      Due to digestive problems, I can't have protein shakes because of the sweeteners most of them contain. I really want to focus on investing the money I'm saving on quality food. One question remains...What foods can I eat that contain whey protein or a fast-absorbing protein for post workout nutrition? I thought about ***e Greek Yogurt and adding some pineapple chunks as a carb source, but after some research it seems to contain mostly casein protein. What are your thoughts or suggestions?

      Whey is a protein from milk. I think milk is like 80% casein, 20% whey. That being said, why do you want a fast-absorbing protein?

      For post-workout snack. I was doing whey protein shake before, but I can't continue doing that because it's causing digestive issues for me.

      You don't need a fast-absorbing protein post-workout. That's a myth and it's advocated by supplement companies so you buy their products.

      And they put a ****load of crappy ingredients like artificial sweeteners that have messed up my digestive system. So you think the greek yogurt with the pineapple is good?

      Yeah that's fine. As long as you meet your protein needs for the day you should be fine.
