Today I bought soy protein powder. I was wandering if will make me gain weight? I’ve been a vegetarian for almost three months, and I don’t think I’m getting quite enough protein. I was planning on drinking a protein drink every morning. I just dont want to gain weight. I usually walk or run for about thirty minutes everyday. I’m planning on bumping up to forty five minutes soon.
Is there a difference btw the different types of sports protein powders out there? Like, whats the diff btw whey or soy or any other kind? And is one kind better for a weightlifter than, say, a vegetarian looking for a simple supplement? I’m trying to gain some lean muscle and drop a few pounds, so which brand would help me gain lean muscle without making me gain weight?
