What Protein Powder Do I Like?
I'm commonly asked if I like protein powder. In short, yes I do like it for many people that I work with. I currently do not use a protein powder, but I did for about 30 years. Yes, that's a long time. In fact, if anything, I'm guilty of over using it. I consumed the same type of powder (whey isolate), daily, for those 3 decades. Sometimes I drink the protein several times a day. The result? I believe I developed a slight allergy to it. It's no big deal, to be be honest. And, I believe that at some point I'll be able to reintroduce it. An allergy or intolerance can happen when one over consumes a certain type of food, and it seems to be especially common with whey/dairy and eggs.
What's the result of my now consuming a whey shake? Nothing. I've realized that I have not lost one ounce of muscle, but I do eat plenty of protein daily (fish, beef, chicken, etc.).
So, I like protein powder because it's quick and easy. I like whey isolate because it's clean, has a good bioavailability, and most people tolerate and digest it well. Even those who are lactose intolerant may be able to use whey isolate (not concentrate). I also current like this brand - MuscleFeast, as I've used it myself, with good results. I like the fact that it's natural, processed properly, and even tastes good in my opinion. I'm not affiliated with this brand and there are other good ones out there.
