The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    whey protein Vs regular protein?

    I was at a GNC store the other day and the guy was telling me what was good and what wasnt. I asked because i am new to this whole thing. He recommended whey protein, he said that the muscles can use it much better than regular protein found in foods that you buy and / cook/eat. Is this true?

    Whey protein is found in food......and muscles need a variety of proteins:

    Whey
    Egg
    Caseinate

    Make sure to eat beef, chicken, eggs, & milk and you will get a full amino acid profile......

    Whey isolate shakes are good for pre/post workout cause it is very fast absorbing and will reach the muscles quickly which is usually desired after an intense workout and even before a workout(so you have amino acids in your bloodstream during your workout).

    its not really as cut and dried as the guy said.. but yes whey has a high bioavailability as compared to other foods... however it is very very quickly absorbed and will cease to supply your body with a usable pool of amino acids after about 2 hours.... whereas milk and animal meat proteins are much more slowly absorbed/digested and can provide amino acids and a positive nitrogen balance many many hours longer (like 4-7) depending on the amount and the type and your body..etc...

    here is the list >

    Protein Source==========BV (biological value, or bioavialability)
    Whey Protein Isolate Blends 100-159
    Whey Concentrate (Lactalbumin) 104
    Whole Egg 100
    Cow's Milk 91
    Egg White (Albumin) 88
    Fish 83
    Beef 80
    Chicken 79
    Casein 77
    Rice 74
    Soy 59
    Wheat 54
    Beans 49
    Peanuts 43
