    How many protein shakes do you drink a day

    I drink about 4-5 protein shakes a day. I'd like to get more of my protein from real food, but I drive a truck all day. It's so convenient to just pour some water into my shaker bottle with powder.

    It digests way too fast, leaving your body w/nothing to pull from.

    3 max w/3 solid meals at every other meal.

    post workout-2 scoops

    and sometimes in conjuction with pre-workout meals, depending on my appetite.

    I drink between 3 and 4 per day, plus I eat foods that are high in protein content.

    1 scoop blended protein before bed

    PM workout days:
    2 scoops post workout
    1 scoop blended protein before bed

    off days:
    1 scoop blended protein before bed

    given the choice between a whole food meal and an MRP, i go with the food every time. i love food way too much

    Pre-workout & post-workout only. But I also eat 2 protein bars a day, between meals. Do they count toward the total?

    I take in 2-3 a day...When I first started it gave me mega-shits. What sucks is the main reason I take it in is because my parents get shitty with me on how much I eat...They started making me pay for my own food during summer when I had a job, 200$ a week for food, gained 40 pounds. But I still ate the 3 meals a day for free, plus an additional 6

    I've tried EAS which was 19 a shake...Now I'm up to some other kind, fairly good with 23 grams a shake in only one scoop.

    Nope, one scoop is 22. 44g is using two scoops. It is pretty cheap so you can go through it fast; it is only $19.89 for 6 lbs. if you shop at Costco.

    Yeah, no shipping since you can just pick it up instead of having to order

    One per day. I find I get better results having the majority of my pro. intake come from natural food.

    I take 3, 44g shakes a day. I'd like to just take one post-workout, but it's hard to get to 350g-400g a day with just food.

    I try to use mostly food, but 1 or 2 shakes here and there sure come in handy - especially when I am in a hurry.

    I consume one first thing in the morning and another immediately after my workout. The rest of my protein intake comes from tuna and chicken.

    Depends. Depends on how much I can get from whole food sources. If I am having one of those days where I have less time than usual - I'll slam a few Myoplexes for a quick fix. The ultimate goal is simply not to starve the building process...

    thats if u use whey, a fast digesting powder. i think a combo of soy/egg/casein yields a much higher biological value. and since casein is so large it takes up to 6 hrs to fully break down, keeping u anabolic throughout the day

    Around 2-3. Depending on if I worked out or not and my present count.

    Each one has 50g Protein (Precision Whey)

    i also have roughly 3 shakes ED... but never on their own... I always try to eat something solid along with the shake to slow down digestion... hopefully thats not just a waste...

    4-5, + 4 meals
    2 used as weight gainers, 1 post workout, 1 in the middle of sleep, sometimes 1 pre workout with a meal. Don't have time at work for 3 meals so 2 have to be quick.
