A stupid question..

Sorry if this was asked before but I couldn't google a decent answer and a search of the forums returned nothing:

How many grams of whey isolate are in a tablespoon? What about creatine? I used to take whey in the bottled form and I recently bought a tub of Reflex whey and recommended serving size is 30 grams but it doesn't say how exactly do you measure 30 grams.

Thanks

    You're right - it is a stupid question.

    Why don't you use a set of scales?

    I don't have a set of scales because 1) I don't cook 2) the gym I go to has a great set of scales that I use to weigh myself.

    Personally I think this testicle tenderness is due to my recent return to AM cardio. I do it naked on a recumbent bike and my gonads tend to flop about.

    I'd say 30g is about 4-5 heaped teaspoons.


    all my scoops are about the size of an eggcup



    when I have a protein drink I tend to get a pint glass and fill it roughly 1/4 full of powder and the rest water and estimate it's about 50-60g protein

    I wish I was more attractive like Dagless.

    Mike, muscletalk has been buzzing with talk/debate about this recently, but just how fast are your glutes?

    Nothing contributes so much to tranquilizing the mind as a steady purpose - a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye.

    No fixed answer to this Mike, all depends on the density of the powder, hence a tablespoon of creatine will weigh a little more than a tablespoon of whey and one company's whey may weigh a little more than another company's whey.

    Therefore investing in a set of scales is the only reliable answer I'm afraid.

    Jake, my glutes are really fast. I am currently into sprinting and that contributes to their speed.
