Craving Whey over meat

Is that usual? My only speculation is that Whey is more absorbable and therefore more desirable to the body. This is especially true on my training days. My body weight is 155lbs therefore, 155g protein and on training days I'll hit as high at 250g and less fat. Feedback?

If the question is not specific enough I can fix it upon your tailoring.

Sometimes a craving for a food is an indication that we have an allergy to it.

I saw a post that may relate to this. protein causes an insulin spike just like carbs but some sources of protein spike it more than others.

Nuts spike it the least next is chicken spikes it a little more beef even more then casein and last of all whey spikes it a lot. By the way insulin not only moves glucose into the liver and muscles it also is needed to move protein into the muscles.

Whey protein is known to be insulinogenic. That may be why you are 'craving' it.

That's incredible. Thank you for all the helpful posts friends. As it turns out, I am both allergic to it AND have had a sugar issue for quite sometime. Therefore, I might be latching onto the whey, 'high' rather than actually be wanting it nutritionally! On that note, I do have an addictions history; adderal, weed, smoking, it's likely I was having too good a time with those casomorphins. I had the same addiction with cheese and full fat dairy so I wouldn't rule it out! Thank you again!!!!
