I currently take a protein shake every day (post-workout for 4 of the days and with my first meal on my 3 off days). I bought a new bag of protein shake a few months ago, but I realized that it was different than my first one.
My first bag was EAS 100% Whey (23 g). My second bag was EAS Premium Protein (27 g). Unfortunately I can't post links, but if you google them you can see what they look like.
The first bag was 100% whey, but the second bag has a "Premium Three-Stage Blend." Unfortunately, I don't have the bag with me, but I think around 20-40% of it was Whey, with the rest being something else, such as soy protein or milk protein (these are just guesses, I'm not entirely sure).
I've read that whey protein is only effective post-workout, but I take 3 protein shakes a week where I don't work out (I'm a vegetarian, so I need the extra protein to supplement my diet). So basically, considering that I take protein shakes every day (and I only work out 4 of those days), is the 2nd bag of protein better for me or should I go back to the protein shake that is 100% whey? Or should I switch to another type of protein entirely? (I've read stuff about Myoplex Original but I'm not sure what that is)
Thanks in advance for any help.
