    How much protein are you getting?

    How much are you getting from foods and how much from supplements? I was getting about 75+ from shakes. 25 in the morning and 50 late afternoon. Always have chicken for lunch.

    200-210 grams of protein per day, all real food, no shakes

    I take the pro powder at most once a day, in the postworkout (isolated ptroteins) if I don't have time (generally I have to run to work) or if I have not prepared anything before or I don't want to wait to cook something.

    in total I am above 200 gr
    I try to take at least 40 grams of pro with each meal

    I try to get at least my body weight in protein from real food. Then my shakes on top of that is just a bonus.

    I'm wondering if the shakes are why I feel my food is digesting slow. I feel like I'm constantly full but I keep eating. Gives ya bad indigestion....

    I say yes thats exactly why your having issues with digestion and feel like crap. You're using a supplement for roughly 70% of your protein intake, this is a terrible food plan.

    this is a generic model for a proper daily food plan
    meat with eggs and a fat for bk, fruit
    meat with fat and nuts
    work out
    shake with fruit
    meat with veggies, carbs, fruit
    meat with veggies, (carbs optional) for dinner, fruit

    optional: eat a healthy snack between a couple or all of the meals to keep the macros where they should be

    enjoy a good healthy stomach with strong digestion and no bloat or indigestion

    I'm getting about 25 from eggs in the AM. 70 from chicken for mid morning and lunch. 20 from peanut butter in afternoon and 30 or so evening meal. Then the 75 from 3 protein shakes. Maybe too much for my 165lb frame?

    The food you're eating is probably enough protein, you could probably drop the shakes besides a PWO shake. I don't feel they geniunely contribute much to actual absorbed protein for the day, but they make guys feel like they are. More important is carb and overall calorie intake from real food. Not a huge huge Rich Piana fan but he was right about the importance of "real fk'n food" because shakes don't really help much.

    Stick to two shakes max. One post workout and the other in between other meals.

    300-350 grams right now. About 25 grams is from a shake on workout days. 0 on non workout days.

    I found that the Fairlife nutrition plan shakes digest well. They just are ultra filtered milk and hard to beat the 30g of protein from just concentrated milk. I like their regular milk too.

    I get in around 300 a day. 100 from shakes, 100 from liquid egg whites, 100 from chicken breast or fish. Iím cutting right now. I honestly have never noticed a difference getting protein from a liquid source or whole food source. Tbh honest Iíll have some days where Iíll have either more egg whites or shakes as opposed to any meat. With doing this I notice my digestion is better and stomach stays flatter. My main concern is digestibility.

    Why? Is there something magical about 2? Why not 1 or 3?

    I like isolate with minimal carbs and no fats. In fact my favorite protein in the clear iso protein
