View Full Version : Would it be "okay" to eat protein every hour?

Instead of eating big amounts of protein, in a sitting, I was thinking of getting some protein in at the top of every waking hour.

Would that be a problem or would it be unnecessary?

As long as it fits in your macros and your getting a large portion of protein post workouts, you should be good.

Every hour will probably get annoying. I have a shake about every 2 hours at work, in addition to my normal food intake, because anything more than 25g of protein at a time tends to give me discomfort.

So how much should I be getting post workout?

And once every two hours wouldn't be a problem? I could swing that.

Generally post workout you want to have more than any other meal.

Once every hour would be fine. Once every two hours would be fine. Once every three or four is fine too. As long as you meet your daily minimum, it doesn't matter much how often you get your protein in. It's very difficult to be eating every hour and still have a life however. I think every 2-3 hours is ideal for most people.

All good replies. You can do it if you want to but it's not necessary.

10x a day or 3x a day probably doesn't make a difference. Just hit your daily macros. If you want to make it more complicated then needed, go for it.

Ok, probably. The most effective way, not in a long shot.

I'm willing to bet your diet is no where near good enough for you to be worried about eating every hour.
