Please help, how much protein powder should I have and what's the best brand?

Depends on goals: Depending of what your work out goals are, you should ingest anywhere from 0.5-1.2 grams of protein per 2.2 pounds of your target body weight per day. So for a 180 pound male, using 0.8 as your protein ratio, you should ingest about 72 grams of protein a day. The best brand minimizes the amount of carbohydrate filler and is a whey protein isolate, not a concentrate. Shop around. ...Read more

I go gym and i need to take my protein shake, but the doctor gave me oxytetracycline for minor acne, is it safe to take the protein shake? Contains zinc

Sure: Be sure you use topical benzoyl peroxide, retinoic acid or salicylic acid while you're on the tetracycline for the acne. I can't advise zinc as a routine supplement if you're not a vegetarian who needs complicated supplementation. Cheap protein power you buy on your own may be a better choice. ...Read more

Egg white is good but why not double chicken breast sandwich since you seem to be trying to avoid cholesterol. Fish ok.On the egg white carton, you will find the amount of protein per serving and you can easily calculate your needs based on your weight.
