I read on a website a few months ago that there's no need for stuff like protein shakes, etc. A banana and a large glass of semi-skimmed milk immediately after a workout does the job. Don't know how accurate that is though.

Protein shakes can be helpful in gaining strength and muscle mass. However, they should only be used as a supplement in addition to one's regular diet. More often than not, people think that having protein shakes will make them big and strong, which is simply not true. If you do this, you will likely cause damage to your body in the long run. If you structure your diet correctly, there is really not a need for protein shakes. Most people don't even know how much protein, minerals/amino acids (which is mostly what you get from protein shakes) they have in their diet to begin with. Then it makes no sense to have more of these as you may well be having too much!

PS. Please do not go off topic and start this halal debate over here too now.

Very true. I'm keeping well away from protein shakes and the like. If I eat sensibly by ensuring everything I need in terms of protein is included in my diet, I think I might be okay.

Me and few Singh I know used: Reflex Instant Whey - https://monstersuppl...=48&Search.y=16

I used to use this, but it contains Bovine serum albumin,

Ingredients: Reflex Instant Whey - 909g Ingredients: Ultra filtered whey protein concentrate and ultra filtered whey protein isolate (43% B-Lactoglobulinm 18% Glycomacropeptide, 16% Lactorferrin and others, 15% a-Lactalbumin, 5% Immunoglobulin, 3% Bovine Serum Albumin.), Flavourings, Natural Colourings, artificial sweeteners (sucralose, acesulfame k), Digezyme, (digestive enzyme blend), Lactospore probiotics.

http://en.wikipedia....e_serum_albumin

the albumin is extracted from the blood of cows. its annoying because i have 2 tubs unused and i enjoyed the taste. Looking at the nutrisport 90+ it looks like it is suitable. http://www.nutrisport.co.uk/90-Plus-Protein.

they seem to do a vegan version of this too so no dairy products either http://www.nutrisport.co.uk/90-Plus-Vegan

think i might try some nutrisport, thanks for that!!!

fateh
