You will find time if you are committed and dedicated.

It's very common for weightlifters to eat 6-8 meals per day.

Hey willystyle. If you want to order in bulk for you and your friends let me know. I can work you out a volume discount (depending on how many lbs of protein you want). Im a retailer and have done this sort of thing before.

Its very similar to ON's, I always get the 'very berry strawberry' flavor.

TP.com is the best place to order for bulk, no customs/duty fee

Thanks Louie69, I just ordered it. Hopefully it's good as you claim

Just remember that it is unflavored. If you wanna do things cheap its the way to go. Just mix it with water and sorta just pour it down your throat.

I don't recommend TrueProtein, though they are great in price, they do not mix well, and doe not taste good compared to ON.

Don't think of it as food. Think of it as fuel. If your car runs fine on 87 octane is there any point putting 94 octane.

I'm sorry, but even if it tastes like shit, that stuff doesn't mix well at all compared ON. It still ends up lumpy after shaking it for like 30-60secs, not a great feeling when that's going down your throat.

Pretty good deal!

I bought 3 x 5lb tubs from Whey Depot for $115CAD

2x Chocolate
1x Vanilla

Vanilla tastes kinda funky. Its not disgusting but I'd rather drink the chocolate flavour haha.

Hi sorry for bringing up an old thread but

I'm planning on buying from TP (it hurt my wallet buying a 5lb tub of Prostar 100% Whey Protein from GNC at $58 after taxes which will last me about 3.5 weeks if I do 3 scoops/day).

I'm thinking of ordering the 25 lb ones as posted earlier with the flavour packs.
Just have a question:

there's 2 I'm considering

https://www.trueprotein.com/Product_...id=22&pid=6842
which was posted earlier
and
https://www.trueprotein.com/Product_...id=22&pid=6841

which is slightly more expensive, but it gives a list of the additional "Amino Acid Profile" at the bottom of the page. I was just wondering what do you guys think? Should I go for the 2nd one because of the additional amino acids? Or is it not that big a deal? (My Prostar one has the same amino acid profile list on the bottle, but the amount per serving (in mg) isn't as great as the TP one).

Also, any luck with mixing the TP ones? Hard to shake and mix? Lumpy?

thanks !

I still don't get how it was possible to get the 25lb recession whey protein from TP for $140 after shipping...

cuz after conversion (i'm assuming 1.16 for Visa) it comes to about $160 CAD.
I guess it's still pretty good, but the fact that it has no flavour kinda sucks for me. If I add 2 flavour packs (NON-premium since premiums are more expensive and each pack is only good for about 3-4 lbs whereas the *natural* ones are god for 10-15lbs)...it comes to $172 CAD (this is after the 5% discount too).

those of you who bought it....are you guys talking $140 USD or CAD? Because if it's CAD how the heck you guys do it? Or was the price lower or something

I'm glad you made this thread Willy. I'm curious as where to get cheap decent quality whey protein as well.

+ 1 on the doesn't mix well stuff. I can never get the stuff to mix well when I do it by hand, I usually use this electronic shake/blender that's a small size (u can get it for $20 bucks at superstore). works pretty effectively, but I still get lumps once in awhile. I think that's now the most important thing I want in the protein (since most are pretty similar to content anyways). I just want something that MIXES WELL when I'm shaking by hand.

On a side note, I notice that chocolate flavours are always the hardest to mix. Vanilla flavors are always the easiest to mix.
