    Its an interesting pilot study, but obviously too many confounding variables to come up with any real insight.

Basically, you have a group of guys eating a whole lot of food, often poor food choices to put on mass and purposefully consuming oxidized cholesterol several times a day as a protein source.

    But there's whey in yogurt as well right? Is that bad?
    I gave up whey protein months ago and it was a great decision. Now, I just eat yogurt and cottage cheese. They have almost the same nutrient profile as whey protein (pure protein with very little fat or carbs), but it's a whole food with no oxidized cholesterol, and it keeps you full for a long time.

    Yes, there is some. Less in Greek yogurt as more of it has been strained off. But whey powder is liquid whey which has been dehydrated, which will oxidize the cholesterol. From what little I understand, some whey powder is produced more "gently" so it isn't as bad for you. Liquid whey is only a problem if you're intolerant to dairy proteins. Oxidized cholesterol ingestion is bad no matter who you are.
