Agree- Whey Protein: I consider whey protein the best source- as it is animal based and gives you the proper Amino Acids you need to build muscle. It also contains the needed leucine- an important Amino Acid to help build muscle and assist your body in burning fat. Start your day with 30 grams for best results! <a href="http://www.Researchbasedweightloss.Com/ ">research based wt loss ctr</a>.
