    what kind of protein drinks do you drink? if you buy them at the store, what brands do you recommend? if you make a homemade drink, what do you put in it? and how often do you drink it? i assume a drink after every workout.

    It depends how much you use. Some people only take 1 scoop a day, others take like 8 scoops a day so it can last anywhere from a week or two, to a month+

    Champion Nutrition's Pure Whey Protein Stack is what I use.

    Their Banana Scream flavor is excellent.

    ON double chocolate FTMFW!!!

    I only drink protein post workout, and it's two scoops protein, 15g dextrose, 15g maltodextrin, a pinch of soduim, and a lot of water....


    Other than that, I rely on my diet to keep me where I want.

    except the body responds to large, less frequent bursts of protein better than a slow constant influx of protein...in the second case protein synthesis returns to baseline after 2 hrs even if you keep administering more amino acids

    I use ON ProComplex Protein powder in chocolate. It tastes pretty good, but I'm bored of chocolate. Two scoops a days lasts me about 3 weeks or so I think.
