How many servings of protein do you take PER shake?( example= if 1 serving is equal to 1 scoop, do you take more than 1 scoop per shake) And how many shakes do you make over the whole day? Just curious to see what Guys/Gals do. THANKS!!!!

I try to get at least 35 grams per meal. I use them to supplement and eat other food with them, so usually one scoop, in the 25 gram range, with milk and the other food ends up providing around 40 or so. I probably take 3 to 3 1/2 scoops a day, max. I like the Dymatize elite--great taste and a pretty good amino profile.

1 scoop per shake, unless post workout then 1.5-2 scoops. I consume about 1-3 shakes per day depending on if I work that day.

If you are having problems try switching brands or using isolate.

I think metamucil (spelled wrong) helps with gas from PWO shakes.
At least it does for me.
