PostSubject: Protein scoop measures   Wed Jan 09, 2008 3:21 pm

Hey guys,
i just bought this protein.
http://www.twinlab.com/spn-product.cfm?Product_ID=1021&Subcategory_ID=MASS

My problem is that the scoop that came inside says '90cc' and i have no idea how to convert that to grams so i can take the recommended 25grams per day. The indications says to take 2-4 scoops per day but i think thats ridiculously to much... or am i wrong?

Thanks.- sunny

PD: Im looking foward to build muscle (even tho you can judge from my before pic that im a little fat) but if anyone has an idea on what amount i need to take daily i will apretiate the recomendation.

Hey Manny,

Is there no nutritional info on the side of the protein powder bucket? That should usually tell you how much is in one serving. I also notice that it says that it is a Carbohydrate Protein blend. That may be the reason why it suggests to take to many scoops in a day. The protein is Whey protein Isolate or whey portein complex. Both have very low carbs 1-2g and high protein, 20-25g per scoop. Also when you say to get the recommended 25g of protein a day where do you get that figure? Do you mean only in suplement for to get 25g or in total for the day? Because from what i have read for best results when trying to gain muscle you need to consume aboput 1g of protein for each pound you weigh.

Hi Mike.

The 25g recomendation i got it from Arnel's eating plan page ( http://www.iwantsixpackabs.com/articles/eating.html ) . Somewhere in the middle says

'My Nutritional Tip Before, During, and After Working Out: Based on research, consuming protein before, during, and after workouts help increase muscle mass more compared to any other time. My suggestion is to make a protein shake prior to working out, sipping it before and throughout the session, and a little bit more right after your workout session. To maximize your fat loss, drink a total of 20-40grams of whey protein before, during, and after working out. '

So i decided that 25 is enough for me...

About the Carbohydrate-protein shake: Is this bad? I decided to go with it because as i said, im looking to build muscles, and on the bucket info panel says that this combination is specially formulated to gain lean mass. I'm thinking on consuming this bucket first then the next one to be pure whey protein. Im not good on this area so any suggestions or ideas im all ears, please.

Thanks a lot for the help on the side info panel. I did figured out now that i need to take about 1 1/2 scoops to get around 25g of protein.

Take care man. cheers

Well its good that you figured out how much that you need to be taking. I figured that you had ment the 25g was just to be consumed by drinking the protein shake but i just wanted to make sure. As for the Carbohydtare-protein blend i am not sure on that. I have only ever taken just protein suplement, nothing with a carbohydrate also. I dont know how many carbs are in it but just make sure that if you are trying to follow the meal plans and keep your meals a certain amount of calories, once you add the carb-protein mix into milk ( or whatever it is you mix into) and if you have a piece of fruit with just watch out you are not comsuming too much. From the look of arnels meal plans it seems to be mostly low carbs and when carbs are consumed it is in small amounts. So you might just want to see how many carbs and calories are in one scoop ( and then multiply that by 1.5) just to see.

Thats just my take on it.

Hey Manny,

I actually use a weight (is it called that?) to measure how much powder I feel into my shaker or glas. I don't trust the spoon/scooper provided within the bucket when I bought it.

I consume the 40g/day and at the same time I totally stick to Arnels nutrition advice, which is high protein/low carbs. Getting more protein will make you feel full and you don't have to eat that much.

Take care!

I'm using Nature's Best Isopure Zero Carb. You can pick it up through Amazon for around $30 USD for a 3lb container. Unfortunately only GNC carries the 7lb container and it's quite expensive.

As the title says it has Zero carbs. This was important for me as I eat enough carbs as is. Also I was looking for a supplement that was low in fat (1g), cholesterol (5mg), and lactose free. I've tried other protein mixes that contained lactose and they make me feel like crap. As an added bonus it includes many vitamins and minerals. Each scoop is 25g ion exchange whey protein. The recommend serving is two scoops but I just do one with 16oz water. I picked up the "Pineapple Orange Banana" flavor and it doesn't taste nasty. But don't put it in your oatmeal. Laughing

I'm not a connoisseur by any stretch, but I've tried several different types of proteins and the best tasting one I've ever found is by Beverly International. I use the Muscle Provider and Ultimate Muscle Protein. There website is www.bevnut.com. Even if you don't want to go that route, the website has some good info on it about nutrition and weight training in general. I recommend checking it out.

Hey guys, Thanks a lot for the info.

I migh consume this one anyways, because it was kinda expensive and it would suck to just throw it away, but as Mike says ill try to adjust the rest of my eating to stay close to Arnels carbs intake recomendations. I'll get a zero carb (or pretty low) protein bucket when im done with this one. Thanks to Danny, Jamie and Burgs as well for the recomendations, Greatly appretiated.

Keep up the great work, i cant wait to see some of your 'in the process' results cheers
