Where are your favorite places to order protein, unflavored whey?
Meat as unprocessed and not over cooked is always the best source. Man-made proteins (powders) have their place, but shouldn't replace fresh cooked unprocessed meats on a regular basis.
I use supplementwarehouse.com Used to use TFsupplements but going to supplementwarehouse, they will match any price you find (even online places) and beat it by 5% no matter what. Just have to put in the site you found it on and their price and it will calc for you. And you can get bunch of small freebies with each order. Just make sure you order a good amount at 1 time because its 16$ for shipping. I normally will buy 3mo worth of stuff and just stock up
Going to give them a try. Been buying from BB.com since I've been in the states and while they have a good selection & super fast shipping, their prices are a touch high. Cheers for the suggestion!
Shoot I eat 4 meals a day and throw in a shake in the morning when I wake up, and usually one immediately after workout. I don't think the argument is on whether or not Real Protein sources are better.....just asking where is cheap to buy!
how many grams of protein are you getting at each of those 4 meals?
Chances are, it's around 20-30 grams.
4 meals x 30 grams is only 120 grams per day. That's enough protein for a 120lb athlete who's not on steroids. Even a natural bodybuilder should get about 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight per day.
The protein I buy is the cheapest I found that is made whit whey isolate. It's by Optimum Nutrition and it says 100% Gold Standard on the Label. I get it at Vitamin Shoppe for 24.95.
It has 24 grams of protein per scoop so if I take either 1.5 to 2 scoops a few times per day, plus food meals, I'm doing good.
Some of the top pro bodybuilders are probably taking between 2-3 grams of protein per pound. You would have to supplement to achieve those numbers.
