    I've read that if you're lifting, you need between 1.0-1.5 grams of protein per pound of your weight. My routine is mostly high impact cardio and I do weight training 2-3 x's a week. Are the daily protein requirement's the same for a routine that's mostly cardio?

    Also, can you guys recommend a good whey protein shake mix and protein bar? I'm using EAS Whey Protein + Met-Rx protein bars (27g protein/bar), but I'd like to know if there's better ones out there.

    Bout the same.

    Protein powders- EAS is decent, Optimum, Biotest (but they're 'spensive) I'm using Dave Draper's Bomber Blend atm. Protein bars I've given up on; they're over-priced and over-processed, you're better off throwing some oatmeal and protein powder together in a tupperware. I also make my own with peanut butter, honey and protein powder :yum:
