I am new to this forum.
I am body building Since 8 months ,Eating 2 meals is only
taking 5g creatine per day
I am cut
and I wondering if whey protein would help me lose weight or would it just bloat me and make me look fatter?
I want some of the bigness but I am still afraid to eat whey protein because contains Calories from Fat,Cholesterol and Sugars ?
Does he increase the body fat ?

First, eating 2 meals is a sure way to bloat or lose muscle.
Effective eating for lean mass is 5-8 small meals per day.
These help keep your metabolism going and keep nutrients in the body to 'feed the muscles'
Whey Proteins are usually too fast absorbing for anything but directly after a workout.
I would concentrate on MRP's (meal replacments)
Labrada, MetRX, EAS, IronTek all make a "light" version of their MRP's specifically for women.
You will never be able to gain much, if any on 2 meals.
AND it will become harder and harder to stay cut without starving yourself.
Try 2 MRP's, 2 'real meals' and one or two 'light snacks' of fruit or something during the day, get the meal count up to about 5.
Then you will be able to gradually increase the calories and add some lean mass, which in turn, will help keep you cut.
Also, shoot for a MINIMUM of 3-5 liters of WATER per day.

You MUST EAT TO GROW lean mass
Gaining lean mass is the KEY to keeping off the fat.
If you are 7%BF you are almost TOO lean and trying to maintain that promotes unhealthy eating habit.... like ummm 2 meals a day???
The key is the number of meals and just exceeding your caloric 'burn' by about 10%. This way you can grow without 'porking'.
Like I said, 100% whey is NOT the best for all around, whey is great for right after lifting, but MRP's with a blend of fast and slow absorbing proteins are best for sustained energy and keeping the nutrient level steady.
OK Here's MY Kitchen Counter, yes I'm a "PROTEIN ADDICT"
I was taking shots, but now I'm on the patch :D I'm searching for a support group :p

As long as you limit it to when it can be utilized, IE right after a workout, it should not increase fat. Unless, of course, you are mixing it in a vat of ice cream :rolleyes:
