    I keep track of how much I eat and I dont really need them at all unless I didnt get enough protein or calories that day.

    "servings," guys? grams of protein per shake.. how many shakes.. servings doesn't tell us anything.. most of us use different brands, so this will vary.

    I do 2-3 'shakes' per day -- consisting of 3 scoops (41g) of protein, 3g glutamine and 2.5g betaine.

    so sometimes I supplement 82g, sometimes 123 ..just depends how much protein i've gotten in from real food.

    eh, overkill, bro.. i'm guessing you eat, too? 300-350g of protein is a bit much..200-250 would probably suit you just as well.

    2 a day. Anymore than that seems like too much.

    Once a day. Sometimes I'll have two on a workout day, but I try to get most of my protein from solid foods.

    3 to 4 when getting bigger, 1 of which is something like cytogainer.

    I was 165lbs 5 years ago. I am now 275lbs.

    I'm CONSTANTLY on the go, as my new sales territory is a gigantic area - so I drink shakes a LOT..

    SO, typically 4 shakes a day.. at least half of my protein intake is from shakes, both whey and casein..

    Mid-morning and mid-afternoon meal is usually shakes and something else.. tuna or granola or something..

    I don't know how you can get 4 shakes in! Most shakes I take require like 2-4 scoops of whey. Not only that but I add way more than just water or skim milk. Most of my shakes reach over 48oz. 2 a day is my limit. Anymore than that and I will most likely throw up.

    2-3 servings a day, bulking and cutting. I change my diet but drink the same amount of shakes a day.
