Adding Oil to Whey Protein

Just a quick question that has me confused. If I use a whey protein like Grow! and add either olive oil or flax to the drink, does it have the similar effect of slower burning drinks like Metabolic Drive? Thanks in advance.

I don’t think it’ll be as slow but yes, it’ll slow down the absorption rate compared to drinking it alone.
don’t forget that Metabolic Drive has another type of protein and so the slow digestion is not the only tangible difference.

If you’re trying to slow down digestion/absorption make it into a more balanced liquid meal.

Throw in that Olive Oil, maybe some Almond Butter? Fruits, finish it with some Fish Oil perhaps?

And the above poster is referring to the Casein found in Metabolic Drive.
