Every male gym goer I know uses whey protein, I have been using it since I was about 15.
Besides convenience reasons and having a nice chocolate brownie flavoured shake is there a real benefit ?
I spend about 80$ every 30-45 days on whey for a 5kg bag is there a supplement that I can benefit more from ?
I am 190b at the moment so I only eat 200g protein per day. Thats about 900g chicken breast raw which isn't that much food. Plus since I am on a cut It will help keep my appetite full.
I take creatine because I know Its difficult to get 5g creatine from red meat hence the supplementation.
I take a multi because I know I probable can't get every vitamin from foods.
I take omega 3 because Im not gonna eat a bunch of oily fish everyday.
Are there any supplements such as creatine which cannot realistically be eaten from whole foods but provide benefits in getting bigger/leaner/stronger ?
(Fedex shipping to europe is pretty uneconomical unless I buy in bulk so please don't suggest indigo 3g/MAG-10/Plazma. )
BCAA, Leucine, Cla, ALA, HMB etc instead of whey if I am already hitting my protein needs through whole foods.
