so you can get protein quickly into the bloodstream or just stick to it for post workout? Also Tim, if you're reading this...if I buy the cassein protein online, should I even customize it with 30% whey...why not just go for the 100% cassein if its slow absorbing I'm after before going to sleep? Is the 30% whey to make it taste better?

approx. 8 hours with no new protein sources?
I take my weight gainer in thr morning so my body can feed right away? So i suggest it.
Casien is slow as you have mentioned you can also slow digestion by adding a few complex carbs. The whey is for the first little burst of GH release i am geussing.

If you are on a fat burning program and doing your cardio in the morning like you should be you want to wait until after your cardio to ingest the protein or else it will be simply used as energy, and not very efficently either. If you are bulking or some other goals, or do not do morning cardio then its a great idea.If you always talk about how you could be in great shape if you just worked out and ate right, why don't you just work out and eat right?
