    Check up on protein factory. So far I have not found better quality and better pricing than them. For the record I enjoyed LG sconce protein very much. Just saying.

    Well, the cleanest protein source would be hydrolysate. But the price tag is just horrible so its not worth it IMO. I like Myofusion and use it most of the time.

    gold standard tastes really good, not sure what ur price range is but i get a 10 pound bag every few months for between 80-100 bucks, best to shop around look at what sites have sales going on at the time, i tend to use boddybuilding.com and vitacost.com

    has anyone seen any difference in fat loss while using protein with bcaas or bcaas on the side? or if youve seen differences in both which one worked better?

    i dont think that bcaas directly relate to fat loss, i do know that bcaas help slow down the accumulation of fat cells on your body, but bcaas are gona help you recover more quickly from your workouts so you can hit it just as hard the next day with out your soreness holding you back

    Are you trying to keep your carbs low? If so, Species Isolyze is pretty darn good in vanilla peanut butter. If carbs aren't a concern then trutein, Gaspari myofusion, or iforce protean (red velvet is awesome)

    Look into Beverly International Ultimate Muscle Protein.

    You will see minimal progress supplementing with BCAAs vs. not. It is going to be your ultimate overall caloric-intake/macros that determine the success of your cut.

    They've had some quality control issues in the past. Maybe they've gotten it straightened out....

    I felt the same way about lipotropic protein. I think you might be interested in VPX SRO protein. I like the Graham Cracker flavor and it has no carbs or fat.

    surely not syntha, for cutting.
    altho, a powder shouldn't be the thing you focus on when cutting.
    much more important is your overall caloric intake, and macro ingestion.
    ie - if the rest of your diet was suitable, then you could prolly use syntha in a cut just fine.

    too much is made of specific brand when cutting.
    simply look for one with low fat, low carbs, and quality protein complex.

    again - kinda goes in line with above reply.
    if you are using bcaas and the rest of your diet is in line, that's a great recipe for lean muscle building.

    I vote Isopure Whey Isolate (50 grams protein and no carbs or fat per 2 scoops).... also bulk Luecine. Both are low cal with no carbs or fat in them, just protein/BCAA, and the are the highest of quality. This should all be of concern if dieting/cutting...most of the "protein powders" have WAY too many carbs in them... Isopure is VERY expensive though, which is a drawback. I use it PWO only at 2 scoops (also 25g Leucine separately), then use something else on off days. Egg protein with no carbs added, or something comparable.

    Is that American Pure Whey or something else? I ask because someone found that that brand of whey contained only 15% of advertised protein (LOL)...

    They used a bradford assay to measure protein amounts, and I know bradford assays are incredibly easy to conduct. I do them all the time, at least on a weekly basis.

    ya, they say you get what you pay for, i mean looking at the label it looks ok but for a 10 pound bag for 60 bucks i kinda get the feeling something is not right with it, like i was buying some cheap protein from walmart lol

    isopure is expensive, you are right..
    however, not "best quality" by any means my friend.
    old-school ion-exchange isolate has srs drawbacks. the bcaa content is high at the expense of nutritive properties of whey.
    why they continue to try to price that powder high when it is produced with first generation technology is beyond me.

    I agree.

    Unless you are on a ketogenic diet, picking a protein based on a 2g carb variation is pretty dumb. I opt for blends, personally.

    Are you lactose intolerant? I can't justify spending extra money on an isolate when blends are cheaper, taste better, and are likely superior to isolate for promoting a net anabolic environment.

    Im going to be honest with the OP.

    The answer is FOOD

    Nothing satiates you like REAL FOOD

    I gave up p-shakes awhile ago and never felt better and never lost an OUNCE of muscle.

    I also switched from 275 grams of protein including shakes to 175-225 (depends on the day) of FOOD based and I look better, feel better and Im not getting scammed anymore either.

    Im so done with the the hyped up P-shake marketing propaganda (AND the hyped up bro-science of needing ALL this protein to grow). It's ALL GARBAGE!

    Look. even a cheap azz can of tuna only takes 10 second to inhale and virtually ALL protein so save me the "i want something fast business"

    I got peeled for my summer vacation on lean meats and veggies with healthy fats. All real food.

    MOST supps are over-rated

    Good luck - just an OLD WISE vet trying to help you out

    Yeah get bloated from most proteins....isolate and egg white protein seem to work better for me. But not sure why a whey blend is superior to isolate? this is news to me.

    I didn't say a whey blend, rather a blend of different proteins (milk protein, whey, casein, egg, soy, etc).

    Ok...i take the isolate PWO only on WO days only. Otherwise its whole food or egg protein in the morning in a rush...isolate seemed to be the best choice...good quality whey and fast acting.

    The speed of action is irrelevant unless fasted for over 24 hours. There is no anabolic window.
