    There are so many different types of protein,(whey, soy, egg) I want to know what the experts on FN had to say about what kind is best. Also the brand that you guys use. Maybe just a link or anything will do. thanks

    Some research articles proved that large amounts of soy increased estrogen or something like that.

    I don't personally like the way egg protein tastes.

    Whey hasn't really treated me wrong, so that's what I buy.

    Egg tastes like shit and soy is worthless. I always buy whey/casein.

    Micellar casein, the more expensive kind.

    Whey absorbs faster. Best postworkout.
    Casein slower (better for pre-bedtime meals).

    So eat both.

    casein = slower absorbing (the reason you take it at night is so you'll get a steady stream of protein going into you throughout the night)

    whey = faster absorbing (take it post workout or right when you wake up because that's when your body is craving protein and you need to get that protein in there fast)

    I've used All The Whey, Dymatize, Optimum Nutrition, Syntrax Nectar, Next Level -- a lot of them. From experience, I'd say go with ON. It's cheap and the flavors are about medium on a scale from good to bad, but in reality, the flavors are really good considering the price.

    by the way, if you want Casein, you should try AtLargeNutrition.com and get the chocolate flavor. It's the only casein whey I've ever tried but it's pretty good.
