    In my eyes(not to be critical), sometimes achieving the best results can't always be easy. Sometimes you have to say screw it, hold your nose and chug. The results will be worth it if you keep it up.

    The reason you take whey protein is to speed up the process of getting protein to your muscles. It makes no sense to slow it down. The quicker you get the protein to your muscles, the better. Milk can slow down that process quite a bit.

    You're going to get, what, 25 grams of whey protein from a shake? Is it really worth it to add milk to get that 2 more grams of whey and 6 grams of casein? It's not going to do anything good for you.

    yea but the difference isnt that big concerning digestion. milk has a lot of nutrients that are good and very beneficiary for weight training. and water has none.

    Drinking milk is going to negate the Whey protein. Water will not. The whole point of using Whey is to get protein to your muscles quicker.

    If you don't have the discipline to drink water as opposed to milk, that's pretty sad. If you think it's better to drink milk as opposed to water, then you're just misinformed.

    Where are you getting this from??? How does milk "negate" whey protein? This is just wrong.

    Read this WHOLE thread, then tell me what you think.

    Does too have training benefits:

    WATER
    Water is so important and yet so many people avoid it. Why? Probably because they donít like having to use the washroom all the time, but believe the bodybuilding community: it is highly anabolic. Water has many benefits and this article will not address each and everyone but some important ones as they pertain to athletic performance.

    Water:
    -clears out toxins
    -Makes supplements like creatine more effective because creatine pulls water into muscle cells and for this you need a lot of water.
    -A lot of vitamins are water soluble so you need water to make the vitamins function properly.
    -for every gram of glycogen stored in cells, 3-4 grams of water will be stored. This can cause some serious cell volumization.
    -helps to regulate body temperature.

    Milk is fine for whey protein...but it all depends on your goals. If you want to bulk up, add milk. If you are cutting, use water. Both are obviously beneficial.

    I prefer to get my protein intake from real food; that's just me. I enjoy some brands that do offer tasty shakes but real food will offer so much more.

    A lot of the nutrition you are in-taking needs water in order to work correctly.

    Obviously, you should be drinking a lot of water if you're working out. But it really makes no difference whether you choose to mix your protein with milk or water. Protein isn't going to "not work" if you mix it with milk.

    I do water simply because I don't want to pay for milk.

    But I think you're missing his point. For me at least, I do post-workout whey protein to quickly refuel (feed) muscles with protein so they can grow instead of "cannibalizing". Milk WILL slow down this process of getting protein to your muscles - by how much I have no idea, I'm not a trainer. So if one's goal in taking whey protein is to provide a source of protein as fast as possible, it makes sense to use water.

    I'm sure either way isn't a big deal and the benefits will still be there no matter which one you mix it with, but I just think you're missing the logic in his post.
    If you think this is my signature, you're right!

    I don't want to keep this argument going on and on.. but if you read the thread that I linked to, you'd know that what you wrote just isn't true.

    If you choose to mix with water because you can do it immediately as you leave the gym as opposed to going home to mix with milk, then yeah, you're getting protein to your muscles faster with water. But as far as digestion goes, there is ZERO evidence to suggest that water gets protein to your muscles faster than milk.
