I would prefer this one. I am using gold standard now but will switch to this after I'm done.
IsoNatural - Whey Protein Isolate

By the way, there is no taste so you can mix it with anything you want.

I'm going for the 5lb tub. My son needs extra protein. He ate 4 quarter pounders at one sitting at lunch. I'm trying to substitute some of the red meat he constantly craves during the day.

I think he might be growing again. He just turned 14, 5' 10" and weighs 190lbs now.

I need some too for my workouts.

I have the 5 lb tub. It's pretty damn expensive; I paid $88 CDN at GNC.

I'm thinking of just using it as a post-workout protein source, and at other times of the day, using a soy based protein.

That's expensive. Some of the online places charge about 50 bucks US.

I'm not saying the one you posted isn't good, I'm really not sure.

The other one that's being discussed has no artificial colour, no artificial flavour, 93% pure whey isolate protein, and mixes just by shaking in a lidded cup (or stirring with a spoon in a glass.

isopure is the best protein i've found. great stuff. i mix with soymilk, someone else mentioned above.

GNC? biggest ripoff going. go to vitacost.com, i get all my protein and supps there -- isopure at half the cost of GNC.

only issue i have with isopure its lots of gas though ...

does vitacost ship to canada? and do you know if they'll try to give you old inventory or not? cuz i tried buying l glutamine from an online store before, and it was just horrible. i opened the bottle and all the glutamine was stuck together.

As I'd really like to know, I repost my question from the other thread here too, hoping for some insight.

Honest question: is there any particular reason why people don't seem to manage to get the required daily amount of protein (which isn't that much anyway) through their diet? I wonder because I have no problem with that, and I just eat healthy (whole wheat stuff, some soy, beans etc, I'm a vegetarian).

I really do not know. Well, how do you know you're getting enough?

I just kind of eat and don't keep track I guess.


I think people drink protein to boost their intake to help them faster build muscles. The daily intake of protein without taking other supplements is fine except people perhaps like to see results quicker.

But too much protein isn't really healthy for an omnivore.

You know you get enough (or not) when you monitor your eating habits for some time.

Well, personally I don't think I get enough protein as a college student who has a pretty messed up diet.

I hardly eat enough balance of veggies and meat.

I think most of my diet consists of bread...

because of laziness. for someone who is trying to put on muscle mass, it takes a significant amount of effort to prepare the quantity of food that would provide the required amount of calories and/or protein. it's possible to do with whole foods, but it takes more dedication and time. i really have no idea why those who arent trying to take in large amounts of protein, buy protein supplements. i guess it's a trend just like anything else.

I think it not only has to do with laziness, but also delivery time. Consuming a bottle of a protein shake after a workout can delivery the protein to your bloodstream and consequently muscles much faster post-workout when you need it most than if you were to try and consume a meal after working out...(even though you're supposed to any way, so I think I'm trying to talk about IMMEDIATELY post-workout haha)

You are correct actually regarding post workout protein mixes. It is VERY important to eat a fast digesting meal after working out (right after...actually in the middle of and right after a hard workout). I usually get hydrolized whey with waxy maize for my post workout. I wouldn't be able to get the same effect for post workout if i went home and had to prepare a meal.

I think for people who don't really need more protein the act of drinking and or eating protein supplements is a trend that might make them feel better. It is almost like a quick fix sort of diet idea where you don't really have to do anything but drink this or eat this to be lean.

In reality, it is darned hard work and requires not only time in the gym but time preparing your meals (i only have 2 shakes a day, one in the AM and one post workout...all the rest i try to get from good well rounded meals). Luckily i LOVE to cook so the meal part for me is fun and theraputic but it can be time consuming.
