    I have a protein shake every day in addition to a balanced diet. I have it roughly the same time I would as if I needed it post workout. My shake is 16 oz of whole milk with a scoop of milk protein isolate.

    Your off days are the days your muscles are recovering from being torn down on the days you train and will need to be fed to make the best use of your recovery time. Rest and food are crucial for continuing steady gains.

    I just like to make sure I have a constant source of good protein every day, workout or not.

    imo

    When I first started with KBs...about 1 yr ago..I was having 1 protein shake after a practice session...but that was when my goal was for increasing muscle...I have since revised my goal to losing body fat .. I am just a wee bit tubby..and have stopped the protein shakes..and have found that I have leaned out quite a bit..and have gotten stronger..even without the extra protein...I ensure that I eat meals which have enough protein to sustain me...while I was having the protein shakes I was gaining mass ..but still retaining fat which I did not like at all. Once I am satisfied with my new leaness..I will probably go back to having my 1 shake a day ..and see how that goes...Dennis

    I was using skim milk....but when I decided to make leaness my primary concern...I also cut calorie intake in other areas as well as the 1 a day shakes...I think protein shakes are great for muscle growth and strength...but not the only way to take in protein...still have hard boiled eggs, salmon, beef and chicken...along with Healthy Choice meals and soups...I just got tired of seeing that donut around my navel...the last pocket of fat on my mid section....hopefully will be gone by the end of summer...Dennis

    I was able to lose fat pretty well and still had a whole milk based protein shake every day. When I cut body fat I usually try to keep my diet based around more protein and fat than carbs and just go by overall calorie deficit to move down.

    To me it is important when cutting fat to keep a good supply of protein coming in to feed your muscles. Shakes aren't the only way to do it, but it is a pretty failsafe way to ensure your protein is quality.

    Only that water is the no calorie way to mix with whey as opposed to milk. Switching to water assists in getting the calorie deficit needed for fat loss.

    No whey powder for me. It's either hemp protein, which is superior to whey protein, or maca powder mixed in with a smoothie. Oh, and since both are from plant sources you can take them as much as you like. Although, with Maca, there are limits that should be observed because it's an adaptogen and stimulates the libido as well. So, when there are quality sources from nature for protein why go to a secondary source?
