Walmart Supplements

Hey everyone. I have been unable to get enough protein in my daily diet. I can not even match my weight so I think I am going to have to start taking protein powders. Unfortunatly money is an issue . I checked prices at a nutrition store and walmart. I usually dont support walmart but the prices were a lot lower there. Do you think it would be a bad idea to buy whey protein powder from walmart? I was also wondering if it is a bad or good idea to take creatine powder with the protein powder? And one last question, which is a better choice: creatine pills or creatine powder? Thanks alot for the info.

    It might mix horribly and taste awful. Have you not tried to buy in bulk online?

    Where do you live? States or Canada?

    I'm guessing you're bulking and want to gain weight?
    Do you just need to up your protein or is it calories in general that you need to up so that you can gain weight?

    The protein powder is not really what you need to get. It can be a convenient protein source of course, but you should go to food first IMO... then again, it depends on what you're looking for exactly.

    Creatine pills are a waste of money use only the powder.
    About walmart protein powder. Look up the brand walmart markets online. Remember walmart buys in bulk so the discount is often huge. How it will mix is down to The powders composition. I have found most whey tastes bad, irritates my stomach, and in general doesn’t dissolve well. But that might be because I use so many scoops of powder often 3 in one shot. If you use a blender the powder dissolves perfect.
    Things to look at before buying whey:
    1. number of servings
    2. amount of protein per servings
    3. carbs per serving – is sugar added
    4. %EFA’S

    And im sure im forgetting something.

    The Wal-Mart brand might be your best bet.

    Perhaps the type of the actual whey... isolate, concentrate, hydrolysate, etc.

    A good read if not already seen: http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/article-creatine.asp
