was just wondering what was the best source of protein other than whey (sometimes I forget to bring mine to the gym and have to eat, may also be in a situation where I cannnot eat whey)

I know the point of whey is that it is fast digesting. perhaps proteins with high biological values would be the best such as beef chicken etc?

thank you for your answers

Whey has 100% BV..

But if I didn't have whey.. i'd just have some egg whites as soon as possible.

whey's importance is also how it works with the amino acids, and delivery system.

Liquid Egg Whites- around 90 BV or so.

gotcha, so are boiled eggs OK or do they have to be raw, I guess not raw because of samonella

just crack the egg, strain the white into a pan and fry over the stove. Its alot faster then boiling, but boiling is fine

I was just thinking of having like 30 eggs boiled at home at any given time so I can ea tthem at home or take them to the gym. so cooking does not lower the biological value I am assuming

Eggs for the win definitely. If you dont have any eggs go for chicken, tuna or any lean meat in the house hehe.

I think when they are boiled they should last pretty long. I've eaten boiled eggs up to 4 or 5 days "old" and have been fine. maybe the shell protects the insides

lol arent they a bitch to peel after that long though?!?! unless you heat em up in some warm water, and drop em in some cold water to loosen the shell up...but other than that=/
