New to this forum. Excited about joining.
I was wondering about whey protein specifically and had questions regarding which brand/flavor do you recommend? What recipes for good shakes?
My goal is to tone up - gain lean muscle and maybe lose a couple lbs while doing so.
One thing that makes me nervous to take protein is the possibility of myself "bulking up". I've done some research and have read that it is false, but would like to get actual women's experiences with drinking whey protein. Is there any possibility? I do 10 mins cardio a day to warm-up and then I go straight to the iron garden. I don't lift heavily as like I said, I am trying to tone. Also, I currently weight 120-121lbs, how much should my protein intake be a day?
I am planning to drink whey after workouts and maybe also for breakfast!
Please give me some insight as I am new to all of this Thanks in advance!

It also isn't necessary to drink Whey at all, if you get your protein through food there is no need for shakes.
I suggest you start with the Training program basic thread
And the Macros calculation thread
Most of the basics are explained in those threads and should get you on the right track as well as help with your questions.''Remember where you are posting (ie a body building forum) and the audience who is going to reply. If you just want someone to tell you you’re pretty, you’re slim/toned, ripped or correct in your craziness then please post somewhere else. '' ~Kjake55
