Ok, first of all I wasn't paying attention and ran out of protein. So in a pinch I had to run to GNC to get enough to get me through until I place another order. So I walk in GNC and this skinny kid, about 6'2" 170 pounds basically jumps all over me asking me what I'm looking for. I told him that I normally use optimum 100% whey and immediately hes trying to sell me the GNC brand $60 alternative. Claiming that their GNC brand is made by optimum anyway, and that it has, "all these aminos" already it in.
here a link
he claims that on avg. i can only actually absorb 30% of regular whey protein and that the kind I use takes almost 2 hours to absorb, and so on. I finally blew him off and grabbed the 100% whey like I always use and checked out. Then he told me at least get the hydro whey, which was right under 2lbs. for the same $60 price tag.
My question is this. I just finished reading an article on whey protein, can't find it now of course, that said whey is whey. Hydro, isolate, etc doesn't make it any more efficient and that all this stuff is basically marketing propaganda from supp companys to make there product sound like the latest and greatest. How do you guys feel about this??
btw, I ended up with the 100% whey 2lb for right under $30.
