    Why wouldn't you take Pro Complex over Whey Gold Standard? Price aside. It seems like all the extras its much better.

    Looking at it quickly the last time I was in the store, the only reason I wouldn't get it over Gold Standard would be price

    more proteins in the complex, obviously. for some reason it gave me gas.

    also, the scoop is bigger so i'm not sure you're getting much more bang for the buck per serving

    you're comparing a protein to a gainer.

    :werd: a serving for the gold standard is 30g, and a serving for the pro complex is 74g.

    you're thinking of pro complex gainer.. the regular pro complex is a protein.

    Whats the actual difference between a gainer and a protein?

    I take protein to 'gain'? Yes?

    gainers usually have maltodextrin and whey.

    A serving of pro complex is 72 ans Whey is 30. But dont you guys usually take 2 scoops of whey when you take it?

    And yes there is a Pro Complex and a Pro Complex Gainer edition.

    I take both. I use Pro Complex after my workouts. I like it because it has all the BCAAs in it already, I use the Gold Standard Whey in the evening.

    IIRC, the chocholate GNC pro complex tasted decent, and ON 100% whey gold standard chocolate is kinda :dunno:
