Some info on "isolates" "Important Points about High-Quality Whey There's no shortage of whey products on the market, but unfortunately most of them will NOT give you the health benefits associated with high-quality whey. First of all you want to use a whey protein concentrate, NOT isolate. All whey protein isolates are devoid of nutritional co-factors including alkalizing minerals, naturally occurring vitamins, and lipids, which are lost in the processing. This renders them deficient and overly acidifying. Unlike whole protein food concentrates, which do not acidify your body due to their alkalinizing minerals, whey protein isolates are over acidifying. I would strongly avoid ALL whey protein isolates just as you would avoid trans fats as they contain putrid proteins that some experts believe to be worse than trans fat. If chronically consumed in large amounts (such as with bodybuilders or athletes) without alkalizing foods, it can acidify your body and over time may lead to metabolic acidosis with consequences that include wasting of muscle and bone tissues, total metabolic shut down, and increased vulnerability to degenerative disease. So if you want to use whey protein, PLEASE do not use an inferior whey isolate. Look for a high-quality concentrate instead. These are the factors you need to look for in order to ensure you're buying a high-quality product:"

Following the primal diet allows the use of supplementation with whey protein if desired. Mark Sisson offers a supplement called "Primal Fuel", a whey isolate protein powder with a balance of good fat, low carbs and fiber. However, the price tag on this supplement is quite high at a $79.00 per month.
In light of this I have come up with a substitute that I think is comparable to the "Primal Fuel.
- Fiber: Spectrum Essentials ... 13.99, 30 servings @ 1 TBLSP TOTAL: $66.97 ______________________ ... just a suggestion, this is how I am supplementing with whey protein. If you have any other suggestions please post them.
