This.

I think some of you think supplements are some magic bullet.

Wait, so are you saying protein powder is just a waste of money if we eat enough food that's protein rich? What about the faster digestion and absorbing rates of whey?

I'm saying that you are not at a level or preparing for an event that eating something before and after your training would not solve your nutrition requirement.

What do you think Whey will do that eating a steak 3h before your training and 1h after won't already do? If you wont eat hours after your training, sure, maybe you need some. But I doubt it.

You can check Alan Aragorn for detailed stuff. He's pretty knowledgeable on that topic.

You're missing the point. The point is there's no reason not to eat the yolk in your eggs. It won't make your cholestrol higher. Which the source you linked to also says..

 

Why would faster digestion rate matter? As I mentioned there may be some "window of opportunity" after you've worked out, but science isn't really clear on this, and even if there is an increased effect, it's minimal. From the statements you make it sounds like you have a lot of other things you should worry about first. Not meaning to be too harsh, but you really lack some general knowledge when it comes to lifting and nutrition. I'm not saying I'm a major expert, but some of your comments are.. not very informed.

 

Edit: Just saw Virus' comment above. Do as he says and pick up Alan Aragon's Girth Control or something.

The effect is negligible. If your diet already contains enough protein you shouldn't notice any difference by switching sources from food to protein powder.

Take it if it makes life more convenient, but it won't make gains come faster (again, unless you aren't getting enough protein to start with). I'd personally much rather eat my protein, especially on a cut.

The whole point of the protein supplements is to supplement your diet if you don't get enough protein.

Tbh I just use it because it's cheap and easy to carry with you compared to other protein sources.

I like powder because I can mix it in things that are more portable. I don't really have access to a kitchen for the time being and it's pretty much the best I can do to ensure that I get atleast 40-50 grams every day not counting food.

Protein powder is convenience, that alone makes it worthwhile to me.

post #52390 of 57266

I made no comment on it not being convenient. My point was simply, if you get the target protein goal through your food, you don't need a protein shake.

Yes.

@venividivicibj I wasn't responding to you, just chiming in.

post #52394 of 57266

FWIW I use protein powder twice a day, just saying it isn't necessary if you have you met your macros.
