First thing when i wake up because you haven't had any protein since bedtime, and then one after my workout.

Of course the majority of ur protein should come from real food rather than shakes. But most ppl would have trouble eating enough regular food 2 get as much protein as a BBer needs, so shakes have their place.

I drink protein shakes at all different times of the day. Exactly what kind & when depends on how my diet plan 4 that day is shaping up & the flavor I feel like having.

Generally I use whey or egg protein in the morning, pre & post workout, if I have a shake late in the day, its casein.

Neither. I drink a protein shake before my workout, and another after my workout.

anytime u want...downing a protein shake is pretty much never a bad thing if u need extra calories/protein to reach ur daily needs.

my favorite bulking meal: the 500 calorie shake and english muffin grilled cheese:

1 scoop american whey banana
1 scoop ON 100% casein
1 cup skim milk
1 packet sugar free oatmeal
1 banana

1 light style whole grain english muffin with 3 slices of Smart Beat cheese

totals about 700 calories. i eat/drink it slowly because of the high calories and high amount of protein.
