    what do you mean implying? i posted a review by stak3d where people did exactly what you are talking about. what people are doing warrents my curiousity, and i dont understand why that would inflame anybody[/QUOTE]

    So you are ALSO calling it a micro nutrient then, since you are placing it with vitamins and minerals (as would I).

    So with THAT out of the way, you have stated SEVERAL times that PF3 could POSSIBLY replace your whey protein. Last time I checked, whey protein is a PROTEIN MACRONUTRIENT SOURCE. So if YOU are going to categorize PF3 as a MICRONUTRIENT, PLEASE explain the logic behind you mentioning several times the possibility of PF3 replacing whey protein.

    Again, a MICRONUTRIENT does NOT replace a MACRONUTRIENT. It is quite obvious at this point that you have some sort of distorted view on what whey protein actually is.

    i assume you mean wpi. the fact is, if every gram of protein we ate turned into muscle, we would just keep getting more and more muscle by taking more and more protein. the body has other ways of using the protein we eat besides our intention to build muscle. technically, you could blame the body and not the protein powder

The product is marketed as a Pharma grade protein with emphasis given to the bio-actives.

    We're taking about a supplement here. Why would taking PF3 make some malnourished if they are supplementing their diet with it? That statement doesn't even make sense. I take PF3 daily and can assure you I am doing just fine.
    Your very own rep, The Science, has also just pointed out TODAY that he considers PF3 to be in the same category as vitamins and minerals.

    As for us talking about supplements. Protein supplements does not SUPPLEMENT ones protein macro intake, it actually figures in DIRECTLY into ones protein macro intake. That is how it is used. It's only labeled as a supplement but lets face it, it's essentially powdered food. PF3 as it is marketed and designed for, is NOT a replacement of macronutrients. It is very obvious that it truly IS a supplement one takes IN ADDITION to ones diet. It AUGMENTS ones diet. Protein powder on the other hand, that actually DOES displace protein macro intake from whole foods. Or are you suggesting that if I was to need 170 grams of protein a day, supplementing with whey protein is going to be in addition to the 170 grams of protein I get from whole foods? Obviously not, it's going to displace some of the protein I would have originally taken in from whole foods.

    This is the entire problem, the advertising and The Science consistently IMPLY that people take protein supplements SPECIFICIALLY for the microfractions, thus PF3 is going to be superior. HOWEVER, NOBODY, at least no sensible person I know of, is actually taking protein supplements specifically for the microfractions, they are taking it specifically to help hit their protein macro goals.

  5. People are still talking about PF3?

    i have entertained switching for the sole purpose of keeping/making my gains and keeping my doms away. ive specifically said those are the only reasons i take protein and that i dont care about any others. thats all ive said. i never said people take protein purely for the subfractions and neither did the ad; in fact, ive advocated for its nutritional value. if there is another way for me to get that benefit that people are describing, im interested. the ad itself had to pit the bioactive content of pure pf3 to the bioactive content of protein powder; this wasnt done to trick anybody. if that graphic wasnt put up there, people would think they may have all the bioactives they could benefit from in their protein already, or perhaps theyde thinks its no different from protein. the graphic very excellently portrayed that.

    I meant milk protein isolate, but "insert isolate here" works too. Either way, I think that would depend on the individual's own body as well as how they are using the protein.

    Edit: Milk protein in general for that matter...

    well, i mean, nobody has a body type that will keep building muscle endlessly by eating protein endlessly unless there is some kind of freak genetic mutation. iflex wheeler's body wasnt able to work with myostatin and as a result he was all muscle and still he took all kinds of things to increase protein synthesis. for everyone else, the body thinks it is better to store calories as fat as having muscle consumes calories, and from a survival perspective a muscular person would be worse off if food supply was low. yeah, im sure there are a million ways to reduce the fat. i just eat alot of protein powder and hit the weights without any strategy beyond that

    You literally make me want to smash a keyboard into this monitor. Do you even read these posts? Have your rants resorted to just trolling?

    Protein powders help supplement whole foods. They are obviously added into your daily macronutrient count. Duh. Welcome to 2013. What does that have to do with this thread on PF3?

    How do you not understand the difference between a macro and micronutrient? Seriously, how do you not understand that PF3 is a protein thus being a macronutrient? There is 2.5g of protein per serving translating to 10 calories. Micronutrients are not calories. Do you count zinc and vitamin C towards your calories? No.

    Then I will find a way to harvest the accelerated protein synthesis process that takes place within my body so I can replicate it and then mass produce it and put it in supplements.
    That way people can just drink it and get swole.

    Hilarious that you wish to bring that up right now. I made NO attempt at hiding my identity when I posted with those alt usernames on bb.com as can OBVIOUSLY be seen in the contents of those posts. As for trolling? Go look on my bb.com posts and rep. It's alive, it was a temporary ban, and the whole ban started with ONE person that got REAL nasty with me on PM's which INCLUDED threatening to hack my computer. I still have those PM's in my inbox. So don't even dare attempt to tarnish my reputation with such a childish post.

    Let's face it, NONE of you reps actually knows what PF3 is. I admit I misread The Science's posts in regards to micronutrients but let's face it, who the heck is idiotic enough to consider antibodies a macronutrient? Serious? SO you have The Science which has YET to display any credible science in his posts and flip flops all over the place, then you have the other reps whom really have no clue what PF3 really is intended for and thus mostly stayed mum on the matters, but NOT before claiming that PF3 is completely different from Bio-Gro which since the PF3 release, it is quite obvious that PF3 and Bio-Gro serves the same purpose. The difference? The difference here is that iSatori CLEARLY states that Bio-Gro is NOT a protein replacement and is NOT a macro nutrient. Rightfully so. You guys on the other hand still can't make heads and tails out of your own product. Seriously? Now you post up this screen grab in an attempt to discredit and defame me? Laughable at best.

    Now, NOTHING is more hilarious at this point that claims that PF3 serves as a macronutrient. For it to indeed serve as that, it's going to have to displace food. However, CLEARLY the product is boasting the 75% or more of bio-actives as the selling point. Bio-actives are NOT what is traditionally considered to be protein macros. The are the microfractions that are contained within the long chains of aminos which makes up protein macronutrients in the traditional sense.

Ok, nothing is funnier except for maybe how you posted that screenshot in an attempt to deflect the fact that questions in regards to the marketing of PF3 and how The Science is presenting the product as. I mean, I can understand if you have things of worth to add to the discussion but your post which boils down to "Oh, don't listen to this guy, he's just a troll" is hilariously childish.

    According to your logic then, Slim Fast is a supplement. Powdered milk is a supplement. Protein bars are a supplement. However, let's be realistic here shall we? They are all convenience foods. They all provide significant amounts of macronutrients as they are a good source of calories. End of the day, for something to be a macronutrient, it needs to follow the simple principal of it being a main source of calories. Thus protein powder DISPLACES calories one would get from food AS WELL as DISPLACES the protein macros one would have otherwise gotten from food.

  18. Your increasingly combative attitude in the face of the explanations we're giving speaks clearly enough about your reputation. I really don't know what your complaints or questions are any more to be honest. I do know I won't respond to the statements you made above regarding us reps.

    Maybe we should do a poll somewhere in this thread: do any of you really care about this micro/macro debate being perpetuated by one user? Just curious.

    Again, see what our loggers are experiencing. Much easier to understand than microcellular biology.

    Combative? Lulz, after what you have posted?

    All I originally went out to point out is the inconsistency of the messaging from The Science especially after him implying that PF3 could possibly replace whey protein powder. Protein powder is just food, it's powdered food, what he was implying (though admittedly he did not outright state it as so, but it's OBVIOUS what he was implying) was that PF3 displaces food intake which is clearly ridiculous. There's also the whole notion that he is presenting that people take protein supplements solely for the bio-actives. Bio-active supplementation is pretty new and that category was only really created this year (as far as Europa's products categorizations are concerned). PF3 and Bio-Gro are essentially new supplement category products. Whey protein is clearly a protein macronutrient source, people do not take whey protein for the purpose of getting in more IgG, IgF, lactoferrin, etc. People take whey protein as a convenient protein source, it's displacing that chicken breast you would have otherwise had.

    I could care less about your bb.com happenings. It doesn't make a difference here. I have nothing against you, you and I have had positive interactions thus far.

    As for the argument, it is good that you have an opinion and are willing to fight for it. I have been following these threads and been reading the arguments on both sides. I personally feel that overall this debate has been unproductive for both sides. It would be beneficial for the AM community and MAN Sports for this to cease fire.

    Like I said this is my opinion, and I am sure some people will retort for me having posted this. Let users decide for themselves whether the product is beneficial, or whether it is crap. I am sure that many users will respond to PF3 and like any other supplement some will be non responders.

    I agree with you. I only made my recent critical post after seeing the idea of PF3 replacing whey protein one too many times. Just wanted to make sure the curious out there was clear that whey protein is essentially powdered food so PF3 is not meant to replace actual food. Like I've said many a times, I bought a tub of PF3 when it came out a few weeks back off NP. The product has it's place in ones supplement stack IMO, but it's not interchangeable with protein powder/protein macros intake.

    But it is what it is, and I'm going to stay clear of further comments on PF3, for the sake of my own sanity :P

    IGg is an antibody, and antibodies are globular proteins. immunoglobins are made up of light and heavy polypeptide chains. they can be broken down in the GI tract.

    Now, NOTHING is more hilarious at this point that claims that PF3 serves as a macronutrient. For it to indeed serve as that, it's going to have to displace food
    protein is a macronutrient. because i eat protein powder, it doesnt mean i have to stop eating/"displace" food.


    SO you have The Science which has YET to display any credible science in his posts and flip flops all over the place,
    whoa, hey! why the digs at me bro? i explained how what you percieved as an inconsistantcy isnt one, and you respond by saying im inconsistant all over the place? all i did previously in another thread was correct someone who was misquoting the ad; i said the ad isnt instructing everyone to drop protein and in fact it acknowledged proteins nutritional value. at that time i also stated i did not intend to drop my protein powder. that doesnt make me a hypocrite when, since then, i observe people are dropping protein powder for pf3 and are happy about it 4 weeks in; when i see that, it makes me wonder and now im forming a hypothesis that i may attempt to prove or disprove with my own protein resources. theres nothing inconsistant about that, and i never would have imagined someone would have found anything offensive about that.

    How is your protein powder intake not displacing food? If your protein macros are 200 grams a day, and you take 60 grams from whey, you're not going to eat 200 grams of protein that day in whole foods. This by definition is displacing one food source with a different food source.

    What riled me up this time around is in this thread, a few days ago, you CLEARLY posted the following:

    " i would stand to save some money if dumping protein for pf3 was, in terms of keeping my gains and reducing doms, equivalent (or better in the case with reducing doms) as several other people have said it is after several weeks, but my plan is to check in with these people after several months to see whats going on with it before i try dropping protein powder"

    THAT CLEARLY has you implying that PF3 is a replacement for food. Again, protein powder let that be whey or a blend, is essentially a convenience food source. The fact that on SOME posts you agree that whey protein is essentially powdered food and then in some posts you imply that whey protein is being used mainly for its bioactives, it has you flip flopping all over in this regard. For your notions of PF3 replacing whey, that works IF you are strictly talking about the bioactive content BUT the problem here is that people DO NOT use whey protein for the bioactives, they use it as a significant protein macro source. It's being used as food, not a source of bioactives.

    As for your comment about somebody else misreading the ad-copy. Let's be honest and truthful here, there was no misreading and if there is that's due to the fact that the ad-copy actually WANTS people to misread it to sell the product. THAT is another issue altogether which has been covered ad nauseum.

    Like I've said many a times already, the PF3 product HAS MERIT but the way it's being explained/marketed is confusing and consistently throws around the notion that PF3 replaces protein powder. You called it a fun poke at whey protein but let's be honest, any sane person knows that it's obviously a marketing gimmick. Again, TECHNICALLY if we are STRICTLY talking about bioactives, yeah, PF3 is far superior BUT the problem again is who the friggin heck actually uses protein powder specifically for the bioactive content? People don't, people use it as a protein macros source thus the whole PF3 vs whey comparisons are really invalid in a practical sense since they are essentially two very different types of products.

    But hey, it is what it is, I'mma just leave this alone.

    you just said that a macronutrient "by definition" replaces a food source. i contend that statement because it doesnt have to displace it. if someone choses to drop protein, they are displacing something they used to eat, but that has nothing to do with whether a substance is a micro or macronutrient.
    What riled me up this time around is in this thread, a few days ago, you CLEARLY posted the following:" i would stand to save some money if dumping protein for pf3 was, in terms of keeping my gains and reducing doms, equivalent (or better in the case with reducing doms) as several other people have said it is after several weeks, but my plan is to check in with these people after several months to see whats going on with it before i try dropping protein powder"
    why does that rile you up? people are reporting just that, and they are influencing me. please note the word "IF" in my hypothesis, as i havent attempted that yet and ive been very vocal about my hesistation to do so
    THAT CLEARLY has you implying that PF3 is a replacement for food.
    again, im talking about people who are dropping protein powder for pf3, not food. while white sugar may have calories, i wouldnt call it food, as it has many nutrients stripped out of it, and it took along time for significant portions of the population to realize that the body will use nutrient researves just to process the stripped down crap.im not comparing white sugar to protein powder, but i bring up white sugar to demonstrate these are food extracts and that there should be a distinction between protein powder and protein in actual meals.
    The fact that on SOME posts you agree that whey protein is essentially powdered food and then in some posts you imply that whey protein is being used mainly for its bioactives, it has you flip flopping all over in this regard.
    [/QUOTE]again, i never said people only use proteins only for their bioactives and i never implied it. why are you saying i did? ive consistantly acknowledged protein powders nutritional value. period.
