      A good heaping tablespoon is about what I use. That of course can be adjusted according to taste and personal preference.

      TravelinAsia I don't know of any famous athletes that use hemp protein although most if not all use some form of protein supplement they are usually reticent to give up the particulars so they can keep their edge. I've been using hemp protein for about 6 months now and yes it absolutely does work. I've had more energy, felt better, and lost 18 pounds. Hemp protein is extremely high in fiber in fact all the carb content is fiber so it is great for people on Atkins or similar low carb diets.
