    So what kind of Whey powder supplements do you guys take?
    I'm looking into trying something new, and I would like to read what you have to say.
    So far I'm leaning toward Myofusion, but I am still undecided.
    Tanks!

    BSN Syntha-6 (whey protein) post-training + Cellmass (creatine / glutamine) for recovery.

    I also use BSN's N.O.Explode for pre-training energy/focus.

    I've tried a few - but at the moment I'm using Anabolic Window by Nutrabolics - seems to be doing what it should be

    Optimum Nutrition.
    Top brand, subjects itself to voluntary testsing and standards that others don't.
    Personally, I use their Naturals line (no artificial sweetners).

    Six star is also supposed to be quite good. (By way of Six Stay and Optimum Nturtion being the only two brands with an essentially zero lead and other heavy metal content in a recent Consumer Reports test.)

    Isopure (From GNC) - because it's the only one I've found that has no sugar and only 1 gram of fat per serving.

    I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for with protein powders. I use Stronger, Faster, Healthier. It costs a bit more but it's got a lot of information about sources/ingredients.

    I use BSN's True Mass but also stack it with BSN's NO-Xplode pre-workout and BSN's cell mass post workout.

    I use Designer Whey "natural" flavor. It doesn't have anything artificial, including no sweeteners.

    If you don't mind the sweetners and other ingredients, Syntha 6 (vanilla ice cream flavor) is a basic good tasting and quality protien powder. You can mix it with yogurt for a pudding or for a sauce.

    The "natural" sweeteners that have low or no calories are put in almost all protein powders and anything sweet and "healthy," (including Syntha 6). Unfortunately, they can cause reactions in people, including anxiety. Since I have that problem to start, I don't want to take a chance.

    Designer Whey "natural flavor" isn't horrible tasting, just cardboard. It does taste good mixed with natural organic juices, which I use as an after workout shake, to get equal carb and protein, no or low fat...as part of my program designed for my personal needs (complicated) by my trainer. I don't like how it tastes mixed with other foods, so if I must, I just drink the whey protein with water and leave the rest of the meal tasting good.

    I always used to go with generic whey from bulkfoods.com, or whatever was cheap at costco, but for the last couple of months I've been using BSN Syntha-6 and getting some great results. I'm not sure that there's a causal relationship there, but as long as I'm making progress, I don't want to change a variable.

    I like the Dymatize Elite. The flavor(I usually go for vanilla) and specs are good and it's reasonably priced.

    I like energy athletics strength. Their no non-sense, fact products seem easy to use with a decent amount of servings and very soluble. I used to use GNC's brand shakes but then I'd end up with giant clumps floating around. EAS is sold at GNC, WalMart and Target and the Grocery store.

    They are also pretty reasonable price wise and certainly effective because it's put me back up another 12 pounds. Gettin swoll ni! I'm not with all that giant Barrel sized tubs of protein powder lying around. Give me something that I can toss in my backpack or something.

    This is my favorite protein at the moment,

    Dymatize Elite

    It is low fat, low carb. I've tried two flavors, Chocolate Mint, and Cafe Mocha. Cafe Mocha is great, chocolate mint not so much!

    O.N. Gold Standard - Chocolate is by far my fav.

    Isopure chocolate was pretty good as well.. but O.N. tastes a little better and is less expensive.

    FYI, if you wish

    My trainer says it is good to alternate your protein powders. For example, after finishing a container of protein, try another brand, even if it is still whey protein. Go back to the first protein after using up that container, or another kind of protein or brand.

    The point is the body creates allergies to a food that is eaten regularly over a long period of time. Same if someone eats, say, only tuna sandwiches daily for lunch for months or years. This does not necessarily mean you'll start sneezing. You'll experience different changes you may or may not realize in terms of energy, taste fatigue, so forth.

    I actually like the Vanilla mixed with a cup of black coffee and a little almond or coconut milk before workout. Tastes like a coffee milkshake and gives you a kick of energy

    GNC's 100% Whey is private labeled O.N. Gold standard, and is generally cheaper than O.N. Gold Standard if you buy it in the store.
    Also really good
    NDS Amplify Smoothy 1g or natural sugar, 25g protein/serving 120 calories, and added BCAAs...
