    Hi guys, i'm 5'8/5'9, weight 67 kilos, with 22% body fat(i think accoring to bmi lol)...

    I train all the time, have a nice workout routine and a good diet, but the diet i have been asked to do consists of 160g of protein and 285g carbs.

    I'm struggling to get 160g especially on work days, i am getting some protein supplements, now keep in mind i'm in Ireland, i picked up the 90% Soya Protein as of the supplements i've come across it had amongst the highest protein concentrates with no creatine which i would like to avoid.

    Should i bin what i picked up and if so what is a better protein supplement? No Creatine...

    1. How did you get your bf% from your BMI?

    2. Why do you want to avoid creatine so much?

    3. You should probably go ahead and post your "workout routine".

    That routine looks like a great way to make little to no actual strength progress. Go over and read the strength and power FAQ's.

    Read the FAQ's here in the D&S, too. I am going to guess that you are nowhere near the level where you need to count every gram of protein and carbs you eat every day. Just eat a lot of meat and veggies.

    Also, what are your goals for this diet?

    soy protein isn't necessarily a good protein. and most protein powders don't contain creatine if it is a true, pure protein powder. go with whey or something like that as your protein powder, but more importantly, take in more whole food proteins.

    Creatine Monohydrate is not at all expensive for what you get out of it. Especially compared to a lot of other supplements. I would say most people can easily afford it.

    it costs around $10 a month for creatine. most people with a computer and internet access should be able to afford that. especially if they are serious about strength training. which from his "routine" he probably isn't, which would explain why he doesn't want to take creatine.

    You're paying that much? If you take 5g every day at $20 for 1000g, that's only about $3 a month.
