I used to take the optimum nutrition gold standard 100% whey protein, however the guy down at the suplement shop recommended intek evolution since I was trying to lean out. The intek is egg white protein and is time released. Not real sure how that works, but I've been happy with it so far. Runs about $60 for a 5 pound tub.

It's similar to Phase 8, Dymatize iso-7 and MP's combat powders. There are multiple protein sources so you get quick acting proteins combined with slow digesting proteins. These types of proteins are released into your system over 0-7 hours or so.

Check the current Dymatize specials through bodybuilding.com. I think they have a buy two 2lbs & get one free or a 4lb tub & get a 2lb free promotion currently.

I like to have 100% whey casein and mass gainer all on hand. I only use optimum nutrition then I can mix or take what I need. I normally just do a shake a day unless I don't have time to eat good meals. I wish I had the time to get all my nutrition from God made foods.

My advice Mike is become aware of good and bad fats, and how and where they come from. Also amino acids are an important role as far as proteins go. For protein, first off make sure you're eating healthy then worry about protein shakes. For protein shakes I prefer Musclepharm combat or ON (Gold standard mentioned above). I like the combat because it is a mix of whey, hydro whey, egg and casein (IIRC). So it has the quick and slow digesting for after workout and to keep me going throughout the day. Bodybuilding.com does have awesome deals, where I get all my stuff. Depending on your goals and current physical level would depend on the amount of protein you should be intaking. I'm not a nutritionist but if you want to talk more in detail you can always PM m.
I know this I a couple months old, but this is very well said and good advice. I can break it down a bit further. I study dietetics/nutrition as my major and have been in the field for quite a while

Proteins are less likely to be stored as fats than carbs and fats, but they can be under the right(wrong) circumstances, I.e. Excessive caloric consumption. But you can have an accumulation of ammonia in the body from the broken down proteins which can affect the brain and kidneys. Stick to 1g protein per body lb MAX and adjust as weight increase. Technically for anabolism its 1-1.5g per 2.2 lbs but there's a lot of debate about that.

I'm not saying don't eat carbs/fats bc you NEED those for proper muscle gains, but proteins build enzymes, hormones, and much more and are typically utilized to a much greater extent and thus less likely stored as fat.

Carbs will run your body and fuel your brain, but when excess has been consumed an muscle glycogen is replenished your body will not waist this diamond coated gasoline, so it will be converted and stored as fats for later use. Small portions and frequency are best.

For fats, focus on flax, sunflower and olive oil (cold, do not heat) for dressings or canola oil for cooking. Use sparingly. Little bits goes a long way. Like 1-2 tablespoon per serving

Focus on eating quality foods through out the day and use a whey protein (fast absorption) pre (1hour before) and post workout(immediately after) with 2g creatine each shake to stay anabolic in the gym and step up the recovery.

If your diet is really lacking in QUANTITY then use the sustain release shakes (musclepharm combat or another whey/egg/casein) to wash down your meals, but try and focus on "food" for they have much more nutrients and phytonutrients to offer

Sorry for the rant Michael!

You have my number now, shoot me a text if you ever have any questions On this stuff. I will be a registered dietitian here in the next year. One more semester left, woot!!!

I would go for the optimum protein for the whey and dymatize elite xt is a great and inexprensive anytime sustained protein.

Flavors will be different for everyone. I sell more vanilla proteins than every flavor combined, but personally hate vanilla.

The banana nut dymatize elite xt and the mocha 100% whey are my personal favs

Do you see any issues using a protein supplement on off days, or should it be used as only pre and post workout?
