HS football strength coach always told us protein powder was a waste of money.
your high school coach was a smart one, huh?
besides the fact that its got the milk sugars in it still, there isnt really any difference.
I guess you would need a cup of it to get 24g of protein and that would be 36 g of sugar. I guess that might be a problem.
I've made some ghetto protein powder out of powdered milk and carnation instant breakfast (a powder yo mix and drink)...
cheap and effective but supposedly it is not absorbed as quickly as whey...
80 cals 12carbs and 8 grams of protein < 120 cal 3g carbs 24 g protein... you do the math
but my HS pole vaulting coach said the milk whey is better
Simple solution : drink it sooner
It's perfectly fine, especially as a drink around your workouts because it has a good carbrotein ratio. The only problem would be if you're lactose intolerant but that's pretty much it.
whey > the liquid in cottage cheese > milk
i eat my cottage cheese with a strainer, that way i get maximum drainage of the liquid back into the container... then when i'm finished eating the solid I just chug whatever's left.
Milk fucks me up.
yup...it worked fine when I used it...just not quite as convenient as whey...
Nice. I always eat my cottage cheese straight out of the measuring cup and drink the bottom of it when I'm done with my 1/2 cup serving if there's any in there.
plus 36g of carbs....would you rather have that or 3?
well thats the total carbohydrates so that includes the 12g of sugar
i meant to reach the 24g of protein needed, you have to triple that serving size which would = 36g of carbs and 36g of sugar, have 3 of these shakes per day and that's 72g protein, 108g carbs and 108g of sugar
what... did somebody change thread title to "how many shots of whiskey did you have last night?"
