Recommend protein for post-workout

Looking for a new protein for post workout smoothies. I always have a fruit/protein smoothie after my workout and I'd like to try a new whey protein. I've been using "body fortress" which is cheap at Walmart. Thanks

BSN in my opinion makes the best stuff and keeps the fat and carbs in check. Mixes super well and taste amazing. I just use water and a shaker cup.
Muscle Milk taste good also but makes you fat. Never had any luck with the bags of protein powder stuff you find at retail or warehouse clubs, I am picky when it some to how it taste. But if you are mixing it with fruit and a blender you probably can get by with almost anything.

Elite whey protein from the Vitamin Shoppe is delicious. You need a blender though to mix it well (haven't tried a shaker cup). Has some BCAA's in it too, not sure if they all do.

try no smoothie but just pure GNC whey protein. If you prefer results over the palatability .

IMHO, I have tried about everyone of them. Things I learned, price has no bearing on taste or performance or results, vanilla is awful, strawberry taste like.....shiat. I stick with chocolate. I mix it with about 4 oz of fat free milk, I have a shaker cup that has a blue freezer ice pack built into it, keeps the milk cold. On Amazon I found a 5lb container of Twin Labs "100% Whey Protein Fuel" some flavor called "Chocolate Surge" I do 2 scoops a day for 50 Grams of protein, $40 included shipping. The people claiming protein powder tastes bad mix it with H20, try milk. Also if you want results forget alcohol or eating out, period. There are absolutely NO shortcuts. Change your workouts at least every 8 weeks.

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

Horizon Organic Chocolate milk for any workout under 2 hours. Just a half glass to keep calories down. Workouts over 2 hours hammer recoverite. For those workouts under 2 hours you don't need a high calorie recovery drink. It's better to plan them before a regular meal and skip the protein drink.

You can burn plenty of calories in an hour to warrant a recovery drink.

Meh, you can. But if your trying to lean out why give up almost half the work you just did. It doesn't make sense. You don't NEED a recovery drink under 2 hours. You didn't drain your bodied glycogen stores completely in that time frame. You come pretty close. But for leaning out you a better off doing your workout and then just eating a normal meal where you get the protein/carbs you need normally. Over two hours you can use the extra help you get from recovery drinks. It's just a smarter way to keep the calories low and get the after workout protein you need. From the OPs other posts I'm assuming that is his objective. Lots of people get fooled by all the marketing on recovery drinks about what they need after workouts. Honestly, if you look past the amino acids and glutamine etc the content of those recovery drinks can be had in your meals pretty easily. It can even be had in a small glass of chocolate milk. It cost a lot less that way and te companies that make recovery drinks don't want you to figure that out. So yes, you can afford the cals in the drink, but why do it if you don't have to?

I was drinking casein (I think that's how you spell it) which is a whole lot thicker than a shake but helps keep your muscle after workouts and especially overnight

I'm curious, what is the harm if you aren't concerned about calories. According to a few calorie counter sheets I've used, I'm supposed be getting about 2700 calories a day for my workouts. Protein shakes (2) give about 300 calories towards my daily goal, which I typically have a hard time reaching that number.

2700 per day total or just for your workouts? If you don't care about calories it doesn't hurt at all. But you still don't need them. If your eating properly they are a waste of money. They aren't cheap! Most people have no problem getting to 2700+ per day. They don't even realize it. I'm in no place to judge you though. So if you feel you need a protein drink go right ahead. It's like drinking a soda. It's really empty calories if you don't need it. And unless your working out more than 2 hours you don't. I was trying to address the OP. I I'm not mistaken his objective is weight loss. So I'm sure 300, which is on the low side for 2 protein drinks, makes a difference to him.

I'm talking about me, but I was doing the same exercise as ZoombyU, that's why I am interested. Yeah 2700 per day if I am eating good foods (whole grains, lean proteins, lots of veggies) seems to be hard for me. If you don't eat well on the other hand, it's easy to hit that number.

Weight loss is one of my goals along with gaining strength and endurance. I'm down 28.5 lbs from 3 months ago and getting close to where I want to be. The smoothie is one of my meals not an addition to a meal. My recipe:

1.5 scoops whey protein
1 cup V8 VFusion
3/4 cup nonfat yogurt
1 cup frozen berries
1/2 banana
Ice

Whatever works with John Doe doesn't mean it will work on everybody in regards with calories and stuffs. Each bodies have individual differences. If I work out intensively in less than 2 hours I will still take Protein supplements.



If you work harder and intense, regardless of how long you are working out, you may wanna take supplements to fasten the recovery of muscles for the next workout. That if you want to see results fast and efficiently.

No one is stopping anyone from taking Protein drinks. If your objective is to bulk up, by all means do them. It's easy and effective. But if you want abs?, those are made in the kitchen. They are not sold in a bottle, a drink or made in the gym. You're right though, everyone wants abs but no one wants to work for them. Unless your genetically blessed you work for them with your diet. Sure once you lose the fat it's nice if those muscles are toned and large from working out. But you need to lose the fat to see them. Believe what you want, I'm not stopping you. But there is a lot of marketing and gimmicks out there around drinks and supplements. Do your research and you'll find you can get the same benefit from foods at half the cost of those drinks. You can throw away the rest of the GNC type garbage supplements that are in there. Half of them find themselves off the market when side effects are discovered and the other half get pissed out because your body probably made all it needed anyway. The only one that beneffits is the companies and the only thing lost is money out of your wallet.

If the OP wants to use the drinks as a meal replacement that works. It's easy and effective and sounds like you are mixing in good stuff with it. That's probably the best convenience use I've seen of them. Kudo's. I just get a kick at all the new folks at the gym that run to their protein drinks after their workouts. They burn 200 cals on the treadmill and drink 350 worth of peanut butter and chocolate protein drink and then can't figure out why the weight isn't coming off. This is why I suggest planning workouts around meals you have to eat anyway. You'll get the carb/protein mix you need after intense workout without all te garbage gimmicks that don't work, and cut down on the calories at the same time.

Its all about the results. But that's for me. I won't recommend these workouts and supplements to get a fast results for everyone but I'm just saying so that we can compare notes. Goodluck guys.

As long as you spend all your food calories intake you won't store fats. Abs is not only made in the kitchen. You have to work it out.

I use Integrated Supplements Vanilla Whey from fitrx.com and mix it with spinach, a tablespoon of Smuckers reduced fat "Natural style" (it tastes delicious but still high calorie), half of a banana, and 3/4 cup of almond milk. That shit is delicious and filling.

I don't know what it takes to get ripped abs but if you search Hot Chicks with Abs on facebook there are, well, hot chicks with abs. Many of the pictures show them in the gym and fitness models also spend a lot of time in the gym. So it would seem that a combination of eating right and lifting weights for bodybuilding is what would help get some ripped abs. Some people out there just eat five guys burgers and portillos and get the same results. Either way I like to see hot chicks with abs on the daily.
