protein powders vs. whole foods


Recommended Posts

I am training to compete in fitness at the Natural Olympia next month. I usually adhere to a whole foods plant based diet. My non vegan coach wants me to eat more protein powder and less carbs. I am looking for any science on protein powders v. Whole foods or anyone's experience. Thanks

In my opinion, you're going to need the powder to achieve those necessary macros. At one month out, trust your coach and go represent vegans at the show! (afterall, you did hire him/her based on results with other competitors)

 

Focus on the show now...challenge the science later. Good luck...please post results!

For the most part I try to do whole foods is much as I can. It is great to supplement with protein powder as well but no more than one time per day. I try to do my protein powder right at the end of my workout because it is easier than getting a whole meal.
