I went ahead and ordered some protein powder the other day and am now looking for some advice on how to supplement it into my diet/routine. I don't workout a lot, probably 3-4 times a week for about an hour. I'm still relatively new to the gym. I'm not looking for huge gains, I'm trying to cut a bit of fat (6'1", 212, trying to shed about 10-15 pounds of fat / convert it into muscle). My goal with the powder is to use it as a protein supplement to my regular diet. Right now I think I'm probably getting around 100-120g / protein a day with no supplements. From what I understand I should be getting a little bit more than that. Mixing two scoops of powder with a huge glass of milk is probably more calories than I want to consume, I think. Basically I'm just wondering if taking it as a light protein supplement is even worth it. I picked up the Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey for $29.99. Did I make a wise decision or do I really not work out enough to bother taking this?
