Default Proteine mix question

Hello everyone, question about protein powder!

I currently use:
Grass-Fed Whey protein mix with Egg white (no chemicals) protein powder
With Protease enzyme


➡That give me a fast digesting protein and a mid-slow digesting one


*Whey get digest right away after workout. White egg 1-2hour after consuming.

➡I was just wondering... Shall I add Casein to my current mix... To have a 3time releasing protein source after my workout... Or is it really non sense


What do you think would be best MAB

Only Whey protein post-workout 100%
Whey+egg white post-workout 90\10%
Whey+egg+casein post workout 50\20\30%
↪This mix will give me 3time releasing protein in my system. Whey(fast 15-30min) egg white(mid fast\slow 1-2hour) Casein(slow 6-8hour)

Thanks for any advice

Dont think it matters at all. A litre of cheap coco milk will probably do just as good for your results as a expensive protein powder from what I know!

Its more for the macronutriment. Because I seems to never be able to get all the protein i'm supposed to eat (160g). However I think you are right, I dont think its something important. Its just an easy way to get plenty of protein ! :O

I've found myself, and a lot of people getting into too much trouble choosing the right protein. Can be a pain in the ass !

Google Dr. Jeff Volek. He has done some research on your question. My take? Blend is better long term but if money is tight, any protein is better than no protein.

Wow. I know where you're coming from. I'm using a custom protein/carb mix from true protein, and it took me over an hour to figure out what proportions to use.

But does it really matter? naw. Lift heavy, eat for your goals.

No problem. Personally, I like a blend, you just have to keep in mind some of the characteristics of the various proteins.

Hydrolycized Whey tends to be bitter.

Casein tends to be gritty and hard to mix, make sure the casein is instantized if possible, just mixes better.

I try to stay away from concentrate unless I am in a farting mood as it is higher in lactose.

Before they started playing with their formula, Gaspari Myofusion was a good mix. AtLarge Nutrition's Nitrean is a good blend as well as Trunutrition Science's Trutein. I enjoyed True Protein's Team Skip when I tried it. Fusion 7 is not bad, taste wise. I have not tried Universals Proton yet, on my wish list for the future.

The largest problem with blends is price. I have fallen back to purchasing my Casein and Isolate separate because it is cheaper. Since I don't use as much Casein, I by a smaller jug of it, usually buying what I can find on sale. Also, post workout I typically use 1-2 cups of chocolate milk and a scoop of whey. Creates a blend that also gives you some carbs, and it makes me Happy, Happy, Happy.

Really laugh at this one ahah. Indeed chocolat milk is soooo good.

I use a 80% Grass-fed + 20% egg white(for the ecolo in me) and it get digest easily in my stomach. Never use cheap stuff. Like you said I always stay away from concentrate.

And like you also said. I've saw the truteine (mix of whey, white egg AND CASEIN). Thats one of the main reason I want to try a blend of three release protein :P

-I also have read about Dr.Jeff Volek
http://www.nutritionexpress.com/arti...8203.8071.8115

Really interesting fact. atually their is some test done. It seems thats its a good idea.

Also a really good website with all the source named. So its not bullshit. Next purchase I'm gonna mix the three for sure to test it out.

Probable gonna do :

Whey 45%
Egg White 20%
Casein 35%

Or something like that !

Just wanna add:
''Since whey rapidly increases protein synthesis and casein blocks protein breakdown, a combination of both would be ideal. '' -Dr.Jeff Volek !

I would say a blend but at the end of the day if you can't get 160 grams of protein without using supps then I think you should worry more about restructuring your diet rather than worry about something as minor as this
