Hello Skimblers
I have seen here that people use protein powder in meal.
can you tell what is protein powder, Is it supplement or anything else.

Protein powder is like a meal replacement. Some protein powders come with added vitamins. For a work out a whey protein would be best. If you are looking to gain muscle you may also want to consider adding a supplement called bcaa, its amino acids that help to build muscle.

Its not a meal replacement its a suppliment in addition to normal food intake bearing in mind it contains calories...its pointless if your just working out..its used to build muscle when weightlifting. Whey is best in any circumstance but comes from cows milk (seperate the curds and whey! curd makes cheese, the waste is sold as protein) lactose or religious etc can use other forms protien power...isolate is best mosr refined version but is expensive which is why its mixed and also absorbs faster.

Protein is not just for mass but recovery post workout for tissue repair.

Whey is most preferred for amino acids and glutamine. Vegan blends and hemp protein are also available.

Not sure what your fitness goals are but if your trying to gain mass you'll have to add other supplementation.

No you've watch to many fitness DVDs trying to sell you there own poor quality protein. Recovery from what exactly..ordanry workouts build little muscle tou run out of body weight but you do tone up...socwhat are you recovering from that you need protein suppliments to help with it.. People should spend a few hours reading before commenting BS used to sell people stuff.

Matt, if you push your muscles to fatigue they get torn and when they repair themselves they grow bigger. For repairing they need protein and water. But you should of course first try to meet your protein needs with protein rich food, not supplements.

Not everyone can consume large amounts of protein throughout the day. I know I can't eat protein rich foods due to gall bladder disease.

If I don't drink a protein shake or eat bar I get the worst case of DOMS to the point I can't walk. I know this from personal experience when I squat 200lbs to failure.

I've never had results with just whey protein for muscle growth . Usually Creatine and Beta Alanine gives me the best gains.
