I went through a similar situation, listen to me and go with ON Pro Gainer OR one stop extreme ( 47g of carbs with almost no added sugars ). We can speak on Instagram if you need further help.

Impact whey isolate from myprotein. Also if you're skinny, you have to eat in a caloric surplus to gain weight.

Whey isolate isn’t going to work, he MUST go with a protein that contains some carbohydrates ( not sugar based ).

Also, I’ve tried Myprotein smooth chocolate and it was a nightmare, the worst taste I’ve ever had, couldn’t believe I finished it

No he does not HAVE to go with a protein powder with some random carb source thrown in. He can get carbs from more nutritious sources. Protein and carbs are 2 different things my friend.

I have tried myprotein chocolate brownie it was very nice much better than ONs double chocolate.

Who said he should go with some random carb source thrown in? There are types of protein which identifies which sources they get the carb from.

As a guy who went through similar situation, I need some information from him to confirm which type he needs, this is not something I’m just trying on him, I’ve been undergoing ( and still ) the supervision of an athletic.

After all, we all have different opinions so, I will tell him my advice which I’ve tried myself and he can choose which opinion to follow.

Thanks

I bought the biggest size, couldn’t remember how many servings I think 200. I don’t have the words to express how bad it was.

When I finished it, I immediately bought dymatize so I can guarantee it tastes great

Yes I am aware that they list the ingredients. However they're much more expensive and a lot less nutritious than a tub of whey and a bag full of oats or rice. What more information do you require from him? He asked for a protein shake, not an investment thesis.

i've tried the normal whey my protein and found it did not mix well with the water and after like 10 minutes plus of shaking still had a hell of a lot of big lumps. also i didn't feel great after eating it a lot of the time. eventually i stopped buying whey protein.

last week though i started a cut, and realistically it was gonna be very very difficult if i didn't supplement protein so i bought this one

so far so good, and after a good 2 minute shake the whey mixes in with the water properly and there are no big lumps

Looks like you are funny but not able to guide on fitness things. Posting the type of protein he should use without knowing his weight and height, workout intensity, target, nutrition information etc.. if you can tell without knowing that, it proves that you know nothing about this sport.

I’ve suggested some types but still couldn’t confirm which one he should use without having some information.

always buy a much smaller size when buying stuff you haven't tried before to avoid this.

you were faced here with having to consume something you didn't like for months and months to get your moneys worth, or throw it away and waste money.
