so my grandparents were visiting today and i went upstairs after i got home from the gym to grab a protein drink
they asked me what i was drinking and so i showed it to them
they FLIPPED!!
reading off the nutrition facts they couldnt believe what they were reading
25g fat
apparently theres also alot of sodium in there too (according to them)

i said whatever and walked back downstairs
what the heck happened here
they said it would do my body more harm than good
all it is 100% whey protein from GNC
explanation please?

that is a lot of fat for 100% whey protein...ON gold standard has 1 g, and more protein per serving. not odd for your grandparents to freak out, im sure they watch what they eat...but im not so sure they know about weightlifting supplements.

I assume they don't know much/anything about protein supplements, so I would take what they say with a grain of salt.

I agree, 25 g of fat is a LOT for a 100% whey supplement.

As a side note, sodium is bad for people with pre-existing blood pressure problems. Your grandparents my fall into this category, so they could be reading a lot of labels for sodium content.

I hope that's a typo, because I have the same whey. It only has 2g of fat.
