    Default Whey Protein

    I am curious to what products you guys mainly use and when do you take it?

    What do you mean? Like what specific brand or what?

    I use the one that provides the most protein / dollar because we all know that when it comes to protein powders all this rage about "better quality" is just marketing ploys. Specifically I buy "Whey FX". I tend to mix it with my eggs and oat meal in the morning (1 cup of oats, 2 cups of water, , 2 eggs, microwave for 2 minutes, add 50g of some nice flavoured whey). Also I have some pre workout, and of course post workout. Sometimes in the evening before bed but I generally go with casein for that.

    Ori talks about whey isolate being bad (all heat-treated whey, really) in Unlock Your Muscle Gene.

    Unfortunately it seems that most/all protein powders utilize this method of delivery.

    Problem is that Ori really has no scientific backing on this statement.

    I used to take a protein bar from one of the major brands (Mrx or EAS or something; fairly tasty for what it was) that used isolate as the major source of protein (as I believe almost all of the major brands do) and saw good growth for my kettlebell efforts. But I lost a ton of weight (as well as working manual-labor throughout summer outside) during the process. Twenty pounds or so, which took me to my current-ish weight of 165 or so. I felt I was eating plenty, but I guess all the exertions ate up more calories than I thought. My biggest reason for not still taking (besides price) was that it seemed the concern for taking isolate was in the "long-run". I'd love to see un-biased reporting on whatever the overall results of using such items.

    Bars tend to be quite high priced indeed.

    Whey isolate is just whey. It's like drinking milk, sans the kasein. It's just protein. I'm not quite sure what kind of report you're looking for. Protein is good for you, and whey isolate is one of the cheapest sources available.

    I don't disagree with any of that, forth. At the time, I was evaluating the amount of dairy in my diet and could never recall locating info on the packages stating that the milk-product came from cows that were not treated with rBST and etc etc. Cheeses, as well, for the most part. As far as I remember from the book it was the heat process the milk goes through that makes it 'bad' in his light. [citation needed]

    I am adding more dairy back into my diet (cheese and plain yogurt and 2% milk) even though the proteins are 6x larger than human or something.

    I don't quite understand what "the proteins are 6x larger than human" means.

    Ori makes a lot of claims that lack scientific backing. This would not be the first one.

    I'm pretty lactose intolerant myself so I just avoid dairy. I consume a good amount of whey and caseine protein powder though. Also a bit of soy protein powder which is quite nice too.


    btw. if you are interested in protein in general I much recommend Lyle McDonalds "The Protein Book".

    I get most of my protein from meat, eggs and milk in my diet. About 80-110 grams from that alone. I do use Six Star Pro Nutrition Whey Protein + from Walmart. Mixed with 15oz of milk, either at lunch or right after a KB session. With that I average 142grams a day. My bodyweight equivalent.
