A 18-year-old male asked:
Is optimum nutrition's gold standard whey protein free of side effects for a weight lifter?

Whey protein: Whey protein is good for you but please do not rely on it as a way of replacing a good diet. The shakes can supplement the other protein, fat, and carbs you eat. Please check out the product to see if the whey comes from grass fed/free range cattle or penned up cattle w/antibiotics. Avoid the latter. Peace and good health. I am not familiar w/the particular brand you mention.
