Them's fighting words 'round here, boy.
But seriously the idea of thinking that a highly processed powder derived from cow's milk is as good or better than 'real' food does seem to warrant a discussion.
I'm no authority but a couple of things.
The normal way the body takes in protein is through the mouth. Thats about it. If you eat it the body will figure out the rest.
Second, with a proper healthy diet whey protein powder seems to agree with me very well!
I think it agrees with 100% of the people on this board.
Its a supplement only - not a food source.
If you have the time and desire you could take a little portable barbeque and have cook yourself a nice steak straight after your workouts! Or I suppose you could drink some milk but where would the fun be in that?
