    Not sure if we can mention brands here, but I like whey isolate over anything else.

    Been using True Nutrition for well over a decade; mainly straight WPI, but also a blend of WPI, casein, and egg protein.

    MyProtein is fucking awesome, and their prices are unbeatable when they are running a big sale, which happens pretty often.

    Just last week, I snagged 2.2 lbs. of Creatine Mono, 11 lbs. of whey concentrate and 8.8 lbs. of milk protein concentrate for $116. Then they threw in a free jar of powdered peanut butter as a bonus for the order being over $75.

    Right here, pick which fits you best. I have used the peptopro for ever, pricey and taste like bull piss (guess).

    DAMN, that's awesome. You can tweak and tailor your own blends. I think I may have found a new first choice.

    Thx BG

    Well I'm,ok with that.

    I order all my proteins unflavored and when mixed with unflavored creatine, bcaa, and taurine and carnitine, they taste like drinking bitter battery acid.

    Or my hemp protien, taste like a ground up piece of wood.

    I haven't enjoyed goid flavored food with sauces or excessive salty seasoning since 2012. Except for my oatmeal pancake recipe, it has Stevia and cocoa powder and mashed up nana

    Same here, used them for well over a decade. I have 2 mixes I buy one pre-lift and the other is a post-lift/night mixture. Totally agree, Pepto-pro defo has a funky taste.
    I think my favorite flavors currently are the cafe mocha and the toasted coconut.

    I worked at nutrition stores for years. And I can tell you from experience that whey protein - at least at the ridiculous prices they have it at now - is a complete and total WASTE of money.

    Back in the day 10 to 15 years ago protein was still cheaper than food. I could get a 10 lb bag online for $24.99.

    Today it still costs them the same, they just take an exorbitant profit. The same 10lb bag costs $100, 4 times more. Now they make an extra $75 profit at your expense! And they also added unhealthy additives like artificial sweeteners as well. What a rip off.

    You can get the same amount of protein from actual food, but not only that I find that FOOD actually builds BETTER quality muscle that stays longer, than whey, based on my experience. Food-built muscle lasts 3 to 5 times longer than whey muscle.

    Not only that it's often CHEAPER to eat FOOD than whey powder.

    WORSE, it's actually BAD to eat 99% of whey powder because it has artificial sweeterns including sucralose (splenda), acesufame-k, aspartame, and more! Also stevia is NOT a healthy alternative!

    IF you MUST take protein powder, you must get UNFLAVORED natural kind. There are super expensive ones, waste of money, about 2 to 10 times more expensive than actual food. I have found only TWO that are left that you can get in 2017, that is an OK price, and that doesn't contain any additives or artificial sweeteners. One is from an online site I forget the name but it comes from Europe I found it thanks to a poster above, myprotein.com. The other is at GNC unflavored version.

    Please note that flavored version of both Myprotein and GNC BOTH contain artificial sweeteners. You HAVE to get unflavored to avoid it. Unfortunately, I believe both contain soy lecithin as an emulsifier.

    However, even the GNC unflavored is still way too expensive and I don't recommend to take any protein powder. Just eat eggs and stuff. If you are bulking for a competition, it can be difficult to eat that much in that case I understand but if at all possible I recommend to avoid protein powder because it is too expensive compared to food and has Zero benefits over food in fact food has better gains than whey powder.

    chicken
    beef
    nuts (cashews, peanuts, etc)
    dairy including:
    -- raw milk is best, if you can get legally in your state
    -- cheese
    -- yogurt

    there you have it all the protein you need

    that said i have some unflavored gnc protein powder and a natural recipe I use to add to it to make it palatable healthily. interesting though i haven't taken any in many months, I better use it before it goes bad. I prefer food over the powder.
