Isopure Black Tea?????

so i go to a globo-gym and i havnt taken any protein supplements in at least 5 months and it really hasnt made a difference since i had my diet intact. But as i was leaving tonight i asked if i can get a shake made, he asked me are you looking to lose weight or get big. Dont know why i coundnt give him a straight anwser(but i am trying to lose fat and get stronger). So he recommended a Isopure, i ended up getting the Black Tea. I was just wondering what you guys think, i just dont want to be getting scammed, i eat a paleo diet too.
Here's a link

Looks like a decent product, but you sure paid a lot for 480g of whey protein... For example, my Nitrean+ jug contains 1,610g of a better protein blend and only costs $60.95 at full retail...

It's always going to be more expensive when you're paying for pre-made, individually glass bottled protein drinks.

If you bought a jug of Isopure protein powder it would be considerably cheaper. I have no idea if it would be cheaper than Chris' product or how it compares quality wise. Just saying make sure you compare apples to apples.

Well, I don't think it is a scam per se. As the other fellow mentioned, pre-made shakes are always more expensive.
