    You still burn calories, so it is fine to use protein. As long as it fits in your daily calorie count and macros, it is perfectly fine to use protein shakes and they will not get stored into fat.

    Re: protein and lifting

    Calories are either excreted, burned or stored. If it's not excreted (poo, pee or sweat) then storage only happens if it's in excess of your needs. A protein shake (perhaps with a little carbs) sounds good following intense cardio should be fine assuming you don't exceed your requirements.

    Re: protein and lifting

    i'm not sure what kind of cardio you are doing. but if you are doing any sort of high intensity cardio you cannot drink protein powder during it or you will get sick

    stick to sipping water, a lot of runners just sip and spit water as you don't want anything in your stomach

    Re: protein and lifting

    Protein is the hardest macronutrient to turn into body fat. If you were to consume a protein shake VS a carb drink like gatorade after your workout, it would be much less likely for the protein shake to be stored as fat.

    I think consuming protein after your workout is a great idea. Very few endurance athletes get enough protein in their daily diet. Any form of working out will put stress on the body so your protein requirements will be higher.

    Re: protein and lifting

    What exactly are you hoping to get out of having a protein shake? It isn't a magic supplement. Just add in a shake if you don't eat enough protein in your diet. It doesn't really matter when you have it but I wouldn't chug it around your cardio time unless you want to puke.
