    Any recommendations for post work RTD containing mostly whey isolate and carbs?

    I like RTDs for their convenience and I am willing to pay more for that. My personal preference.

    I would like to find one for post workout that is mostly or all whey isolate, say 25-50g, and also has carbs, say 10-25g.

    One that I've taken in the past was Isopure Original but I can't seem to find them in RTDs. I bought the individual serving packets years ago but they don't seem to be made anymore.

    All product suggestions are welcomed.
    I would procrastinate... but I keep putting it off.

    It doesn't matter. Either way it's just food. Couple of things:
    1) Nutrient timing isn't relevant to the vast majority of people. Meet macros and caloric goals daily and you'll be fine.
    2) There is no magic, short-term window that you need to address with protein nor carbs. Also, see point 1. If you're hungry, eat something. If you're not, eat when you're hungry. Meet macros and caloric goals before bed each day.
    3) Type of protein doesn't really matter (outside of collagen). Protein is protein in the context of a high protein diet of varied sources. Pick something you like the taste and fits your budget.

    It doesn't really matter at the end of the day with those in particular. The total amount does.

    The correct answer to your question is that you don't need one. If you really want one, the type of protein doesn't matter. Pick one that fits your budget and you like the taste...that's it.

    I wish it didn't matter what type of protein I take and when I take it but I'm a hardgainer, ectomorph body type. I can't just take anything and expect results unfortunately. It seems as though alot of people in this forum can gain muscle quickly and easily. Maybe I posted this on the wrong site. Every time I ask a question here, almost everyone quickly tells me I'm wrong and they never answer the actual question.

    Maybe answer like this instead... "I think postworkout RTDs are waste of money and no one needs them, but if I did use them, Brand X would be the one."

    No you're not. Somatotypes are bunk. Realize that these were used part of a theory that body types dictated psychological disposition and temperament that was debunked nearly 50 years ago now. It was basically stereotyping.

    You're a guy that doesn't eat enough in general. It has zero to do with your protein type or timing. In the context of a high protein diet of varied sources, protein is protein.

    Yes you can. If we're talking about hypertrophy, it is driven by a caloric surplus to TDEE while meeting your macros, weight training in a progressive manner and getting rest. Your TDEE may be higher than mine, but the formula is still the same. Again, type of protein and timing (post-workout) aren't the issue. Lack of calories is your problem. You can use protein at any time, you DO NOT need to slam a shake or protein or food right after you workout. Eat when convenient or you're hungry, but meet macros and caloric goals by the end of the day.

    Considering that many of us have been training for decades and made the same mistakes you're making now I think you're making excuses as to your lack of education and/or amount of ignorance. You can argue with these people that are telling you you're wrong because you may be so (in this case you are wrong), or you can learn something and change.

    They may not be answering your question because it's the wrong question. I did answer your question. If you want an RTD, pick one that you like the taste and fits your budget and macros. Type of protein doesn't matter. If you're not at a surplus to TDEE calorically, the type of protein doesn't matter at all. Protein doesn't make you grow. It's part of the equation, but calories is what makes you grow. You don't grow because you don't eat enough.

    I did say that. Brand doesn't matter. Protein type doesn't matter. Timing doesn't matter for the vast majority of people.

    I can't tell you what you will think subjectively tastes better. I can't tell you when you're going to be hungry. I can't tell you when will be convenient for you to eat. You're going to need to try different RTDs if you need the help meeting your macro, or you can just buy protein powder, scoop it into a shaker, bring a bottle of water and mix and shake when convenient.

    Or, you can just eat and meet your macro. It's just powdered or liquid food, not magic muscle fertilizer.

    Isolates are intended for individuals with issues with lactose. I find blends to be cheaper and IMO superior. Just buy a Monster Milk or RTD51 by Met-RX if you want something that's of high caloric value. As far as the carbs go just grab a handful of gummys. That's what I do after a lift as I wait for my meals to prep.
    Supplement a good diet: don't diet on supplements.

    ^^ this.

    You came to the right forum. The correct answer isn't always the one you're wanting to see back. I suggested Fairlife because for an RTD with carbs, its perfect IMO. But with you adding more context through these posts, what Lucia is telling you is 100% correct.
