I started drinking the Low-Carb Grow! shakes a few weeks ago and feel like I’m already seeing some results. I’m a vegetarian (no fish, either), so almost all of my protein comes from soy products like veggie burgers, soy chix patties, etc. My trainer suggested that I wasn’t getting enough protein (probably 50 g a day at the time), and recommended the T-Nation shakes.
Now I supplement my regular diet with three shakes a day, two scoops each (40g a shake). So I’m closer to 200g of protein a day. I was discussing this with my trainer this week, and he wondered if three shakes a day were too much. So my question is simple- is he correct? Are three Grow! shakes a day too much, and if so, where do I draw the line?
I weigh about 180, and I’m training 5-6 days a week, both strength and cardio, if that matters.
