    Question Can anyone recommend a Protein Powder?

    Primal Fuel
    I am a college baseball player looking for a good postworkout protein supplement. I know that it is not optimal to use a protein shake, but most days it is all I can do while driving around from the gym to baseball games or work. I have done tons of research and am trying to find a protein that is healthy and fits the primal diet.

    I recently ordered BioActive Nutrients Grass Fed Whey Protein to see how I like it.

    Also I wanted to ask if anyone has information on Vega Sport Protein?

    (Vega Sport - Natural Plant-Based Performance Protein)

    I would also like the protein to be low in carbs and fat and not have any artificial sweeteners. Recently I learned that almost all protein powders on the market are "instantized" using soy lecithin. this is what makes them mix well with water/milk. Soy lecithin has a long list of effects, mostly because when it is made, harsh chemicals are used. I am hoping to find a protein that is made with minimal processing and is as pure as possible.

    Thanks!!

    I use Gold Standard whey protein. It doesn't taste phenomenal, but a one-scoop serving is:

    Calories 130
    Calories From Fat 10
    Total Fat 1g
    Saturated Fat 0.5g
    Trans Fat 0g
    Cholesterol 30mg
    Sodium 60mg
    Total Carbohydrate 5g
    Dietary Fiber 1g
    Sugars 2g
    Protein 24g

    I use this product because it does not contain any soy.

    I use Bluebonnet Whey Protein Isolate. It has 3 ingredients, whey, vanilla (or cocoa depending on the flavor), and stevia.

    A 33gr scoop has 116 cal
    0 fat
    3 carb
    26 protein

    It is from non rBGH treated cows and it actually tastes good.
