I’d say the Grow! too. I respect what Get Lifted just said, but consider:
This guy’s a busy college lad, on a tight budget. I’m not sure that buying all those whole/real meats would be cheaper than Grow!, protein gram per gram. Also, there is the time element of preparation of those meats vs. mix and gulp shakes.
And so, I recommend the Grow! or Low-Carb Grow! with a high GI drink. Maybe even order some dextrose. Dextrose is cheap and very high GI.
I got an idea. Since I am a college student too, I can understand some of the issues. Let’s find out exactly what issues he has.
Do you live in the dorms?
If you do, do you have a fridge and countertop grill?
Do you have a dining pass?
Can you buy lean meat to put in your fridge?
After those questions are answered we are likely to better assist him…
I say both are necessary. I can recall several times where I was pushed for time and needed a protein supplement.
Did you know Viz that you can get your dining hall to pay for your protein? LOL… its true. The school pays for my Low-Carb Grow! every month. I had trouble eating their food and asked them if they could accomodate me. They did after some pushing on the issue. So, if you are PAYING for their dining hall services to begin with… Tell them their protein sources are fatty and ask them to assist you.
Let us know a little bit more. Perhaps you can do both, not just one or the other…
