DON’T DRINK THE SAME PROTEIN AS THIS GUY!!!

IT WAS PROBABLY A SOY SHAKE! A recent email from an old friend prompted me to write this, because now that I think about it there are TOO MANY TYPES of Protein Supplements out there. Whey, Casein, Soy, Egg, etc, etc, etc. He basically asked me what Protein I recommended based on his goals and…
