My second meal of the day, (12pm), is one scoop of ON Whey and water.
Then after my workout, (8-9pm), I have two scoops of ON Whey with pb and a little milk.
I just picked ON Casein and want to take one scoop with water around my (11pm) bedtime.
That's 96g of protein from shakes throughout the day. Seems like a lot...

Why would you want to supplement so much of your protein with powder? I use whey as an additive to my morning oatmeal or to help me hit my macors on some days - especially when bulking (whey,oats and natty pb). Most days I get 200 grams of protein in without supplementing - I use whey to "supplement" my diet to help me hit my macros.Certified Personal Trainer

I'm not sure there's a "right" answer...it's all personal preference. I have one protein shake every day as a quick breakfast on the drive to work. On gym days I usually have one after I work out, again, on the way to work. If I have a day off work, I usually don't have protein shakes because I have plenty of time to make real food. They're a matter of convenience for me, not a staple that I must have X number of each day.

It's just a matter of hitting your macros for the day. Though you'll have make up the other macros with higher fat/carb whole foods. They're especially handy when you're busy or on a cut.

I take about 4 protein shakes a day. I also eat 3 regular meals a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and i usually eat a banana or apple with each protein shake.
Its just too tough to fill in my macros in 3 healthy, low carb, low fat meals.“Israel in the Middle East is fighting on behalf of the free world,” declared Mosab Hassan Yousef, the outspoken son of Hamas leader Hassan Yousef.
