Affordable Whey Protein?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

I used to get EAS whey protein 5lbs for like 30 dollars from sams club. However, I know longer go to Sam's club and I can't find whey protein for that price anywhere else.

 

I'm not looking for anything fancy, just something that is reputable and will get the job done. I'll think about the pricier proteins when I can afford it and when I get to a certain level.

So basically I'm asking, Can you guys direct me to sites where I can get decent whey protein(5lbs) for cheap? Preferably less than 30 dollars per 5lbs.
Feel free to PM if you have to...
Thanks!

Idk about the price point but I know Isopure is what I use now and I have tried Way to many types... It has the perfect ratio of carbs to protein though and I believe its like 35g per serving with like 180 or so calories. You should try it, you can get it in small and large sizes.

Woah $6/lb. My mom works at a dairy wholesaler I use 100 lb bags of whey as free fertilizer

Yeah, they throw some "proprietary" ingredients and an intense name and charge like $35+ a bag...

I would stay away from muscle milk products at all costs... IMO some of the worst stuff you can get, if you actually read the label on the stuff It has a crazy amount of calories, carbs, and a lot of fat. If you are just trying to gain mass then use it but if you are trying to gain lean muscle mass I would look for one without all the extra stuff (fat, carbs, etc.) and get one with a protein to calorie ratio of around 1 to 4.

Not true regarding the whey they sell at Costco. I've been using it for quite some time as my "basic" protein. (I also use Dymatize XE) It has almost no carbs and no sugar. The calories are almost exclusively from the protein itself.

Its this one:
350

They have it in chocolate and vanilla and tastes and feels better that ON's whey.

myofusion - probably the best tasting in water
trutein - best blend IMO
scivation - good if you're looking for protein with basically no carbs

I used to go with ON from BB.com but I stumbled on this brand at WalMart. Much cheaper and tastes pretty good too!
