Any side effects of protein supplements like whey protein? And by the way, are these supplements effective?
When bodybuilding, is it better to take whey protein supplements immediately after workouts or regularly throughout the day?
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
Including essential Amino acids supplement (BCAA) would affect gout? Is Whey Protein supplements & glutamine supplement safe for gout users?
None will effect gou: Gout is related to URIC ACID and PURINES, not amino acids or protein supplements. BUT, since everything you mention is a complete waste of money, why bother to ask? There are meds used to control gout in different ways. Low dose aspirin and thiazide diuretics tend to raise uric acid levels. Alcohol, especially in large amounts, often causes attacks. Low purine diets are slightly effective. ...Read more

No problem: I see no problem with this protein supplement. Your body will process & use the products of your diet & assemble milk for baby based on babies needs, not necessarily what you eat.

Not as good as milk: When milk hurdles as in making cheese and cottage cheese, the curds have most of the nutrition. The whey is the left over liquid.

I am taking 60 grams of whey protein with 5 g of creatine daily while going to gym. Does these supplements have any side effects?

It is lost from muscle and excreted in urine as creatinine. I do not know of any clinical trials that test whether your physical (and mental) capacity is improved. ...Read more

I strongly recommend whey from grass-fed cows

5' 7" sounds normal: Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood illnesses, height is largely based on genetics and parental heights. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well, and being happy, there's not much a person nor his doctor can do to affect height. ...Read more
