The casein powder is also pretty gritty and doesn't mix as easily as the Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey. I found that mixing one scoop of casein and one scoop of whey makes a less clumpy shake and tastes better too. I really like this shake when I train in the morning. I start sipping it on the way to the box, drink most of it during the strength portion of the workout, and finish it on the way home. The mix of fast and slow digesting protein made me feel fuller longer. This might be entirely psychological but I have a tendency to attack food all morning long if I workout in the AM and this shake kept me satiated until lunchtime. And I mean real lunchtime, not the oh wow, it's 11:07, totally time for lunch lunchtime.
I ran out of whey powder a few weeks ago, but I had a bunch of travel lined up and I was concerned that my bodybuilding.com shipment might be picked up by a neighbor so I delayed placing an order. I started drinking casein only shakes until the tub ran out. I wouldn't say they're bad but I'm definitely looking forward to my 5 lbs tub of Extreme Chocolate flavored whey showing up this week.
|I used to find it so satisfying to finish a jug of powder, but now I just think about how expensive it is. Eek!|
I drink a mocha protein shake every day for breakfast. If I'm training in the morning, I use two scoops. If not, I use one.
