    That the title says:

    XF Ultra Peptide 2.0 or iForce Protein.

    Other than that, how many carbs (if I wanna keep them under my direct control) , protein sources (Whey , Blend, egg whites or beef) , that it has no needless extras las creatine or DAA or stuff like that...That it is cheap (or cheaper) and it tastes good.

    Other than that...if I am gonna go for Price per pound I'll take steak, salmon, lobster, shrimp and venison over powders ANY day of the week/year.

    Could never argue with you with those two selections. Arguably the two best tasting proteins on the market (still haven't tried Protizyme).

    There are certain benefits from different kinds of protein and recently have been taking in blends of protein if im not prepping for a show. If im prepping i like to use isolates because the the macros are awesome and usually get a good amount of protein per scoop. I will first look at the type of protein, grams of fat, carbs, calories. Grams of protein isnt a huge deal to me like the other things i have stated. Has to mix well, and taste good of course.
