    Protein shakes...stop using them and loose muscle?

    Hey everyone,

    This may be a noob question but here we go...

    I've just started on whey protein shakes to get my muscle back after a period of illness last year and a break from lifting. I got to seeing some improvements on definition before I had to stop.

    Started again two weeks ago and seem to have some size improvements already but my question is if I stop the shakes and can't get the protein via dietary means will I loose the muscle or so long as I keep lifting i'll maintain it?

    i'm doing the 5x5 program on compound lifts.

    Cheers

    Logic dictates that if you keep lifting with sufficient intensity to break down muscle tissue and do not eat enough protein to repair the damage being done, that yes you will lose some muscle mass.

    While your body can break down protein to create energy, I do not believe the reverse is true: your body cannot create amino acids and thus protein out of carbohydrates or fats.

    ^^^^This.

    Protein is the only macro source your body can use to build/maintain muscle tissue. If you're consistently deficient in your protein intake, you'll lose muscle over time, as well as your overall health.

    As has been already stated, you can use protein powder, or you can use regular food to meet your daily requirements, regular food being the preferred source.
    No brain, no gain.

    You can't out-train bad nutrition.

    I meant solid food. Not a real fan of shakes. I know they can be good, but as an extra, not a replacement.

    Thanks man....to me it's all the same. food is food.

    I drink two shakes a day for a quick, high quality 120 grams of protein and about 800 cals.

    What i do is put 50 grams of IDS dutch chocolate,

    a whole egg,

    a (small) squirt of Hersheys dark chocolate syrup about a tablespoon,

    some crushed ice,

    8 0z 1% milk.....Blend it up for a few minutes and BOOM, delicious.

    I don't have time to cook and prepare actual meals every time i eat....who does ?

    Think I'll make one right now.....they are yummy

    ^^^^^Great explanation.
    How can you visualize the training of a muscle if you don't know its structure?

    Actually those shakes sound great! The egg and milk, very straightforward, no nonsense powders and pills. Very good.

    Yes, I'll look good again soon enough. I'll be posting a progress pic soon. Thanks.

    EDIT: You looked damn good yourself a while back

    Sounds tasty. I used to use the Hershey's liquid but the extra sugar bothered me. I switched to 100% cocoa powder. It tastes better (less sweet) and has 3g carbs, 2g fibre, 1gram fat and 1g protein per tbsp. I use about 1/2 tbsp. I know a small squirt of the liquid doesnt add that much sugar but switching was win-win.

    Anyhow, back on topic..

    I will too. I haven't had a shake in 25 years (admittedly when I did drink them they were honest to goodness like Groink's, not these super booster powder things for sale everywhere). I like the simplicity. See if it works. I have a bit of a lactose intolerance but I can handle smallish amounts of skim.

    I don't want turn this into a shake recipe thread but given my heavy reliance on shakes due to my work schedule I'll share my favorite one that I drink twice a day and NEVER get sick of. I'm picky about taste so I've tried all kinds in the past and I always got sick of them until I came up with this.

    200 ml 2% milk
    Half a frozen banana. (I pre-peel 10-12 bananas, chop them in 2 inch chunks and freeze them.)
    One LARGE scoop of Natural peanut butter. (I keep it in the fridge so it's semi solid and cold)
    1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
    1 or 2 scoops Iso Sensation Cafe Brazil protein powder. (This part is key to the good taste)

    I hand blend this up into a thick milkshake like consistency. It's like eating desert twice a day.

    a whole egg,

    a (small) squirt of Hersheys dark chocolate syrup about a tablespoon,

    some crushed ice,

    8 0z 1% milk.....Blend it up for a few minutes and BOOM, delicious.
