    Real Protein VS powdered.

    My body seems to respond much better to real Protein when i'm on a cycle, but i've personally never really had any confidence in the answers i get about protein powder. everybody says that real protein is best, but some argue that protein powder is real Vs not real. the answer is that both should be used in conjunction, but what is the real value of larger scales supplementation with expensive protein powder?

    The body handles powder differently than the real stuff, assimilating it faster i assume. i've never seen any scales, or percentages to show this. i'd assume that real protein lasts longer/ provides the body with an even distribution of aminos for a time period. if powder mostly assimilates faster than real stuff can it be consumed more often? if no, why not. just curious with that digression. my best results BTW were when i ate nearly all real stuff and had about only 2 - 3 shakes a day. i almost felt as if they did nothing. real protein revitalized me, while the powder was just blah.

    keeping the powders faster assimilation time in mind, is there a viable larger scales supplementation regime with powder that will work for a guy that responds best to real stuff? probably not, but i still have the burning question. what's the actual value of powder?

    Digestion and fat content ..protein powders are so quickly digested that they can spike insulin and don't offer the slow digesting amino acids your body needs..

    As far as the value of powder
    It comes in handy in a pinch for protein needs and it works well for intra and post workout to give the body a quick rush of amino'..

    in a nut shell, casein protein is slower digested, takes longer to break up.

    whey protein is more quickly digested

    hope those simple terms help out.

    You can mix casein and whey that will slow digestion down some. Or you can take your whey protein with a complex carb/fiber source which will also slow digestion.

    Simple answer and food is always better choice.

    I do have powders twice per day though. One postworkout with vitargo powder (fast carbs) and 1 with Greek yoghurt before bed.

    I sometimes have a scoop of their isn't enough protein to one of my meals but rarely.


    Real protein I have is chicken/steaks/eggs
