    how many scoops of protein in tuna? :o


    EDIT:

    workout days ~ 6 (2 for breakfast, 1.5 before, 2.5 after workout)

    off days ~ 4 (2 for breakfast, 2 mid afternoon)

    and depending my meal based protein intake for the day, those numbers can vary

    3 scoops on workout days
    1 scoop on non-workout days

    Sometimes I'll do 3 scoops every day, just depends when I get sick of my usual AW shake.

    Is this pure whey protein?

    So one scoop would proberbly be roughly 25-30g?

    Is whey protein somehow better then protein found on other foods? Like fish. I get well over 200g from my diet without the use of whey, would it be useful to begin to supplement it? :o

    One scoop of ON whey is 24 grams, its a easy way to get in extra protein while keeping the calories, carbs, fat, down. I try to shoot for 285-300 grams. So I bring in about 200 from food, and 100 from whey.

    I take about 4-5 a day. 2 in the morning ( 48 grams) , 2 1/2 after my workout (60 grams).

    See, i like those things, you need them to bulk. :o

    There is some whey powders designed to put on size, im not sure how they mix them, but there mixed with lots of carbs. The only thing is they cost lots of money, plus you need to use so much of it in every mix ($50 would get you like 13 serves, versus 40 serves using whey powder). It just gets too much money imo.
