I am going to get ce2 its a pro-creatine. along with this can i have 2 protien shakes a day ? plus some protien bars (2 a day).
I understand I can only process 30g an hour of protien.

I am a little unclear of what ce-2 , its a pro creatine, whats pro creatine ?

that's not necessarily too much protein, but that will get expensive real quick. try getting your protein from other sources than just whey (bars/shakes). go for chicken, turkey, tuna, lean meats, eggs, etc. its a better bet and that way you wont get too tired of whey.

actually sounds a little low for protein - but i dont have the numbers to make a complete judgment.

again - better to eat what you need then find it in a processed bar or drink - although there is a time and a place for both.

you should eat your body weight in protein in grams so if you weigh 200lbs then - 200g protein daily.

You should eat until you vomit and then back it off a little.

When you stop gaining, eat til you puke, and then eat the puke. Then eat more.

As for processing protein, eat when you want because your muscles don't give a **** what time it is.

im pretty sure that 30g at a time stuff is a load of bull. eat as much of it whenever u want to. just make sure you get to the amount u need 1-1.5g*BW. there have been studies done, and even with bodybuilders taking in 400g+ protein a day over long periods of time, there have not been consequences to their health.

More than 30g per hour may result in protein being converted to glucose, especially if it is a fast digesting protein like whey.

Although there is no study, per say, proving this, I know some people who are monitoring blood sugar who claim that whey protein shakes raise their blood sugar if they take more than 1 1/2 scoops.

Assuming you are getting enough calories, you are probably getting at least 15% from protein not including supplements. So, for example, if you get 2000 calories other than supplements, you are getting at least 75g of protein. Add to that two 30g shakes and you are at least 135g per day which should be plenty if it is consistent.
