  • Best Protein for Me?? Skip-Please Read

    I was hoping you guys could help me out. I am going to start the DC training program and i am looking for a protein to take. I am currently 23 yrs old, 6'0", 215 lbs, about 15% BF. I do not have the money to take many different protein formulas. I was looking on trueprotein.com and I am going to design my own blend. I was wondering what you would recommend. I am going to increase my calories to about 3500 a day, anymore and I get too fat. I am going to avoid carbs in my powder because I can just add them post workout when I need them. What kind of ratio do you guys recommend? I will be using this 3-4 times a day, including before bed. I am a fan of glutamine, but was not sure how much to put in and whether to include the peptides or not. All advice is appreciated. Thanks.

    I like my blends for a reason - they cover fast, medium and slow proteins. I have two blends that I recommend:

    33% whey micro
    33% micellar casein
    17% egg white
    17% soy

    For those that are uncomfortable using soy or it causes problems for them, drop the soy for calcium caseinate.

    You can get some glutamine in there, also, no problem.

    DC and TPC are extremely knowledgable on protein and the combinations that may suit you best. I would get their opinion, also.

          i agree with this statement, 3500 kcals is not much, especially when you are trying to put on the most mass in the shortest amount of time. with DC's methods, it is not so much the caloric intake that is important. trust me you will not get fat consuming what he recommends.

          with the above stated, it seems your main concerns are a protein which is economical as well as extremely high quality. i can put something together that will accomplish this.

          personally i would not just pick one protein formula for each protein feeding of the day. alot of what DC's recommends diet wise is the manipulation of macro nutrients, carbs, fats and proteins. and dealing with protein, covering all angles when it comes to absorption (fast, slow), timeing, etc. you could get away with one good mix, but why when you can mix 2 or 3 at just as cheap a price, if not cheaper.

          i would recommend a night protein and a daily all around protein you can use to fill a meal lacking in protein or as a postwork protein. FYI, we do carry some awesome proteins that are more costly than others, but that doesn't mean the more economical proteins do not work just as well, you just need to know how to manipulate them to get what you want from them.

          everyday protein: i would go with a mix of WPC and WPI ion-exchange, both are very economical, but both are of awesome quality. acutally dante and i were comenting yesterday on how our WPC, does not give any of the usual dreaded side effects, like bloating, gas, etc. like most of the "other" manufacturers do. i would go with a 60% wpi ion and 40% wpc, if you are looking to really save money change the percentage of the wpc higher. this is a good formula, because most people (like us) eat every 2-3 hours, it is fast absorbing but the wpc slows the wpi down just a bit to hold you over to your next feeding. as well since it is fast absorbing it is great for post workout.

          night time formula: again you stated you are looking for quality and something economically easy on your wallet. i would go with a mix of 40% wpc, 30% calcium caseinate, 10% micellar casein, and 20% egg white. each protein in this mix is high quality but relativly low priced (minus the micellar, but it is only at 10% so it won't effect the price much). all of these proteins, except the wpc (but it is still good and needed) will keep your body feeding all night long.

          hope this helps and if you need further explanation on reasoning of a formula, don't hesitate to ask.

          thanks,
