    i've just started taking whey protein and was thinking of taking 2 protein shakes a day, will it be too much for a beginner? and also can someone tell me the best time to take the shake for max results...?!?!

    Not too much.. And the best times to take it are as soon as you wake up and immediately after your workout...
    Do whatever you want all the time.

    Up to three a day is fine.

    One just before workout, One during workout whilst your having a quick breather, and one just after completing your workout.

    Not really, but you probably don't really need to have that many. While bulking, you should just shoot for 1-1.2x your bw in protein to be most beneficial, so it seems like just one a day would work because along with the shakes, I'm sure you'll have at least one other protein source whether it's chicken, meat, fish, etc. Then of course you'll get some more protein from your carb sources.

    if your shake has form 20-25 grams of protein a scoop, which most common brands have, then that is for sure not too much. i usually have around 3 scoops a day and many people have more because your supposed to have 1g per pound of lean muscle.

    Yeah, but that's TOTAL protein. Not just protein from shakes.

    I can take a lot, but 8 would be on a fast or something. That would be 160 grams from shakes. I usually do one in the morning, one before bed, one after workout.

    im cutting and my house is full of sugary carbs and junk food, so i just have 1 meal on offdays

    2 meals on workout days i get that extra meal from subway

    so im feeding on protein shakes i get like 4-5 a day..

    also i have ON's vanilla icecream which tastes like CRAP!! so i wanna finish the tub as fast as possible.


    to OP : protein is protein, just like the ones in ur meat...so will u die from eating meat 2 times a day? and best times are when u wake up, and after workout.
