Whey Protein Alternative?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created March 29, 2013 at 1:46 AM

Hi there,

I was wondering if any bodybuilding folks out there that supplement with whey protein shakes have an alternative option for us dairy intolerant people. I was checking out some beef protein by Muscle Meds Carnivore and Optimum Nutrition's Egg Protein, has anyone had experience with these supplements or can suggest something similar?

Also as a side note, would it be a good idea to just drop the protein shakes altogether? I mean how much of a difference in gains would it be if I had to just focus on food as my main source of protein, As funny as that sounds. Drinking shakes PWO or when I need the extra calories is just super convenient with intense training.

Indeed. Calories and proper nutrients are more important than supplemental protein when it comes to strength/muscle gains. Eat meat, get your nutrients, and eat until very satisfied. If the convenience factor is the only reasonable way to get your calories then do it if you want.

Ok cool, thanks. I recently bought little jugs of egg whites from Costco, I'm thinking of making a protein concoction with that post workout.

Egg protein is great...good inbetween of whey and casein. If you have a reliable source to get fresh eggs from, have em raw. If not, you can buy the powder or just east eggs after your workout (hardboiled if you want immediately after)

A fabulous new plant based protein powder just hit the market today. It is a mushroom, hemp, and brown rice protein powder with probiotics and dietary enzymes, so it is very absorbable and does not give you the heavy bloat feeling that you might notice with a whey protein. It is highly recommended for people with GI disorders and food allergies since it is such a bioavailable protein source made from hypoallergenic ingredients. Having the addition of probiotics and enzymes means that the proteins break down even more easily, so it is a good pre-during-or post-workout protein shake. Try it and let me know what you think. We are very very excited about this one. It is now our favorite Peaceful Planet Plant Protein Powder and is called Perfect Plant Protein.

Sun Warrior Warrior Blend is a fantastic raw vegan protein powder made with pea, cranberry, and hemp protein. It has 16 grams of protein per scoop, so it is 83% protein. As for the other 17%, it's mostly whole food vitamins and minerals and no fillers. It tastes good, blends well in a smoothie, and isn't full of carbs like a lot of protein powders can be. My daughter who has a dairy allergy has it every morning in her breakfast smoothie without any trouble.

I use NitroFusion. It's a multi-source vegan (soy-free) complete protein. Tastes quite nice and mixes really well. Affordable, usually around $1 per serving (25g protein)

I strongly recommend trying it, as I have since I found it.

I also use collagen (Vitacost type 1&2) and BCAAs (Gaspari) during workout.

I just ordered this stuff I've been hearing buzz about at my gym, Paleo Pro Protein http://paleoproproducts.com/, though I purchased it through true nutrition online.

No dairy and no soy, which seems most of the other companies all have. Even the egg white protein I was using from GNC before had soy lecithin in it, this does not. I just started using it, super high quality and it's been great so far. Check it out.
