Casein addiction?

Hey,

I recently bought some Casein protein from ON and its the most amazing, tastiest protein I have ever tasted. I put one scoop in a bowl with a tiny bit of water and its AMAZING! I add a banana, its EVEN MORE AMAZING! Just had it with honey, and I had to hide back a tear of happiness.

I have never been able to hit 1g of protein to bodyweight, and most of my protein was from whey. Now, I have 53g of casein with a banana for launch, and 23g 4 hours later, not to hit my 1g per pound but because its super nice. I will probably have another 23g before bed.

Apart from the risk of inflammation is there anything else I should be worried about? I dont know why I am asking this, probably because from now on I will be increasing my protein intake by 100% which is a big deal.

What is this "risk of inflammation" you're referring to?

There's nothing to worry about though.. it's just protein. Personally I'd be worried if protein powder was my only source of protein, but otoh there is no scientific basis for this worry I have so I wouldn't recommend worrying.

I'd maybe add some meat and fish in there, but hey it's all good.

I read somewhere that casein is the form of protein that can cause inflammation issues or make current ones worse, but it depends on the individual.

It is not my only source of protein but maybe 70%, It cant be helped, I am poor and the powder protein is cheap. I also suppliment fish oil.

Yeeeah. the internet is full of lies and misinformation. Casein won't cause no inflammation. Nor will it do anything bad for your kidney etc. Unless you have kidney problems already that is.

Protein powder sure is the cheapest source of protein.. unless you have chickens and get eggs I guess. Enjoy :)

Would the amount of protein be detrimental to weight loss? I assume it definately is not but like I said I could replace most meals with the casein, the only reason why I dont is because I would literally be eating like 70% protein diet, with the only fat coming from fish oil.

Its a silly question really. The casein I have is like the best pudding ive ever tasted, just want an excuse to eat more of it ;)

The only time protein is detrimental to your weight loss is if it makes you exceed your maximum caloric intake. Weight loss is 100% about keeping calories in below calories out. Also if you have certain kidney problems high protein might be a big issue.

For most people adding more protein will result in less calories being eaten / day because most find protein filling.

I actually go on ~95% protein diets quite frequently (the remaining % being omega-3 oil and maybe 10grams of carbs and 10 grams of other fats). Check out Lyle McDonalds "Rapid Fat Loss Handbook" for more details on this.


Tbh. I think you will grow bored of your pudding :D I'm a bit like that anyway. I find a nice set of things I like to eat and then I eat just that for a month or three. and if it is *all* you eat you should really look into some multivitamins :)

You work for ON? ;)

Yes its that brand. The vanilla casein is amazingly tasty. Goes well on its own very thick, some honey makes its very nice.

Word on the street though is the chocolate flavors are the best. Im running out of my vanilla so I will get back to you on that :)

The vanilla whey tastes aweful though, but not the worst ive had.

Thanks for sharing but I've a issue, I'm afraid that it can be considered disgusting.
So, should I share it or not if anyone don't take it personally. :)Clarkston Workout
