QUESTION: I've just begun working out more and want to keep all the muscle that I'm gaining. What protein powder would you recommend for a good balance of high protein/low carbs+fats/actually tastes good?

  1. I'm assuming you're trying to cut? Stick to lean meats like chicken and turkey breast and fish. You still actually want to keep your unsaturated fat levels pretty high, so fish is good for this.

    If you're not cutting... You should be eating all the clean carbs and fats you can get your hands on lol you'll never lose muscle while running a calorie surplus... Just try not to get too fat

    1. I was going to just stick with lots of meats, but everyone I've talked to has advised me that I can't get enough protein through foods alone.

    2. 1 again. Have you already started counting your macros? You might be surprised how much protein you take in if you're eating several small meals a day that have some sort of meat in them. You also will be getting a lot of protein through legumes, milk, and other dairy. Also you can easily drink protein shakes with 80+ grams of protein per shake.

  2. Cellucor flavours are all good or great. My favourite being mint chocolate chip & peanut butter marshmallow.
    The simple flavours from Optimum Nutrition (ON) [i.e. chocolate, vanilla, etc.] are great, but their other flavours pale in comparison to Cellucor's (at least in my opinion).
    For cheaper + natural wheys (some of the above have artificial sweeteners, which not everybody likes), check out truenutrition.com. You can customize your whey and honestly, it's hard to beat their prices.

    1. cellucor here too - ive been through a lot of them and this one's the best tasting. also a respectable brand. Brand matters OP, supplements are unregulated and some companies lie on their labels

    2. Just because supplements aren't as well regulated as actual food products doesn't mean companies can just outright lie on their labels.. Unless their CEO's want to go to prison for wire fraud lol.

    3. Yeah, they actually can outright lie. There was a guy who tested some popular brands for protein % and found that a decent number of them were off, and some by quite a bit.
