View Full Version : Using Up Protein Powder

09-26-2010, 10:14 AM

I recently bought a 10lb(?) box of MGN Whey protein. I also placed an order for casein protein so that I can use that when I make my oatmeal or for shakes (non pwo). I was wondering if I could also use the whey in my oatmeal and or shakes as long as I include some source of carbs or fats?

I know that whey is a fast digesting protein but when combined with a fat or carb I heard that it slows the digestion down? I just have a huge amount of whey to use and I find that casein tends to be more expensive than whey so if I could use whey in it's place sometimes when I'm trying to hit my macros that'd be great.

Hopefully my question makes sense, thanks.

Yes, perfectly fine to use whey with oats and shakes.

Combining with fats and carbs will help slow digestion. Dont worry about that too much.

Just hit those targeted cals/macros on a daily basis and you'll be fine.

By recently I meant several months ago. Feels like recently considering I still have a crapton left because it was 10lbs. They removed MGN from bodybuilding site? I noticed there's only unflavored left whereas I'm using cupcake batter or something along this lines.

And thanks Pbateman2, exactly what I thought.
