62% pure protein content. About 60g of pure protein per dollar. Seems like a good deal

I've used this before. It's not bad - somewhere in the average range.

Shouldn't you get these things separately? Creatine dosing has loading and maintenance phases

I wish protein manufacturers would stop putting token amounts of creatine in there. It just ruins the texture and anyone seriously using creatine is going to measure their own. Weird gimmick.

It's a gimmick that sells. Casual eats the protein, get a nice water pump, says "damn, maybe this protein really is the truth, my last protein didn't do that".

And buys it again

What's a "water pump" in this context? I don't know anything about working out and got way out of shape over the holidays. Will this help if I go back to lifting dumbells occasionally or is it just a waste of time & money?

It in fact, does not. There's no actual third party testing that agrees to this.

It's just supplement manufacturers doing what they do best: sell supplements. Whatever they can do to get you to take more of their stuff, they'll do it.

For context ON gold standard is 79% protein (24g protein/30.2g serving) compared to this 32g/52g= 62%... it's loaded with fillers and considering all the ON deals lately I wouldn't touch this stuff. And I actually lift

The current ON gold deal is 42g of pure protein per dollar. Not a negligible difference

The "pump" is referring to that feeling you get when you lift and your muscles burn and expand. Creatine is supposed to help get more water into the muscles, but I wouldn't know if it worked that fast. For you, don't bother with this or any other supplements. If you think they'll motivate you, then by all means grab a few here and there, but the number one thing you can do right now is get your diet in check. It's not fun, but it will help you out the most right now. You can take all the protein shakes and lift as much as you want, but if your diet is still garbage you'll look like, well, garbage. Focus on your diet, hit 1-2 10 minute walks a day, and try to find a good program (lifting regimen) that works for you, not for the gym bro's who will be here soon to tell you what to do.

Not an expert, but came across this article recently: https://www.popsci.com/supplement...ld-muscle/

Cliff Notes: Protein and Creatine are the only supplements that are widely proven to work for most people.
