I've been through most of the Whey Protein range EVOX, USN, SSN, CIPLA with similar results and no real side effects.

Recently I purchased Nutritech (for the first time) and noticed it upset my tummy. Also the recommended dosage after training says 4 scoops - 46 grams.

Now the my big question is How many grams of protein is your body able to absorb in one go?

None of the other mentioned above recommend such a high dosage.

They say you get maximal benefit from taking in 30g of protein in one meal.

However... bear in mind that when you eat protein, your body deliberately slows down gastric emptying (stomach emptying) to make sure it has time to absorb as much of the protein as it can. So, your 30g of whey protein is relatively quick digesting, but it still takes a couple of hours. I believe whey protein is absorbed at a rate of around 10g per hour. My point is, it isn't "in one go" like you think, it takes longer than that.

I used to do 4 scoops of Nutritech - but I started to wonder if there was any point. There are few studies that show a benefit to consuming that much protein, and those that do are of questionable quality. I'm just not sure how well that translates to the real world. I'm not convinced that if someone eats 240g of protein per day, that he will grow bigger in terms of muscle mass than someone who eats 120g of protein per day (which is already a lot).

I have some Cipla but actually prefer the nutritech taste. I have a few 2kg tubs if you wanna swap yours out.

Has anyone ordered any MyProtein lately? If so, how long did it take to arrive?

I want to place another order but I don't have much faith in our post office.

Dont know about incoming but something interesting happened the other day. My mother in law sent a package with the post office to the UK, normal mail option and it arrived in less than 14 days.

Good price on this. I bought the chocolate flavour the last time it was this price and it tasted very good.
