I find protein shakes a great way to increase my protein intake with also being convenient whilst at work. I use a lean whey protein called PHD Pharma Whey (not sure whether it is in the states) but I get the vanilla creme and it tastes lovely.

I usuall do a scoop in a shake with fruit and yogurt after my workout, and will often have another scoop before bed so that my body burns it while I sleep for fuel instead of muscle.

For me; I drink a shake about a half hour before (I also eat an apple) and drink another immediately afterwards.

Thanks all! I ended up picking up the small bag of GNC's Pro Performance 100% Whey Protein in the vanilla flavor. Figured I'd start out there and see how I like it.

Now, my next question(s),
*Do you take it BEFORE or AFTER your workout session?
*Do you take it everyday?
*Do you take it more than once a day?

Thanks in advance for the input!!!! emoticon

Sorry- I see a significant typo in my last post: It's a twenty PERCENT discount, not a $20 discount. Sorry about that!

Also, Designers Whey is a good-tasting whey protein powder. It's more expensive, but tastes good.

Optimum Nutrition (standard whey)has been my choice for 2 reasons:

1. Most that I have tried taste pretty good... favs are Chocoalte Malt and Strawberry.

2. Plenty of other whey's give me terrible gas and many reviews can be found for others stating the same.

Some that have caused me gas:
Body Fortress (worst ever), Whey Maxx, Muscletech, even Optimum's Nitro core 24.

Right now, someone with a whole lot less is doing a whole lot more.

I use the regular GNC brand Whey Protein Powder. With the $20 discount members get the first week of the month it's about the best price out there that I've found, Internet or not.

Honestly, it's just about a crap shoot as far as who has the best protein powder. When it comes to whey proteins I've found they are pretty much the same across the board.

I've always been partial to Optimum products. I find it economical and it tastes pretty good to me. I no longer go to GNC, but shop around for the best deal since prices for protein shot up. The last place I got it from was bodybuilding.com and even with shipping, it cost less than buying it locally. (Canada)
