    Answer: Real food is by far the most important component of a bodybuilding diet. There are so many nutrients that real food contains, many of which have not even been discovered yet, that you would be doing yourself a disservice by limiting the amount of real food that you are eating.

    In addition, real food has what is called a "thermic effect". A "thermic effect" is the impact that real food has in your metabolism. Because real food requires digestion, your body burns more calories in processing it; as opposed to shakes which are already pre-digested.

    Regardless of what the ads tell you, protein shakes do not offer any muscle building benefit, nor "secret muscle building ingredient", above and beyond what real food offers you. Yes, I have read the ads too with all sorts of speedy muscle building promises but I can assure you through experience that most of the ingredients advertised as miraculous have not been proven to work neither by science (even though most ads of this nature usually talk about research studies that usually do not exist) nor by actual results at the gym. These products however have been proven beyond the shadow of any scientific doubt to shrink the size of your wallet and bank account.
    Ok

    1. Protein powder has an equivalent thermic effect to whole food, since the thermic effect is 99% chemical.
    2. Correct, no muscle-building benefit from one whole protein source over another in the context of a high protein diet.

    Alright I've voiced my opinion enough. To many people against me thinking protein powder is as good as real food so I'm done. Its common sence real food>protein powder. Not trying to start a fight but damn I can't believe some people think they can get by using powder as a permanent substitute for real food. Just do a little research guys.

    Who is saying to use protein powder as a permnant substitute for real food? I just re-read every post in this thread. Either you can't read or you can't comprehend the phrase "all things in moderation."

    Strong reading comprehension.

  5. Haha I'm cornered. Ok guys you win. Gang up on the new guy. Bottom line is if you drink more than 2 protein shakes a day your over doing it.

    And when your knowledge is shown to be incorrect by people with much more knowledge than you, you continue to pour out incorrect information without even considering the information presented to you.

    Your "knowledge" is just repeating what everyone else here said (not to rely solely on protein shakes) and then insisting that we are all whey protein addicts and that we shouldn't be replacing food with shakes.

    Has anyone here disagreed with that point? No. Are you exhibiting symptoms of pre-clinical psychosis, i.e. thinking the world is against you and imagining that people are arguing with you when they are in fact in agreement with you? Yes.

    Haha oh my god man the title of this thread is protein shakes vs food source. Food always wins. What did they do back when they didn't have protein powder. Show me some scientific evidence that powder is as good as food. C'mon I've been trying to prove my point try to prove yours. Educate me bro.

The same applies to relying heavily on whey protein. The real point is don't overdo any one source (protein or whole food), as you may be short changing yourself.

  13. So agmatine used at 1g seems to be the normal "full" dose for people for great pumps now my question is if your on cycle you can store more glycogen so if I drink more water and up my agmatine would that create a bigger pump since I'm on cycle?

    Protein powder is useful for what it is designed for; giving protein.. Its not a meal replacement or substitute,its something extra to coincide with a diet.

  15. Also I would like to point out that I agree that whole foods are better.

    But my main point of disagreement is you saying that protein shakes are damaging to the kidneys because they are somehow different than other forms of protein.

    Macronutrients are macronutrients, its the micronutrients that make the difference for me.

    Its all digested and absorbed the same.

    The body doesn't discriminate because of it being liquid and it is all absorbed equally.

    Ultimately it is milk protein, if it were any different from beef or chicken then the same argument could be made for the protein you gain from milk.

    So, all his point is, is that protein shakes-powder protein doesn't help you build muscle more than whole food based protein? Well, no sheet. No one here is claiming it does. You just went from arguing protein powder is bad for you, not as beneficial for you as whole foods, to finding some mindless bro science ramble as to why protein powder doesn't contain miracle muscle building qualities.

    So the take away here is to sprinkle protein powder on my steak and captain crunch

    Sadly many doctors still tell you to stay away from red meat. It is depressing when you realize just how poor the guidance is from the authority figures that average people interface with on health topics.

  24. Whole food is *always* better.

    That being said, 2 scoops protein + 1.5cups of oats is a staple for me most mornings and sometimes evenings if i'm bulking.

    Ive never had this issue; in fact quite the opposite. What you must remember is that doctors,as educated as they are, are still human and their own personal feelings into something may end up as being advice whether its based on science or not. In this case if they say avoid red meat then ask why, and counter it if you disagree and try understand their perspective.

    Perhaps they are but my body didn't notice the difference at all.

    I got sick of cooking meat and I am not a fan of convenient, canned or processed meats etc

    So, for about 3 montsh now, I have been using a mixed veggie-protein-powder source (made of pea protein, hemp, brown rice etc) in place of 3 of my 4 meals' meat sources (which for me was white fish)

    I have been doing this for 3+ months and I have not noticed ANY difference in body comp, weight etc

    Just sharing

    Before anyone asks, I continued to eat the other macros alongside the veggie-based protein shake (nuts, vegetables, etc)
    I agree I never noticed a difference when I exerimented a year ago.

    Te only difference was my hunger. I was more hungry and missed the chew factor and feeling like I'm eating

  27. how did i miss this fun thread?

    i just gotsta get my pennies involved here lol

    actually, in the healthy functioning individual, there is none

    but the chew factor bro, the chew factor
    you are missing out on bodycomp friendly cal-burning in cuts by not chewing, which burns more calories than does swallowing a liquid!

    bottom line:
    still no


    all that said - i will say it is my preference to have real food
    i kinda enjoy that
    at the same time, 3 steaks + 3 shakes a day will get a mug swole

  29. I'm surprised that no one has pointed out, that chewing your food releases digestive enzymes, which help digest and absorb your food.

    Digestive enzymes will be released once the protein shakes hits your stomach anyway. You miss out on salivary amylase, which is essentially only there to clean up leftover starches in the mouth (hence why chewing sugar-free gum is considered good for your teeth, as it promotes such release).

    The digestive enzymes produced by the pancreas are critical to proper digestion, especially for foods that contain protein. Through the stimulation of the vagus nerve, chewing can provoke the pancreas to release itís digestive enzymes. As such, thorough chewing will likely lead to an increase in digestive enzyme production and result in more complete digestion.

    Unfortunately, chewing on gum can also stimulate the pancreas, but because thereís no food to digest, this results in a release of digestive enzymes that arenít needed. If this happens on a regular basis, it could wear down the pancreas, result in a decline of digestive enzymes, and lead to chronically compromised digestion and health.

    I am well aware of how duodenal digestion is mediated (my post was about salivary amylase), and release can occur at numerous stages (smelling food, tasting food [<- note that chewing is not required!], and pepsin release).

    I find it hard to believe that one would deplete digestive enzymes via gum-chewing, but if you have a source for that claim, I'd be happy to read it.

    so all those hundreds of thousands of smokers who quit by taking up gum-chewing ...
    are yet still compromising their health

    great source of info is he..
    always remember however, it is never a good practice, to never question a source of information
    no disrespect meant whatsoever (to either him or you), but what you infer here is actually quite a scary proposition

    if you never question what you are told, you will never have true growth
    in fact, may be quite misinformed on some things, at the end of the day

    always question your sources
    always
