    is it ok to have protein on its own?

    Primal Fuel
    Say after a workout? I like to have a whey shake (i know its not the best choice)
    I read somewhere that it wasnt good to have protein just on its own. Any truth to this? And if so what is the science behind it?

    I really can't think of any reason why not to have a whey shake after a workout

    Grok just had protein after he ran his prey down. Worked for him. I believe mono dieting has lots of merit.
    And it's natural.

    If you mix it with anything but water your not really getting only protein. Personally I like my shake with unsweetened almond milk but have used just water while at work - not nearly as tasty.

    And grok had fat with his protein after he ran it down ;D

    I don't think so. Hard to find a prey that's fat-free.

    Zone diet on and off for several years....worked, but too much focus on exact meal composition
    Primal since July 2010...skinniest I've ever been and the least stressed about food

    +1. Regardless of what you want to think about dairy, whey has considerably less fat than even tuna and chicken breast (no skin). Not natural.

    Well, a whey shake is pretty convenient after a workout. You just pour water in it and drink
