    Should you have a protein shake everyday, even days after training?

    February 18, 2016, 5:28 am

    Hey guys, I am wondering about taking protien shakes everyday of the week. I train Sundays, Thursdays and Tuesdays, but would it be necessary to take a shake every day of the week?
    This one is recommeneded inside of the 30 minutes after post workout: http://www.time4nutrition.co.uk/#!raspberry-ripple-ice-cream/cm3h

    I buy this in my gym, but I consider to buy the bag and have a shake everyday.

    Thanks in advance

    You only really need a protein shake if you can't finish your macros for the day.

    Personally, I can't eat food and keep it down as much as needed to get my macros. Literally... So while I know it's not optimal, I have about 4-5 protein shakes a day. In order to keep myself healthy, I also add Greens to my shakes, and carbs. I take vitimans too. I'm always told you should get the majority of your macros from real food, but for me, just not feasible. 2 cups of rice and a huge chicken breast and 2 cups of veggies per meal..... can't do it man. Can't do it. I feel sick just thinking about it.

    Just use it to fill your Macros if you come up short. I don't usually worry so much about taking one after training unless I train fasted. Some Casein is good before bed so you don't go Catabolic as well. If you're like me and I believe many others, drinking too much protein shakes a day may give you stomach issues too.

    Food and eating is very much a thing to get used to.

    I heard that often and it's mostly over after 14 days of actually eating propperly or a slow phase to get used to.

    But yeah i am certain you know the downsides of this for your body, your digestive system and possibly even your liver.

     

    So i can only advise to eat more real foods.
    Doesn't need to be the huge chicken rice meals, can simply come from caloric dense foods like nuts, bacon & eggs, avocado, even oil, or a good bowl of oats and milk =)

     

    Just saying !

    Ask any of my co-workers they will tell you the most common phrase off my lips the past 6 weeks is "I'm tired of eating!" I don't eat huge portions but about 6 to 7oz at a time and alternate between food and water. I can only say that real food would be the best course however that being said I do drink a post workout shake. Its the fastest way I know to get nutritients and depleted macros back into my body. Then at night before bed, I take AminoX (but only on lifting days).

     

    Having gone thru surgeries for stomach problems you need the real food - shakes can't provide everything you need. Start small and work up to it. Alternate the protiens so you don't get burnt out and green veggies are easy. Just have to plan out your meals ... which can prove hard at first.

     

    Cheats for me - cook veggies in batches and fridge them up ... mix in protein they warm together.

     

    Favorite no cook - lettuce and tuna or chicken wraps

    Ok thanks everyone for the replies, this has really helped me.

     

    I eat a lot of rice, but I think will need to buy more oats, more chicken and more veggies

     

    Thanks guys!
