Bulk Powders currently but have used My Protein in the past.


was looking at bulk powders as seem better value than my protein. would you recommend?
Yeah I've never had a problem. Always quick delivery. Usually there will be some sort of voucher for money off going about if you have a look.

Amazon when they have deals on Optimum Nutrition Gold.
I used to be one of the many who thought it was overpriced so I'd buy cheaper brands like myprotein, but you have to look at the cost per serving not per kg of product.
The cheaper brands also really don't taste as good as the not so cheap ones.

Powdered protein is great as a supplement for those times when it's not convenient to have a whole roast chicken in your gym bag.
It would be lovely if we all had time to make delicious nutritional meals several times a day, but some of us don't.

Really?
Let's see
Breakfast
Scrambled egg X2 = 15g
2 slices of bread =3g
Glass of milk = 7g

Don't like egg swap it for bacon butty and get 20g there
Or porridge made up with milk and some nuts on top

Lunch
Chicken breast (average size is 180g) that's minimum 45g
Piece of fish ... Similar or better
Some veg will have protein
Milky pudding like yoghurt 5-10g

Dinner
Cooked meal as above
Or a sandwich with some ham or chicken or tuna... whatever ,
Peanut butter and banana milkshake 10-15g

Total .... Minimum of over 100g of protein
That's not including snacks or a simple glass of milk as a drink few times in a day


Average 90kg gym goer needs just 1.2g of protein per kilo weight ... Suggest you do the math.

But hey you read those fancy blogs on the internet

Thanks all. I have a balanced diet, but I am only averaging 50 grams of protein against what I would like to have 100gms. I exercise everyday and I want to make sure that my muscles are having enough protein to recover.
I use whey protein from go nutrition. Not entirely sure if they are the best or cheapest, but I've got no complaints and it does the job

balanced diet is around 55/30/15 Carbs/Fat/Protein im assuming you are a male with an average activity and weigh meaning your requirements are around 2400kcal, 15% of that is 360kcal thats equivalent to 90g of protein. I suggest you reconsider and check your diet rather going with pointless supplements. Get the basics right first!!!!
and unless you are hardcore vegan there is no chance you will eat only 50g of protein in a day on a balanced diet

Not everyone has the same body, the same metabolism. Some people who can't keep weight on generally speaking require a higher than average protein intake if they want to increase muscle mass. I'm not saying you can't get protein from your normal diet but there is nothing wrong with supplementing it if that's what you want to do.

I wonder why top performing athletes who have science behind them choose to enhance their training with supplements. I suppose those scientists have been hoodwinked by the pesky advertising as well

In an ideal World - I would have time to prep protein enriched food, but... life isn't that easy, baby, work, life! And thank you mattsk, but your diet is not quite as easy when you a dairy free.
So thanks all for your input, I have opted with bulk powder and myprotein to supplement my diet.

If you are dairy free why are you buying whey protein ?
You think people don't have work , family and so on ?
Balanced diet can be achieved on any form of food allergy or restriction... You clearly can't even get the basics right and yet you are jumping for an easy fix.
If you are dairy free swap for soya based products or lactose free whichever is you apparently suffer from . It's not that hard

You do know that lactose intolerance is very different to a dairy allergy?! And we are on the 'milk ladder' so actually, I can have whey powder.

strange usually gym memberships are between 20-30 quid not sure where you get your prices.
again if you cant get basic nutrition first you should not go fo supplements

yes i know exactly what the difference is.
but you are simply digging a bigger hole, if you are on a milk ladder you should be able to tolerate milk as well if you can have whey (suggest you check how whey protein is made)....but hey im gonna call BS on you claim... as protein powders do no fit anywhere on the milk ladder since they are not treated with heat and denatured

I was treating whey protein like on par with dried skimmed milk. And my daughter has had no reaction when we have mixed in cooking. If whey is not being 'heated' is it the same as me literally having the same milk proteins as drinking a glass of milk? I obviously won't be given her protein shakes, but I am BF, hence why I am on milk ladder? And my diet has mirrored hers on milk ladder to date.

first of all congratulation with BF, not many mums do that.
skimmed milk powder would be heat treated (often rapidly boiled to evaporate the water) whereas protein powders are often filtered through a ceramic filters and then warm/cool dried. so 2 different processes entirely. It is possible that protein powder was cheap enough and they just boiled the crap out of whey liquid rather than filtered.
paediatrics is not my cup of tea but since guidelines have changed to 6 step ladder I dont even know where smp would fit. im guessing you are seeing an actual dietitian at the hospital who should be able to advise you on that (they have far much more experience).
you can also ask her/him if you are getting enough of protein for what you want to do... I can assure you if you are not a grass eater aka vegan you are getting enough of protein especially as a female. save that 40 quid a month and pop it into your baby's saving

Yes, we have a dietitian, so I will drop her a line tomorrow for some guidance. I may just revisit this when we stop BF. Thanks

perhaps someone that is not a face of supplement marketing company? you understand term bias or invested interest?

but let me tell you so you stop with this nonsense. protein shakes have number of unidentified ingredients that on drug/doping test come as positive and lead to disqualification for years or life

properly balanced diet will cover all nutritional needs without supplements you clearly are unable to understand that

I am not disagreeing that you can't get all the protein that you require from a balanced diet but for those who cannot for whatever reason then a supplement is perfectly acceptable.
