    I take Muscle Milk and Whey Protein. I also take Green tea extract, fish oil, multi vitamin, and Calcium.

    I take the whey protein 2 scoops with water every morning with breakfast along with the pills.

    Then 15 mins before I work out I take a pre made Muscle milk container.

    Is this the right time to take the protein? I don't think I really need more protein intake because my diet alone with supplements makes a lot of protein.

    Should I move the whey protein I take for breakfast to after I work out?

    Whey in the morning AND after you workout.

    If you have to limit yourself to just one of those times, after you workout is by far the most vital.

    I'm not sure about the carb content of the muscle milk but carbs should be saved 'till post workout unless you are completely dragging. Plus, how on earth can you drink a shake then work out, if I eat anything 45 min before I :barf:

    nothing wrong with carbs preworkout since you're body needs energy when lifting afterall. I have whey & gatorade about a half hour before I work out. Not a big one mind you, 1 scoop of each. guess some people can handle it and some can't. :dunno:


    If you're only going to have one shake around your workout have it after. if you can afford it, have a pre and a post
