View Full Version : Best protein mix

I'm looking into hitting the gym hard this summer and I was wondering what protein mixes are good.. I want a high protein, calorie mix, low sugar and low sodium. Also would there be anything wrong in getting a 25lb pale of that stuff or would it go bad??

Any type of whey protein would be good. Just find one you like the task of. Whey protein isolates are better then concentrate, but they both are good.

I would find a flavor I like before investing in 25lbs of the stuff.

I like the vanilla flavour SciFit isolate. Not the most high tech stuff on the market, but it tastes good, mixes very well, and from what I see, it works too!!

Try it in a glass of milk though, with water it tastes kinda nastified. Also, don't buy the chocolate version, it is terrible, if you want chocolate, buy the vanilla flavour, and add a touch of cocoa.

It has been my experience to stay away from stuff like GNC black tub protein mix. from what I have read, it costs half as much, but you use more than twice as much to get an equal benefit. it tastes like as* and it doesn't mix well ;-)

I also used to like ProLab whey!

Check out a few and come to your own conclusion, just make sure to read the contentss first, and compare the nutritional values before you buy!

Hope this helps

I like the black tub protein mix; you have to mix it with a hand blender because it does mix like sh1t.

Two scoop of the chocolate powder in a glass filled with 1% milk taste great.

I use Met-Rx Protein Plus myself...mainly because it was sitting in Trader Joe's while I was shopping. Tastes great.
