    Wal-mart has a pretty good protein for 15 bucks, Body Fortress Whey Protein.

    Of you can just order it.

    Try this website, fast shipping and good prices.

    This one is pretty cheap, decent quality, and should last you about a month.

    The reason people pay more for the good stuff is higher purity, higher quality, less sugar or other undesirable additives, and honestly, better flavor.

    Unless you're going somewhere that always overcharges (yeah GNC, I'm talking to you), you really do get what you pay for. The better product will get better results. It hurts the bank a bit more but your body will love you for it.

    Your call though. If you want cheap, Costco. I prefer Popeyes though.

    One of the trainers I knew used to recommend egg white powder. Very high in protein, and dirt cheap. Like, really, really cheap. Put it in a smoothie and youd never know the difference Don't know about quality though. I never used it.

    Try using the whey isolate. It's a little bit more expensive, but you won't have the bloating. This seems to be fairly common with people, especially with people who are lactose intolerant.

    I just switched to Gaspari Myofusion. Mixes well with water and has a blend of proteins (whey isolate, whey hydrolysate, casein isolate). Some people complain that it has brown rice protein tho .

    I use optimum nutrition 100% whey after a workout and take their Casein protein before bed. I get it online and it is much better in my opinion then the walmart stuff and the High priced GNC stuff.

    ON nutrition is by faaaar the best tasting protein powder I've ever had. But if you blend all of your shakes and add bananas or whatever, probably doesn't matter.

    Ordering the ginormous bags (10 lbers) off bodybuilding.com or elsewhere is the cheapest in the long run.

    A-Ha! So here's the discussion on nutritional supplements I've been looking for!

    Just picked up some NitroTech from GNC today. Seems good from the info on the container. I shall see if it gives results. It wasn't... terribly expensive from GNC.. who, yes, overcharges.
