    GNC Whey Protein

    I bought GNC Chocolate Whey protein yesterday, few questions about it, I've also read through a couple posts using the search function.

    Most people seem to think that the GNC whey protein doesn't taste as good, I don't think it's too bad -- is there any possibility that it could be a more inferior product from a nutritional standpoint?

    On the back of the label it says to 1) have three servings a day and 2) drink it immediately before or after a workout. Obviously I'm not working out three times a day, should I follow my drink by a quick set of... let's say... pushups?

    This is probably a dumb question but I'll ask it anyway. I'm adding it to a 1/2 liter bottle of water and shaking it opposed to blending it... this shouldn't matter right?

    Thanks.

    You can drink it whenever you want. You don't need to drink it 3 times a day. They're just trying to get you to use up the product faster and waste your money.


    should I follow my drink by a quick set of... let's say... pushups?
    That would be completely pointless.


    What does your routine look like? What's your diet like?

    I'm doing WBB1.

    Well, after reading this forum I don't think my diet is all that good. Normally don't eat breakfast. Lunch it's normally some form of sandwhich and dinner is usually pasta/vegetables/or some type of meat... heh, needs work I know. I did a few days of fitday, I think my average was around 1500 calories.

    I think you must have been off on your measurements because I am about 5lbs lighter then you and my average day would be around 3000 or more cals. And other then lifting I don't do much (basically sit in front of a computer all day).

    I just couldn't see this being your actual daily intake, unless you just lay in bed all day or something.

    :withstupi Stout's got a point - how do you manage to eat only 1500 calories yet maintain almost 200 lbs? You must have the metabolism of a schoolgirl.

    Hrmmm, even still, I'd still guess that 2000-2300 calories would put you in a caloric deficit... then again, you'd know best!! Keep up lifting and your metabolism will increase like gangbusters.

    But, for reference... GNC whey does taste bad. In milk its not all to bad, but with water ugh. If you can find another brand either online or a different chain I would suggest so. I bet once you try a non-GNC brand you will never go back! Thats how it was for me!
