View Full Version : Two questions concerning nutrition

1. How many spoons is 30g (~1 ounce, I think) of whey protein powder? I know it depends on the powder, but I just need a ball park. I'm guessing three spoons (the bigger ones), if you take the heap off (level it). Am I way off?

2. Are chocolate chip cookies ok for dessert? The ones I eat have some wheat, and a little bit of protein (6,5%). I eat them because they are a little higher on protein than most other cookies and I eat cookies because I HAVE TO eat something sweet after dinner.

1. Usually between 15-22g. Depends on the type of course, but generally.

2. You don't HAVE to at all. But i doubt a cookie or two won't hurt you.

Remember, that their is unfortunately a difference between bad protein and good protein, and i guess choc chip cookies would not be those of good protein. However. some people can get away with it, ecspecially mesomorphs- I have a firend who can eat almost anything, and it turns into muscle as he does not even work out. Sucks being an endo.
