Hi,
I'm in search of a good Protein Supplement (powder). What I want is a supplement that increases muscle but does not increase my fat percentage. I now weigh 74kg and I want to go to 70kg but I just want to loose fat and no muscle. So if somebody has some good advice... I would like to stay in the product range of "MAXIMIZE" and "PERFORMANCE". Now I recently purchased "Superior Protein Complex" from performance and "Whey Protein" and "Amino Gainer" from maximize.

Thx

By far, the best whey protein supplement that I've used is Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Protein.

Besides cycling, I do a lot of weight training. I don't want to lose all my lean muscle mass to the intense cycling I do.

I have found this works great. It has the highest amount of protein and the lowest amount of fat of any protein supplement I've found.

You can check it out here:

Its available so many different places. I bought my last 10 lb supply from Amazon.com.

Here's what's in it.

Chicken does it for me. Protien supplements are just that, supplements. If you aren't getting enough protien from natural sources, you use the supplement to reach your desired goal. Chicken breast= 0 fat. Taste good too. :D

Whoa! This makes at least two of us who are on both cyclingforums.com and bodybuilding.com! I have never used Optimum's protein supplement, instead I use a meal replacement made by Champion Nutrition called Ultramet. I also stock up on MetRx's protein bars when they are buy one get one free at my local grocery store.

Both are about strength and health yet cycling is about endurance and a lean physique while body building shifts more toward short-term explosive power and bulk. Seems a slightly odd, though not inappropriate mix.

The need for supplimental protein in either pursuit is certainly debatable.
