    Casein ????

    casein is a slow-digesting protein, everybody know that ,its assimilation last +- 8 hours



    but does it means that i dont need to eat every 2 hours 40 gr of caséine or it means that when i eat 40 gr caséine, every 2 hours, i need to eat another kind of protein


    my diet is the following



    12h : 40 gr tuna

    2.30pm : 40 gr prot slow digesting

    4.00pm : 40 gr tuna



    so with casein protein, my diet can be the following ???


    12h: 40 gr casein




    8pm: 40 gr casein




    when i think it, i tell myself that no it doesnt oust my "every two hours intake 40 gr tuna or slow digesting protein, because it s only the digesting that is slowed down



    can somebody give me an example of using casein in his diet .



    thanks

    before bed or a mixture with other proteins is how I take it. Amino acids are used to make glucose by the liver when someone is in a fasting state such as at night during sleep. Though the amount of aminos used to create glucose is fairly low taking in protein before bed makes it less of a possiblity for the amino acids to be stripped from the muscles.

    Sure there is, immediately after lifting (within 30 minutes), unless you can eat immediately after lifting

    yes but or else, take every 2 hours, whey protein is waster if you dont train


    for example : if you train at 8 pm, you wont take a 2 pm, 4 pm whey because it s waste

    I only take whey once a day (workout days) and that is for post workout. Food is your best bet.
