How to pick up good protein

  1. 1. How to pick up good protein Copyright © Muslim Fit Malaysia 2014.
  2. 2. 1. Mass Gainer Vs Protein Powder  First, you need to understand that not all protein powders are created equally.  There are powders that are known as mass gainers. A mass gainer is basically a powder that includes proteins, carbs and fats. Although, all three of those macronutrients are required in a diet, when picking a protein powder, a person should never purchase a mass gainer if they really only want a protein powder.  Some people who are new to lifting often make the mistake of purchasing one of these so called protein powders not knowing that they are also consuming much more than just protein which may contribute to excess fat gain due to the excess calories.  When choosing a powder make sure it has the following:  Low Fat (1-5 grams is ok)  Low Carb (1-5 grams is ok)  High Protein (normally about 20-30 grams per serving) Copyright © Muslim Fit Malaysia 2014.
  3. 3. 2. The Test Of Time  Another factor to consider when picking a protein powder is to find out how long that company or product has been on the market.  My general guideline is to only consider products that have been around for at least three years and have received positive feedback.  Normally, if a product lasts this long it is because it is a quality product that people continue to purchase because it works.

  4. 4. 3. Natural And Pure Powders  The quality of a protein powder is in my opinion more important than the total quantity of protein.  Always look at the label when deciding on a protein powder and make sure it doesn't contain any more that 7-10 ingredients. Also, try and find a powder with more natural ingredients. Typically if you have a hard time pronouncing all the ingredient names, that might be a sign to put that one down and look for another one.  When choosing a powder it is also important to never get pulled in by advertisements that state it has so called "added ingredients" that will promote even more muscle growth.  Supplement companies use a dirty little trick where they will include a small trace amount of an extra ingredient that may be helpful in promoting more muscle gain on its own, but the amounts they include in their product is not enough to make a significant difference. When they do this, the price is normally inflated and not worth considering. Copyright © Muslim Fit Malaysia 2014.
  5. 5. 4. Concentrate, Isolate Or Casein  To make this simple, here is what you need to know.  In my experience, I have tried them all at different times in my training and have found that it really doesn't make a difference. Of course, that is just my opinion, but that being said, if you have the money and you truly believe the type of protein will make a or break your results, then here is a basic guideline.  Concentrate: This is a good source of protein powder that is absorbed at a moderate pace. Typically it is good to include this type between meals.  Isolate: Whey protein isolate is more rapidly absorbed and is recommended to have immediately following a workout to shuttle proteins and amino acids into the starving muscle cells.  Casein: Casein has a longer digestion period, more so than concentrate and isolate. Bodybuilders and many athletes normally include this type of protein as their final meal before bed as it provides a constant flood of amino's throughout the night during sleep.

  6. 6. 5. Stay Away From The Hype  Supplements manufacturers are notorious for hyping up their products with unrealistic claims and promises. DO NOT buy into the hype of major companies that price their product above and beyond what you really need to pay.  I am not saying their products are not good or that you will not see results with them, but rather, they are just not worth the cost they are charging.  Take the time to compare ingredients, company track records, and do not let the hype influence your decision.  I get my protein powder from a very generic company. The packaging is simple and there is not any excessive marketing tactics behind the product. The product is simply composed of high quality ingredients and I trust the company. That's all that matters. Copyright © Muslim Fit Malaysia 2014.
