Hemp Protein? Help!

Answered on August 19, 2014

Hi So I was wondering what is better, whey or hemp protein? Been trying to do some research and yes I know they are very different. Not big on shakes - would rather have a meal but lately I have been coming home eating then going straight to bed, Since I have bad acid reflux it has been making me really nausea's and sick through out half the day. I realize I need to eat earlier and let my food digest but with my work its hard to stop and eat. When I get home I am tired and eat and go to sleep within 5 - 10 minutes. So this is why I come to a protein shake while at work to let things digest and eating a bigger lunch. Any recommendations? Thanks ahead of time.

Ok thanks...I think I will look for into the hemp as it is more for a meal replacement for dinner...

thanks but its not for lunch.. for dinner and because of my job it is really hard to just stop and eat especially around 5 pm when we get busy... thats why I was looking for something easier. Thanks tho! I mentioned lunch meaning I would eat a bigger lunch...

I should also add that aside from serving as complete proteins, each one has their own unique health properties, so that's something to think about as well when deciding which to supplement with.

In my opinion there is zero need for a whey protein shake unless it is taken pre and/or post workout.

I don't think I put weight on easily... But I work out in the AM, Majority running or insanity videos sometimes.. Didn't know if it mattered that I wasn't working out before hand either?

You might instead cook a bunch of steaks at once and then take one with you for lunch each day. Far better satiety and nutrition doing this.

It all depends upon your body-type and goals. Primarily, if you lean naturally towards an ectomorphic body (do not put on fat easily), or if you lean more towards the endomorphic end of the spectrum (put on fat easily). I'll tell you why, and it has to do with the insulin response...whey being far more insulinogenic than hemp. In an ectomorph or mesomorph, the insulin spike will promote muscle anabolism (muscle gain), but in someone who doesn't work out hard enough or is more mesomorphic, the insulin spike will promote fat anabolism (fat gain).

So, yes choose your protein wisely based upon your body type and goals. Personally I really enjoy whey, engage in regular intense weight training, and don't put on fat easily. So whey is the protein I choose when i want a protein shake. Suits me well.

Here's a link comparing whey to casein. The verdict is casein if you put on weight easily( http://www.ergo-log.com/wheycas.html ).

Protein is highly overrated in our society. If youre eating a paleo diet, seeking out grass-fed beef and wild seafood, then there is no reason for added protein, especially in powdered form. Whey has far too much tryptophan and is bad for the thyroid, hormone production. Hemp is also high in O6 which is equally bad for the thyroid, hormone production. If you truly want to add powdered protein into your diet, add gelatin. Great lakes sells argentinian (grass-fed) beef gelatin.
