Whey vs. Milk

post #1 of 165
Thread Starter 
I have skim milk. I used to buy for about $50 a two-week or so supply or Whey Isolate (New Zealand branded). It's about 31 grams pf protein per scoop.

Can I just drink 3 or so glasses of skim milk instead of whey protien after a work out and get the same effects? I really like the taste of milk - a lot.

Is it something about the isolate protein that I need (that it digests quicker), or is it better that I just stick to real food as I have heard so many times outside of the forums?

the reason whey is formulated that way is to be fast-absorbing, so the protein will hit your system as fast as possible after a workout. milk is just...milk, so no its not the same.

I doesn't matter just drink the milk. Whey absorbs faster but that doesn't mean much. Whey was a by-product of cheese-making and now it's marketed as a health food.

If I drink milk morning, pre-workout, post-workout and at night, I figure I won't need the fast-absorbing feature since I would be absorbing protien throughout the day. I'm no scientist though.

If you like milk then drink it.

For every 8g of protein in milk, you'd consume at least 12g (amount of carbs in a serving of skim milk) of other macronurients.

In the better commercially available protein powder, there's usually under 5g of added carbs/fat for 20g or so of protein in each serving.

So if you're fine with the addtional calories, yeah, I guess.

You'll still want the fast-absorbing stuff to take full advantage of the postworkout window.

this. you are correct.

were you people raised by wolves? with the questions that get asked on SF, it's amazing people can tie their shoes and go to work/school.

Yup. Take protein shake and eat fish after workout.
Last night, I wolfed down about $15 worth of Sashimi.

No, it's fundamental nonsense.

Yawn. I think there is a direct correlation with your lack of results in the gym compared to what you preach.

To simplify it for you, if you do what you say to get what you have in the gym, then we should not do what you say. Comprehende?

milk has proven better post-workout than pure whey in several studies. and milk is 20% whey/80% case-in, so there's still some whey in it. the slower protein (case-in) is just more effective
