All if used right: I don't know of any whey protein powder that causes "massive weight gain." in general, weight gain comes from excessive starches &/or fats. Pure protein like whey does not cause this. But one will not have muscle gain just by eating whey- only by exercising as well! I strongly advise whey from grass-fed cows not given hormones & antibiotics, even better if processed at a low temperature. ...Read more
Slight foamy urine. Spot urine test-protein 5mg/dl, creatinine 37mg/dl, albumin 2 mg/litre. Is it normal or proteinuria?
Proteinuria: We generally calculate the urine protein to creatinine ratio and as long as the ratio is below 300 mg/g it is considered not significant (yours is only 135mg/g) so your proteinuria is not significant. But the Albumin level you mentioned, is it serum (blood) Albumin level? If yes, it is very low and unlikely! Please verify your Albumin level and it's source (blood or urine). ...Read more

None of the above.: Protein in urine has a multitude of causes and can vary from small amounts to truly large amounts. Treatment of your proteinuria should be directed at the cause of the proteinuria not the proteinuria per se. Protein intake may be modified depending upon your condition but this is not generally required. You should not change your protein intake without discussing with your doc. ...Read more

Healthy diet: Protein supplements won't give you the health benefits you might be expecting (while there's probably little harm to them).

Avoid anything that can sit on a shelf for weeks without spoiling. ...Read more

Consume some during the workout, & the rest @ the end.20-30grms is fine. ...Read more
