You mean to say its value for money and good ? My wife is just 30 days to due date. She was having it with milk before sleep with doctor's permission (only last 3 days). Today I bought Protinex (Diabetic care version) for her. After reading your post, she was wondering if she did something wrong !!

Dosage is 1-3 scoops with 5-18 oz of water. Strictly no shaking like other protein powders, but stir with spoon (may be it will explode as the name suggests !). Also strict break of 4 weeks after 12 weeks of usage. Overall the red see-through bottle, instructions, writings on the bottle etc. make it look like some bomb/atomic powder that can shoot someone to the space !

Ordering online from US can be an expensive affair in the form of duty and shipping charges. Best way ask someone who is coming from there to bring it for you. You can purchase from here and get it shipped to his residence in US - saves shipping charges to India and duty as well.

Alternatively if you dont have anyone coming from US then buy it from here. Will still come out cheap in comparison to online ordering.

why buddy.

trust me, in pregnancy don't even fall for "food for two". regular food is just fine. and experiments with supplements? I will never do that.

we can take it to another thread, but she just needs good food in regular amounts. any extras and supplements are going to get her more towards gestational diabetes and more complications. We have been thru that once.

and doctor's permission is not an answer. doctor is a human, and can not impose a lifestyle change unless medically needed.

Mansi, I strongly oppose the consumption of milk by anybody older than 5 years. as given in the link below, on of the dangers is calcium deficiency. I would suggest you to avoid heavy intake of milk if you are doing it just for calcium.

I will let experts comment on the article.

I'm not saying it's value for money. It doesn't have too much Whey and that too not of a great quality. I was wondering what the other additives are and hence asked you to post. I can't see anything potentially harmful for your wife. I'd just be concerned about bloating or gas, since she's consuming it with milk.
On the safer side though, stick to the Protinex. I think it contains mainly soy protein, which is good for women anyway. If I were in your place, I'd ask my wife to stay off all supplements. These are not tested or regulated by any official body and the fact that this particular Whey is not at all known, I'd avoid it completely. You never know what goes in the bottle.

Haha, make that a pharmaceutical dictionary and I'm not sure you'll find all of them in there either. Don't even bother, most of it is unnecessary. I'm a li'l nuts, so I keep reading up on such stuff, if only to know how useless it is

During pregnancy you shouldn't be taking these types of protein powders of these type of products. These are the fitness industry products and not for her.

I would suggest alternate protein powders like the ones prescribed by the WHO(world health org.) Company called nutrilite makes them.

As for NO, good luck with the 2 scoops, watch the intensity sky rocket are you sticking to the time period? Like 45 minutes before starting your workout or are you having it just before you leave the house?

She is overweight and diabetic in pregnancy. First pregnancy in 2005 had high diabetic issue which was resolved by regular insuline injection twice a day for over 4 months till the last day ! So, this time she became too cautious and went through a very hard dieting which is resulting in no weight gain (which is supposed to be 1 to 2 kg every month). Atleast no insuline injections, but doctor has recommended eating well for the remaining 30 days plus some protein support for a healthy baby. So, I thought my ayurvedic 'Muscle Man' could do some help, because I look at that tin as a step mother after getting my ON 100% banana flavoured whey from US ! Anyway she will continue with the newly bought Protinex.

Even if I read the entire list, I would not understand a bit about it. After you have posted the content which I missed, I feel like I am swallowing a mini scientific LAB every morning

LOL. That's why I specifically highlighted the creatine and caffeine parts. Exactly what I don't want you taking too much of.
And looking at all those entire plants, you're single handedly responsible for the destruction of the Amazon rainforest too
I'm hoping all the whey and NOS isn't causing any "backfiring" explosions

Offcourse its causing 1 explosion in every 10 mts of workout. Today I had just 1 scoop and had to control the air-pressure manually because there are ladies working out around. Tomorow I dont dare to take 2 scoops only because of this situation. May be the body will get used to it and force the excess air out through any of the upper openings and spare the lower one . Also this is one of the complaints I have read in few forums about this product.

@Vikram - Its good that you read up so much stuff(and are able to digest them as well). In my case i try to grab only as much knowledge which can meet my requirements.
Believe in keeping it simple and straight as excessive knowledge can also lead you to disbelieve each and every thing as then you tend to become too analytical for your own good.

I am going to start up my protein and creatine intake as well so will post the information for you to analyze and then let me know what you think about it as i would specifically like to know the kind of dosage which will be suitable for it.
Also do let me know if i should Pm it to you or just post here as am comfortable in both.

Cheers

Have you ever played any sports during your school/college days? Do you have any certificate of National or international level of that?
If you do have it then you will get a flat discount of 50% which will be around 12700 which i have payed recently doing the same.
And ya its standard for all gold gyms in India so do not get fooled if the people there tell you - No sir its from region to region.
CHeers!

Harry10, creatine is always 20g, 4 servings of 5g each for 3-4 days and then regular serving of 5g after every workout, along with the protein. If its creatine ethyl then there is no need to load and cycle.

I follow a cycle of 4 weeks on and 2 weeks off and it worked for me. Try to get in that range and then adjust according to what your body is telling you.(if using cmono)

Since golds gym has come up, what is the cost of personal training, "in general" since some trainers are going to charge thousands of rupees per hour while some will charge just hundreds.

btw, isn't talwalkars cheaper? Same equipment except golds is more glorified.
