I understand ON has probably the biggest fanbase (I think MP is just getting popular now, especially with all these MMA endorsers and stuff) over the years, but damn, I took that stuff for half a year and looking back, it was horrible.
I stopped taking whey altogether around two years ago (and oddly enough, replacing my protein shakes and eating IF style made me bigger), but Dymatize was the best-tasting out of ALL of them (ON GS and the natural included). Sat well with my stomach best too. Don't know why there's hate on Hateraid for it, but yeah, he was the one who encouraged me to try (duh, since he works there), but after trying the stuff, I'm convinced of it's awesomeness.
I appreciate it.
PM me your addy and I will send you a Dymatize sample package courtesy of my company to show my appreciation. I hope that nothing I've ever said steered you wrong.
In fact anyone who wants to try I will send a package to.
Can we all agree that Muscletech products are way overpriced
The vast majority of my protein sources from whole food sources (egg whites, chicken, steak). Bodybuilding 101. That gets tiring, so a couple of scoops of whey protein (54 grams) mixed with water makes for a nice quick alternative. I'm sure there are better brands out there than the one I use, but I don't consider it all-important in overall my diet.
As for waking up in the middle of the night for some protein, hell no! Getting a full sleep cycle in is far more important IMO.
They charge high because they invest sooo much into advertising. The payoff is that the advertising works to draw a certain market. Iovate has that model down pat and exploits that internationally.
