Leaving tomorrow for Myrtle Beach and travelling via air, but would like to bring my whey with me so I don't have to buy anything when I'm there. What's the best type of container/labeling system I can do so that they don't think I'm up to no good?

Label it as Whey and take the chance of telling the truth and not looking shady when they found out what it is?

Check it in your bags, should be ok, since you aren't going out of the country.

I always bring my supps on business trips, that includes NO Xplode, Whey, BCAA's, assorted vitamins, protein bars etc. Never had an issue, I have checked and carried on. Stop worrying.

Have you considered the fact that he might be at this location for multiple days, not know the area well enough to get to places that have high protein meals, and need whey to assist in hitting his daily protein macro without exceeding his caloric limits?

WHOAS!


Just saying, it's one thing to advocate whole foods but it's entirely different to make it seem like protein shakes do not offer a variety of benefits versus whole foods -- satiety notwithstanding. We're talking about protein shakes, I'm not pushing some BS MuscleTech propaganda over here, I'm simply saying that a protein shake or two is going to be inevitable in 95% of gym-goers lives, otherwise it wouldn't be the number one selling supplement on this website. How about everyone posting about whole foods get over that? It's a silly thing to preach if one asks about a shake or two.

No one who "preaches whole foods" cares or loses any sleep at night if people want to drink protein shakes. The reason whole foods instead of supplementation is brought up so often is because most supplement users believe there are special advantages to using their shakes.

We aren't saying "you phaggot be a man and get protein from meat". We're saying, "whole foods contain micronutrients beneficial to you health and supply adequate protein in and of themselves - I hope you haven't bought into the bodybuilding supplement hype that a protein in powder form is somehow benefiting you beyond food you probably already have in your kitchen."

As long as they know, I don't care if they rather a shake. That's great. You would be surprised all the bros that think whey is some super muscle-building-enhancement compound. I met/know a lot of silly and poorly educated people in real life who buy whey for this reason.

My simple point was no one asked if a shake was of any more benefit or advocated such. Yet the same few feel it absolutely necessary to mention whole foods are "better" than brotein shakes every time that coincidentally is usually irrelevant to the topic at hand. I eat whole foods. I also drink a shake 2 times a day. Why does anyone care?

Majority of the time it looks like this..

Poster: "how many calories do I need? I usually have 2-3 whey shakes"

Pug: "I suggest reading the stickies & fixing your post. Why do you use whey 2-3 times per day?"

Poster: "I wanna get huge/ripped"

Pug: "Oh, dear"


Like Chad said, if a person uses whey to "supplement" with their diet, I'm cool with it. I actually used whey yesterday to cook with. But there are some that think it's magical.

I think we all know and can agree that there is nothing wrong with taking Whey protein. The difference is knowing that we don't have to rely on it as a main protein source in our diets, and to use it when we see fit and not because we're paranoid our muscles will fall off if we don't.

Maybe so but it's more practical for me to eat meat. The only food I eat by myself is a snack around 4:00 pm. My wife comes home for lunch & we have dinner as a family so it's just easier for me to save the money I'd spend on whey and eat the meat that we have..

I don't think I'd benefit more from whey than I would from my current protein sources.

Serious time though. What's with the hate on the PP? Only straight dumbasses use just supplements to fuel their bodies. Common sense tells us whole foods > supplements, but supps are still a great tool if used properly and in moderation.

Protein powder is yummy. Chocolate PB flavoring with 90% of the calories coming from protein.... I'm in. I love meat, though. I could easily eat BWx2/3 in protein a day. A nice mix of the two is wonderful, but there is nothing wrong with getting most of your protein from either source, aside from the lack of variety.
