Workout Gurus: Greek Yogurt vs Casein



I know Casein is just about the best 'pre-bed' protein there is. How does Greek Yogurt compare to casein as a pre-bedtime protein? I'd much rather eat something than drink a shake and have to piss in the middle of the night.

I think you answered your question. From what I read the protein in the greek yogart digests slowly just like the Casein. It just depends if you want to eat or not. Plus the calorie content might be different.

am I the only one who doesn't take protein before bed? I take it after I workout or as a meal replacement.

That 'yogurt' you normally get 'injected' in bed doesn't really work anymore?

I can't afford to lose weight so protein right before bed and immediately when I wake up is a must

You're missing out dude. The point of taking casein or something like Greek yogurt is that it feeds your body for the eight or so hours you're asleep. If you're following a proper diet you'll be getting protein every 3-4 hours while you're awake. This comes as close as we can to keeping that cycle going without having to wake up to eat.

TTT it sounds as if you have the same metabolism as myself. I call my toilet the money pit. I can eat 3500 cals a day. My body cannot hold it I feel bloated and head to the bathroom. I have been between 168-175 for 10 years. No supplements (weight gain, protein,etc) or diet changes that.

I am going to lunch now

That's not too bad really. I'm 6'1" 187 now. Dropped about 8 lbs since I gave up drinking.

It sucks man...I consistently eat 3000-3500 calories a day and cannot gain weight. I've been getting stronger, but no weight gain

re: Workout Gurus: Greek Yogurt vs Casein


What aggravates me is that I am lifting as much or more than MOST of the guys in that gym. My workout partner is about 6' 210, built solid, and I'm doing the same weight, same sets as him. I wish I could sacrifice strength for weight
