View Full Version : When to quit protein shakes

I am following the contest prep guide that came with Mitotropin. It suggests to eliminate all protain shakes for the last 14 days prior to show time. I use Torrent post workout and Casein prior to bed. I would like to know when others choose to cut off the protein shakes prior to comp.

Unless you are having issues with being hungry, then it is probably fine to use them all the way up to the show. Many people around here suggest cutting dairy during the last few days, or during peak week - you could cut them out then just to be safe.

My primary protein source during peak week is whey just because of convenience. There is nothing wrong with keeping it in your diet unless you have a lactose intolerance.
