    Protein powder vs Real food?

    Should I keep drinking my protein shakes after weight training or should I eat real food? I still eat real food throughout the day but will protein powder do me any bad?

    What if I eat 3 real meals a day and 3 protein shakes... any harm?

    You should try to do with as few shakes as you can and still get your protein for the day. Not to mention the protein from real food has a higher thermic affect so it lends itself to being more helpful for losing/maintaining weight.

    Be sure to take a good multi as well.

    Real food > whey protein. You should supplement your diet with protein shakes and not substitute a protein shake for a real meal. For example, if you are short a couple dozen grams of protein then have a shake. Or have a shake post workout but dont skip "breakfast" and have a shake. Most whey protein powder is absorbed quickly and you'll be hungry a lot sooner than if you had eaten a real meal.

    I copy what everyone else already said. I used to have 5-6 protein shakes a day because it was quicker and I have a busy schedule. Consuming too much whey is harder on your kidneys than protein from food. I switched to only 2 protein shakes a day and I saw a huge difference in the way I felt. Less bloating, and I didn't get hungry as fast either.
    The hardness of this world slowly grinds your dreams away.

    What once seemed black and white turns to so many shades of gray.

    Work out your macros and eat your real food. There is no real subsitute for real food. Protein powder is a supplement to your diet and not a replacement. It just helps you hit your daily protein needs, if you are a busy person, either way id supplement regardless, whey protein is a protein that is quickly abosrbed by your body. After your workout your body is in need of glucose more than protein. So take your protein shake and intake some carbs

    Protein shakes are called a supplement for a reason, it just helps you along the way. Like if you ate chicken all day for protein, and only got 100g worth, then 2 servings (240 cals/48g) of optimum would get you to around 148, if thats what your goal was.

    Also if you buy the protein, get it from bb.com its much cheaper.

    I get this bit also always wondered why everyone says food is sooo much better than powder. If the powder helps u hit your daily total then it works rights? If it works then isn't it closer to the same as we think? I'm not saying drink 6-7 shakes for your 200 grams but what about 3 meals and 3 shakes? I know people who do that natural guys that look damn good. They said they sometimes eat 6 meals s day for 4-6 weeks but didn't get bigger or more muscular so their results were the same

    Strong bump. But the reason people prefer real food is for satiation, it's a big issue for a lot of people whilst on a cut.
