my roomate has a container of GNC MEGAWHEY that he doesnt use. how good is this brand of protein? i read the label and i noticed the 27% daily cholesterol that it gives with 3 scoops of it are all whey protein brands pretty much the same? do some have lower cholesterol numbers than others? i did some searching and noticed a lot of mentions for MUSCLE MILK, ON, cytogainer. are they pretty much the same or is it generally better as the prices get higher? how is whey compared to soy, someone has told me that soy is better but i dont see much information about soy protein also this might sound dumb but what are the benefits of using a whey protein shake as a snack im not as much trying to gain muscle as much as i am trying to lose fat, my aim isnt to gain weight, but would i just get fatter if i just take protein without working out? what if im trying to eat less and lose fat, would i also lose muscle along with the fat because i am not taking in as much protein. can whey/soy protein be a kind of meal replacement if this is my goal?
