How to make whey digest slower at night...
I want a slow release of protein for night time to keep catabolism to its absolute minimum. My supplement store charges an arm and a leg for 'slow digesting' protein opposed to straight whey. What can I mix with the whey... so far before I go to bed I've been mixing it completely with milk and a few raw eggs.

The type of protein you find in good old cottage cheese is Casein... Casein is the opposite of whey. It is an insoluble, slow-digesting, milk derived protein. Casein has been shown to be anti-catabolic in several studies but has no effect on increasing protein synthesis. So what is it good for: Casein gels in the stomach and is slow to digest. In fact it takes casein at least 2.5 hours to digest and up to 4 in some cases. For that reason it is good at any meal other than post workout. Casein is an excellent choice especially right before bed since it gives you a slow stream of aminos over about 3-4 hours and prevents muscle breakdown. You need this slow stream of aminos since your body will be going 8 hours without any protein.
