Isopure Whey. It specializes in sensitive GI tracts (chiefly, lactose intolerance). It's whey protein isolate.

Rice protein, egg albumin and casein are all other options if you haven't tried them. Men should avoid soy, they interfere with hormonal mechanisms.

I do power lifting to support my bike racing. My husband and I both take soy protein powder, and actually like Whole Food's brand the best. I don't like pea protein. It's gross.

BWS1982: It's kind of a myth that soy is bad for men. The thing is that soy has a compound that is classified as an estrogen. But the compound found in soy is tissue specific. Human men don't have the right tissue for the compounds to interact with. This is a simplification, but just because pollen contains two sperm cells, it doesn't mean it can impregnate a female animal. There are warnings, however, about consuming too much soy, so it should be taken a balanced part of your diet, combined with other protein sources. I use soy, beans, and wheat gluten, and have bulked up pretty successfully. If you have any studies that show that soy is bad for men, I'd be really interested to read them. We've studied this fairly thoroughly and haven't found anything yet, but you may know something I don't know. Or you could just be repeating things you've heard...

Phytoestrogens, yes.

I wouldn't go the myth route with it, personally, but that's from my own exposure/intake of info. There is literature on both sides of the fence purporting or debunking either side. Some studies/abstracts/links are on this site, others were published in either Muscle & Fitness or Men's Health, it's kind of a culmination as to where I get my stance. I limit my soy as much as possible. There is a good bit of evidence that touches a bit further than anecdotal data, it was discussed here a while back too, with some links. If I get time, I'll search some of them out. There's no way I'm ever going to ingest more than I have to. Ensure Plus added it instead of WPC, so I stopped buying them, for example.

One of the earliest pieces of info I found a few years ago, not the first or the last, but one of the most alarming: http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_...poison_protein

I used cytogainer. Never gave me a problem. Also have been drinking those boost+protein drinks too and they seem to agree with me.

My son uses Absorb Plus, it is a whey protein isolate and even though he has issues with other dairy he can tolerate this one,
