    Syntrax Nectar all the way baby.. not sure what kind of filtration their "Promina Whey Isloate" goes through but their nutritional profile and taste is second to none. Its like cool-ade and mixes completely clear.

    Yeah, i just got 2 tubs of their twisted cherry last unrep.. I ordered 3 of their caesin too, and are exicted to try them.

    As far as contest prep, i have done a couple shows and have always been told to lay off the shakes. As far as personal experience, i tend to notice a little water retention from caesin, not so much isolates.. i guess it could depend on the brand/additives as well.

    a gram of protein from chicken yields 4 calories. a gram of protein from a shake yields 4 calories. Both break down into polypeptide chains of amino acids.

    True, but there will always be the debate. You have the GURUS who say no to shakes, and have a self proclaimed IMO trained expert eye that says My client looks better because I fed him this diet etc. and you have those who can get away with shakes in their diet. I believe Genetics, and diet, and training regimen and rest etc have more to do with it than anything. I will try 4-5 whole food meals this time and one shake for post workout, and see how that goes for next years show. Otherwise the debate goes on....

    He has a Ph.D (I believe it was either in protein metabolism or syntheses) AND is a natural pro. Whether he qualified last year or not is nominal. He has a wealth of education that he has personally backed up by practice in real life. It takes several years to build up to being where he's at in both educational accomplishments AND bodybuilding. Who else has done both and done them better?

    I may consider layne for my prep, but I would rather have someone who is there in person. I have no idea where he lives. He is the voice of natty bbing.
    I give many props to layne and his trusted educated opinion.

    Agreed! But apparently having a doctorate and being a Pro still isn't "good enough"
    He has great advice for contest prep but like you, I'd rather have a more subjective view from someone who can actually see me in more then just pictures and adjust as needed.

    as you know Contest prep is a stressful time, and having someone there to contact is so crucial. I have someone I call, but now I will be in Texas and he will be in Cali. I would like to see someone weekly or so who can really break it down to me, and adjust as needed. It would also be nice to have the motivator on down days lol.
