 This raises an interesting question.  As long as your protein, carbs and
 fat (macro nutrients) are in the right proportions, and your micronutrients
 are sufficient (take a multivitamin or two?), and the calories are in line
 with your needs, what difference does it make whether you eat brown rice,
 salad and a steak or have tuna with pita bread and lettuce, or have a PR bar
 and some metamucil?  Yeah glycemic index blah blah.  You eat fat and protein
 with sucrose, the glycemic index is not so important, yes?
 I happen to be a whole-food believer, but I use Met-RX for snacks, and
 Designer Whey all the time to add protein when I don't feel like having
 another slice of ham or hunk of tuna.  Does my body really know the
 difference?  I can already say a qualified "yes", because too much
 Designer whey gives me gas (so do soy-burgers).
 What's the concensus?  Bet there isn't one in this group.
