Taking whey in combination with whole food?

  1. Taking whey in combination with whole food?

    If I was trying to eat 50 grams of protein at each meal and I had for example a can of tuna with 32.5 grams of protein, could I then for the remaining 17.5 take in a scoop of whey? I mean I know that whey is the fastest acting protein, but would the fact that I'm taking in whole food at the same time slow it down? Or should I still be taking in a mixture of whey, egg white, and caseinate protein powders? I usually eat a whole food plus whey meal every 2-3 hours throughout the day (besides before/after training) then at bedtime I drink a scoop of whey and eat a serving or 2 of cottage cheese. I'm just wanting to see if I'm doing good or wasting my time and whey.

  2. I do the same thing occasionaly. I think the food slows the whey absorption a bit.

  3. Probably would slow down just a little.

    I mix whey with meals all the time. Since I'm too lazy to cook breakfast, I often put about 44 grams worth in a bowl of kashi, mixed grain oats and milk for breakfast. Add some flax oil to the top and poof, there is a hearty breakfast..for me at least, lol.

  4. I was just looking at ON's Any Whey which is protein specifically made to be added to foods/drinks. The ingredients are just WPI, WPC, and whey protein hydrolysate, so I guess whey is the best protein to add to food?

  5. I don't see a problem with mixing whey to foods, such as oatmeal, cottage cheese, etc. Or drinking a small shake with a meal. If you are looking for a brand of whey, try the unflavored from All the Whey. Kmac gave it a good rating in a thread in the sponsor section. That's going to be my next purchase.

  6. bump this discussion.

  7. when i'm eating whole food, i try to get all the protein from the food. but sometimes, i just ain't hungry for ****, so the whey protein comes in handy for those times.

  8. Ditto, I try to get enough protein via real food but there's times that I end up relying on whey as sort of a MRP. I view it as "something is better than nothing".. it may not be ideal but it staves off catabolisis a little.

  9. I drink whey shakes all day long when Im trying to bulk. A sip here, a sip there, with meals, etc. It absorbs so fast that I figure streaming it in throughout the day will prove beneficial. I always try do down a good carb source with it - oatmeal, brown rice, grape nuts, etc.

    Seems to be working - I get about 25% of my protien intake from whey and Im making good gains.
