Protein Powder

  • Eat more dairy, more eggs, more chicken and more fish. There is no need for protein powder supplements. Most protein powders are poor quality, full of sugar/artificial sugars and chemicals and they taste horrible.
  • Definitely recommend protein powder if you are taking running/training seriously. Post run, your muscles will soak up that stuff to aid with recovery and growth. Yes, you can get a lot of protein via food sources, but sometimes you need more than what you will solely get via 3-4 meals a day. And this is what supplements are for. Whey protein is always a winner, as it's aborbed quickly and easily by the bloodstream. Ideal for post workout.

    I adore metal music. And running. Preferably at the same time.
  • I have a whey protein shake the afternoon of my run. Possible placebo thing.
  • I prefer to have a proper meal rather than a protein shake. Also you need more carbohydrates than protein. But I guess that you can use it as an increment of your diet.
  • I use whey protein after a workout, its a quick and easy way to get protein but I also eat plenty of protein anyway. I also throw in a couple of raw eggs and a banana. I personally use bulk powders caramel flavour.
  • I just plan on eating more protein rich foods, maybe in time if I'm not reaching the target amount then I will think about the protein supplements
  • When I trained for my first marathon I just drank some chocolate milk and ate a chicken sandwich after a really long run. After a medium run I’d just have a bowl of muesli with some chopped almonds and bananas on top.
  • Always get protein after workout dude!
  • I have used phd diet wheyba lot and found it very good for recovery and weight control, nice flavours to
  • I have now ditched the whey and gone onto leucine powder, this is the protein that triggers the recovery. The rest you can get from food.

    Good to see the people marketing protein powders are doing a good job. I've attached something I found on Kenyan runners' diets. I've posted it before but think it's worth seeing again. These are guys probably running sub 2:15 marathons, doing well over 100 miles per week. They don't use any protein supplements and have very little meat in their diet and people think they need protein powder jogging 40 miles a week.

    Should easily be able to get enough protein from your diet. It is the BCAAs that help with recovery, but people tend to go overboard and take a BCAA supplement on top of a protein supplement. I used to do that, but stopped. Firstly it cost me too much, and secondly, I realised after some research that I did not need it!
  • Extra protein - it all depends on what you want to do with your body, and how you want to look... if you want to keep/build muscle, then protein helps keep muscle mass....so extra protein will help.

    If you want to slim down, and just run and are not worried about looking like a bodybuilder then a normal diet should be fine.

    Don't forget excessive running will burn of muscle mass unless you take in enough protein... but protein shakes carry calories,, so watch out..you could end up putting on weight... 

  • I've been running for 4 years, I run 5-10k every day and I've realized that taking extra protein is really important, for me, it works really well! I take sunestron supplement after my every day run and It helps me a lot to recover and to get energy.

    I take whey protein before a run instead of a meal and its made a massive difference to how i feel. Not being bloated for one and also not hungry.
