    Protein powder doesn’t help with muscle recovery

    Watched a recent program that was conducted in Australia, and there were doctors etc monitoring muscle growth in a bunch of individuals.
    They had one group take protein powder , and the other group was given a placebo .
    They were all doing resistance training with weights .
    At the end of the testing , there was no improvement with muscle growth in the group taking protein supplements.
    If I remember correctly, everyone was given the same diet and closely monitored .

    After the research , they basically said to make sure you get protein in your diet, but supplements are unnecessary.

    My question is , I swear that I heal faster when I add protein powder to my diet . So you would assume this would be promoting muscle growth .
    I don’t like the way it constipates me though . I think I need add some fiber to my shakes.

    Anyone else notice improvements using protein powered, or any input on this subject ?
    Crazy people don’t know there crazy . I know I’m crazy, therefore I’m not crazy .
    Isn’t that crazy?

    Assuming you get enough protein from food then supplementing is not needed and will not be of any benefit in and of itself. Protein powder is just a processed protein product (usually from milk) and is not special.

    Hence supplements, they are a convenient way to boost total intake of complete proteins if you are struggle to get them from regular food, but if your diet is on point they aren't required.

    The stomach issues are probably from the protein you are using being primarily whey concentrate which can give people GI issues.

    whey protein helps in muscle recovery.. however, it won't if the protein quality is sub standard, which basically means that certain amino acids are denatured or not even present then this will not help in muscle recovery

    I think I need to go shopping and start finding the best foods for protein intake . Can’t eat salmon and chicken everyday though.

    I have tried 4 differant brands of protein powder at GNC and also bought some at the Bulk Barn, and gotten simular results with constipation .
    I need to buy some shredded wheat and put it in my blender with the juice and whey powder,as maybe that will help by providing fiber .
    I was lactose intolerant as a kid , and although things improved, I still have a little bit of issues with it .
    I had a bottle of amino acids from GNC , as I found it kept me awake at night, even if I took a few in the mornings with my shake .
    Somewhere I heard protein made from soy was not very good for you , but maybe my intestines will thank me if I switch to soy
    Crazy people don’t know there crazy . I know I’m crazy, therefore I’m not crazy .
    Isn’t that crazy?

    Try using a WPI instead of a blend or WPC. Might help if lactose issues are still there. That could explain your stomach issues for sure.

    Why couldn't you eat beef, pork, other fish, lamb, etc? In the context of a high protein diet of varied sources, protein is protein. Just meet your macro. We buy sides of beef and half to full pigs from 4H, FFA or local farms and stock up in the freezer. Just makes it easy with different cuts and different recipes.

    Not sure how aminos would keep you awake at night unless that product had a stimulant in it. It's like saying, I meat today and the amino acids from that breaking down are keeping me awake.

    Finally, the only way protein powder would help with recovery is if you weren't meeting your macro. If you were already and just using extra, it's in your head.

    Sorry, I should have been specific. Whey Protein Isolate versus a blend of proteins or whey protein concentrate. WPI has little to no lactose in it.

    Stevia extract goes through plenty of processing. Wouldn't call it natural.
