The video below goes very deep into the lore of whey protein, including the way it is perceived as a nutraceutical which should be "taken" instead of consumed. The case is made that whey is a food and not a medicine, and should and can be treated as such.

Myths about the danger of whey and many other details are discussed, including warnings about consuming too many "liquid calories," the anabolic window of opportunity, and nutrient timing in general. Of special interest may be the discussion concerning strength trainees with poor appetites. How does whey fit in with this problem?
