Cool Whey Protein Isnt Evil..is It

Ok yeah Im ready for the onslaught so bring it.......
Why does whey protein get such a bad rap.????

1.As long as Im following Zone why does it matter what protein as long as its lean, and YES whey is lean ( the shake I use has 4 gms fat 21 gms protein and 10 carbs)?
2.Its Time Friendly, Ill admit it Im lazy, I like to just grab a quick shake hit the gym and then go.
3. Its Easy


Im open to all debate, criticism, name calling, etc etc.. But My Name is Mike and I love Whey protein

Re: Whey Protein Isnt Evil..is It

It's "evil" because it's not real food and because it's a byproduct of making cheese. That being said, even Robb Wolf says it's ok for post-WOD shakes. As long as it's not a cornerstone of your nutritional plan and it doesn't have a bunch of added sugar, you'll be ok.

Why does this make it evil?

Re: Whey Protein Isnt Evil..is It

From "Mastering the Zone", p291:

"A liquid meal has a much greater surface area than a solid food. As a result, the digestion and entry rate of macronutrients into the bloodstream cannot be controlled as well, and there is a corresponding decrease in the desired hormonal control".

Re: Whey Protein Isnt Evil..is It

Oh my golly geez...as soon as I stop drinking beers every weekend, stop hanging out with the wrong women, never have a cheat meal, never suck in polluted air, never miss a wod, never miss taking my fish oil, etc etc...I'll worry about using whey protein...which of course is helping me way more then hurting b/c without the ease of a whey shake in the morning I would probably be skipping breakfast a lot. I just think we likely all have a lot bigger problems then whey, like not getting enough protein for one.
