This very question regarding whey protein supplements, and protein supplements in general, not specifically whey, is debated quite a lot over the years. I’ve actually seen it come up time and time again in bodybuilding, gym, health forums, in gyms and so on. With their being differing opinions on it I will give you my take which I think anyone reading this will definitely seem sense in what is written here. With that being said, looking at ones diet who goes to the gym regularly and wants to build muscle, a protein supplement can certainly have its place in this diet. However, I will state now, that it is more than possible to get sufficient protein from ‘real’ food or everyday foods, without having to rely on a powdered supplement. Protein supplements have their place, lets say that your protein requirements are high depending if you are training that day or is a recovery day. Ideally you will want high protein and high fats, but lower carbohydrates. In this case, it can be more difficult to obtain the protein from just normal meals, and this is where the protein supplement, like phd pharma whey, can come in really handy.
