    Considering that the amount of proteins per shake differs significantly, either because some use milk, others water, or because shake "sizes" differ among users, or just because the protein content of the products people use simply differs, it may be more informative, if you would ask approximately how much proteins people consume per day via shakes.

    One post workout (one scoop O.N. Gold Standard, 1 cup skim, 1 cup ice water, 1 medium banana blended)

    One in the later evening a couple hours after my last meal as my evening snack. (same as above, except a tablespoon natty peanut butter for the bannana)

    When I am still relatively low cal (2800-3000) its two shakes taken pre and post. When I start adding in extra cals (approaching 3700+) I go with 3 with the third coming with my 3rd meal of the day (that also is with tuna).

    I have tried anally but it makes for "mud Butt" and the occasional uncomfortable situation in an office setting.

    I have one for breakfast/pwo, one about 2-3 hours later, then a chicken sandwich for lunch, a shake 2-3 hours later, then whatevers for supper,a snack, and then a shake before bed.

    Damn...I drink a lot of them, but it's the easiest way to consume protein every 2-3 hours.

    I try to get around 3-4 shakes in a day, if I'm lucky sometimes I will only have 1 or 2, depending on how convenient it is. If I have something that requires a blender, I will only have one or two. If I have something like isopure, well, that is easy enough to stir, and sometimes I shake up so nectar. Gotta have me my whey though.

    Whats crackin' bro? I lurk several times a day, but if I don't feel like I have something worthwhile to contribute I usually don't post. Feel free to PM me anytime if you just want to chat.

    II haven't been to well. I got really sick about the beginning of May. Between starting a new job, a summer semester is College, general life issues (mind on my money, money on my mind), I do believe my body had a WTF moment. Details can be found here: Does this sound like adrenal fatigue:( Then again, if you remember, I started feeling bad during the cycle...maybe it's related, maybe not. You'd think 3 months later if it was cycle related I'd be over it by now...but it just got worse.

    I'm ordering more stuff soon...probably do a log on it too. It'll be Epi and the last of my Mdrol. I'm lettin my body chill out now, I'll do bodyweight next week, then go hardcore the week after that if I think I can. I sucks how you can bust ass for years just to get sick and see it go down the crapper.

    This is why I don't really plan on any major cycles anymore. Just not worth it. I'm going to try to train naturally while being as unnatural as possible. So many good products out there now to increase natural test and do other good things. May as well take advantage of it.

    Depends on the schedule, ideally no more than 2. But sometimes it just doesn't work out that way.

    2 on work out days

    always one in the morning, with milk, oats and fruit.

    for the one after work out, i have it ready to go in a shaker bottle (protein powder, creatine and dextrose). I use water for this one.

    Zero. They are 110% unnecessary if you know what you're doing in the kitchen, which is already 90% of bodybuilding.

    Being that I am in my bulk phase, I take three a day (serious Mass by ON). One mid morning, one post workout, and one 30 min before bed.
