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's pro complex PM protein...which was nasty because it thickened up so much. muscle milk 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.
