I have been on a muscle building regimen for about 6 months now with good success, but I want great success. Now, I know Dr Kurt Harris believes that bodybuilding is only for vanity, but I'm not with him on that. I want to see what my body is really capable of. I want to maximize potential, or at least move closer toward that goal, for a variety of reasons.
That being said, I did a lot of research of whey protein powders and settled in on Whey Cool by Designs for Health. They use a raw milk grass fed cold processed whey protein concentrate and the ingredients are better than most others. I really like the powder but it's quite pricey and many people on PaleoHacks have made good points in other threads that spending the extra coin on grass fed raw milk powders might not be worth it. As a counter-argument, I think the 4 best selling points is the high CLA content, the live cultures, the cold processing with no chemicals, and the fact that it's un-denatured.
So my real question here is... what about using homemade liquid raw whey made from raw grass fed milk. We make whey all the time and always have a big jar of it in our fridge. I did some pokin around online to try to find the protein composition of raw liquid whey and how I might be able to incorporate that into my post workout drink instead of using powder, but my findings came up short of a satisfiable conclusion.
I know whey powders are not revered by all as fully Paleo. However, circumventing that argument here... Anyone know how I could use raw liquid whey to help build more muscle? I'm not worried about flavor. I can take care of that. I just want to know about how much to use, how effective might it be, and how much protein I could get from the liquid. Also, if anyone has an actual testimony, that would be mighty splendid.
Thanks so much!
