Just tagging onto this topic - SuperStore has their own brand of whey isolate protein.

Its made by the Presidents Choice brand - very affordable, low fat, low sugar, low carb, and tastes great.  Not a super strong taste either, so it mixes well with the rest of your post workout shake. 

Their vanilla flavor is great for baking with, for those of us who are muscle addicts and everything in our diet has to serve a purpose.  (Great for protein pancakes, protein granola bars, etc etc.)
Fortune Favours the Bold...and the Smart.

Wouldn't it be nice to have some Boondock Saints kicking around?

Anakha, you do realize that this was about 6 months old eh? :)

But I find using post workout mixes helps a lot, I use to take post work out afterwards, and I never, and I mean never since I used it at the time felt any post pain. But thats just me. :P Now I gotta get back into shape as I havent worked in quite some time..........

,..and it is still only 48.99 at Costco. IMO it's quality stuff without the fillers. Bought two tubs last week. The vanilla tastes better than the chocolate. Buy some All Greens and Omega 3 fish oil with it while you are there.

I prefer the chocolate. I found the vanilla kind of chalky tasting, but the Decadent Chocolate tasted more like an actual milk shake.

To each his own, though. And even the vanilla tastes much better than most protein powders which most resemble dirty gravel wrapped in fail.

Not sure if that's a typo for "foil," or *****-slapping people who prefer vanilla.  Funny, either way.    ;D

Wasn't a typo or a slight to vanilla lovers, but more of a commentary on the large majority of protein powders that promise "great taste!" and deliver nothing of the sort.  :boke:  ;D

Protein powders are designed to taste like crap to people who shouldn't be drinking them.

Fact.

I use to have a orange flavor for my pre workout mixes when I was in the police college, and lemon-lime mix for post workouts. tasted extremely good, especially if mixed properly.  With my current civi job, I DO get a 10-15% discount off of supplements at Supplement Kings here in Halifax ;)

And have you looked at the ingredients used to flavour your mixes?  The wife having been diagnosed with Cancer now has us reading the labels on all products that we are injesting, and the amount of carcinogenic additives, preservatives, pesticides, etc. in our foods (including supplements and even vitamins) is amazing.  To flavour your food, they have to add something that is not 'natural' or high in sugar.  This is a bad thing.

I was about to say Crystal Light packets are not too bad as they are only 5 calories... But I just read into a page of the ingrediants, and I am completely shocked :crybaby:

But one way to actually lose weight, is to play Dance Dance Revolution XD That's what I did for less than a year, and lost around 100 pounds  ;D (well, eatin healthy helps with that too)  ;D

When I was playing football in grade 12, leading up to my first year I was taking NoXplode, Purple K, and Anabolic Prescription. I went from a 225 max bench to 305 bench in about 6 months, and put on about 20lbs in muscle. Now not so much anything, more about watching what I eat and just exercising.

I stand 6'5, when I was playing football I was up at 305-310. I'm back down to about 280-85. I'm still working on doing some cutting, but overall I'm pretty healthy and in shape.

No we didn't, this guy started his own thread yesterday

Then it got merged with this one, most threads on here are reposts then merged by staff to existing threads. But thanks for coming out, way to contribute to the discussion going on.  :salute:
