    Also check out www.trueprotein.com.

    Shipping can suck if you live east coast like me, but it's not that bad. If you check the forums people who have free protein sell to others cheaply.

    28 scoops @ 26 grams of protein per scoop. Target also sells it. I use the vanilla mixed in smoothies and to bake protein bars with, and the chocolate is ok if you dump a teaspoon of instant coffee and some ice in it for a poor mans iced cafe mocha. That would be about 56 grams of protein per dollar appx.

    For comparison there is about 128 gr of protein in a gallon of milk and a jug of milk here is over 3 US dollars, chicken breast is about 2 to 3 dollars a pound for the skinned and deboned and contains about 112 grams of protein

    by the way Sent, that's a great avatar. Ben Yahtzee Crowshaw is hilarious (at least to a video game geek like me)

    Whey concentrate is still BY FAR the cheapest food per gram of protein.

    For example, the unflavoured whey concentrate that I buy contains 111 grams of protein per £ spent.

    Whey isolate contains 55 g protein per £.

    Canned tuna contains 53 g protein per £.

    Half fat cheese (mild) contains 47 g protein per £.

    Lean ground steak (from supermarket) contains 37 g per £.

    Is that political? Or is the stuff bad? I just bought a 5lb. jug yesterday for $34. Is it junk?

    I still find whey way cheaper than chicken! I've had some luck at smaller health food stores, there's one a block away from where I work and they constantly have reduced prices on certain brands. I spent the other day $15 cdn on a 902g sized one, reg 42. It expires in 3 months...but I'm finished it much faster. I've been doing this for a year now and I've only had one tub that I didn't really like, also an interesting way to try out new brands.

    It pays to look around. I've saved a whack of coin this year doing it this way.
