I need advice, please. I am trying to lose about 25 lbs. I do cardio 3 days a week and weights 3 days week. My friend was saying Casein protein was better than Whey protein powder for losing weight. When I went and read up on it, everyone seems to say whey is better because it absorbs faster. Is that true and does it make a difference which one I use?
It’s true that whey absorbs faster than casein protein, that’s the gist of it, but it’s not necessarily better for that reason. In fact, while people used to just use one type of protein powder, it’s very common now to see people using 2 or even 3 types to take advantage of the dfferences. They’re just more popular now than ever.
In general, whey is used anytime you want a fast-absorbing protein, not necessarily one that’s going to fill you up for a long time or sustain growth while you sleep. So for most people, whey is best for good for a breakfast shake, a preworkout shake, or post-workout shake.
