    Cool Post Workout Plant Protein


    Hi, so I like to occasionally rotate my foods so I don't eat the same thing all the time. I just went through a 5 pound tub of whey protein Isolate and I wanted a little bit of a temporarily change. Can you guys suggest a good solid plant protein that doesn't taste like crap that I can take post workout?? Thanks!!

    Gemma pea isolate. Digest faster than whey and is 96 or 97 bioavailability. Pretty clean taste from true protein I think.

    What's wrong with food? I mean assuming that all of us here know and agree Protein is just a Macronutrient and its better from real food, of course haha.

    How does it taste and what flavors are good?? Also is it a complete protein, because I know many plant proteins aren't complete proteins

    Explain what do you mean by "complete" protein...because that would be based upon micro-nutrient and amino-acid value/content...and that you only get the best of it out of real whole meals...or Ultra Peptide, but I am against the compulsive need for powders.

    Complete protein means it contains high amounts of all essential amino acids. And I've noticed a huge difference when I have a post workout shake before dinner instead of eating right after a workout. Its not just BS it definately adds more mass!!

    It is called a Leucine spike in the blood...buy Bulk Leucine and you will get the same effect, just have anywhere from 10-15g of Leucine before a meal and you can thus help in protein absorption rates.

    3-5g will suffice. That's all that is needed to kickstart protein synthesis.

    I still have so much to learn hehe, but yes as Rodja said, a good amount of Leucine like 5g helps with Protein Synthesis .

    I like to do 10g per shot of leucine, but every once in a while 5g. I won't say how much I take centered around my WO or it will cause a disruption LMFAO

    I'm having trouble with this statement. I understand that every person is different, but I cannot see how this claim holds up. In order to gain mass, you are going to have to be in a caloric surplus...Assuming that the food and protein shake would contain equal amounts protein, it is not going to make any difference in the long-term.

    For a protein choice though, I would go with Beverly International UMP. I know it's not plant-based, but it's the best I've used.

    I for a long time just about cut out shakes,food and only food, s hake here n there..i just started about 2 months ago again with an immediate shake post workout and have been seeing differences.
    But if your diet is on point and u eat enoug of everything necessary,then supps realy arent needed. But never hurt either

    That's all I'm trying to do. I have my diet on point, but I think the postworkout shake really does make a difference. Anyway I just ordered Lifetime Life's Basics Plant Protein Chocolate. 2 Tubs, which is like 2.44 pounds or something. I'll try it out for a while then maybe switch back to Whey Protein.

    I noticed the opposite. I've never had a bigger transformation in strength and appearance than when I switched from powdered protein to 95% whole food protein sources. My overall protein intake even decreased. (the only other change that has ever made such a drastic impact is when I started deadlifting regularly)
