So there's a difference then
which means "protein is protein" is not correct and you shouldn't just buy the cheapest, and yes if you can change your protein powder and notice results then your diet isn't good enough. You telling me you should go to Holland & Barrett's and buy a £10 tub of protein loaded with sugar though? Stop trying to assert your masculinity on every gym related thread. You come across as the guy in the gym who watches someone do a squat with 100kg, then goes up, puts 100kg on the barbell plus another 10kg just to show that your manhood is that bit gurthier than the previous squatter. This is why I avoid the gym section on here and post on BB instead, too many guys trying to prove they know more than everyone else.

Congratulations, you have fallen for the typical marketing BS.
The difference between isolate and concentrate is miniscule
. Isolate is slightly 'higher quality' and easier to digest however concentrate is already a high quality protein which is relatively easy to digest. Isolate may be slightly
higher in protein and slightly
lower in fat and lactose but we are talking about a couple of grams here and there. Unless you're lactose intolerant you aren't going to notice the difference.
As for hydrosylate it is hydrolysed to aid digestion and absorption but again whey is already rapidly digested and absorbed.
The only noticeable difference is that isolate and hydrosylate will cost you significantly more than concentrate. Anybody claiming that they get significantly better results with isolate or hydrosylate is either deluded or connected to the supplement companies in some way.
The crux of my post was:
- There is a difference
- You shouldn't just buy the cheapest protein powder
Seriously chill out. I said someone more knowledgable is more than welcome to come through and correct me if I'm wrong, your post just had aggressive undertones typical of an over-eager "look at me" gymgoer.
