View Full Version : protein shakes maximum dose
10-06-2007, 12:08 PM
I've just read the back of my protein shake tub and it says take twice a day and not to exceed the stated dose.
That's a only a measly 50g of protein.
What possible reason could there be to restrict my intake of protein shakes to 2 per day?

it's probably the recommended amount and they're basing their calculations on you getting other sources of protein.

Thats because the rec daily intake of protein for an adult male is only 55g.

Probably just a marketing thing. If they put that then people think it is more like a drug since it has a dose. That is like saying you can only eat a 6oz steak. Protein is just food. Think of it as powdered chicken.
