I have been using an EAS whey protein powder that doesnt taste bad but it doesnt mix worth a shit either. The other one is ON Gold Standard Whey. That stuff is pretty good Im just looking for something different. I like to take one shake as soon as I wake up and another before I work out. Then another immediately after I workout. Then I usually finish the day with a cup of non fat yogurt with some raisins in it for extra fiber. Any suggestions would help. Im not new to dieting and supplements just havent paid any attention to it in a while and I was looking for some fresh advice from something other than an over advertised magazine. Thanks.
the website for the make at home protein bars is needtobuildmuscle.com..click on the store link then the protein link. the bars will be on the top row next to their whey protein. i have had the butterscotch,peanut butter, and the chocolate raspberry. the first two have raisins,cranberries and fine slices of almonds in them. the chocolate raspberry didn't. they all taste amazing! the bars will end up similar to a cliff bar type of product not like the normal protein bars that is like eating cement.i have a discount code that i will give to people that send me a pm... its good for 15% off. as far as whey goes i have come across two brands recently that taste amazing. the first one is needtobuildmuscle's protein they have a bunch of flavors and sell in either 1 or 5 pound bags. i have tried chocolate fudge, ice cream sandwich, cinnamon bun, chocolate peanut butter, rocky road and vanilla nut. they are all good tasting. they even also a sample pack so if you want to try a certain flavor you can do that also.
As for the other brand of protein it is Dymatize ISO-100. If you have been reading any muscle mag you have probably seen a couple of the Dymatize adds. I had both the gourmet berry and chocolate..now this protein is pretty expensive as far as protein goes but the 5 pound container seemed to have way more servings in it then the container said. all of these options are night and day difference to the Optimum Nutrition protein. when i started working out years ago that was the only protein i would use.
oh and if you want some more ideas for their bars in their forums they have different recipes for changing them up.
