Here's the lowdown on Myofusion from the horse's mouth. I'd written to Gaspari Nutrition and this is the reply:

Vikram,

The myofusion will have a seal around the lid, and an inner seal for freshness which will come off when you twist the cap off. Where are you purchasing it from? Myofusion will have "product of Canada" on it.

I purchased ON 100% Whey and i honestly regret it. Elite was way better. Forget the taste, even the power texture and the 'feel post drinking for elite is better. ON is however slightly Lumpy and not that tasty either. Besides that Elite seems to have lesser Carbs that ON. No idea what the whole hype about ON is anyways, its over priced compared to the rest too!! Ps. I have my Protein in Milk directly post workout.

So how many scoops of whey do you guys consume daily anyway? I ususally consume one, deciding on shifting up to 2.

depending on the intensity/type (weights, martial arts, etc) of workout, the max that i have consumed in the recent past is one scoop of whey (24g protein) post workout and one scoop of casein (24g protein) at night. Thats a total of 48g of protein supplementation in a day.

How many scoops does one consume in a day really depends on the individuals requirement, I consume around 200 grams of protein in a day out which 72 grams comes from Whey protein(i.e 3 scoops of 24g protein each).

Ideally it should be one gram per pound of your body weight. Thats how it is suggested normally. What kinda diet you are taking to consume the rest 128 gms?

Is that not too much protein for your body.
Are you preparing for some body building competition.

Not really into competition but trying hard to get in shape that is worth competing. Currently i am on a low carb diet and have started cardio along with weightlifting so inorder to maintain my muscle mass i have to consume enough proteins. I lean muscle mass is around 155 so 200gms of protein is not too much for my body.

when you pare down the egg to whites-only, that really isn't much.

But I'm from the school that believes you can't consume enough protein, so that must be just me?


EDIT: To add to harry10's 1 pound protein per bodyweight thumbrule, it is pertinent to keep the target bodyweight in sight for calculations rather than your current bodyweight. (If I want to be 220 lbs, I should consume little more than 220 grams protein.) If it were me, I'd look at 1000+ grams a day.

To cut things short , ive turned football shaped from rugby ball shaped, . To make matters worse , its mangoes season and that's having an even adverse effect!

I know all the gurus and readers of this thread would suggest jogging or walking to start off with, but would like your suggestions on these so called elliptical trainers.

Which brands(available in India) are good for a big fat lump like me.I've been to a Slimfitindia showroom and they suggested to choose commercial equipment as home use ones cater to 85-90kgs and below(im 96kgs).The did have one that included a stepper function which i thought was perfect to change the rhythm and make things less boring.This was a commercial version(but "Made in India) retailing at 37k.

Help!

Arun

If only money could buy motivation! Join a gym instead, no?

I believe that too. Being a Veggie maintaining a 1 pound rule is highly tough in daily office routine let alone exceeding it!
However i read somewhere too much protein is also bad for health,let me search for that article.

+1. No machine can get you in shape till motivation is there. I believe along with cardio weight traning is also essential.
Gurus can advise better though

Edit- Check Precor equipment if they are available in India.
We use this one in our gym Precor: Consumer Elliptical Cross Trainers (EFX)

For that kind of money, better to join a good gym and hire a personal trainer also for a few months.You will have access to all kinds of equipment in the gym rather than just one equipment costing lots of money.
