    I've never been the person to drink protein shakes/supplements, but I recently started using Muscle Milk (I'm actually on my 2nd container now) and my friends have mentioned that my muscles are bigger, plus I've been noticing it a bit myself when I look in the mirror.

    I'm a very defined person mainly because my workouts (exactly, in order) are: swimming (30 min), running (45 min), and rowing (1 hour), every day at the gym. I only take 2 full scoops a day as soon as I get back to my apartment.

    I'm not looking to "get big" of any sort... I like how I look now, but a bit of some more definition wouldn't hurt.

    I've read about creatine and not necessarily interested about it.
    How is this whey isolate? I'm thinking that since some people buy it in bulk, I can pick it up at Sam's Club for a cheap price.
    Would I be losing a lot if I switch over from MM to whey isolate?

    Any information is appreciated, thanks!

    Check the nutrition info on your muscle milk and then compare that to leanbody or myoplex. you want to try one of those. obviously, muscle milk is better than eating at mcdonald's, but it's not the best if staying lean is your plan. i'm not claiming it will make you fat, but there are better choices. muscle milk does taste great, but the others are good, too

    I think Muscle milk is one of the few that is lactose free.

    I can't belive the amount of saturated fat in some Muscle Milk formulations. Fortunately, they have lighter formulations that have about the same amount of protein and taste good w/o all the sat. fat.
