Saw this discussion over on BBR. This "Dr." seems to be a little on the looney side. He sure is making a lot of bogus claims just to sell his product.
i am your regular viewer and read and watch your updates daily…..very good information
Hey Will, can you perhaps discuss grass fed whey protein vs. grain fed whey protein, and whether there is a clear benefit to one or the other.
very good info.
Whey protein can use fat stores directly, "sparing proteins etc in the body." So look at this and excuse this comment if it's wrong, but doesn't less fat mean more testosterone? More fat = more estrogen produced in the body? So wouldn't it mean that whey protein indirectly increases testosterone? This is just what I have heard over the years, I have no sources of this data.
Any clarification will be appreciated!
Greg, not sure I totally follow the thinking there, but there's no known connection between whey and testosterone nor would I expect there to be. As much of a fan of whey as I am (and increasing T would be great) that's not an effect one will see from it.
Oh my goodness! an wonderful article dude. Thank you Nevertheless I am experiencing issue with ur rss . Do not know why Unable to subscribe to it. Is there everyone getting identical rss difficulty? Anyone who knows kindly respond. Thnkx
What a riot! I said to myself, “This doctor probably wants to discredit isolate to attract people to concentrate…sure enough! I dont think that you’ll find as many scams and misconceptions as you will with anything compared to the supplement marketing industry! Thank God for people like yourself who are taking the time to educate people on the facts and these “misconceptions” for what they really are, keep up the great work!
