    I got an awesome deal on 5 lb MET-RX Long Range Whey Protein (less than $18 incl. shipping) and it tastes 1000 times better than the soy junk I had laying around the house. Just curious what everyone else takes and how they'd rate it--I can keep getting these at this price or cheaper but wanted to see if there is a wholly better product out there that's worth the extra money!

    yah, I read that whey absorbs faster, plus--like I said--the chocolate whey I've been using actually tastes GOOD, not just tolerable.. the soy I was using before tasted like ground up cardboard.

    well aside from the absorbtion, soy protein is not complete; it is lacking in several amino acids (i think). there is also some evidence to suggest that soy's high levels of estrogen-like compounds can cause feminization (bitch tits, etc) if taken at really high levels.

    edit: you even could have said "there's powder in a sealed bottle." it's almost like you really had to try to fuck that one up :fawk:

    couldn't you just get some 20 oz POP bottles and fill those with powder and fill it with water whenever you need it?

    lactose free whey isolate confuses me. that's partially because i don't know shit about the properties of milk though.

    I think it's just broken down to the point where the lactose is filtered out, or something. I dunno, all I know is it doesn't make me fart death or give me the supershits.
