    Drinking Whey Protein vs Eating Chicken Breast.. Is there a difference?

    One service of whey protein is generally around 130 calories with 24 grams of protein.

    A 4oz serving of skinless/boneless chicken breast is generally around 120 calories with 26 grams of protein.

    So the chicken offers more protein with fewer calories. I can also eat 4oz of chicken a lot faster than I can drink a glass full of whey.


    Is there a difference between drinking a whey protein shake after a workout vs eating 4oz of chicken breast?

    no. people put a lot of emphasis on absorption and digestion speeds but at the end of the day, your protein intake is most important. If you would rather eat chicken PWO instead of having a shake, have at it. IMO a shake is more convenient and tastes better, and I use two scoops of whey giving me 40+ grams and it is far less filling than two chicken breasts, leaving me more room for more protein, carbs, fats.

    If you have meat available, choose the meat over protein powder every time. If REAL food can get you to reach your nutritional goals, don't use powdered products.

    Food is always better than a shake. Majority of your protein should come from food. But there's obviously nothing wrong with a shake.

    post workout i prefer whey because it digests quickly
    any other time i prefer whole food

    heres a study on whey vs whey pulsed to stimulate a slower digesting protein
    doesnt exactly replicate a chicken breast but i feel its applicable, small sample but interesting study
    also whey has a greater amount of leucine to stimulate MPS to a greater degree
    Abstract
    Background: Ingestion of whey or casein yields divergent patterns of aminoacidemia that influence whole-body and skeletal muscle myofibrillar protein synthesis (MPS) after exercise. Direct comparisons of the effects of contrasting absorption rates exhibited by these proteins are confounded by their differing amino acid contents. Objective: Our objective was to determine the effect of divergent aminoacidemia by manipulating ingestion patterns of whey protein alone on MPS and anabolic signaling after resistance exercise. Design: In separate trials, 8 healthy men consumed whey protein either as a single bolus (BOLUS; 25-g dose) or as repeated, small, "pulsed" drinks (PULSE; ten 2.5-g drinks every 20 min) to mimic a more slowly digested protein. MPS and phosphorylation of signaling proteins involved in protein synthesis were measured at rest and after resistance exercise. Results: BOLUS increased blood essential amino acid (EAA) concentrations above those of PULSE (162% compared with 53%, P < 0.001) 60 min after exercise, whereas PULSE resulted in a smaller but sustained increase in aminoacidemia that remained elevated above BOLUS amounts later (180-220 min after exercise, P < 0.05). Despite an identical net area under the EAA curve, MPS was elevated to a greater extent after BOLUS than after PULSE early (1-3 h: 95% compared with 42%) and later (3-5 h: 193% compared with 121%) (both P < 0.05). There were greater changes in the phosphorylation of the Akt-mammalian target of rapamycin pathway after BOLUS than after PULSE. Conclusions: Rapid aminoacidemia in the postexercise period enhances MPS and anabolic signaling to a greater extent than an identical amount of protein fed in small pulses that mimic a more slowly digested protein. A pronounced peak aminoacidemia after exercise enhances protein synthesis. This trial was registered at clinicaltrials. gov as NCT01319513. © 2011 American Society for Nutrition.

    Yes, there is a difference, Protein Supplements aren't regulated. The chance of actually getting the protein it's supposed to have isn't very high. Chicken>Protein powder.

    Can someone explain why the chicken is superior to a protein shake? Not that I have a problem with chicken, but I prefer a protein shake due to convenience and I like the taste much better. I'm sure we've all heard that a protein shake will be absorbed and digested by the body much quicker. Liquid meals digest faster than solid food meals, especially when the solid food contains fat. I realize there is debate about whether the timing is important, but it is hard to dispute that getting a quick source of aminos after a workout is a good thing. Even though most nutrients should come from broken down food, how can the post-workout shake be worse than food?

    seeing as a huge amount of micronutrients can be found in chicken breast, chicken breast is your best bet, as far as protein intake -- the same stuff.

    This is a BS comparison. What we should be discussing is the differences between a whey protein shake and a chicken breast shake. Blend up a chicken breast and add it to water.

    whole food will always be better to consume when up against any protein powder. I was just saying it's easier to throw a scoop in with some water and shake then to cook up a chicken breast, lol

    I would suggest a shake PWO since it will take time for your body to break down the chicken breast and the powder is already broken down. I normally save my chicken breast for my meal about an hour after my PWO shake.

    OP, 25 grams of protein is 100 calories no matter what the source. The other calories in the protein powder are from fat and carbs, which sometimes comes from the whey, and for chicken, it depends on the part of the chicken you eat.

    The issue with these types of studies is that they measure a small window of time and have yet to be conducted long term to see if there is a measureable increase in accumulated lean mass over time.

    whey has all the bcaa's u need post workout with quick digestion, chicken is better for eating throughout the day. i believe in shakes between meals, keeps the stomach expanded, keeps a surge of protein through my body, and then im still able to eat 2 chicken breasts every meal

    It's funny how people make absurd bro-science claims without any backing. They just reason that chocolate flavored powder is less superior than animal flesh because it makes sense to the mind best.

    Whey has the best amino acid profile, it has a TON of immune system benefits that chicken doesn't have, it typically tastes better, it costs less, it has calcium for those who don't get enough for their daily needs, and it is micronutrient dense.

    You need to stop thinking of whey as an artificial magic muscle powder inferior to whole food. Whey IS food. It's powdered, flavored food. If I could grind chicken breast into a powder, get some sucralose and flavoring and put that on the chicken, does it make it inferior? Now I do know the process isn't that simple, but you get the point. The idea that whey is inferior to real food has been proven time and time again the be mute in point. One thing that IS better about chicken is studies support that protein shakes are partially disposed by the body when compared to "real" food. Nonetheless, WNBF bodybuilder Josh Hyaduck claims to get ALL of his protein needs via whey, and his physique in my opinion, is up and running to be one of the best in the entire WNBF.

    So if you're not a pro bodybuilder and aren't concerned with the little 1 and 2% differences that build a physique, go ahead and replace whey for your whole foods if you like. I personally don't but I very highly doubt you won't see the results. Your body doesn't see a Scivation label and immediately think to itself, "Oh this isn't REAL food and it's pretty tasty so I'm not gonna build muscle or use up the full caloric value".

    My 2 cents.

    And btw, the "quick digestion" arguments for whey are stupid. Yes, whey does digest quicker, but you know what works during your workout AND immediately after your workout for max results? The meals you ate earlier in the day/yesterday. When you consume food it doesn't immediately get shuttled to the muscles. Meals overlap in the digestive system, and take HOURS to be completely used up. If you ate absolutely nothing after working out, your muscles would still be fed just the same as if you took whey post-workout. Whey should be used as a convenience tool or a source of protein for those who cannot afford whole food protein or have trouble digesting large amounts of meat a day. Again, it's not some magic muscle powder. Treat it like a type of dairy product (because it is).

    I have always understood food to be food. If you Lack the micros chicken has then Chicken will benefit you more. If you don't then I don't see how body composition will differ.

    the only way I seeit affect body composition is in the varied levels of satiety where chicken would be better on a cut and whey better if you have trouble getting down 150 - 200g protein from solid food. Thus you may eat too much if you only use whey on a cut or you may not eat enough if you avoid whey on a bulk, MAY being the key word.

    I like to cook and chicken is very versatile. Last I checked I cant put whey protein powder on the grill or in a sauté pan.

    If your powder and chicken have identical macro's, it won't matter in the grand scheme of things.

    Do I prefer real food over powder? Of course.

    Does it really matter, though? Nope.
