Will I be able to gain weight with gold standard whey protein without doing weights?

Yeah, but...: You won't be depositing the calories efficiently, so you'll just probably gain fat. Weight training will give the protein an appropriate place to go in your body - the muscles.

You are kidding?: The warning is for none under 18. That's got yo be hype. There is whey protein in cow's milk. It is a food and cannot be sold in the US if it cannot be taken by anyone. Whey is whey even in Morocco-it is a milk derived food.

Is optimum nutrition's gold standard whey protein free of side effects for a weight lifter?

Is optimum nutrition's gold standard whey protein free of side effects for a weight lifter?

Whey protein: Whey protein is good for you but please do not rely on it as a way of replacing a good diet. The shakes can supplement the other protein, fat, and carbs you eat. Please check out the product to see if the whey comes from grass fed/free range cattle or penned up cattle w/antibiotics. Avoid the latter. Peace and good health. I am not familiar w/the particular brand you mention.

How many scoops of whey protein gold standard in 500ml milk?

How many scoops of whey protein gold standard in 500ml milk?

Not a good question: What are you trying to do. The amount of protein. If I take you literally, the answer would be none. Milk does not come with any protein additives.

Probably need more: Many things can make it hard to gain weight. The main ones are inadequate intake of calories, need for hydrochloric acid & /or digestive enzymes, malabsorption, inflammation of the intestines (possibly from intestinal parasites), celiac disease & other food allergies, vitamin/mineral/amino acid deficiencies & hyperthyroidism. Meds that address the cause should help. See a good doc for evaluation.

Protein powder: The best protein powder to drink while you are trying to lose weight is a zero carb/sugar whey based protein drink or powder. It doesn't have to be any particular brand though. The two brands you mentioned are fine, as are eas, isopure, etc.

Is whey protein safe for type 2 duabetics? And if so how to take it?

Sure: Read the nutrition label and see if there is any added sugar. Most companies will add little sugar to make the protein isolate taste tolerable. Few companies will make whey isolates using stevia extract. Tips: Enjoy the protein within 90 minutes of workout. Try it with skim milk if you dislike the taste with water.
