Different kinds of protein

There are several sources of protein and they all have advantages. The most efficient proteins come from milk, meat, egg and fish. Less effective and easily absorbed proteins you find in beans and soy products.

Whey protein is the fastest acting protein and perfect for pre workout meals and post workout meals.

Milk protein like caseine acts slowly meaning the muscles get a steady supply of amino acids for a long time.

Egg protein is perfect for people who are allergic to lactose, aka milk sugar, since it's 100% free from lactose.

Protein from meat, fish and eggs are also kind of slow-acting sources good for your meals around the day, but not for the first post workout meal. At that time you need quickly absorbed nutrients for preventing further muscle breakdown.
