I love the intelligent discussion and debate on this site. But there seems to be an abundance of citing of Web pages and articles from uncredentialled sources as fact. Why should we take what Jon Barron says to be scientifically valid, or even believeable?

"In a world of specialists, Jon Barron is the true Health Renaissance Man. He has wrapped his mind around every natural therapy known to man and brought it together in a whole body package--delivering a whole body “system” program, a line of nutraceutical products, and cutting-edge functional foods and drinks for consumers to enjoy."

Not exactly unimpeachable credentials.

For proteins I've ordered and recommend:

Also note that allthewhey sells on ebay, generally cheaper than the site. I get 50 pound sacks there.

I don't believe there is much difference in types of whey. The more expensive ones just remove the undigestable part and charge more... Except hydroxilated that digest quicker...

I know some on here are opposed to sugar, but if you need the calories, maltodextin is what nearly all the meal replacements and high calorie drinks use. It has basically no taste. You can get it in 50 pound sacks from Grain Processing Corporation. Call them and ask for a distributer. Cost is under $1 a pound shipped.

A mix of Caseinate and whey is good, as casinate digests slowly and whey faster. Of course you could possible save a little and get it premixed. Irronically Milk protein is a mix of the 2.

Some hydroxilated whey might be worth the $$ for post workout as it digests super fast. However, it has a horrible taste. Mixing some dextrose with it seems to fix the tast issue.
