I have a question to ask. I know there must be quite a bit of stuff going on about this, but my question is a bit specific, and in case I end up with a bunch of questions, I’d rather get in touch with people directly, rather than read discussions in which I did not participate at all.
I’m a vegetarian, and at the moment I’m struggling a bit on the protein level (laziness and also stupidly the inability to soak pulses and have time to let them cook properly), so I eat a lot of eggs and cheese , but I know it’s not great for cholesterol (and I have it).
Since I also do a lot of sports (weight room and running), I really don’t want to lose muscle mass or have protein deficiencies.
I bought a jar of powdered vegetable protein from the drugstore, but it’s vanilla flavored and just gross. Even mixed with fruit juice, it doesn’t work.
So I’m looking for information on protein supplements; I would like to find some that have no taste (or really as little as possible), which are okay for vegetarians, and which do not make me gain weight or bloat (stay at my weight / my build is fine, lose too , but especially not inflate!).
Thank you !
I use Weider products that I like when it comes to taste afterwards, I don’t know if it’s ok for vegetarians?
Whey is whey protein (whey) so on the vegetarian side it’s Ok.
Whey is a fast-absorbing protein that must be taken in the morning, before and after exercise (it allows to nourish and to promote muscle recovery). It will not make you “bloat” if you have a more cardio oriented training than hypertrophy (muscle development).

There are tasteless whey, but honestly there are delicious ones: here are some opinions on whey:
You can also couple your whey with casein which is a protein (always obtained from milk) with slow assimilation in order to feed your body over a longer period:
I have read in many forums that most whey are not vegetarian, due to the bovine serum albumin they contain
While trying to find something I came across this:
http://alrindustries.com / produ cts / humapro-tablets are these pills? So, taste level, should you be okay?
And if not, if I go to a fitness store, I imagine that it is not possible to taste …? I still wouldn’t want to spend 50 € on something I can’t stand the taste of …
Oh no, most whey don’t have bovine serum albumin but rather lactalbumin which comes from milk.
Whey is whey protein, it is extracted directly from cow’s milk and therefore perfectly vegetarian (not vegan on the other hand …).
The cheapest that I found is on
http://fr.myprotein.com/nutrit […] 0943.html, it is shipped by chronopost from England, very fast delivery in 2-3 days max.
Protein can make you gain weight but it will not be fat but muscle but given your diet which is very low in protein you will take just enough muscle and protein to be healthy with whey.
For a woman it is at least 0.8 * your weight in protein so as not to have a deficiency, but it is more recommended to take the same amount of protein as your weight in kg.
