    Allergic to whey

    Hey guys i'm 18, and I weigh about 130lbs. I just started working out and I noticed im allergic to something in whey protein. I have read around and it looks like whey is the best out there. Im extremely bummed because im pretty skinny and i'm tired of it! So I went in the GNC store and the lady recommended egg protein instead. What do you guys recommend and why? Btw im going in for a doc's appointment soon to get an allergy test. Thanks !

    Why don't you just consume regular food rather than processed fast food sold as supplements?

    This and can use Hemp powder protein from time to time, with fruit etc (homemade) to help up the calories in between meals. Funny enough I was 130 at 5"8 and now just a bit over 180. I used weight gainers but that is like protein chocolate cakes. Best to make your own and carry them around with you in a backpack like I used to.

    You weigh 130 pounds. One reasonable size steak and you've consumed more protein than you need for the entire day.

    The steak I had for dinner least night contained over 175 grams of protein and the salmon I had for lunch today contained more than 125 grams of protein.

    Also, im looking for fast acting protein like whey and egg protein. Also please let me know what you used to make those chocolate cakes! My friends are recommending me weight gainers. And the reason i'm looking for fast acting proteins is because my dad used to lift and he said anything other than fast acting is a waste of money. Not sure what he means by it.

    I'm afraid your father simply doesn't know much about nutrition, as that makes absolutely no sense.

    How do I found out the protein count in my steaks? And he says you're supposed to drink a whey shake right after you workout because thats the fastest and best way to get results.

    Look, if you can't use the whey powder than that's fine. It's not a necessity. There's no real benefit to it besides the convenience, or if you are trying to fit more calories in but aren't hungry enough. You can easily get your 130g of protein from good sources like eggs, chicken, tuna, other fish, beef, and dairy products if you can stomach them; milk, yogurt, etc. Whey protein is the protein that is in milk. The powder is a removed, processed version of it.

    Meal timing doesn't matter and having a preworkout or postworkout shake will not improve gains.
    I pick things up and put them down.

    Hemp protein, fruit, rice dream, a little milk, olive or flax seed oil. You can also add nut butters for fats/calories. I add other things too but that is a calorie gainer.

    How do postworkout shakes not help? Your muscles begin to eat themselves if you dont "feed" them after you workout right?

    Protein synthesis works up to 24hours (or was it 48).

    You could drink a shake 10secs after your workout or two hours and still reap the same benefits.

    At 130lbs, your lean muscle mass is probably around 115ish, so you realistically only need 115g of protein in which is easy to achieve on a daily basis.

    Whey, casein, egg, soy and all kinds of processed powder protein is just a supplement if you can't achieve 115g.

    Btw, you should do a manual self brainwash and clear all the bullcrap you heard from the media and your dad because it's nothing else but broscience, marketing strategies and lies.
