3 shakes a day?
Is 3 shakes a day to much?
I'm getting roughly 2 solid meals a day, more on my days off from work.
A standard shake i make roughly includes:
Frozen fruits (mango/blueberries/summer and winter fruits)
REFLEX instant bulk 2 scoops
2 egg whites
some sort of dried fruits
morning afternoon and night. egg whites are usually just in the morning.
I work around 40-60hours a week, most of the time i'm not able to have 5/6 solid meals a day so i've turned to my blender! Anyone have any suggestions? 2 much?2 little? more solids needed?
on my days off and when i can have proper meals i'll have either steak/chicken/tuna/turkey.

Its not that 3 shakes a day is too much, I usually have about the same. The thing is, you are only getting 2 solid meals and that is not enough. If times are tough I can understand but there is almost always a way to bring some solid food with you whereever you can bring a shake.

I do cook up some chicken/turkey and take it into work with me now and then.I'm not that creative when it comes to cooking stuff up, i'll take chicken breasts in and just eat them by themselves when i get a chance. I work in a pub so depending on how busy it is sometimes i don't get a chance to eat for a good few hours. I've got access to a fridge at work but not a microwave.
Some nights it'll be a choice of more sleep and rushing in the morning or lack of sleep and more time to prepare and eat, i usually go for the sleep.

^^ Im with Lenn here. In order to compensate for a busy schedule and prevent a dependency of whey/compound shakes, you need to develope an "on the go" plan for your eating. Shakes are great, especially for recovery and prevent canabolism, but your body needs solid meals.
I work 50-65 w/week as well, and I had to do this to get my diet in check about two years ago. It will take some time on the front end, more money for bulk buys of food, but after a few weeks you will be in a groove and it will be great. Also, you will notice better preformance in the gym with solid meals/pre wo meals implemented on a regular basis.
