    Best Protein Powder


    I have been using Optimum nutritions 100% whey after a workout for a while and was wondering if there was any other protein powder out there that is better to help add lean muscle. Nothing that will bloat me or add a bunch fat and must taste good. Just trying to hear some reviews on some other products before i just go and try something. Thanks!

    The brand of protein powder used isn't really going to determine how much lean muscle you add; any gains (including fat) should come from a caloric surplus. That being said, I choose my protein powder based mainly on taste. The brands I use most often are XF UP 2.0, Protean, Pronom, Giant Sports, and Myofusion.

    There's protein on the way from USPlabs as well. You can put in an app for the chance to become a beta tester by following the link below. There's also a crazy giveaway for year's supply!

    I believe SAN Raw Fusion uses Stevia. I liked the taste of the vanilla samples that I've tried. However, it's a plant based protein, which isn't something that interests me.

    Optimum hydro whey or hydro builder. Chocolate tastes good. Hydro builder also has extra goodies like creatine, betaine and other goodies to build muscle.

    One protein isn't going to give you better gains than another, because that is dependant of your diet overall. With that being said my vote goes for Protean, PROniom, XF and SAN.

    You might want to check out Gut Health, which I believe is still on sale at NP. The old version was a staple of mine and did a great job reducing gas and bloating. I'm already noticing less gas a few days into the latest version

    The only other new supplement I have recently introduced to my body is Anabeta Elite.

    Monster milk by cytosports is the best bang for the protein, IF you can catch a sale. When lean bulking I usually buy some on sale/special, along with a big tub of optimum whey, and I put 2 scoops monster milk, 1 scoop ON whey, and a cup of milk plus some water and ice....tastes good as hell and its 80+ grams of protein. twice a day. Just picked up three 4 lb tubs of Monster milk, one 5 lb tub of ON whey, and 2 Monster Amino (expensive but its a well flavored 8:1:1 BCAA formula...again "when its on sale....") since "this one place" offered 20% off. This sale happened the day before I start my 6 weeks of SD mid-cycle and my 4000+ calorie portion. It was written in the stars I guess......

    I've had s'mores and cookies&cream, which I believe mixed thinner than most blends. They're delicious though.

    Bluebonnet or Jay Robb Whey Protein Isolate both have Stevia. Kind of pricey but you use less and you can find better pricing by looking around the Internet.

    Protean is definitely my go-to (ordered 12 pounds of it and then joined Team iForce ).

    It's a quality blend of five great proteins (whey concentrate, isolate, and hydrolysate as well as micellar casein and milk protein isolate) and the flavoring system is unmatched. I also like the unique flavors - Vanilla Mint Swirl and Red Velvet Cake - when my palate is craving something unique.

    Other than looking for Made in USA(not sourced from China,India,etc) Isolate and GMP or similar certified with minimal fillers does it really matter whose protein it is?

    I use Ultimate Nutrition Iso Sensation 93 unflavored due to the above.

    Can't go wrong with Trutein cinnabun. Vanilla isn't too bad either. I want to try Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup sometime if it's ever in stock when I am ready to reorder. I haven't seen it mentioned but Gaspari Myofusion has never let me down. First flavor I tried was chocolate mint in the regular version and I loved it. I also have tried the pro-biotic Myofusion Cinnamon Roll and also liked it. Right now I am using Myofusion Elite series(isolate basically) peanut butter cookie dough and love it. First taste was different but ever since it has been awesome. Also currently using Cellucor COR-Performance whey Cinnamon Swirl and it's pretty good. My latest order is a tub of the Cellucor peanut butter marshmallow and a tub of MusclePharm combat oder cookies and cream. Hoping those are good.

    I have tried Protean red velvet cake like some others have mentioned and wasn't overly impressed with it. ON is always good quality but kind of underflavored in my opinion. MGM nutrition used to be a great protein I used to order as well as All The Whey. Never tried MuscleMilk and don't like the profile. More calories than I want from my protein and I have seen old reports showing it has large amounts of metals in it

    I have tried many others and could go on all day but those are the current favorites of mine.

    A lot of people are confused about muscle milk and monster milk. They both have 310 cals per 2 scoops but the "monster" has 50 grams protein vs 32 in "muscle". pretty damn good profile and it tastes good with those extra fats on sale of course lol.....
