The one thing that I don’t “get” is why people argue over what type of protein to take. To me, it’s as clear of an answer as who the greatest basketball player of all time is.
Not sure if it has to do with marketing (well that’s a lot) or if people want to act hardcore (yea, you have to eat chicken and beef) or if people read one study and go crazy (the people that read one soy study back in like 96).
Here’s why whey protein is superior to soy/rice or whole foods.
- Obviously this doesn’t take your allergies into account
- I do like whole foods when dieting to stay full for longer
Whey stimulates protein synthesis to a greater degree than soy or whole foods, due to its leucine content and the fact that whey protein is already broken down. It’s easier to absorb. People scream that our bodies can’t use powder but they have no FACTS based around that. Whey is already partially broken down.
Study after study has found that whey is the superior protein. Check out this post about how shakes burn more fat than whole foods.
Your body can’t use soy protein, you’re wasting your money and it will have harder time breaking down whole food, which is lower in leucine.
Whey is king and I only use the the top selling whey protein (for the 5th year) in a row. Optimum Nutrition 100% whey, which includes 5.5 grams of muscle building branch chain amino acids.
