    Best Protein Powder

    What is the best protein powder that i can get for a reasonable price. Taste is only slightly important, as long as it doesnt taste horrible.

    Also, when is the best time to take a protein shake and are there any other types of shakes you would recommend?

    i use walmart protein has my foundation. its very cheap, and does the job.

    i also you dynomize. typically i mix my walmart protein with everything. it helps with cost.

    so at night, i only do 1 scoop casein, cause its more expensive, with 1 scoop walmart.

    morning, 1 scoop fusion 7 with 1 scoop walmart.

    then throughout day, walmart, with egg protein.

    the egg protein is SUPER CHEAP, however, you have to have mixer for it. so that super sucks.. and not just a quick mix either. is a a good 15-30 seconds mix requirement.
    just me though.

    i could careless about taste though. it could taste like sweaty donkey balls for all i care.

    1. effectiveness
    2. cost.

    bam.

    You can get really good deals on Bodybuilding.com for good protein. You can usually get a 10% off coupon on line if you google for it, usually cancels out the shipping cost. There is a lot of by-products in the protein from Walmart (do some research on it), I beleive its call 5-star or something.

    I would stick with Dymatize Elite or ON Gold Standard, both are good whey proteins at a fairly reasonable cost. Then I use MP Combat Powder at night.

    I would def take a scoop of whey in the morning upon waking, this is when your body needs it most since you have been fasting for 6-8 hours. Then, of course after you workout, or around mid morning and than around mid afternoon on off days. Then your Casein at night.

    ok, well my next question revolves around the number of times you suggest i take it. i assume it differs based on the number of days i am actually working out. I am usually in the gym about 3 days a week working out my upper body and maybe 2 times a week focused on my legs cause I am currently rehabbing from my second torn ACL in about 3 years...

    So, would this change the number of times I should be taking the protein? More or less? and is there anything you guys recommend to help with rehabbing the knee, especially since it has started swelling a lot after strenuous workouts

    It really depends if your bulking or not, I usually always try to get atleast 3 shakes a day with about 25-30 grams of protein in each one. Then I try to get about another 75-100g through my diet, i.e. alot of fish, chicken, beans, lean meats in general. If you want to put on more mass, throw another shake or two in during the day at some point.

    As for your knee, I dont have much experience rehabbing knees, wish I could provide more insight. I can say this, if it is swelling you are probably over doing it, build it up slowly. Wrap it up and take an Aleve, or other anti-inflammatory and get back at it when it feels better.

    You should stretch before working out; especially your knee.

    Do proper squats and lunges to strengthen the muscles around your knee.

    And by the way, those pants, they belong to my dad.And they're not really pants,
    they're Lederhosen

    I'm taking Carnivor right now and its easily my favorite taste wise and the 2nd best I ever took in terms of results (#1 was discontinued a few years ago). It is beef based rather than milk based like most others. Highly reccomend it.

    yeah, i like to take the grams per serving and divide by the protein per serving.

    good is greater then 80%, great is 90%.

    i try not to get anything less then 80.

    I was taking ON Gold Standard, but after they raised the price from $54 to $58, I decided to switch brands. Not trying to sound cheap, but it just ads up fast.

    Right now I'm taking Dymatize Elite Gourmet, and I'm not really liking it. I think I'm going to try something else next time.
