I know there's the whole deal with the anabolic window, that suggests that because whey doesn't have to be digested, it goes straight to your muscles to repair them more efficiently as opposed to food that takes longer.
Sounds like BS to me but I just thought I'd make sure before I make the decision.
Ditch it or buy a new tub?
At your current level a pint of milk and some buns or cookies will do you more good than supplements post workout. I often drink a litre of chocomilk instead of supplements post training and It works as good as anything you buy at GNC =)
