I get this question a lot – “Mark, which protein product do you recommend?”

This post is for my US readers since they make up the vast majority of my readership (I’ll cover other areas later).

UPDATE: I now HIGHLY recommend The Protein Works for all my UK and European readers. They have the best quality supplements in Europe. The Protein Works is also where I get my own supplements.

So what criteria is used to decide upon a great whey protein supplement?

  1. It’s got to be Whey Protein Isolate as opposed to whey protein concentrate
  2. It’s got to be low in carbs
  3. It can’t be ridiculously expensive

Why Isolate?

Whey Isolate is simply a purer protein than concentrate. That means that for every scoop you take, you are getting more actual protein and less of anything else i.e. sugar and fat. A protein powder containing around 90% protein will do the trick nicely!

As a low-carber I also want the least amount of carbohydrate in my protein shakes. I’d rather spend my daily carb allowance on actual food thank you very much!whey protein isolate

One product that fits the bill brilliantly is Zero Carb Isopure by ‘Nature’s Best.’ As the name suggests it has no carbs per serving and is around 90% protein.

And there’s a great bonus with this product. As you know, I recommend 5 grams of L-Glutamine in your post-workout shake. In every serving of Zero-Carb Isopure you get 4.6 grams of L-Glutamine along with your 50 grams of protein. So, for post workout nutrition, just add your creatine and you’re all set! This product is perfect for both bulking up and cutting fat.

You’ll save money by not having to buy the glutamine separately and also, by ordering through Amazon.com, you’ll get free delivery.

(Please note that the Dutch Chocolate flavor contains 3g of carbs per serving).

Just looking a great all-round whey protein at a good price?whey protein

In that case I think Optimum Nutrition Whey Protein is the way to go.

It comes in a variety of great flavors and should fit anyone’s budget.

Enjoy it!
