    yeah, casein digests a lot more slowly than whey..lasts through the night.

    and yeah, i was reading that for 'hard gainers,' casein is better because it wont make you feel full (despite it digesting more slowly).. whey makes me full as fuck for HOURS.

    this month's MD has some good journal reports on Casein's effects..they had two gruops use both proteins (whey and casein), then they went to a buffet and watched how much they ate or some shit, and all the whey eaters were full considerably faster..

    also, they did some studies where people using casein as part of the protein regiment put on more muscle or a given period of time.

    this is my protein of choice. been drinking it for 2 years. i get it for 32+tax from homie hook up at a place i use to work.

    cookies and cream is the best one. i wish they made a strawberry.

    not as sweet as the syntha-6 one, way more drinkable. i never get tired of it. mix some cinnamon in it ftw.

    orange cream is not bad, but gets old after a while. i force my female friends to drink it, and once they try it, they really like it.

    You drink 4 cups of milk before bed? :eek:

    Casein may sit longer, but it still doesnt make you feel full.

    Hormones and Hunger Signals

    Human hunger and appetite are regulated by a remarkably complex set of overlapping feedback networks that involve numerous hormonal, psychological, and physiological influences. This is currently an intensive area of research, as major pharmaceutical companies seek a “magic bullet” weight-loss product to bring to market.

    Scientists looking for solutions to the obesity epidemic are keenly interested in the hormone cholecystokinin as a regulator of appetite. During the digestion of food, the gastrointestinal tract secretes cholecystokinin, a small peptide with multiple functions in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. Several decades ago, researchers found that cholecystokinin was largely responsible for the feeling of fullness or satiety experienced after a meal, and that it helped partially control appetite, at least in the short term.

    Additional hormones involved in satiety and appetite include insulin, leptin, glucagon-like peptide 1, and others. Dietary factors—particularly the amount and composition of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates ingested—determine which hormones are released and in what amounts.

    New studies suggest that whey may uniquely influence food intake through its effects on cholecystokinin and other pathways. While many studies have shown that protein is the most filling or satiating macronutrient, all proteins may not be equal in this regard. Two human studies conducted at the University of Surrey in England compared the effects of whey and casein (another milk-based protein) on appetite and satiety-related hormones, including cholecystokinin.1

    In the first study, participants consumed a liquid meal containing equivalent amounts of either whey or casein. Ninety minutes later, they were allowed to eat freely at a buffet. The whey group consumed significantly fewer calories at the buffet than did the casein group.[1]

    In the second study, investigators examined the effects of the whey and casein beverages on plasma levels of amino acids and satiety-related hormones. Compared to the casein drink, the whey beverage produced a 28% increase in plasma amino acid concentrations over three hours, along with 60-65% increases in two hormones associated with satiety, cholecystokinin and glucagon-like peptide. The whey group also reported a greater sense of fullness and satisfaction than the casein group. The researchers concluded, “These results implicate post-absorptive increases in plasma amino acids together with both [cholecystokinin and glucagon-like peptide as potential mediators of the increased satiety response to whey and emphasize the importance of considering the impact of protein type on the appetite response to a mixed meal.”[1]

    Taken together, these two studies indicate that whey consumption promotes feelings of satisfaction and fullness that lead to reduced appetite and decreased food intake. Whey may thus provide valuable assistance for those seeking to lose weight by helping to limit their caloric intake.
