I use Milk & Egg Protein Powder Sometimes in the morning or before bed. I usually mix it with whey though so it doesn't taste like ass.

Whats the macronutrient breakdown of the stuff and where do you get it?

Post workout you're better off using a protein blend rather than straight casein.

not instead of protein powder but yes, I use it sometimes with whey or MRP.

Milk powder is a very inexpensive and good source of additional protein to add to your shakes.

just be aware that for every 8g's protein your taking in 12 g's of sugar

The stuff I buy has like 1g carbs.

If I wanted 8g pro for 12g sugar I'd just drink milk lol.

Those were my thoughts exactly.

Is the stuff you buy cheap? And where do you get it at?
