    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:

    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.
