Re: Need advice buying protein shakes

Just to mention, that comparison of glass of milk with protein drink is obviously stupid. Sorry but it is. How much protein is in 1 glass is shown on every packing I ever saw (usually 3g/100ml).
Please read about them (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protein), proteins are composed of amino-acids, our body knows about 20 of them. Only and only when they are composed in food during digestion in specific amounts body can digest & use them. Otherwise it just flushes them down the drain.
So Broccoli has 50% of protein content. Great, right? Nope, the mixture is very bad. Similar goes for Soya. There are ingredients that contain good mixture, like white parts of eggs, whey etc. That's why drinks are made from these things.

To OP - if you don't want to add muscle mass, I don't get why are you even asking about protein supplements. Just keep doing what you do.

Saying that normal person needs 2 g of protein per kg is very harmful advice, especially for liver and kidneys. In longer term, this intake might damage them. Unless you are aiming for world-class bodybuilding competition and you train accordingly, don't go over 1-1.5 g per kg, depending on how intense your workout is.

Another story - I don't think with usual office guy working out in evening, protein intake should be counted per day. What I mean - when you eat lunch with 30-40g of protein, I am not sure how much it helps in recovery of workout done 20:00-21:00 for example. Most of things have already moved on in digestive system, let's say beyond reach of body

Just my 2 centimes...

Sorry, on re-reading what I posted I realise it isn't very clear. I wrote:
If you're lifting a lot of weight with the intention of building significant amounts of muscle, you need to be consuming a lot of protein (and a lot of calories in general). The general rule of thumb is that you should be consuming about 2g of protein per day for every kilo in bodyweight. So a 100kg bodybuilder should be consuming about 200g of protein a day.

2g of protein per kilo is absolutely not what a normal person should be consuming on a daily basis. It's what someone who is doing serious weight training might aim for if they are looking to build significant amounts of muscle mass. It's also why every body builder you ever meet is constantly stuffing their face with eggs, protein shakes, chicken breasts and tuna fish.

And why they always smell of eggy farts.

You can get more than enough protein from a glass of milk after a workout compared with one of these protein shakes.

You need about 60g of protein a day. A snack after a workout giving you 10g (a large glass of milk) sounds about right to me.

(We're talking of normal people here).

The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of protein according to U.S. government standards is 0.8 gram per kilogram (2.2 pounds) of ideal body weight for the adult.

The position of the International Society of Sport Nutrition is that exercising individuals ingest protein ranging from 1.4 to 2.0 g/kg/day.

That's what I wrote (for my body weight, anyway).

I think people who exercise intensely (hard, for many hours) every day probably have some idea of what they need in the way of protein.
Personally, I don't undertake exercise intensely exercise everyday so I don't need that much protein.

But, to be honest, I have absolutely no idea how much protein I consume everyday - life's too short.

Re: Need advice buying protein shakes

I take hydrolized whey protein an hour after each workout. Almost no carbs, and very low calories. Still losing body fat in the process.

I take Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydro Whey. For every 39g serving, you get 30g of protein. 2g of carbojydrates, 0g sugar, for a total of 120 calories. Body fat is dropping, and muscle tone increasing. I'm tonng up for summer to make up for a chubby winter.

I just noticed this is a thread from 2012 that you revived from the dead.

I no longer trust the US government recommendations on nutrition, as it is proven to be tilted in favor of its agricultural producers.
