    When should I take WHEY and when should I take CASEIN?

    At the moment I include WHEY protein powder in my Breakfast, PWO Shake and PWO2 Meal.

    I've just bought some CASEIN protein powder to take before I go to bed, as advised by other AR users.

    Should I replace the WHEY with CASEIN in any of the other meals where I use protein powder?

    Also, when should I include FLAXSEED OIL in my diet, and what should I take it with?

    So the only meal I should use the Whey in is my 1st P.W.O. Meal (Shake), and I should use the Casein in my 2nd P.W.O. Meal, is that correct???

    I don't take a Pre-Workout Shake but I do have a Tuna S/wich about 1 hour before training, is this ok?

    The sandwhich is fine. Use the whey in your PWO shake, than for your 2 PWO meals use real food, say chicken and rice, than use the casien again for a shake before bed.

    The only problem is, I don't think I will have time to prepare any meat to have for my breakfast or for my PWO 2 Meal. I usually just have some Oatmeal with some Whey mixed in. If I replace the Whey with Casein Powder will this be an adequate alternative?

    I know I should get more protein from 'real foods' but I just don't have the time to be cooking chicken, beef, turkey, etc. I do however eat a lot of tuna fish while I'm at work.
