whey ??

hello everyone - quick ? about whey supp. i have been working out ( both strenght and cardio ) as well as eating a pretty good diet ( splurging every now and then ) for about 6 months. i am very happy with my results as i have dropped around 35 lbs and i am much leaner. i would like to start using a whey shake post workout but i am afraid that this may cause me to gain back alot of the weight that i have lost. i also notice in most products an enourmus amount of cholesterol.
i have always gotten great advice from this fourm and i know someone out there can help me out again on the whey issue.
thanks again everyone

Re: whey ??

The trick to working in protein shakes is to remove calories from somewhere else in your diet. If you just keep adding foods, of course you will gain weight. You just have to reorganize a bit to accommodate a hundred or so calories (depending on how much whey and what else you add to the shake).
And I don't see where there are huge amounts of cholesterol in whey. Isolates have almost none and around 50 mg is the highest I found in concentrates. Maybe you're looking at weight gainers?

Re: whey ??

Naxis is right again, cut a few calories from your other meals and you'll be fine. Make sure you avoid the weight gainers as they are the ones higher in calories and carbs.
I add protein powder to yoghurt or cereals and milk as well as having post workout protein shakes and it probably helps keep my weight down. I've dropped 60lbs steadily over 3 years and have been using protein powder for over 12 months now without putting any body fat back on.

Re: whey ??

thanks for the advice guy's. the powder i just bought doesnt have all cholesterol as i thought. it has 130 cal. w/ 1.5 g from fat and has 22 g of protein. so should i use 2 scoops post work out or just the one scoop?

Re: whey ??

one is usually enough. roughly 25% bodyweight in grams of protein for post workout. And dont forget to add carbs. That's equally important.
