Does anyome use casein protein?

  1. Does anyome use casein protein?


    Just curious if people still use it and have had any problems with it ?


  2. No problems besides the price...just drink a big glass of milk (20% whey, 80% casein)

    As the guy above said, milk is good, or you could find some cheap fat free cottage cheese. 60g casein for $1 if u find it on sale at the supermarkef

  4. Not anymore, now i just add whole milk + 1/2 cup cottage cheese to all my blended shakes.

  5. I used to but because of the price, I go with cottage cheese or greek yogurt

  6. I never have, it's too pricey...I eat a lot of chobani greek yogurt though, is there as much casein as cottage cheese?

  7. I use it to make protein pudding with liquid egg whites, but not as a day-to-day protein.

  8. I just kill a giant glass of milk before bed and I'm good.

    Remember why you started.

  9. I guess I'm the only one who uses it lol

  10. Don't use the powder, but I used to eat low fat cottage cheese. These past 3 years, I've switched over to plain fat free greek yogurt Chobani/***e. Much lower in sodium and zero fat. I opt for real food whenever possible.

  11. I agree.

    Most people will go with milk/cottage cheese/greek yogurt as an option because of its availability and price compared to powder.
    If you DO go the powder route, you can do lots of cool stuff with it. I used to get free 8lbs of Casein from TrueNutrition (then TP) all the time and would throw 2 scoops+mixed berries+lots of ice+almond milk into a blender = delicious THICK froyo-like protein ice cream.

    I generally use casein exclusively. I have a voracious appetite, and whey does absolutely nothing for it, I'd rather have each calorie ingested be at least sort of filling.

  13. Dymatize Elite XT NutraTeric protein... $29.00 @ ******* for 5.15lb tub

    That'll last you almost two months if u use one scoop a night, which is what I do on top of eating shortly before bed. And I mix it with milk as well. Great because I can throw in a dose of my bulk cissus with it(which tastes like ass alone) and even sometimes drop in a raw egg

    How much do you use and when. I prefer blends.

  15. Satiety studies show whey is actually more satiating than casein 2 hours post-meal. This is likely due to impaired hormonal feedback from the poor absorption of casein (via hydrophobic domain sequestration and subsequent agglutination).

    So Coop are you suggesting that a whey shake opposed to casein at bedtime would be more beneficial?

    I know the absorption rate of whey is much quicker obviously than casein, hence the use of casein during times that we need an extended period of muscle feeding i.e. during sleep...

    But what would be the benefits of using whey over casein at bedtime?

    Some facts:

    1. The absorption of whey is not that much faster than casein (on the order of 2 extra grams per hour).

    2. Whey has a higher biological value, more beneficial peptide fractions, and a higher bioavailability.

    The timing of protein doesn't really matter, but really the only reason to ever use casein instead of whey is if you prefer the texture (or are baking).

  18. Used to all the time... until I found out there's no NEED for it. I just eat Greek yogurt, drink milk, and eat cottage cheese for my casein.

  19. I always heard that if you want a casein like effect from whey to take it with fish oil that it will slow the digestion of the protein... I don't know if that's true or not... Either way don't spend the damn money on it, man up and drink milk or shovel down cottage cheese

    To get whey to be slower digesting, eat with peanut butter.

    They say essential fatty acids slow the absorption down. I like to put flaxseeds in cottage cheese or yogurt sometimes

  22. This protein is great actually. I like to use it right before I go to bed it really gives me a great bedtime snack.
    I think its a great protein its slow digesting and works well with my program that I am following. I say go for
    it it can't hurt to try it. What company are you using for your protein. I'll check to see if I can get you a discount

    hmm you have a recipe rodja? that actually sounds pretty tastey and easy

  24. I prefer some blends with Casein because they tend to mix up nicer (I use sludge, etc vs shakes more often) and while not always, some of the best tasting proteins I buy are blends.

    No need for slow digesting protein right before bed, you aren't going to go catabolic and eat all your muscle in your sleep though.

  25. Besides using it at night before you go to bed, i will also use it as a replacement shake with my healthy fats. Seems to fill me up much better than a regular whey shake.

    1. Add 2.5 cups liquid egg whites to bowl
    2. Add 5 scoops O.N Casein to bowl
    3. Add 2 tbsp cocoa powder
    4. Add in 1tbsp splenda
    5. Blend together, starting on low and slowly move the speed up.
    6. Slowly add in almond/regular milk depending on consistency. You want it to be slightly thinner than normal pudding because it will thicken up in the refrigerator.
    7. Mix on high until it is smooth and all chunks are gone.
    8. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 30min and then eat.
