While I'm at it though, I'll tell you
a) don't worry about when you take your shakes, just focus on the long run / daily intake.
b) I'd recommend preparing your shake right before you take it in most cases, whey can go bad (while an hour is nothing, better safe than sorry)
c) how many ounces makes it easier for you to consume the shake.
you're 5'6" 125lbs, so I think the general consensus of the forum would be to eat more. (same advice I should be heeding myself... hah)

Also, you're making a big mistake by avoiding fats. Don't overload on them, but you should be getting a sufficient amount. You may want to purchase a good fish oil (NOW and Controlled Labs are two solid choices off the top of my head) which would add a small amount of healthy fats to your daily intake.
Maybe try adding a serving of meat with your fruits? (meat -> fruit as dessert)
I think he meant did you want a mixed blend, or straight whey. Protein is protein so it wouldn't matter what you choose, just look closely at the label for the nutrition facts. Most people here would advocate for you to choose whatever tastes the best, for good reason. I would recommend you figure out your budget, then work from there.Team VPX Sports

Here's what I say. Get 1g of protein per bodyweight. Since you're 143 pounds, that means you need 143g of protein a day, I would say maybe 1 scoop since it's easy to get that much protein through foodhttp://www.youtube.com/user/Celonarb My YouTube Channel, please subscribe <3
