That's because your body absorbs it quickly, but you don't necessarily need it.

Definitely NOT needed. Most people are just too lazy to cook a nice steak. Or they think protein in a can works better (okay, I realize scientifically whey might have a higher BV than natural foods, but I doubt anyone can actually show real life results between people who only use whey and people who don't).

That is all.

Celes you think soy tastes right then?

Actually, there are some advantages to using whey protein. The most obvious one is using it post-workout with creatine and some insulin-spike inducing juice (i.e. grape juice). The protein in liquid form at this time will be more quickly and effectively delivered to your muscles. Its been showed time and time again that soy protein is not as effective as whey protein. But, if your complaint is only taste, I suggest you check out some other companies (i.e. AST-SS, Designer Whey, etc.) because there are definitely good tasting whey proteins out there.

soy sucks, drink a quart of milk after u workout if u dont like whey or get some egg protein shakes. make ur own shakes with milk powder. get creative. or dont even make urself a shake afterwards. eat a bunch of bananas and have a steak like the oldtimers did.:)
