    Hi.

    What's the best place online to get protein products? I'm new to this, but I want to get from scrawny to brawny and I'm trying a new training program called "Scrawny to Brawny."

    I need:
    greens powder
    milk protein
    creatine

    Thanks for your help and stay hot. I hope that I'll get an ass worthy of my underwear collection soon.

    I buy pure protein powder in bulk from http://www.trueprotein.com/.

    They have the protein and the creatine.

    Obscenewish often mentions another online protein and supplement vendor, the name of which escapes me right now. Like True Protein, it's a similar business selling product in bulk at a much better price than jars at a store.

    I've been using bulkfoods.com

    Really, I go with whoever has the best price and a decent product specification. Be sure to check the "shipping and handling" fees, which can be a substantial part of the cost.

    I like ordering from Life Extension Foundation (lef.org). They use stevia to sweeten the powder and their source for whey protein is trademarked and supposed to be of a higher grade.

    That would be proteinfactory.com.

    My usual spiel:

    I'm lactose intolerant and their filtered whey is the most digestible I've ever bought and it mixes in a small amount of water. I'm not interested in "savoring" whey protein. Nonetheless, you can order a variety of flavors, sweeteners and add all kinds of supplements.

    I've been buying from them for years.

    massnutrition.com has an almost overwhelming selection at sometimes half off the retail price on many major brands. I buy all my fizogen products and my ProComplex protein powder there.

    MikemikeMike's got it right... I only fork out about $90 every other month for all my stuff! They've got about everything, it's pretty good.

    Another good site is http://www.advantagesupplements.com--most of the prices are about the same as dpsnutrition, so I guess it comes down to who has the better deal on shipping icon_wink.gif

    I order from proteinfactory.com too, saw OW recommend it in another thread a number of months ago. I can't recommend it enough. It mixes more easily than any other powder I've ever used, easily enough that I just bring 1/3c powder in a water bottle to the gym, add water, shake, and chug. Doesn't totally dissolve, but is tolerable (others just turn into lumps of powdery glue.)

    Plus, it is really inexpensive. Just getting the pure whey protein isolate (I think I added L-glutamine and creatine for the hell of it) it's like $10 a pound, which is 15 servings of 30 grams each (the most, experts seem to agree, your body can put to use in one meal.)

    So my $50 5lb sack'o'protein is 75 servings. Can't beat that with a stick.

    At home I mix it with my hand blender (aka immersion blender) so it's perfectly dissolved, and in even a small amount of water it's very thin, doesn't turn into a goopy shake like so many others. It's actually so convenient I'm getting lazy, I'll skip meals and just have a scoop of that stuff plus a slice of bread with a little butter or something.

    That said, compared to many guys on here I am a weakling, so YMMV. But I certainly like it.

    I went on the site; there are quite a number of protein shakes. Exactly which one are you speaking of?

    I highly recommend vitacost.com

    I have tried many other sites on the web but have found vitacost to offer the lowest prices and the widest range of products.

    They have a low $5 standard shipping fee on orders of all sizes with in the U.S.

    They also offer affordable international shipping. When I moved to New Zealand I continued to use vitacost because I still found it cheaper than buying from the local stores and my shipment always arrived in less than 5 days.

    Vitacost also offers a program in which you can set up to have your supplement purchases reoccur automatically over a specified period of time; they will bill your account and send you your order with out you having to do so much as lift a finger.

    If you are a hard gainer (like myself) I would recommend using Cyto gainer by cyto sport (the makers of muscle milk)

    Thanks for this info. 580 calories with water is not bad ... but does it leave you with a bloated feeling. I am kinda scared, LOL, of the four scoop serving -- don't want to shut down my appetite for the rest of the day. Is the scoop the size of that found in Isopure, or is it like the cup-sized ones we know about in those ridiculous bloating shakes?

    chucky: LOL. I didn't see your post before. That's awesome. I'd rather eat the cheeseburgers in solid form, though. And right now I'd rather lose body fat (still hovering at ~10%) and then worry about adding muscle later. I have never had a problem eating *more*, so I'm not worried about bulking if that's what I decide I want. icon_smile.gif

    Skorpios: I get their ion exchange whey protein isolate, the same stuff obscenewish said he gets, just because it's inexpensive, and sounds like a good all-purpose protein, high bioavailability, etc. I know they let you make all these wacky blends to do time-release or sustained stuff so you can have a different cocktail for post-workout versus before-sleep, but that would be overkill for me.

    Thanks, man.
