    Question Whey Protein - Ok during pregnancy?

    Hey ladies!!

    I am a newbie, not to weightlifting, but to the forum. I am on pregnancy #3 in the past 3 years and I am working hard right now to maintain my muscle mass and get cardio in, in the hopes after delivery my body will get back a little quicker!

    Does anyone have any experience with whey protein during pregnancy? I used BSN Dessert Whey, but noticed a disclaimer stating not for use by pregnant or breast feeding women.

    Any ideas or suggestions? There seems to be a lot of conflicting info out there on it.

    protein supplementation is ideal for pregnany woman. the protein source may be the only issue. may want to look into soy and/or egg sources. but overall, protein supplements are fine.

    Thank you, thank you!!! I think it is more a issue staying with something that is 100% whey and avoiding the supplements.

    100% Whey is the #1 selling supplement on bb.com. Would be hard to avoid.

    The whey is not the problem, the synthetic additives are.

    Look for the natural version of Optimum Nutrition's whey products. They still taste good but don't have artificial flavors/colors/sweeteners. Otherwise, you might have to look at pricier premium or organic options. Douglas Labs is based in Pittsburgh, but their stuff is only available through health care professionals.

    Also might be worth looking at casein proteins, as you can buy those absolutely plain and flavour them yourself. As it is slow release, it might suit you better anyway. Changes in blood sugar level can result in puke episodes.

    Ask your doctor! He or she is the only one who really knows your health and body and is in a position to give an educated and professional opinion. Be 100% honest with him or her on your exercise routine and the protein or other supps you want to take.

    Sorry, not sure I agree with this one. Most doctors are not well informed about sports nutrition and have no idea of the difference between whey and casein, for instance, never mind which is more suitable for a pregnant woman. Some of the advice I've heard doctors giving is hair-raising.

    If you are really worried, find a specialist in the area.

    If my OB was that clueless, I'd find a new OB (rather than ask rando online strangers without any medical degree).

    You just need to make sure you are taking it from a "clean" source. No artificial sweeteners, minimal preservatives and artifical flavourings. You may have to hunt around but I certainly wouldn't be taking anything else whilst pregnant COngratulations btw

    I agree. I already asked my doctor, and the answer I received was pretty vague and generic. I am not sure I got any valuable information from him at all

    What did your doctor actually tell you? Like ives said, it benefits you if you give the doc ALL information.

    The necessity of protein supplements is over stated, just like "I need whey"/"No I need casein".

    Have a nutritionist+pharmacist retrieve the ingredient data for some protein supplements (make them add some notes for your doctor, which your is likely to fully understand), take it to your OB and ask which one is 100% safe.

    The most I'd take from these forums is supplement flavor reviews.

    Not at all....I appreciate the response. I agree with you. I have friends in the medical field and they openly admit they have NO idea when it comes to supplements. They could give you advice all day long on what to eat, but as far as supps they are clueless. I only have about 18 weeks left so I may just keep my protein coming from food sources and forget about any supplements for now until the baby arrives.

    Just on that topic, when you are breastfeeding, if you run into problems, go to a lactation consultation, whether it is a La Leche League leader or other specialist. Most family doctors have NO clue about breastfeeding, and only ever see it when it goes wrong, so they don't trust it. My local doctor rings me up when he gets questions about breastfeeding!

    'Most' people on bb.com are overweight/underweight and have no idea what they are talking about.
    No one with ANY kind of intelligence will blindly trust a doctor's advice. And if you pick a doctor with the bare minimum credentials, ask zero questions during treatment etc etc, you might as well seek advice on these forums and take what's coming.

    How recently have you been through medical school? On a difficulty scale out of 10, how high would you rank nutrition?

    Originally Posted by DistinctChoice View Post

    'Most' people are too lazy to effectively take advantage of quality nutritional information. The small % of people actually involved in activity that would benefit from high end nutritional consultation are either A)motivated enough to acquire the knowledge themselves B)can justify the expense of hiring such a specialist.
    Everybody else can find most of what they need to know....right on the internet, free of charge. On the other hand, you cannot learn how to reattach a limb via Google. A much more pressing situation than casein vs whey.

    Pretty sure providing 'health care' to unhealthy people who are at 'dis-ease' by default means they know a thing or two about health.

    How often do you find someone who is healthy by complete accident? Just from a typical lifestyle.
    Likely an unhealthy person realizes they cannot go up a flight of stairs without having a heart attack, a doctor says "According to my charts you are lazy fatso. Also the data from my charts comes from machines that are unavailable to non-MD holding individuals."

    Adhering to the doctor's recommendations is likely to get your back to a normal level of health. Now healthy people are the ones who can inquire about dropping their 100m sprint time, increasing their VO2 max to superhuman or dropping their body fat to low single digits for some kind of fitness competition.

    And I agree with you, that the above individuals would not necessarily receive the best information from a typical doctor, but it would be ridiculous to think that those people would go there.

    N.B. My family doctor reattached my father's toe (severed by a forklift), supplemented the first set of mass building/nutrition information I learn from the internet and treated my early sport/weight lifting injuries.
    You need to find an ex-athlete, weight training, ladies' man doctor like I have. Combined with the mentality of a sensible adult and you are equipped to live a healthy life.

    No one with ANY kind of intelligence will blindly trust a doctor's advice. And if you pick a doctor with the bare minimum credentials, ask zero questions during treatment etc etc, you might as well seek advice on these forums and take what's coming.


    How recently have you been through medical school? On a difficulty scale out of 10, how high would you rank nutrition?


    'Most' people are too lazy to effectively take advantage of quality nutritional information. The small % of people actually involved in activity that would benefit from high end nutritional consultation are either A)motivated enough to acquire the knowledge themselves B)can justify the expense of hiring such a specialist.
    Everybody else can find most of what they need to know....right on the internet, free of charge. On the other hand, you cannot learn how to reattach a limb via Google. A much more pressing situation than casein vs whey.


    Pretty sure providing 'health care' to unhealthy people who are at 'dis-ease' by default means they know a thing or two about health.


    How often do you find someone who is healthy by complete accident? Just from a typical lifestyle.
    Likely an unhealthy person realizes they cannot go up a flight of stairs without having a heart attack, a doctor says "According to my charts you are lazy fatso. Also the data from my charts comes from machines that are unavailable to non-MD holding individuals."

    Adhering to the doctor's recommendations is likely to get your back to a normal level of health. Now healthy people are the ones who can inquire about dropping their 100m sprint time, increasing their VO2 max to superhuman or dropping their body fat to low single digits for some kind of fitness competition.

    Back about ten years ago, after much research, I chose NOT to attend medical school, chose chiropractic school instead, for the very reason that a medical education doesn't give you the knowledge and tools to get people truly healthy. Chiropractic school can, partly because nutrition and exercise are actually covered adequately in the curriculum. Before you think about making an ill-informed comment about back pain, bone-cracking, or "real" doctors or whatever else you want, do your homework on the curriculum hours spent for chiropractic school vs. medical school,and also what chiropractic is really about. The nutrition is not difficult, it's probably a 5/10, but if you're actually asking how much you learn, I'd say medical school is 1/10, while the core chiropractic curriculum is 6/10 and electives can bring you to probably 8/10 in terms of what there is to know. BTW, I graduated in 2004, and I do save lives everyday with my knowledge, expertise and abilities. So, the advice I provide is that of a doctor.

    Nutrition/exercise, not particularly difficult which is why 'adequate covering' in a curriculum is sufficient to make someone relatively knowledgeable on the topics. But who are the pinnacle of exercise/nutrition wisdom? See above.

    Pre-med? I might give you the benefit of the doubt and presume you have pre-acceptance, however if you don't have the acceptance letter (like the ones I received from Boston U., Tulane and U of MI), it's the equivalent of playing basketball at the YMCA and saying that you are pre-NBA.

    You seem angry and sad all at the same time, but not sad in an emotional way. You're not worth my time, so I'll only leave you with this:

    Let me know when you want to start comparing body counts of lives lost under the hands of the medical profession versus the chiropractic profession.

    I'm done.

    I never said I was pre-med, I used an example of a pre-med student simply taking electives that have future value, instead of easy useless classes.

    Pre-Med-->Med school.
    NBA on the other hand, High School-->College ball-->NBA. But unlike a career in medicine, you can skip the 'pre-med' step of basketball and go straight from high school to pro.
    So that was a horrible decision using the NBA to make your point.

    I'll go to a psychologist, and get back to you. However my chiropractor is a very insightful man so I might just talk to him while he gets me truly healthy.
    Hopefully I'll remember to mention you during my session, so we can get to the root of your hatred of medical doctors

    Are we including visits by people with life threatening conditions?

    Chiropractors do not work in emergency rooms, treating people with gun shot wounds, burns or severed limbs. They don't do invasive surgery to remove tumors.
    The people chiropractors generally deal with, casually stroll into their offices.

    So only an idiot would be be surprised that more people die under the care of medical doctors vs chiropractors. That fact that this was your closing statement would upset even my chiropractor, the magical all curing sorcerer that he is.


    I too am done *cry*. So I'll leave you with this.

    Agreed, any supps you take whether your pregnant or not, should be from a clean source. consumer reports found that many popular protien powders had *acceptable* (rated by FDA) amounts of heavy metals.

    Im pregenant with my second, and my husband pointed out this particular article to me. we both decided its best that I EAT my protien and increase my soy and cows milk...both during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

    Lima beans contain arsenic as well, do you tell people that lima beans are also poisonous? Or is that not headline worthy like this "new" protein powder revelation?

    If you were eating lima beans as often as most drink thier protien, then yes...especially if one is pregnant. Its not a matter of "new" revelation, but rather insight of the ingredients not listed on the container.
    Pregnant women are also advised to stay away from certian fish because of there mercury levels, which can be poisonous to a fetus.

    It's good to try to eat the best quality food you can, but don't get paranoid. The female body has been designed to ensure that the baby gets the best of whatever is going, and if the mother eats something which is not good, she's likely to puke it all out.

    During my first pregnancy, I puked every time I ate ordinary cabbage, but I had no problem with organic cabbage. I found out later that regular cabbage gets a huge amount of pesticide spray.
    65% fat, 30% protein, 5% carbs = keto.

    Yes. Each and every batch of Allmax Proteins are lab tested. For purity, cleanliness (contaminants) and quality.

    Sourced from high quality sources (USA, Canada, and New Zeland).

    Tastes and mix great.

    We have ALLWHEY. Which is a blended protein. Isoflex which is a 100% Pure Whey Isolate. If you are worried about sweetners and whatnot we also have IsoNatural. Which is just plain 100% natural whey protein isolate.

    Top notch stuff!

    Im clearly late to this thread but, as an ex lactation counselor I will say that most ob's have NO IDEA about breastfeeding and supplements. Ob's are glorified surgeons, and pediatricians are also not the best to ask breastfeeding advice. neither of them has the proper training, your better off asking a lactation consultant or counselor. You can always check out kellymom.com to see what is and isn't excreted into breast milk. Medication and mothers milk is a great book to have on hand for all nursing moms as well for a quick reference. For the most part, your body knows what baby should and should not have and will "filter" out the bad. (not puke it out that is a load of bunk) but some things do leach into breast milk that baby should not have and sadly many of those things are found in supplements. Hemp protein is safe.
