    Whey protein- concentrate or isolate?

    What is your guys' opinions? Is one better than the other?

    Isolate tends to be pure whey without any added fat/carbs/ect...so pwo would be a good time to consume Isolate with dextrose. You want to keep the fat down to a bare minimumn (if any) at pwo. Taking in fat with dextrose will promote fat storage as you are taking in fat while spiking your insulin level. Keep it clean utilizing only pure whey isolate/detrose at a 2 to 1 ratio pwo.

    Concentrate tends to have added fat/carbs/etc...so during the day, pre-workout, would ge a good time to consume concentrate or even as a last meal before bed. If you are cutting I would try to find some concentrate that is relativley low in carbs.

    Depends on your goals and since you are not "Hardcore" into bb'ing then no, it won't make a difference.

    I use a blend, no problems here. The Blend from All They Whey only has 1g of fat, so it ain't bad.

    Nope.

    1g won't make an impact at all. He just wants to be careful if you get up to 5 and above.

    BTW...I just got my bannana isolate from them and its the best ive tasted yet!

    I was going to get the chocolate. Haven't tried any of their protein out yet though. I think I'll go with isolate pwo and concentrate throughout the day like recommended mainly because concentrate is so much cheaper.
