Depends on how your diet is really among how well you can tolerate the protein in liquid form.
I would say one or two tops unless you're an advanced lifter. Fat and calories are dependant on what you add to the protein. skim milk and protein is usually no more than 1-3 grams of fat. Add some rolled or steel oats and you get a nice shake.
I wouldn't go with more then 35% of my total protein intake from shakes. Food is always better and tastier

i have to have at least 3 in order to get near the 400gram mark a day...
i usually have 4-6 among lots of food.
1 and its pwo, the more whole foods the better, but if your pressed for time or job issues then i would add oatmeal or flax to a shake just to get some more nutrients in there.
I usually sip them so they last longer, and the delivery is more kinda timed delivery, and you always have some food coming in, which is good for bulking as you curb cravings, and still eat well.
PWO, otherwise I'll only use it when I've got no opertunity to eat real food.
