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.Product Educator | USPowders

Yah, I believe shakes should be used spariningly. I put a scoop in my milk that I add to my muslei in the morning for flavour and one after I workout. So 1 -4 days a week 2- 3 days
06-06-2008, 12:04 PM
usually 1 post workout and 1 before bed.... sometimes i'll have a nother mixed in somewhere throughout the day if i'm pressed for time

2 a day. I train in the AM.
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)
06-06-2008, 12:27 PM
1 post workout morning, 1 afternoon (snack), 1 evening before bed. so 3 on average.
06-06-2008, 12:34 PM
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).
06-06-2008, 01:18 PM
Three, one upon awaking, one post workout, one before bed
06-06-2008, 01:23 PM
cero (that's spanish for zero) i quit doing it cause powder protein messes up my stomach and makes it hard to eat.

How do you guys "take" yours. I usually take mine orally. Occasionally I go IM though.
06-06-2008, 02:19 PM
I've been trying transdermal, but I keep getting a rash.
06-06-2008, 02:26 PM
6 for the past 2 weeks....but I've been on the velocity diet.
Normally 1, 2 at most.
06-06-2008, 02:27 PM
I have tried anally but it makes for "mud Butt" and the occasional uncomfortable situation in an office setting.

I drink a few real ones...
2 cups of whole raw milk with 3 egg yolks with a little hersheys special dark chocolate cocoa and some stevia. Cheaper and real.
06-07-2008, 03:36 PM
one before the club, one after the club, mixed with a jaeger bomb. fcukin skanks.
06-19-2008, 08:01 AM
1 in the morning, 1 at night. Golden FINISH post workout.
So 3, but there could be more thrown in there....I prefer whole food!
06-19-2008, 03:51 PM
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.
06-19-2008, 04:21 PM
2, Pre and post workout on days I don't work. On days I work I take in 3. Only one scoop in each shake. I'm cutting.
06-19-2008, 05:52 PM
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.

nil, tuna, chicken and beef, also supplement extra protein intake with organic spirulina which is about 60% protein

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.

Depends on the schedule, ideally no more than 2. But sometimes it just doesn't work out that way.
06-23-2008, 12:07 PM
2 a day.
1 before workout, 1 after.
07-02-2008, 09:38 PM
At least 3 a day.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.-Psalm 18:2

I have a shake with breakfast, shake after work(counts as my pre workout shake) and a psot workout shake. I used to take one before bed also, but I wont be no more.
01-02-2009, 06:46 PM
One as soon as I wake up, and one pre-workout.
However, I may down a cassein shake prior to bed if I don't want to down the cottage cheese. But my average is 2.
01-03-2009, 04:23 AM
1 on off days
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.
01-11-2009, 05:15 PM
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.
