I weigh 148 lbs and I take in 247g of protein a day. Is it necessary for me to take in protein from supplements too?

Only if you feel you need more protein, at which a shake may be more convenient. If convenience isn't an issue...eat more.

No, If you get enough protien from solid foods (as it looks like you do) then you don't need to take a protien supplement. Only thing I can think of is the type of post workout protien you get. It should be fast acting. :)

They supplement your diet with high quality protein whenever you don't have the time to prepare something to eat or that you want a special protein like whey to achieve faster recovery.
