Why Whey In Water??

I keep seeing diets, with "whey in water" within them.

Why cant i mix it with semi-skimmed milk?

Up until now i've always mixed my why shakes in milk, and wouldn't like the taste of them in water. Is it a matter of taste? or is there more to it?

    Whey in water is absorbed quickly,so first thing and postworkout thats what you want to happen,at other times whey in skim milk is fine.

    depends what your goals are...

    TREBOR,

    I can understand PWO in that case, but first thing? Presume you mean first thing in the morning? is it really necessary for 'speed of absorbtion' ?

    Fats (i think it is) slow down the absorption of protein. So post workout when you want the protein absorbed as fast as possible, mixing with water is optimal to allow this. Try it, I've found some of the ones I have used taste ok in water, but don't use as much water as you would milk

    First thing when you have been asleep for hours on end with no food your body is craving fuel so again fast absorbsion is ideal.

    Whey in milk will be very quick acting also.

    Casein blend would be a better idea at other times other than PWO.

    How do you know whey in milk will be fast acting. In whole milk or half milk it will be slowed down surly?

    It will be still quite quick.

    The casein in the milk will slow it down yes, however i think he said skimmed milk which contains the less fat of the types of milk.

    Ok bud

    But I'm not sure on this one, nobody knows for sure, do they? I think fuzzi said semi-skimmed milk, which I think might make it not so fast acting, because of the fats and casein like you said.

    Yes you're right he did say semi skimmed.

    Could have sworn that it said skimmed.

    Yes, it will slow it to some point then.

    OK, i will stick to Whey in 'Semi'-skimmed milk at all times during the day when its needed, other than first thing in the morn, and post workout (when speed is of the essence).

    Cheers again guys.

    Fuzzi_Bear was a quick name i chose because it matched an email address i was using when i registered. I didnt think i'd be on MT as long as i have, as i didnt realise what a valuable source of into this place it, and hjow nice everyone is. (ive even got others to sign up since)

    So i thought i'd change my name to something a little more, well, better. There isnt a 'gayer' name on MT than Fuzzi_bear, lol
