    Default Protein

    What do you guys normally prefer for a bulk protein? I really need to order some and I was considering straying from the 100% GS path to try something new. Open to any suggestions, especially if you have had some good personal experience. (All prices/info is from bb.com)

    This is what I am currently considering:

    XF Ultra Peptide Whey - 5lbs @ $44.99 (71 servings)
    Gaspari Myofusion - 5lbs @ $38.89 (approx 63 servings)
    GS 100% - 5lbs @ $42.99 (74 servings)
    BSN Syntha-6 - 5lbs @ $39.99 (52 servings)
    AllTheWhey Whey - 5lbs @ $34.99 (80 servings)
    LG Lipotropic - 5lbs @ $29.99 (69 servings)

    AllMax Isoflex - 5lbs @ $59.99 (75 servings) - why so much $$ anyone?


    Also, what do you guys think of these for a once a day mass gainer?

    Optimum Pro Complex Gainer - 10.16lbs (28 servings) - $57.89
    650cal - 8g fat/85g carb(only 4g sugar)/60g protein
    Universal Real Gains - 10.6lbs (31 servings) - $53.99
    618 cal - 5g fat/89g carb(7g sugar)/54g protein

    Any other suggestions?


    Thanks!

    Although it may only help a little, if you're interested in XF whey protein, check out www.blackstarlabs.com (hopefully I can post links here as the place only sells XF stuff). They have their Big Hugeness sale going on where you can get 4 tubs of XF whey for 124.00 (plus shipping). It works out to $31 a tub and I think with shipping for me it was like 34-35 a tub. Not too bad and it is a really great tasting protein. I've got 3 tubs of myo and 4 tubs of that right now so I'm stacked at the moment for protein, but once they're all gone I might look into Muscle Gauge Nutrition (same as AllTheWay from what I've read) and make sure I like those flavors. Ebay has 25lbs of the blend for around $115 and $135 for the isolate. Not bad prices if you know you like the flavor.

    So I just placed an order from that blackstarlabs website, but there ordering process seems really odd, and the confirmation emails weren't very comforting either. I have never ordered from them before, so this is a little new to me, is their ordering process always so minimal(as far as giving ME as little info on my order as possible)?

    Do NOT buy LG liptropic! i bought a 5 pound jug of chocolate over a year ago and i still have a little less than half! i only use it when i have no protein and no money. Its gross.

    Lately i only buy protein from wheycheap or whey2buy. 2 weeks ago i got a 2 pounder of ON 100% whey for $8

    Never tried the strawberry. On my order I ended up with 2 tubs of Choc PB (which really tastes like PB Choc, more PB tasting then choc) 1 tub of Mocha, and 1 tub of Lemonade (because of all the hype behind it). They're all awesome. Mocha is really nice, especially in the morning. Lemonade is really good for a fruit flavored protein, just a nice change.

    Also, the order process is a little different, but I got my stuff within a few days of ordering it, actually faster then when I ordered off another larger supp site. Plus, since I had an order over $75 (or maybe more, I don't remember) I got a free t-shirt. It may be a dumb perk, but I liked it. It's a nice shirt, just kind of tight as they sent a large. I don't think you'll be disappointed with it at all.

    What flavors did you end up getting?

    Awesome thanks, I was unaware of whey2buy so thats cool to know about. I purchased the UP 2.0 from blackstarlabs, 12lbs for 100$ shipping included, and they emailed me back, Dave from blackstarlabs was actually very helpful.

    I've also heard great things about Strawberry UP 2.0. I ended up grabbing a 2 lb bottle of Choc PB (go figure) and it's pretty tasty. I do like the straight whey PB Choc a bit better though.

    I definitely agree. I looked at the profile for lipotropic, price, and servings and thought it was a deal. But that taste is horrible. I can stand most products but good lord this is nasty. I would wait and buy from Wheycheap bc they always have protein powders on their with great deals. If not that, look at Dymatize Elite Gourmet. Its a protein blend(which always tops) and tastes good

    First things, first. All proteins are not created equal...... All wheys are not the same. How they are filtered makes a difference. When you consume it makes a difference.

    Long story short. Get some Optimum Nutrition Whey Gold Standard. Take it immediately after workout, when your body is acting like a sponge.
    Current Stack: White Flood, Con-Cret, GlycerGrow, Xtend, X-Factor, OxiOmega fish oil, AST Multi Pro 32X, Milk Thistle, Dymatize Elite protein.

    Scivation is a little "thicker" in texture than other protein shakes, which I like, but a lot of my fellow bb'ers don't. So, if "good" includes taste/texture, try it an make your own decision.

    If you are looking for good, basic, inexpensive protein, you might want to give All The Whey a try, as others have suggested. Lots of interesting flavors that are well regarded, "thinner" than Scivation, and just as effective.

    ON is really good, having more isolate and hydrolyzed whey than other brands, making it a good choice for post-workout. Their new HydroWhey appears to take bioavailability to the next level, and while expensive, does taste pretty good and works great post-workout. If you are looking for a good post-workout product, don't forget CL's Golden Gains. It's protein and so much more..my personal post-workout favorite.

    Good luck.

    I tend to like EAS Premium Protein from costco or EAS 100% Whey from sams. The chocolate is good but the vanilla mixed with too many little bubbles in it and it's not that great.

    For both of those you can buy a 6lb bag for about $30 and there's approx 70 servings in each and the protein per serving is 27 grams. no sugar, also.
