And yet it has 0 calories? 10 grams of protein but zero grams of fat, zero carbs, and... zero calories? That is physically impossible and doesn't even make sense. The label is a flat-out fabrication. Even if it were true, it's still only 40 calories. That's about as much energy as you use in, oh, 5 minutes of tennis.

You are attributing qualities to these products that don't make any sense.
I often wondered that myself. The label is probably wrong, but it does seem to work. I'm taking 2 scoops BTW.
