    Are you suggesting she should base her decision on just that one BV?

    There are many competitive vegan bodybuilders who do not use whey protein. The debate over soy vs whey will probably never end.

    I am a vegetarian but I don't use either because I get enough protein from the food I eat. My protein was 42% (127.6) of my 1202 cals today.
