Protein Powder Questions
I have to get jaw surgery and will be 6 weeks in recovery with no solid food. I don't want to blend chicken or something, I do plan to use but butters etc. But that won't provide me with enough protein. I need some sort of supplement. Does anyone... (more)
Greetings, i had one question. A friend of mine wanted to start the paleo diet after he saw most of the effects it had on me and he asked me if the protein powder supplements are actually paleo. My answer wasn't clear if it is or not, i just... (more)

Let's keep it simple... So fat inhibits absorption of protein. Coconut milk has a lot of fat. If I made my protein shakes with coconut milk, would the fat from the coconut milk inhibit the absorption of the protein powder? I KNOW it's better to... (more)
Of all the healthy eating communities out there, I figured that Paleo eaters wouldn't consider protein powders at all. Yet I see a lot of talk about them on this site and ads for PaleoPro protein powder on many Paleo blogs. Why is this substance... (more)

Hi there, I am an active male exercising about five days a week, three of which are heavy weight lifting sessions that include a lot of compound exercises and the other two are my rock climbing (bouldering) days. I was diagnosed with a type of... (more)
I generally try to stay away from protien powders, but I have a recipe that calls for it (I'm OK with dairy). So today at Whole Foods I found their 365 brand Whey Protein Powder. It doesn't have any sweeteners, except "sweet dairy whey". (I... (more)
I'm certain this would not be FF-legal. It is lactose--which is milk sugar. The whey protein we use in our smoothies is the PROTEIN component of the whey, while this sweet product is the lactose (sugar) component of whey.
I lift weights x5 a week and typically end my workout with a nice grass-fed, certified rBGH-free whey protein powder. Later in the day, I've been adding a plant-based, soy-free protein powder made from pea protein isolate, brown rice protein... (more)

How crucial is protein post workout? I think i heard Rob Wolf mention that Mat Lalonde only eats carbs post workout. Because of the way my schedule works out (college student living in dorms) i workout in the evening and eat white rice and... (more)
Do your workout and then just eat a proper meal when you get hungry. Forget these arseholes that try to turn working out and eating, into something complicated.
Yes, I know this has been addressed before.. But, I am wondering what protein powder would be the best for a morning shake. Reasons are: I am VERY short on time in the morning (have to be at work by 8, and I already go to the gym first), and I... (more)
I was thinking of taking IsoPure Low Carb protein powder as a last resort for missing meals or for meals on the road. Anyone have any thoughts of the way the powder reacts with Paleo? By the Way I am down 30lbs. Super excited.
I get it - cavemen didn't have protein powders in 5lb tubs. But, if they did, what would they use? I'm finishing up my Dymatize Elite Whey Protein Isolate from my pre-paleo days. Any suggestions on where to go from here?
I've been working on a basic strength training routine with the intention of moving to a powerlifting-focused training once I've outgrown it - currently it's basically SL5x5, except with all the 5x5 changed to 3x5 (deadlifts still 1x5) since the... (more)

So I just found TrueProtein.com and they let you formulate your own custom protein powder. I'm not affiliated with the site or company, just think it's a cool tool to use and their prices seem to be decent. I know protein shakes aren't paleo or... (more)
Someone mentioned in another post that they didn't use whey protein, partly because of the IGF-1. This is a fair call, and I have heard the same argument before. Can anyone recommend a better protein drink substitute? I know that I should be... (more)
