Just and fyi for some people. I use protien powder all the time when I do any sort of muscle work out. But remember you need other food as well and you should make sure you are hitting all of your nutrition goals for the day. I almost always never do a protein shake by itself. I usually eat something near or when I finish my workout soon followed by the protein shake. Seems to be working out well.
I realize this is from a few months ago.. Did you start with some protein? If so are you liking it? I am in love with my protein supplement ProFit, I use it as a meal replacement! I make it all different ways! I could give you lots of different ways to make it :)
I generally get mine from GNC. If you get their store card, you get 20% off during the first week of the month. I wait until that week and then look at the sales and clearance items (which can be combined with the 20% off). The GNC Total Lean Protein 25 and the GNC Lean Muscle Meal are the same products, just the Total Lean line is marketed toward women and the Muscle Meal line is marketed toward men. While both lines have other items more focused toward men/women, those particular items (Lean Protein 25 and Lean Muscle Meal) are convenient to know about (if you happen to like one or the other) because you can switch back and forth depending on which one happens to be on sale at the moment.

My husband is buying some protein powder and I'm interested in using it myself. I've never used protein powder and just wondering if it is a good idea to incorporate into my diet. I have begun strength training. Any suggestions would be great!
