Is Casein Worth it?
Hey guys, Im interested in getting some feedback on casein protein and whether or not its worth the money. I know cc is a good source of protein before bed but im just not a fan of that and although i love skim milk i know nutrient wise casein would be a little better but im not sure if its worth the extra money.

I would say its defiantly worth the money but if you don't want to spend the money just try eating a couple spoonfuls of natty peanut.

cottage cheese... IMO the best food source for caseins. it's not expensive and you can mix in honey or syrup for some sweetener.

thanks guys. I have a hard time eating cc although i did notice i did not wake up hungry at all when i was eating it. I think ill try some sugar free syrup or something like that to spice it up and if that doesnt work ill just pick up some casein powder.

if i were u, i would get the casian but because its kinda expensive i would drink it one night eat some cc the next night then do some skim+whey the next. that way, u dont go through like 56lbs of casian and you dont really get sick of any of them. just a thought

I honestly feel that whey has no purpose other than:
1. Waking up in the morning. You need to get protein in you asap due to the lack of protein leaving your body in a current catabolic state.
2. Right after working out. The whey's rapid digestion rate gets the protein in your body asap when it is needed.
I feel that casein is a good protein to use the rest of the time. Why ? If you are like me and heavily rely on shakes instead of whole food the slow protein digestion rate leaves a higher room for error when trying to avoid negative nitrogen balance. If you consume whey between meals then your covered so that's not a problem.
The thing that appeals to me the most is how it works slower. There isn't a insane need for immediate protein that whey offers other than the 2 situations noted above. ^^^^

Whey is good, but it has its purposes. People overkill it and don't use it when they should. An easy/cheap way to make a good blend is buy a ton of Optimum Nutrition casein/whey protein.
Dump 1/2 scoop of whey + 1/2 scoop of casein. Done !
OR 1 scoop whey + 1 scoop of casein.

casein is great. my recovery rate has been much better now that i have been using a casein protein opposed to cottage cheese. leaner, too. i've used optimum'sPM protein...which was nasty because it thickened up so much. is currently my favorite for before bed. despite the fat, i love it...helps with those cravings too.

I'd recommend a similar approach to anyone. But ultimately how you eat is up to your own dietary needs and what's best for your body.
