I'm 18 and have recently joined the gym. I've been looking around and I want to add a protein shake in addition to what I eat to bulk as I am slim and not the strongest. I've done my research and a Whey protein product seems the best for me. But I can't decide on which product and how do I do so? I've looked at 3, Optimum nutrition gold standard 100% Whey and BSN syntha 6 seem quite highly rated but they're much more expensive than Impact Whey protein from the myprotein website which I've been recommended. Any advice and reccomendations on what decision and how I make one?

The protein works whey.

I used Optimum nutrition gold standard, taste is nasty and doesn't mix well.

TPW have so many more flavours, mix better and also are a lot cheaper.

I've heard good things about my protein aswell, from what I know it's like a sister company of TPW, so just get whichever works out cheaper.

Because whey protein somehow isn't healthy...

Good luck acquiring 180g of protein consistently on a daily basis without breaking the bank though.

What do you mean isn't healthy and breaking the bank?

:rofl:

Sorry my biology teacher must have missed the part out about needing 180g of protein a day :teehee:

Oh and whey protein is just a waste product in the manufacture of cheese which is used to make money off naive bodybuilders.

Not much. It's not worth the hefty premium.

MyProtein or Go nutrition are usually the cheapest places to get some whey. Check out muscle supermarket, it's run by a user on here, their weekly newsletter often links to really good deals

You must be some pioneer for this weird whey protein conspiracy! Who knew, this supplement that has been documented to work, with athletes of all kinds using it to supplement their diet, are actually being shammed?

OP didn't ask for you to discuss whether or not whey protein is effective (which it is), he just asked for which brand was good.

Also, you are not not morally above, or better than anyone for not using supplements, which the pragmatics of your comments have implied. I like how you think you know everything because you took a biology class. 0.8g of protein per lb of lean body mass has been documented to be optimal for building muscle (which I can provide a source for, unlike your weird whey protein conspiracy **** lmao).

:laugh:

Whey conspirisist, I like it :smug:

True, OP didn't ask so this will be my last reply on this thread.

Has been documented to work? Just because athletes gain muscle when they have whey it works?

I dunno about that i have good morals, lmao wasn't just one biology class but what evs. According to you unless you weigh 102kg you don't need 180g of protein a day.

102kg is definitely not a healthy weight imo. Also I have my own source which contradicts what you say tbh... Can't quote cause on mobile but recommended protein intake a day is widely disputed between experts so you can't just claim one golden number.

Thank you for your time :hat2:

He's a troll. You're wasting your time.

You might find this useful - two years old but still pretty relevant.
