    Please also note that I never, EVER went from zero shakes to 8 shakes per day... I gradually increased my intake and my body can handle pretty much any amount of whey that I throw at it. This applies to oats as well... increase gradually or results could be... messy
    Thanks for the response, I know that, I usually do 3-4 a day. I need to eat whole foods as well, but hey it works for you so keep it up.

    Been there myself with that many shakes but my calories were never that high. You have to do what you have to do. Keep up the great work!

    boy im sure glad that i am not the only one living off drinks! for me its a time thing. It is far easier to chug a shake than to put together a meal. I do try to eat chicken once a day though.

    I drink three shakes per day (2 servings each one) but then again I'm a vegetarian so I have to supplement protein more than the average person.

    2 per day on w/o days. So 5 days a week. Usually 1 post w/o and pre-bed. Otherwise on offdays, if I remember, I go 1 pre-bed with Max Milk now. Gonna go back to ON though or WPI perhaps.

    I'm on the hunt for a good whey that doesnt give me uber farts. So until then no proteins shakes for me, I just scarf down as many cartons of eggwhites as humanly possible

    No, ON contains dairy source too.

    Go with:

    GF PRO
    I PRO
    Syntrax Nectar.

    I bet you there will be no gas!

    not going to make much difference man.

    GF-Pro is the best on that list IMO. I-pro is great stuff too, great tasting also.


    btw, take 4 a day. pre/post, wake/bed.
