    Yea sir. Agree 100%.


  2. i just picked up a couple of containers of trader joe's whey. i thought it was cheaper, but when i looked at the servings and quantities in the boxes, it works out to be about the same as i was spending on the carnivor

    Why?

    It's simple and a scientific fact:

    sparking Protein synthesis=whey
    stopping Protein degradation=Casein

    It's a no brainer. You wouldn't eat peanut butter jelly sandwich without the jelly..
    Thanks for the tip. However, I am well aware of these facts already regarding whey and casein. I usually add WPI on top of other things and rarely take it alone. I eat a lot of greek yogurt which is pretty much all casein. I also eat a lot of whole eggs, fish, and chicken. A lot of my protein for my on-the-go meals consist of 25-30g of WPI and 6-8oz of nonfat greek yogurt (***e or Chobani). I also use WPI post workout with a banana, and then eat a real meal within 45-60 minutes after that. I mostly use WPI for convenience and to supplement meals to bump the protein content up. For the most part I think if one has a balanced diet that is diverse with lots of fresh fruits, vegetable and meats it really shouldn't matter all that much what type of protein powder one takes. Its just a supplement.

    I was under the assumption that it caused a faster increase in blood amino acid concentrations and a higher insulin response, thus promoting Protein synthesis.
    The height of the insulin curve is not as important as the AUC, which varies with the load rather than the index. So no, "speed" of absorption does not matter

  5. I personally like MusclePharm's Combat Powder... I have GI issues & this sits well with me...

    Note: Some flavors have 25g protein & some 24g protein... Scoop size varies between 33g & 35g... I personally use vanilla flavor which is a 33g scoop with 25g protein...

  6. I've tried Vanilla and Cinnabun flavors from Trutein, it tastes very good.

    I'm sure you can get it changed before it ships. If you email now maybe you can catch them before they ship it out. Still though some people might like that flavor. I just thought it was gross. Didn't taste like Chocolate or Peanut Butter to me.

  8. I'm a big fan of Trutein Vanilla. Just can't go wrong with Vanilla. Straight Whey protein breaks me out and I itch real bad. Hate it because I use to really like a Whey shake prior to working out. Took me while to figure out it was the Whey causing it too.

  11. I've had 2 bad containers of Dymatize Elite Gourmet PB Choc one of them I purchased and the
    other was a replacement container sent to me by Dymatize and it was also bad.
    I do have a container of Trutein banana chocolate dipped and it taste fantastic and this flavor has been
    discontinued but I posted a review for it somewhere else and the True Science rep said they will be making
    a limited quantity of this flavor again so this is definitely a good flavor to pick up.

  12. I want to try the trutein Shamrock shake. It was only limited edition though. Maybe it will be back.

    I think you are confusing QUALITY of protein with TYPE of protein. I don't think the discussion is whether isolates are better than concentrates...

    As far as quality isolates..I was going with IsoFlex from Allmax. I switched to blends for the past year (along with intermittent fasting). Trutein, Delicious Protein, Combat Powder, Protean, Hexapro...

    I just made an order on True Nutrition for the first time making my own blend based off trutein's. it's 20% egg white isolate, 30% whey isolate and 50% milk protein isolate (40% casein, 10% whey).

    I have 2 containers of the Giant Sports PB Choc and it taste unique but
    it taste nothing like PB and I did a taste test with a few people and no one
    guessed PB everyone said it had coffee like flavor. I wanted PB so I was
    disappointed.

  17. Trutein is a favorite, although lately I've been big on Mark Lobliner's MTS whey, lab results from a dude I trust and it tastes awesome and is well priced.

    Not sure about the whole issue around dymatize, but Lobliner did an independent lab test on them and it lived up to the claims.

    Haven't had the PB chocolate from Giant Sports but I know the cookie dough is fantastic, on my second 5 lb. tub of it now.

    Trutein is fantastic and my go to for snacks between meals, some flavors are better than others in water though. Cinnabon , vanilla and pumpkin pie are my favorites.

    That being said I always have their choc PB cup around as well. Don't like it in water but love it in oatmeal, ice cream, or milk.

    Peach mango is arriving for me this week, high hopes for that flavor as well

    I made something similar for my last order at TrueNutrition. 20% egg white, 25% complete milk dairy isolate (80% casein / 20% whey) and 55% WPI cold filtration. Final ratio is 60% WPI, 20% Casein, 20% Egg.

    Speed of absorption hinders Bio-availability, correct? Pharmacokinetics?
