    I've never heard of, "normal protein," what is it?
    Look under your chair. YOU GET A REP, AND YOU GET A REP, REPS FOR EVERYONE! If I get a rep, you get a rep, every time. Give me a link to make my life a little easier.

    If you don't give me a link and you didn't post in the thread you rep'd me in, I'm not gonna go searching for you. I'll get everyone on recharge.

    Unless you are in a very narrow category of situation where speed of the protein assimilation is important (such as endurance training (think marathon) then you will generally see no benefit from choosing whey protein over protein from any other high quality sources such as beef, chicken, fish, etc.

    Whey protein's cheap, tasty and easy to get a lot of. That's what makes it such a big thing in athletics and bodybuilding. Personally I prefer real food for protein.

    All these guys are right. Its also important to know whey digests quickly so its beneficial to take it places like post workout when you body craves a quick absorbing protein. The opposite of what you want for before bed where it is mostly beneficial to ingest a slow absorbing protein to last you as far through sleep as possible to fast the least amount until morning (like casein found in cottage cheese). You should eat as much reg food for protein as you can and then supplement whey in to reach what you can't get from food to hit your protein requirements for the day.

    Nope try again. Make things EASY and forget about nutrient timing. Hit daily protein macros and don't worry about slow/fast digesting protein. No need for whey after a workout or casein before bed.

    there was a question about "normal" vs whey protein (whatever that means)...

    and a nutrient timing argument broke out.

    [sigh]

    Basically good quality whey just helps you get in more protein than what you'd comfortably be able to eat. Plus it is a leucine-rich form of protein which has been linked to greater muscle gain in some studies.
