    remember you talk out of you ass, shut theee fuck up
    If you donít like honest answers from people who have had different experiences than you, why do you bother to post the question?

    Seems like a waste of time

    I use to squat on the free squat rack but now I do smith machine squats and those work just as good for me. The results that I get from replacing some meals with shakes have given me good results but like I said on my next cycle I going to be consuming 6 meals a day getting about 80% of my protein from them and using 2 shakes so I can get the total amount of calories that I need. If the results that I ghet are not any better I will switch back to shakes being the the majority of protein and calorie intake.
    Sounds like a plan. Bottom line is to do what works best for you.

    I think most would agree that protein powders are a great way to *supplement* your diet, not *be* the bulk of your diet... no powdered shake will offer the broad range of nutrients that whole foods can offer...remember, whole foods offer alot more than just protein and carbs.... however, for those needing large amounts of calories and protein, it's difficult to get that from whole foods alone... so the key here is balance... personally, my diet is at least 60% whole foods and the rest supplemented with different types of protein powder (whey primarily for post-workout, casein before bed, egg throughout the day)

    Quad, if you were unable to actually drink shakes, is there any solid protein bar to recommend? I agree that at times shakes are a must. Contest prep is a prime example. Its impossible to eat 500+ grams of protein a day from whole foods. I like your idea of the added fats to slow absorption. DO you use heavy cream or some coolwhip?
    Most protein bars are full of sugar, fat and other fillers that you don't want... some bars may offer 30g protein, but the truth is, they're nothing but a protein-loaded candy bar... if you don't care of the quality of calories you're taking in, then I guess it doesn't matter.... otherwise, be sure to scrutinize what's in the bar.

    Re: Protein shakes as main source of protein.

    For me, shake in the morning, post workout and before bedtime. 144gm protein

    Food intake:
    Breakfast : bagel, oatmeal
    Snack
    Lunch: 2 chicken sandwiches, or 4 jr double cheeseburger (to make 2 burgers, toss the buns from 2 of them)
    Snack
    Snack then head to the gym
    Dinner: salad and some sort of protein, beef, chicken, pork, fish.

    doing this last 3 months have really made me stronger and bigger.. but weight still same, must be replacing the fat w/muscle. Also this is the first time for me repping 315 x 6-7 reps. never before did that.. best was 285 x 8 reps. taking 2 shakes/day. and eating relatively same food, and cycle as well.
