Hello, Arete! The link you provided is such great information! I believe this explains proteins better than anything I've read or been told. I eat lots of protein everyday. I will read the web page again to get a better understanding. I'll check out the protein drinks. Btw, I'm not trying to gain weight, and do not care to gain weight, so I am wondering if the protein drinks on a regular basis would cause weight gain.
I understand we are posting the benefits or protein drinks on the exercise boards, so if you care to answer this, let's go over to the "Diet & Nutrition" board so your thread about your friend's new exercise program won't get off topic.
I hope your friend is excited about her new routine and that she is feeling good about it.
