    Heading to GNC...

    What should I get if i just started lifting a few month ago (still pretty weak). I keep hearing about "whey protein" and "meal replacments". What are the advantages to each. Is there anything else I should be looking for?

    What is whey protein? Is it any different than the protein I can get in a can of tuna?

    Whey protein is a pure, natural, high quality protein from cow's milk. It is a rich source of the essential amino acids needed on a daily basis by the body. In its purest form, as whey protein isolate, it contains little to no fat, lactose or cholesterol.

    Just pick up some protein, fish oil, and maybe some flax oil. There are many forms....I would say a whey protein or protein complex....which is a blend of different forms ussually more expensive but filled with alot more glutamine and bcaa's. No need for anything else just yet.

    For now just eat, lift, and rest. You'll do fine with just that.

    Fish oil helps with fat burning
    They both lower chlosterol level and good for everyone!
