I was just reading this question about drinking water during/after meals.
And one of the answerers, Greg, made a comment that drinking enough water can cause the plug at the bottom of the stomach to open. Which essentially explains why taking pills on an empty stomach works the way it does.
My question has to do with ISO Whey Protein, which is supposed to be refined for quick absorption. I drink 60 grams of the protein powder mixed with milk. So if I drink this on an empty stomach it will go right into the intestines correct as it will force the plug at the bottom of the stomach to open.
So the question is: Should I be drinking this protein drink on an empty stomach and should I sip it or is downing it in a few gulps okay? I usually drink it first thing in the morning mixed with creatine?
