    Casein vs Whey Protein Before Bed

    I am semi lactose intolerance, but I am planning to take protein before bed. Lots of people say that Casein Protein is much better then Whey as bedtime protein because it is a slower protein. I am wondering how much better is Casein vs Whey?

    I know Casein is better, but how much better? As I am semi lactose intolerance, I've always stuck with Whey. I don't want to feel sick unless the gains are great.

    No need for protein before bed unless you haven't hit your macros for the most part. If milk based proteins bother your stomach there are also plenty of alternatives just as a heads up.
    What sort of reaction does whey/casein give you?
    Some dairy sources can work well with some people with lactose intolerance, specifically isolates. Also there are more plant based proteins out there now as the market grows.

    For a non dairy protein SAN Raw Fusion is popular.
    For an isolate powder, VPX Zero Carb SRO is priced well. I have also given a few scoops to a lactose intolerant friend, and he didn't have any problems with it, though every person will vary.

    What led you to believe that casein is better than whey? You aren't going to see any great gains from a protein powder. Protein powders should be used to help you reach your daily protein and calorie needs.

    cottage cheese is like pure casein, just eat cottage cheese if u want a slow-absorbing protein since its much cheaper. I sometimes like to blend it with natural PB and chocolate whey for a tasty snack at night

    Sorry, to clarify, I am using this last bedtime shake to hit my protein/calorie macro and I want to be as efficient as possible. I am planning to mix up a weight gaining shake but am trying to determine which type of protein powder would be best for me.

    This. Meal timing means next to nothing for gaining muscle, and has a small effect on fat loss (less frequent feeding is slightly better for HGH levels)

    Like mentioned above, one protein powder isn't really going to be better then the other in terms of contributing to your progress. For almost everyone basic whey concentrate, MPI, blend, etc will do.
    If a dairy based protein bothers you, then your best bet would be a non dairy source.
    What protein powders have you used in the past and what was your reaction (in regard to your lactose intolerance)

    then do whichever tastes better to ya brah. casein is a slower digesting protein and typically makes a thicker almost milkshake like consistency and i did it when i was a noob because i was told to

    I don't remember which brands I have tried in the past but I felt a bit sick after most of them. My buddy told me to try ON Whey and I have been feeling great.

    If it's working for you, stick with that. You can always add in peanut butter, coconut oil, Almond/Coconut milk, etc to up the calories.
