Help with choosing the right protein powder

Hi,

Just a quickie(excuse any rude thoughts!LOL) I have been having trouble finding a good protein powder.

I was recommended Maximuscle promax which I found worked fairly well and Cyclone also worked well these however have both disagreed with my stomach and caused no end of toilet breaks at work.
These products are supposed to be for people with fragile stomachs and I've not found themsuitable for me.
Any help why? I would like a protein powder I can mix well has around 250-300 cals per shake and is not known to cause any problems if any one could help I'd be most greatful.
Also has anyone else experinced this problem.

I know it sound funny but really its not and I'm pretty fed up wasting money trying to find a good product.

Kindest regards Paul

    try www.myproteni.co.uk and get some plain whey. If you can drink milk ok its unlikely youre lactose intolerant, might just be the fillers and crap they use to flavour the promax. Myprotein have their own cyclone cooy called Hurricane which is cheaper and great quality too.

    Thanks,

    Im not latcose in because its only the protein products I've tried sofar that seem to cause the problem.

    This place you say you can get plain whey from can you add flavor to it?
    if so what is the best way as I've never done that before.

    plain whey can be flavored with anything really like crusha, nesquik powders, options powders, ribena, robinsons or even just drink it with water as it tastes like weak milk it isnt horrible just bland really. If you mix it with dextrose and malto you have sweet tasting milk

    Ok thanks will give it a try just don't want a thick tasting black current drink.
    P.S on maximustle it say for a 85kg man to consume aprox 4 shakes a day how ever I though it best to stick to 1g per lb of body weight.!?

    no no no no do not go with maximuscle's recommendations use whey for PWO only and eat REAl food. Seriously just read the articles to gain a better insight on how much protien you need etc as its person specific and not weight related. The only branded products i recommend are Reflex Whey and Nutrisport 90+. Otherwise bulk suppliers all the way mate trust me on this. The ratio for protein for the traiing athlete varies from 1.25g per pound of LEAN BODY MASS not body weight to anything up to 2g per LB of LBM.

    Thats interesting, I hear so many different things about what way or the right way protein should be taken I just kinda settled on 1g per lb.

    How ever I train with weights min 4 times a week and do cardio 3 times .

    I weigh in at 181 lbs exactly as from 6pm this evening.

    as a hyperthecial question if you were me how would you decide on the amount of protein needed?

    Aim for around 1.5 - 2g per 1lb lean bodyweight.

    Alrite m8, If tried the PHD whey cookie flavour, tastes o.k. but found it hard to mix, was a bit lumpey, but loads of people rate there products, personal choice m8. I prefer ON Gold standard. The only whey i get now. Haven't tried the bulk guys like my protein but hav heard they r good. A good website to get ur supps from is www.monstersupplements.com very fast delivery, execellent service and usely next day for free too.

    OK thanks.

    I'll try that, trouble is I don't like pork or beef or lamb so really stuck on chicken and tuna and shakes so need something thats good.

    Anyone in the UK ever bought products from European supplements?
