Well, have too much will probably make you gain weight :)

And then there's the million dollar question: how much is too much?

Well, post-workout, I usually have 40 grams. I don't know if it's too much or too many, but it's just my personal preference.

too many cals cause weight gain

if you count the cals in your shake and it adds up to what you want you will not gain weight

there is no magic number where fat deposition occurs

when I'm cutting I take over 100g's sometimes

some will say that it reduces insulin sensitivity but this is simply not true

blood glucose levels rise and clear very quickly as muscle is ready to absorb large amounts of sugar

insulin resistance is brought on when blood glucose & insulin levels are high BETWEEN meals

post w/o is not similar to this scenario
