    I'm going back to college, so I'll be eating most of my food from the school's cafeteria. I won't be able to track how much protein I'm eating like I am now, therefore I think I'm going to start taking a supplement. Any suggestions? I heard whey protein is good. However, I heard whey isolate is better because regular whey protein doesn't make you feel good below the belt.

    Oh I thought I would see all sorts of dirty things when I saw this topic. And even more dirty answers when I saw college.

    After talking to a few guys on here at and at the gym, i have made the switch to Optimum Nutrition ProComplex. 60g of protein. So far I have to say it is the best tasting powder I have had in a long time. Trust me it does work. Take as directed. I dont think I will be buying anything else. It is pretty pricey but look around online for deals. Bodybuilding.com usually has it priced lower than others.

    turk saidwhat is different with whey isolate?


    Whey protein isolate is further filtered, removing virtually all fat and lactose, thus isolating just the protein. Whey protein isolate is about double the price of whey protein concentrate, and cheaper whey protein formulas generally contain less or no whey protein isolate. People who are lactose intolerant will experience gastric distress from ingesting whey protein concentrate, but they should probably have no problem with whey protein isolate.

    Don't sweat the protein shake. Alot of people have there favorites. A good whey protein to have around can be useful. Especially in college. Just remember to get your exercise routine in order first.
