Slow acting and fast acting protein powders?


Recommended Posts



I just talked to my BIL who is a competitive body builder (but not vegan) and he told me right after my workout I should take 30-40 grams of a fast acting protein powder and then right before bed I should take a slow acting protein powder. He's not familiar with vegan options though so I was hoping someone could tell me which types of protein powder are fast acting and which are slow acting.


He also told me I need to have some carbs with my post-workout protein shake. He suggested rice cakes with jam. I was wondering if something like dried fruit would work too since it would be more convenient to bring along with me?
