I've probably posted in the past, but I really enjoy Optimum Nutrition's Chocolate Whey Protein. I just received a new shipment from www.saveonsupplements.com, and they have the 'new and improved' formula that ON has been advertising. Supposedly the formula is even higher quality, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the taste is much better!! I thought that the old formula tasted fine, but the new stuff is significantly better. It is still just $25 for a 5 lb tub, so it's hard to beat for value, quality, and taste. 23g protein, 1.5g fat (0.5 sat), 3g carbs (1g sugar), 3.5g glutamine, 5g BCAAs. BV (Biological Value) is 100/100.

I try to have at least 2 of the shakes a day, but, I normally double up on each shake (2 scoops each) and use whole milk. Tastes great! Plus, who can beat the price. It's a hell of a lot cheaper than anything else I've seen.

Another good one to try is GlycerLean by designer Whey . It's expensive as hell as far as protein powders go but it's supposed to be that time release stuff .

I use 2.5 scoops per shake, twice a day (~60g X 2 = 120g/day from shakes; I weigh 220, so I eat the other 100g in regular food/milk/etc.). I've been eating cottage cheese at night since it is mainly casein (slow digesting protein).

Re: Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein

A few years have past and I am checking in, and using whey protein from US Sport. The Power Protein mixes easily and tastes great.

I use it in my morning smoothie, and then after I work out.

my morning smoothie is my breakfast with oatmeal, berries, spinach, vitamins, other fruit, and whey, in a base of water.

I feel great all morning long.

Re: Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein

Depends on what your goals are. The most important use for protein shakes is after workout replenishment IMO. I've also used them as breakfast replacement too. Or if you are really serious you take 3 a day, but I always opted for eating tuna or grilled chicken and 1 or 2 shakes
