Is the protein supplement industry causing you to consume too much daily protein? And in particular, is the industry encouraging you to get too much from “non-food” sources?
Pay attention to one thing in this documentary: One guy switches to real-food protein sources and gains 1kg (2.2lbs) of muscle in just 6 weeks while at the same time raising his metabolic rate by 100 Calories per day! This happened, in my opinion, because he was now using protein from sources his body can actually use! More on that issue below…
You must understand that the vast majority of those bars, cookies and pancakes are full of inferior forms of protein that aren’t very usable by the body – like soy, collagen, pea, rice protein and so on.
See my reviews on:
- Mars and Snickers protein bars
- Lenny & Larry’s Complete protein cookie (probably the worst protein product on the planet)
When buying such bars, ensure the protein source is from whey, milk, and/or egg protein. Or make your own like my incredible tasting Buff Bars and Buff Cookies from my Buff Baking anabolic cookbook. See pic below…
Some proteins are far superior to others for building muscle. In fact, there are 5 definite BEST sources of protein for building muscle, and if you aren’t getting them, you are not gaining maximum muscle as quickly as possible. That’s a fact!

Thanks! Here's what you wanted. Enjoy...
HOW I GET MY PROTEIN
I get most of my protein from food:
- I take 1 shake per day on non-training days (first thing in the morning)
- On training days, I take 2 shakes. One in the morning and one during/after my THT Training session.
HOW MUCH PROTEIN IS TOO MUCH?
One rather slim guy in this documentary says he was taking 250g per day. That’s ridiculous.
Take 1g per pound of body weight. 180lbs = 180g per day. And yes, that’s sufficient when shredding fat to get a six-pack too.To build muscle take 1g per pound of body weight. 180lbs = 180g per day Click To Tweet
If you take more than you need, the surplus protein gets converted to glucose, so you might as well be eating carbs. If you don’t need the glucose for energy, then that is converted to body fat. If all that surplus was really going towards building muscle, you would have become Arnold a long time ago.
- Eat no more protein than you need.
- Get that protein from real food and use whey secondarily
And get your whey from a trusted company. MyProtein has been independently tested to actually contain the amount of protein (and sometimes even more) than it states on the label . Labdoor testing company even recommends them.
Supreme quality and surprisingly cheap. I’ve been using them for a decade now! If you’re in the USA, take a look here. UK and Europe here. Once you switch to MyProtein, you’ll probably never go back to another brand.
If you’ve any questions, you can ask me below 🙂

Must also remember that if he ditched his whey for real food protein (maybe a steak) it’s going to take longer to digest and therefore make him weigh a little more as whey protein by weight doesn’t weigh that much. 1kg is nothing in my opinion, I could eat 2 x 500g steaks in a day and at the end of the day be 1kg heavier, even downing a 1lt bottle of water can make you weigh 1kg heavier. Appon saying that I’m not quite sure how they worked out how he gained 1kg in a week, did they just weigh him or do the proper measurements?. Sorry, I just haven’t had time to watch the clip.
@Jason. No mate, this was with a bodpod scan. He actually gained 2.2lbs of actual muscle. An unreal result in just a few weeks.
Thanks for sharing the documentary. I’ll have to check it out when I get home from work. After reading your reviews of theArs/Sniclers bars and the Craplete Cookie, I wonder what you think of Power Crunch bars. They are ridiculously delicious and use only whey protein (hydrolyzed and isolate).
Many thanks Mark for posting this doco. After viewing ” What the Health” , ” Prescription Nutrition” and reading “Proteinaholic” by Garth davis I found it all a wakeup call regarding the obsession with protein and supplementation. So much in fact that I have gone onto a strictly plant based nutrition.Personally I have never felt better and stronger and there are many bodybuilding sites that follow the same regimen. The trouble with veges most are sprayed to grow, ripen, and for longevity at the supermarket. And then there are GMo’s. followed by corporate greed.
However I am interested in your thoughts why you think pea/rice protein are not good or usable by the body.
Mark, I had to quit taking whey protein because it was messing up my liver. I had symptoms of dizziness and went to see the doctor and it turns out I had a fatty liver. She thought I was an alcoholic and I had to convince her I didn’t drink. When I mentioned I was taking whey protein she immediately told me to stop and come back in a few weeks for another blood test. Long story short, I stopped taking protein supplements and my liver is back to normal.
@Alexander. lol @ craplete cookie! I’m not familiar with those bars, but if it’s really just whey as the only protein source, then that’s good to go. Quest bars are good, also.
@Roland. Yeah, the bioavailability and completeness of those proteins are inferior to animal proteins unfortunately. See my 2 posts here for more:
@Paul. Wow, never heard of anything like that happening.
You disappoint me in this post. I think you’re sadly ignoring the copious amount of information on plant-based protein and its effectiveness. Like Roland I follow a mainly plant-based diet (with fish) and have only had great results from a 70%-30% combination of Rice and Pea protein. In fact many traditional diets around the world adapted to provide the right amount of protein combinations like rice and beans/legumes.
No protein in our bodies comes “ready-made”, we have to break all food down and build our own protein from that. So just because a cow’s muscle is more similar to mine than a piece of cauliflower doesn’t mean it will neatly slot into my body as ready-usable muscle.
It has long been proven that a protein doesn’t need to be complete. And bio-availability might not be as important as you suggest. I think you could benefit from opening up your scientific reading to include positive reports of non-animal based sources of protein.
@Dawn. I’m not interested in taking sides. I’m only interested in the truth. Plant proteins are inferior to animal proteins for anabolic processes. The bio-availability and completeness (amino acid profile) are the 2 biggest issues. As such, animal proteins far out-class plant proteins for building muscle. Incomplete, lower-availability proteins can’t compete.
