Q: I am shopping for a good protein supplement, what exactly should I be looking for?

A: Look for a protein powder that has a blend of whey including whey isolate, whey concentrate, and glutamine peptides. Look for protein powders low in fat and carbs, preferably less than 5 grams of each per serving, with a minimum of 16 grams of protein per serving. Also, check sodium content. Try to keep it less than 100 mg per serving at max (especially pre-contest). A good rule of thumb for people trying to build muscle is to consume about 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight. This can increase during contest prep anywhere from 1.5 to 2.0 grams per pound of bodyweight. I use Simple Whey by MHP. It has all the elements I look for in a protein powder, it's cost effective and tastes great.
