In brief: 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.
