I get asked this a lot.
First up ... do you need a protein shake?
See my previous blog about Exercise Calories as this goes into how hard you are training.
- if you are training 'moderate' or 'hard' then this has a place in your diet.
I drink 1/2 during training and the rest straight after.
- I use vegan protein powder as I am allergic to cow milk
- but whey is fine of you are okay with dairy
- 14 to 20g
- I use this simple carbohydrate if I am doing high intensity sections in my training (which I nearly always am)
- everyday, I even have this on non training days
- follow directions of the one you use
- I use the one pictured after a great deal of research on quantities of elements included in the product.
