Vitamin Shoppe: So Much Whey!

The Vitamin Shoppe opened last week, full of powders and pills to make your hair grow and your muscles bulge.

So today, The Heights Life went to see what pills we could pop for some self-improvement. The grand opening means everything is also on sale! How could I resist discounted fish oil?

Around and around I went, protein powder here, fasting tea there, raspberry pills all over. Wait... raspberry pills? Why not just eat some raspberries? I think maybe I don't understand the Vitamin Shoppe.

Regardless, here is a little video. Note: Despite our weeks of anticipation, you actually can't find Metabolife on the Shoppe's shelves. Oh well, that stuff is probably really bad for you.

I'm a Registered Dietitian- trust me, you're better off eating raspberries, fish etc and putting any money you would have spent at this place into a Roth IRA.

You'll be much happier when you're old and gray :)

And as for Metabolife - I remember when a certain blender-watching roommate and I used to take it, and then do things like apply for 47 jobs in one day. And not eat for a week. I think it went out of fashion once all the ephedrine problems popped up, since that's what it mainly was, if I remember correctly.

Now they make the ephedra-free version. It's just all caffeine. You could get the same effect from a Vivarin.
