Changing how I consume my protein



Recommended Posts

I have been told that it also depends on your Protein source. All natural protein - eggs, meat... Your body will absorb everything. If you sit and eat a 40g piece of red meat then your body will absorb everything. However if you take that same amount in a Protein Powder you will only be getting about half that.

Depends on the protein source of your protein powder and how it is processed (high heat will denature, thus reducing the effectiveness of the protein...of course cooking your meat and eggs will do the same thing). A study published in the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine stated that "whey protein isolates are the purest protein source available". The Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score was highest for whey protein, casein, eggs, soy protein and milk. Beef, black Beans, and peanuts scored lower. wheat gluten scored lowest.

Thanks PDXMan for the added info. That was one of the articles I read. Like I said, I am NO expert on this since I only just learned about the digestion rate issue 2 days ago. I'm also a total non tracker when it comes to Protein, calories, carbs, etc. too much like being on a "diet" for me. I sometimes drink that 40g shake in an hour, So I decided to break it up into 2 20g shakes just for peace of mind.

Beach Lover, thanks for the great idea of mixing the shake in your coffee! I hadn't thought of that one!

Pdxman's information aligns closest to what I have been told, have read about and share with others.

More concretely, for active people,

Men: 25-30 g for most meals. 40 g is optimal following a hard workout.

Women: 15-20g for most meals. 30 g is optimal following a hard workout.

High quality casein Protein (slow burning) at night before bed provides aminos in the blood stream all night long. This really helps with fat burning and Protein synthesis.

High quality whey (fast burning) is best when waking and after a workout. A matrix protein works best for other meals.

My nut and surgeon both gave me the same information as you provided. They don't want us supplementing with shakes at all either. They want all my Protein coming from whole foods and eating 6-7 times a day which obviously varies from most other plans I have seen here. But it's working for me.

Could you give examples of high quality casein protein, high quality whey protein and matrix protein?

sure

Whey - ON gold standard whey

Casein - ON gold standard casein

Matrix - ON Hydrobuilder

I like chocolate in all my protein powders and have gravitated towards using ON (optimal nutrition) because taste is good and results are above average. I have tried a lot of different powders. Everyone has their own favorite powders. This is not to said I am only about powder as I like chicken multiple times a day, but powder makes it easier to hit the daily numbers.

This article appeared in my inbox this morning... echos the advice to space Protein out throughout the day and not overdoing it at one meal:

One other rule to remember is animal Protein breaks down in your body much easier than vegetable protein. If yu need some extra protein tuna will get you there quick

I used to like Chobani, but now there's something weird tasting about it. I'm going to try some other greek yogurt since that's always a good source of Protein.< /p>

My NUT doesn't want me eating Chobani or Oikos...the sugar is too high in both of them. She suggested Yoplait 100, Dannon Fit and Light (I think that's the name). I love chobani

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
