    It depends - if I have time to cook it only be a couple, but if I'm running around all day, all bets are off.

    Never anytime... way to busy about 7-9 a day why is that bad? it's cheaper than real food, and quick to make in advance than just refrigerate for the day till I eat it.

    Yeah i would suggest trying to get more of your protein from whole foods. Even if you are busy pre-make your meals ahead of time. I would suggest lowering your protein shakes to about 2-3 a day. Otherwise your body is constantly receiving whey as a protein source and its good to get a good blend of different types of protein. Also there is no substitute for whole food.

    I take 1 scoop whey with 10 egg whites + 1 whole egg + oatmeal for breakfast.
    Then 1.5scoops (protein blend:whey, casein, soy) for mid-morning snack and afternoon.
    2 scoops whey for post-workout.
    The Last, 2scoops (time released protein) before bed.

    I have been busy all day. I can't eat whole food all the time. That's why I eat 3 whole food meals (which is breakfast, lunch and dinner) and 3 shakes per day.
