First off...I am not vegetarian, let alone vegan...I have come to crave meat.
But, I stopped into my local nutrition place the other day and there was a couple there with samples(yay!). It is vegan, organic, blah, blah. And a GREAT saleman. I did actually buy a meal replacement product and pre-workout product...not necessarily because its 'vegan' but because there is no crash or crazy crap in it, and the meal replacement has 100% of all vit/minerals...nice.
Anyways, he had mentioned that plant based protein was 'more' absorbed by us humans than whey. Any truth to this? Because if i'm drinkin 120cals worth of whey to, ahem, excrete most of it, that sucks!
If anyone is quite knowledgable about this and wants the website(don't want to peddle anything here) I can send it to ya. I compared the bcaa's etc of this plant protein vs. my whey and it 'seems' similar...some more bcaa, some less.
thx for stopping by....
