For anyone who thinks food sources are superior to protein shakes......
Perhaps they are but my body didn't notice the difference at all.
I got sick of cooking meat and I am not a fan of convenient, canned or processed meats etc
So, for about 3 montsh now, I have been using a mixed veggie-protein-powder source (made of protein, hemp, brown rice etc) in place of 3 of my 4 meals' meat sources (which for me was white fish)
I have been doing this for 3+ months and I have not noticed ANY difference in body comp, weight etc
Before anyone asks, I continued to eat the other macros alongside the veggie-based protein shake (nuts, vegetables, etc)
