ive heard that once you start using protein powders you need to keep using them to maintain your size/muscle mass.. so if i stopped using them, ill lose muscle mass?

will this still happen even if i worked out regularly?

Just replace it with REAL food..... say if you take in 40g of protien a day in your powder replace it with a few chicken breasts.....supplements are exactly that supplements to your diet and routine.... NEVER should they be the foundation....


And not to sound rude or anything but it sounds like you don't really understand much about diet and how it relates to weight lifting.... i suggest you start reading some of the WBB articles located on this web board....

Give whoever you heard this from a swift kick in the nuts. Protein powder gives you protein... as long as you keep taking in protein you are fine.

It totally depends if you're injecting it or using some other method. If you're injecting it the withdrawal alone could cost you 20-25 lbs of muscle mass. Definitely taper down if you're coming off to reduce your losses.

Injecting it. Hmmm.

And here I always thought "hot beef injection" was just a line...

Don't listen to these people...everyone knows that protein supplements are infused with massive amounts of steroids to make people gain muscle. If you stop using protein shakes, you will wither away into oblivion.
