Looking for the best protein deal today.
2.5kg or 5kg.
Usually go for myprotein impact whey. They only got the 25% off code at the moment which is not great.

Anything good out there? Cheers

there is insufficient evidence to support a cause and effectrelationship between whey protein supplements, branched chain amino acids or L-Glutamine and: the growth or maintenance of muscle mass, an increase in endurance capacity, skeletal muscle tissue repair, and faster recovery from muscle fatigue after exercise.
(the highlighted bit is very important)

Basically you are spending money on product that very likely may not work...


also....
100g of chicken is around 25-30g of protein, average chicken breast is around 180-200 grams (cooked)
200ml of milk (any) is 7g of protein and its extremely versatile
1 egg 7g of protein (average person will have 2-3 in a serving)
just those 3 items could provide nearly 90g of protein, I'm quite sure this would not be everything a person would eat in a day

An athlete needs between 1.2-2g of protein per kg of body weight... and athlete trains 5 days a week for quite a few hours per day. for example Mo Farah - 1.2g/kg protein (he needs more carb tho), I could safely say McGregor will likely need 2g/kg

A balanced diet 55%CHO/35%FAT/15-20%PRO should cover your protein requirement (if your energy needs are eg 3000kcal/day 15-20% of that will be in range of 112-150g of protein per day. For a 80-90 kg person using 1.2-2g/kg.... do the math and see what comes up )
3000kcal is a lot of food (especially in 50/30/20 ratio). Most of the proper body builders will tell you that they dont take supplements because protein keeps you fuller for longer hence suppresses your appetite and meeting (high) energy reqs is far much harder as a result.
A lot of body builders need usually more than 3000kcal (often in range of 4000-5000kcal).
Carbs are important (you need energy to use those muscles, you need energy to utilize protein, and you need energy post workout as first thing that will be used if energy requirements are not met..... is protein). Also carbs are source of fibre (high protein diet is low in fibre and as a result you become constipated and as a result of that you lose your appetite... see where this is going?
Ohh and forgot... the end product of protein metabolism is Urea. High levels of Urea in the blood reduce appetite and increase fatigue.
Hope this helps
