    How fast do you go thru 5lbs of WHEY?

    Seems like i've been getting _atleast_ 4 sccops in a day. Therefore I went thru my Myoplex 5lb bag in a bout a month!

    Just seeing how everyone else on here does it!

    I'm currently using 4-5 scoops of protein a day. 1-2 scoops whey during the day, 1-2 scoops whey PWO, and 1 scoop casein before bed.

    It gets pricey but if you shop around online and buy in bulk you can keep it around $0.50-$0.60 per scoop (you can even get Nitrean that cheap if you do the multi-unit discount and buy when they have a 15% sale on). I end up spending around $2-$3 a day / $14-$21 a week / $60-$90 a month / $730-$1095 a year depending how much I'm paying for my protein and if I use 4 or 5 scoops.

    The key is to look at the shakes as food. When I've helped friends get started with a routine I always try to stress how important diet is and how shakes can be a healthy, convenient way to get some extra protein and calories in their diet. They always complain about how much protein costs. I usually ask them would you feel like its a waste to buy a candy bar, a bag of chips, or a soda for a snack once a day for $1-$2. Obviously their answer is no. So I just tell them next time they want a candy bar or a soda just drink a shake instead. They end up saving money and they replace unhealthy calories with healthy calories as well as boosting their daily protein intake.
