Anybody just use powdered skim milk instead of protein powder for protein shakes?

    besides the fact that its got the milk sugars in it still, there isnt really any difference. :dunno:


    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...:dunno:

    It's perfectly fine, especially as a drink around your workouts because it has a good carb:protein 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.

    :bigthumb: 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. :mamoru:

    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
