    I enjoy reading the opinions about various protein sources, but I never seem to read anything about GNC products here -- the stalwart (pun intended) retailer for same.

    I know it's a bit pricey (Gold Card for that), but other than that, what are RJ'ers opinions about GNC proteins?

    I use a single scoop of the Wheybolic Extreme, which gives me 20 grams/serving, which I try to do 2X/day.

    I also enjoy their regular Whey Protein, which is about 20 grams per scoop too.

    Educate me!

    Yes, another vote for bodybuilding.com (double chocolate 100% optimum whey, yummmm)

    I've had GNC Whey, but didn't like it. Gave me the same effects that I get with Myoplex. . . just goes right through lol.

    I am bias as I am a GNC franchise operator. The GNC AMP products are a quality product line and the Wheybolic 60 is the best protein we sell. I am not bias to only GNC products as I have used Optimum, SEI, Gaspari, and many others but when it comes to proteins the Wheybolic beats all others. And yea, love hearing all the jabs about our prices.

    Blunt: FUCK GNC! That place is beyond overpriced...

    Any-who... Optimum Nutrition is one of the most highly recommended protein powers out there- and it's not overpriced... at none GNC stores. icon_wink.gif
    Try whatever works best for you and if one offers less protein per serving than just increase the quantity consumed- er- serving size.
