    Dunns River Nurishment

    Does anybody drink this on a cutting/bulking diet?

    Being a vegetarian I am struggling to get a good amount of protien a day, my snacks and dinners mostly consist of carbs (rice, pasta, bread, fruit) and I don't think I can afford 1 million for 10 scoops of protien powder.

    I am cutting at the moment to get rid of my flab, would Dunns River Nurishment be ok to drink? I can't remember the cals, fat etc. but I think it contains quite a bit of fat, but a large amount of protien.

    Thanks

    you could go for straight milk as its cheaper.

    the dunns stuff is about a 1 pound per can i think.

    you can cheap protien online that will work out far cheaper

    I know nothing about protien supplements, how much would I expect to pay and how many servings would I get. And what is better: 100% whey, designer whey etc.?

    How much do you weigh? I'm vegetarian and some days I worry I'm eating too much protein. How about posting your diet? As far as protein powder goes, I don't think there's really a clear winner. Try a particular brand and see if you can stomach it

    I weigh ~165lbs at 6'1".

    I don't have a diet that I stick to, I just try to eat a low calorie healthy diet.

    What do you eat for protien?

    Quorn, lots of quorn Other meat substitutes such as tofu and seitan. Protein powder helps a lot, I have it with breakfast, pre and post workout and before bed.

    I eat a lot of Quorn, but I am getting far from the 165g of protien that Bradley recommended.

    hmm.. it isn't easy what with being in the UK... we get ripped off.. as with most things... do a search, there's a few threads on sites to buy it from, should be a few UK sites.. finding a cheap one is that hard part..

    It's not too bad.. 32g of protein.. apparently 44 servings each of the 4 tubs, 1 tubs being 330g.. 19.99 - it's not exactly great but it's a start...

    *32g per serving.. i.e per drink.. 330g's in weight, each tub.


    I would have recommended a site i last bought some Whey from but i had a lot of hassle with them, hence me not suggesting one.

    I'm on the look out myself for a new 'supplier'.


    *Found the catch - when taken with semi-skimmed milk

    The York stuff in Argos doesnt taste the best and has soy in it, but its still going to make you big, Its also vegetarian so you will be ok with it.

    Im also a vegetarian but I eat lots of animal protein in the form of milk and eggs. I drink at least 3 pints of the white stuff every day.

    And although protein is expensive, I found the money by giving up alcohol. 20-30 a month is alot less money than what I use to spend going to the pub in a month.

    I would go with a blend of some sort, over 100% whey, since you will be using the protein throughout the day. Although I agree with Delphi, in that you should be able to get in plenty of protein through eggs/egg whites, milk, soy, beans, etc., but a protein powder or MRP is convenient. There were some threads in the supplement section that mentioned supplement suppliers in the UK, and I will see if I can find them.

    Thanks.

    So you would say it costs about 20 - 30 a month for it? Would that be about 60 servings?

    When I get a job (poor college student) I should be able to afford it. But with having a job and going to the gym, I don't know when I will have time to do college work

    And yes, I eat Quorn but I always find that I have to mix it in with carbs (bread, pasta, rice) and I end up eating more carbs than protien.

    I know protein is expensive, but the cheapest source I know of is skimmed milk, you can drink at least 3 pints a day for under a quid.

    You need protein or your muscles will disapear. I know what would be good for you, low fat cottage cheese. You can eat load of that and the calorie content is quite low, but it is packed with the right sorts of protein.
    Eat at least 500g of low fat cottege cheese a day James and I think you will be on the right track
