I'm looking specifically for studies that compare subjects that consume fast protein before and after a workout, to subjects that consume slow protein. I know there was a study that was recently posted that showed that consuming whey before and after a workout resulted in more muscle gain compared to those who only consumed carbs before and after, but i'm looking for something different here. In the article on the front page, Bryan references this study: 11. Boirie Y, Dangin M, Gachon P, Vasson M-P, Maubois J-L, and Beaufrère B. Slow and fast dietary proteins differently modulate postprandial protein accretion (amino acid turnover / postprandial protein anabolism / milk protein / stable isotopes) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA Vol. 94, pp. 14930-14935, December 1997 but i'm interested to see if these increased levels of hyperaminoacidaemia actually lead to muscle gain (i.e. it may be the case that these increased levels are not useful above the moderate levels facilitated by slow proteins) Reason I'm curious is because I've switched to using egg whites in my homemade shakes, instead of whey protein. For now, i use the whey protein in the shakes I consume right before and right after my workout (i only workout twice a week), but i'd like to know if i'd be sacrificing anything by using egg whites.
