EVERY supplement is a meme. Whey is only helpful if you are not getting enough protein from your food, and that's unlikely, because the recommendations are highly overstated

>>35012180
What reccomendations?

it's literally food. at this point you might as well call oats or chicken breast "supplements".

You really only need 35-40% or so of your body weight in protein. Whey protein is for non meat eaters that have a hard time getting quality protein. You know someones been lifting under 3 years when they use protein shakes. Stop taking whey and i can promise you can't tell the difference. If you want to lift heavy and have energy for better liftan you need carbs to get the weights up.

protein- the whole 2g/kg of bw/lbm etc. It's bs. Usually 1g/kg is enough.
>>
>>35014212
You need .82g per lb of lbm on a cut and .68 on a bulk.
Notice how I said LBM and not BW.

the only supplement that does anything is creatine.

Everything is a meme when you repeat it long enough.

Yeah, you need slightly more on a cut. Also, it's worth noting that only a fraction of it is used to build and repair muscle, the excess amount is only there to maintain nitrogen balance, so you don't really need full amino profile in every 1g you consume, so even plant sources are valid to a certain point.
Also, it's said that some of the famous bbers used to eat about 50g per day (mike mentzer, tom platz), so not being 'optimal' doesn't necessarily mean you will make significantly less gains.
