    I am trying to lose weight (as in fat). I want to lose 50lbs. I know that diet is a huge part of it and so is cardio and weight training. My question for you guys is, what is a good after work out protein shake (that hopefully wont break the bank) that is good to have for weight loss. I don't want to take a shake that will make me gain weight, I'll worry about bulking after I get down to my goal weight! Thanks guys!!

    If you want to lose weight, you should not be consuming more calories than you normally do.

    After you work out, binge on hummus, salad with feta, or raw veg.

    You don't need a protein powder to lose weight.....you just need to use more calories than you consume.

    Hope this helps.

    I disagree, average male calories intake per day =2500. Calories burned running =100 per mile. I really doubt you are going to run 25 miles every day. I would suggest cutting calorie intake a little, and cutting carbs.

    Tucson Farms Over The Moon Fat Free Chocolate Milk. Target seems to have the best price.

    I'm doing the same thing trying to lose 50 lbs I lost 34 lbs before just by walking on the treadmill 1 hr a day and eating oatmeal raw veggies and fruits yogurt and drinking water only cutting all soda juice and milk and any junk food. Just eat healthy foods carbs protein and low fat combination with lots and lots of water and have a regular exercise routine and u will see results. Determination dedication and discipline man! That's all

    Which part don't you agree with?

    Average male calories to MAINTAIN current weight is 2500......... you are burning an average of just over 100calories per hour just by existing.

    If you want to lose weight, like the OP is, it's essential to eat less calories than you are using each day.

    I would suggest having a low fat, low calorie snack after your workout...... not a high calorie protein powder which would add weight over time.

    I use Evolution which is only 160 calories if you mix with water instead of milk and 30 grams of protein. The protein is an appetite suppressant as well so I drink one cup in the mornings with a bit of butter and bread (you need the fat for testosterone production and the carbs for energy), and another half cup after workout about 7:30pm. That way my breakfast total is low but I've suppressed the appetite until lunch and because I've just deadened my appetite for dinner, I eat healthy and very controlled portions. Lunch is my meal to allow carbs but I feel pretty good that the afternoon activity and then working out will burn those off. Eat healthy but use the protein to dampen appetite as well as feeding the muscle growth.

    You cannot out exercise bad caloric intake.

    I don't think I suggested you could......I'm suggesting a healthy diet and lower than maintenance callorie intake would provide the weight loss the OP wants.

    Your advice above is not going to help the OP lose the weight he wants to.

    Just any cheap whey (Optimum Nutrition, etc) is just fine. You don't want to get any complex "weight gainers", just straight up whey.

    But as far as losing 50 lbs of fat, I've been there, and what worked for me was making sure I was at a caloric deficit every day by tracking every calorie that went into my body with an calorie counting app.
