How Much Whey?

I was wondering how much whey protein i should be taking exactly?? I weight 210. I began taking 1 scoop with 4 ounces of milk in the morning, one before work out, and one after work out. is that okay??? I also take one scoop of creatine after work out with 6 ounces of water.is this the right way to take creatine also or not??

I am taking Six Star Muscle Fule, creatine and whey protein.

please some one help out a newbie

Well the simple answer is it all depends…

How much protein are you getting from the rest of your diet. What are your goals? Generally when cutting you want a 1gram of protein/1lb of body weight…but when building you want 1.5-2grams/.

So like I said…it all depends on what yoru goals are and what your diet is.

Yup diet dependent its essentially targeted quality food. Some days like today im busy as hell and have a ton of whey its fast and easy some days less. fill your needs


I’m going to echo Phill, when I’m busy I end up using more whey then when I’m not.

On an ideal day I use some form of powdered protein 2-3 times a day.

Post workout, midday shake, and pre-bed shake.
