Buzz From Protein Shakes

Hey Y’all,

I’m just curious if anyone else gets a buzz (like a caffeine buzz) after slamming a protein shake?

I notice it every time I have one on lifting days while at work at about 4:30 or so. It’s usually just two scoops of ON Gold Standard in 16 oz. water chugged.

I’m not really sure what would cause it, I’d be interested to hear others results.

I used to get a big energy burst from shakes, but after a while I just got used to it.

No. But I could take 2 Spike, drink a pot of coffee, and snort 3 lines of crack and then take a 6 hour nap so I might not be the best person to ask.

Never have, I did get a buzz from pre workout Spike and the gaspari stuff though. Your body will prob get used to it over time.

Hmm…never. But I guess that’s not necesarily a bad thing.

is it chocolate flavored? the cocoa has natural stimulants in it. i get this too.

it’s most likely mental and the fact your taking in calories around 4.30…most people begin too tire around 3-4

hmmm…thats cool.

you’ve never taken drugs have you? a buzz from protein shakes??? if I got that my recreational life would be much easier and cheaper.

I wish. Meth is way cheaper than whey. Every now and then I splurge and do a few lines of whey, but the wife usually has to stand on the street corner for the next few weeks, if you know what I mean.
