I like to have it in the morning if I am going to be doing something strenous and if I don't plan on eating for awhile. My protein shakes tend to satisfy my hunger for a minimum of 6 hours. I only have a shake like once or maybe twice a week max, so that is how I save on the cost.

People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
I had been drinking protein smoothies up until November of last year. I finally gave them up, as I have read too many testimonials that they are not necessary. That has been the case for me too. I no longer track protein, yet I still maintain muscle mass. I don't believe our bodies require near the amount of protein that has been suggested.
