    Default what to look for in a protien powder

    What do you guys look for in a protien power?

    Background: I was a phsyically fit kid played hockey at a high level and never needed to workout. When i was 18 i got in a car accident and it messed me up pretty bad. I am now 24 and according to my doctors i am ready to get back into hockey and working out. I lost 30 pounds from just changing my diet and am looking to kick it up a notch. I only work out with weights 2-3 times a week just to start but i play hockey and get out as much as i can. I figure a protein powder would start to help a little more. So what do i look for? Whey, creatien, soy whey? Are calories and fat important? What do you look for when you are looking for a new powder or what do you like about the one you use.

    you are spelling protein wrong, that's why it's not coming up in a search.
    "protein" comes up with over 50 thread hits in the health/fitness sections.

    Do a search, start reading.
    Protein isn't something that needs to be asked so often.

    Whey Protein (isolates/concentrate/hydro): Fast acting proteins - eat after workouts

    Casein/Egg Protein: Slow/Medium acting protein - eat during long periods of no food/before sleep

    Soy: Increases estrogen potentially - don't eat

    Fats: Slows down digestion. You will want to eat fat if you want to slow down the protein digestion (no wanted post workout.)

    Creatine: You can't spell it correctly, and I don't think you're at that level yet (not that it's really hardcore or anything.) Get the basics down first like diet and protein.

    People like you on these forums piss me off. Does it hurt you to have someone ask a question that has already been asked? And do you really need to call people on incorrect spelling? If everyone used the search feature for everything there would be no threads because everything has already been covered on Beyond at some point I am sure.

    Get a life.

    OP: My bad, I was not aware that you already did a search with correct spelling....

    chathamf: If people like me piss you off, add me to your ignore list and quit your bitching.
    No one is forcing you to read my posts.

    Now that the OP has explained that he has already searched I can now offer advice/experience.

    I use "PERFECT WHEY" (in capital letters)

    Intense Flavour

    Strawberry Ice

    5LBS

    fat 1.3g per serving
    28g protein per serving

    Picture: http://www.peak7nutrition.com/Perfect%20Whey.JPG

    To be honest though, the flavour isn't as intense as it says on the bottle, it's kind of weak flavour, kinda like strawberry whipped cream kind of flavour, not too intense.

    OP: I think you should buy the exact same stuff and ingest it in large quantities.
    I am so strong because of this stuff, such large muscles and such. Take a look at the 3 month challenge thread(TurboD), and that was only one or two servings to get those results. Just imagine if I took this stuff every day!

    Now that I have more value to this thread, chathamf, would you like to know what I HATE? It's useless hypocrite idiots like yourself that post to bitch and never input any information relevant to the thread.

    I don't know where Time Attack came from, but he seems to be the smartest troll I have ever seen. Like a contributer in disguise. It's very frustrating.

    Feel free to add me to your ignore list, I don't think it would be fair to force you to read my posts.
    Btw, if i'm a troll contributor, what does that make you? "contributor critic"? or "misunderstanding police"?

    And so it begins again. Same shit for brains know it all posts by TurdD in every thread in the fitness forum. Spouting off fact until he gets caught and then crying out that everyone should be able to post opinions.
    heloc that shit

    Get caught?
    Get caught doing what?

    What facts have I spouted off?
    I gave my opinion on a protein that I use.

    I think you need to re-read the other posts in this thread to find out who is really crying. Re-read your own while your at it.

    If you are calling me a "know it all" for being able to spell protein, then I can accept that.

    More like, here we go again, lint thinks you need to be mr Olympia before you can post what brand protein you use.

    If we do a tally, only liquid and myself have posted relevant information in this thread.

    How quickly you forget the shit you spouted off in the monkey pullups thread. Change the name, but the turd just stays the same.

    You don't have to be Mr Olympia to post. You should be able to apply some knowledge to be taken seriously. Who the fuck cares what brand of protein a weak ass sissy takes? Or what exercises a weak ass sissy does?

    In the same post you both defended monkey pullups and called me a sissy.

    LOL - that monkey pullup thread is almost a year old and you are still crying about it.

    This is for you lint:

    I hereby concede that lint is totally correct, you must integrate monkey pullups into your routine if you want to be a heavy weight powerlifter.
    Monkey pullups are a key component to power lifting, and without them, you are likely to never be successful in powerlifting.

    Monkey pullups are the best exercise for really big muscles and strength. Forget what people have told you about deadlifts, bench, and squats, what you really need to focus on is weighted monkey pullups.

    I will now change my gym routine to be monkey pullups for 20 sets every single day and hope that I turn into a powerlifter.

    Any idiot can see how a swinging hang from a bar could directly translate into lifting 500lbs off the ground.

    I don't want to ignore you. I like reading some of the things you have to say.

    Stay on topic big guy

    You were banned for a reason the first go around.

    To the OP: protein whey is pretty basic stuff. There are variations of the mix (ie- casein, soy, etc. etc.), but if you're just getting into lifting/fitness and aren't in tune with the demands of your body quite yet, grab whatever whey tastes good and you'll actually drink.

    I always grab whey with as little carbs as possible so that they don't factor into my diet in any other way aside from protein, but that's just my preference.

    Just don't get conned into spending a ton of money on whey. It's whey, nothing immensely complicated.
