Protein

postby CorkSport - Derrick » 02/13/15 @ 16:39

I started using a food health calculator recently to log intake and exercise and I found that I am not getting enough protein to hit my calorie goals regularly.

So I am shopping around to see what anyone else is using for extra protien. I want to stay away from any that have sucralose/artificial sweetners if at all possible.

One I was looking at is http://www.optimumnutrition.com/products/100-Whey-Gold-Standard-p-201.html

Any other suggestions?

The stuff you posted is pretty much the standard. It's some of the purest form of whey available. I like to mix protein with some psyllium husk based fiber supplement to improve absorption. As an added bonus you poop much cleaner, usually 1 wipe does the job! You might want to look into a BCAA supplement as well if you're on a deficit diet. It'll help you hold onto muscle mass.

I use ON 100% whey. Great stuff. I've gone through an amazing amount of protein...

Only gotcha is reading the label. Each flavor has different sweeteners and ingredients. The double chocolate has no sucralose. There's a couple others without the sweetener, but I like the double chocolate.

The "rich" chocolate ON 100% whey that Costco sells? It has friggin sucralose.

I will look into the BCAA. I dont have much more to go on the weight loss ~5 lbs until I am done but I know I have been not getting enough of the proteins.

Thanks for the heads up on the costco stuff. I chose the ON based on the lack of sucralose. Seems like a majority of the brands out there have it.

I've been using this to choose my supplements. They put popular brands through actual lab testing, and post the results. You'll need membership to see the full reports, I'm considering trying out membership to see if it's worth it. Results are interesting to say the least, expensive brands are rarely the highest in purity. Often times value brands show high purity, and low impurities.

ok, I got to get back in shape... I'm not fat thanks to my father's genes, but I have no muscles whatsoever... So I just ordered some equipment and protein to ease the process

I've lost 30lbs in the past year and a half. The first 10 months was disappointing, I was gaining strength and endurance, but I only lost 10lbs. Was experimenting with supplement stacks, and adjusting diet. Finally started seeing some results again the last 5 months. Although, the last 10lbs I lost, I lost some strength along with it. Some things that seemed to improve results for me.

Don't try to workout everyday, give a day of rest in between gym days
Multi-vitamin, and omega3 with high protein breakfast (eggs)
Water, multi, and omega before going to bed.
Get checked for allergies, a lot of allergies might not give any noticeable symptoms, but apparently screw with your digestion enough that avoiding them dramatically improve sense of well being (more energy, pooping more predictably, better sleep)

The allergies has been something I have been working on as well. I started a pile of shots to build the immunities and I am about 1/3 of the way through it. So far so good but last weeks shot start to swell up a bit so I am not looking forward to the new batch when the dosage goes from 10,000 to 1000.

I am still riding the bike for 1 hour 4-5 times a week but racing scheduled have been screwing that up a bit over the past few months.
