    Mark's supplements kept me skeptical when I first found the site (and really, still keep me skeptical). My first clue was reading a "dairy is meh" style post, then making my way to his store where he sells...whey protein - dairy.

    If you want to go the protein shake and vitamin route, you're better off checking out Rainbow Light food-based multi's and Sun Warrior Warrior Blend. Both are cheaper and more natural. Although eating real food is your best bang for buck.

    Oh, almost certainly with the real food. I'll admit though, affording protein (that isn't hot dogs...that's kinda like protein right?) can be tough some times. Still an intern and whatnot.

    I think what I am going to do is buy the plain protein powders mentioned above and simply make my own blends (that could be really fun). I will, however, check out the two you mentioned (that Warrior one sounds pretty neat judging by the name).

    Has Mark released an official statement regarding his supplement line? I know he doesn't have to answer to us, but I'd like to see anything he's said.

    I knew the man who ran my local GNC. Big time BMXer and whatnot. He mentioned to me once when I questioned the "snake oil" on the shelves that to stay in business to sell the "real" stuff, you're pretty much stuck pushing the "less real" stuff. If that makes sense. I certainly have experienced that in my other business ventures.

    When Mark first came out with his whey he caught a ton of shit for the pricetag and he ended up dropping the price a bit and saying its only high because hes sourcing the best ingrediants, blah blah. Honestly i think he knows he wont sell all that much and the people that will buy his stuff will basically pay any price so he puts a big pricetag and just lets his true followers pay up.

    Wait... thats a vegan powder isn't it? I don't like that. I mean if your gonna bother supplementing protein it should be whey IMO. There are at least studies backing it for improved immune function and muscle synthesis.

    I have checked out the Warrior Blend; it is Vegan (as are all the products I found on the site). I am skeptical about plant protein as a primary protein source (but I'm skeptical about everything). Pea protein seems to be most of it, and peas are legumes. However, if the protein has been isolated maybe that doesn't matter.

    lol @ those price tags oooh boy. They actually contain the same ingredients as crap you can buy from CVS for much, much cheaper. Supplements are mostly a waste of money anyway, unless you make sure you're getting 100% quality without junky industrial contamination.

    Gelatin >> Whey. Whey is full of inflammatory aminos.

    Was just suggesting that Sun Warrior might be more in line with Primal than Mark's own stuff (as crazy as that seems). At least it doesn't have guar gum and junk... I think *runs to check her bag of plain Sun Warrior*
