    when we were young they didn't HAVE whey protein!.......we had to eat raw eggs for our protein....and we got salmonella poisoning and threw our guts up every day.....and we'd fart ourselves out of the house, and had to sleep outside in the snow!...with no blanket or snuggie!!!

    not necessarily....gains are not perpetual like that....and once you reach a certain genetic potential naturally you will need more and more roids to push the limits, not just PH's and natural stuff. You can do well naturally and with PH's....but not 5-9 and 250.

    idk if your taking BCAAs, but the prices on those are about to go up as well. this has been expected for a long time now. i had a conversation with the owner of the supplement shop i go to a while back and he explained it all. something about the prices in China and something about cows. idk lol

    that is exactly what happens, you have to start focusing on your conditioning, being as lean as possible....and you can always turn to the roids as well. Its an individual choice at that point. But the PH's and designers these days can help you push your "natural" limit although many will say that is not natural of course.....

    Nothing new about this. Wholesale prices have steadily been going up for a while and there's no sign of it changing. In fact, it will keep going up.

    That's why I stock up during sales whenever I can and currently have probably close to 100lbs of protein hoarded away.

    Watch for sales and get it whenever you can. I'd rely even more on whole food if it wasn't more expensive/less convenient. With whey prices climbing, though, opting for cans of tuna is gonna end up being cheaper, again, though.

    Good point, man.

    I'm such a nerd that I also multiply the amount of protein per serving by the number of servings and then compare the total amount of protein versus the price. A lot of the cheaper proteins only have 18g per scoop or sometimes less (on top of sometimes being just concentrate).

    exactly, i dont care how much bullsh!t is in there. i want quality. now i only buy iso but once in a while i go whey blend.

    the scoup size is also a good thing to pay attetion to, esp when crunching numbers on servings, etc. if one guy has 26g scoup, the other 18g.....thats 30% less. something most prolly wouldnt put into the equation.


    Now, lately, i go whey iso, bcaa, and muscle replenisher (post wo carb/pro drink). just 1 iso skake a day, 1 post WO drink, 3 - 12-15g BCAA drinks ED.

    80 bucks for isopure 8lb size. 52 servings of 50 grams isolate. If you use it PWO only that's like 3 1/2 months. Not bad since its isolate. I can eat 90% of the remainder from food. Or some egg powder non-WO mornings.

    Exactly bro. I hit sales up like crazy for food. Costco does wonders, then some whey to build muscle on top of it

    I'll solve this problem right now: go your local grocery store and buy a prepared roasted chicken; Should be 7-8$$ and can last you a 1-3 days depending on how you eat it... Maybe even 4.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Those chickens are good, assloads of protein.....I eat a half of one at a time, that is like 70-80 grams protein minimum...a whole chicken is a bit much for me. But its pretty easy to get 200-240 grams of protein from food alone if you make even a small effort. You just gotta make the right choices for protein sources. Only reason I ever really need protein powders is for PWO or morning time when I first wake up and am not hungry/in a rush.
