Im already on protein but im just wondering is the holland and barrett whey protein any good? It does be half price regular enough and i might get a tub? Anyone have any experience with it.
Quality sees okay but horrendously overpriced compared to other companies.
Check out myprotein.ie, Discountsupplements.ie or bulk powders for much cheaper.
Here Here. Myprotein.ie, great site. Whey, creatine and caffeine cheap as chips, all you'll ever need!
Are they good quality though? Are they reliable to deliver?
I find myprotein great. Takes two days to deliver from UK e.g. ship on Monday, receive on Wednesday.
I try to avoid buying ANYTHING from H&B. Overpriced - everything. Even when they might run any of their deceptive deals.
Staff in Ireland are generally friendly, but in the UK I've noticed they're consistently miserable and mostly inept.
H&B is usually the one singled out as poor quality, being hard to mix and not a great taste.
Don't want to hijack thread here but just wondering can you use whey protein if you do running cycling and weights?
There is nothing magical about whey, its just another dairy product, its used in several foods you probably eat already, like ice cream and some biscuits. I would drink whey shakes whether I lifted or not, I like the taste, just like I eat cheese & chicken since I like it.
Some people go on about it like its a steroid like drug, I remember a woman in work saying her cousin was "on protein shakes", though some will have other substances in the mix.
i bought the Whey from H&B myself. 3 weeks a go to be exact - 40€ for 2. i choosed the natural flavour - or in another words with no flavor added. it taste like a strong milk, but i am trying to be inovative. You can shake it with fresh pure OJ (orange j.) for better taste, but i do use blender for each shake, slices of mango with slim milk + whey form H&B omg... what a taste!! pure power... or just a slim milk after training. r.. i had whey from biotech as well. i am not talking about price but i like more the H&B... + just for flavour.
they maybe better priced products but you cant go wrong as far as i am concerned.
yeh... the women in the shop in H&B was saying similar story to me... like his cousing is on shakes and he feels great ... "lol"

looking for a bit of advice here. I am wondering should i order some whey protein? I dont want to bulk out or anything but would it give me additional energy before workout?
My understanding is energy from carbs and protein for repair of muscles.
So if you're looking for energy, carbs are the way to go.
bro i am not pro by any means, but i am 90% positive whey is only like a extra support for better recovery. there are better products for power/energy gain.
