I started to take a whey protein drink once or twice a day. It has really helped me. My bones and body use to ack so bad. Don't know why but it was awful and still is if I skip one. I use a choc one and put in a tbsp of sun butter. Yumm!

I use the Vanilla Whey Protein in a smoothie with Frozen berries, a banana, spinach, and V8 Fusion juice. I replace 1 meal with it (if I'm not strength training) or add it as a Post Workout Snack (if I am). I have the recipe listed in Spark Recipes as Super Power Protein Smoothie (if you'd like to try it).

I drink whey shakes once in a while.... I think they're great when I'm having a craving for something sweet and filling. I like the chocolate flavor mixed with a cup of nonfat milk and 1 tsp splenda... And wow what a great dessert....

How long do you have to keep that up? When do you get to start eating a little bit of real food again? I can't imagine that just drinking the shakes will keep you satisfied for very long. Anyway, I'm just curious.

There was much rejoicing!

I drink whey protein shakes made from low- or non- fat milk and half a cup of vanilla yogurt, or the milk with fruit. Either way I have the shake after I do a workout. I usually count it as 1 glass of liquid.

I do only after extended strength or cardio workouts and I do count it toward my daily water intake.

Thanks, everyone. I will continue to not count it toward water intake and if it does happen to react within my digestive system as extra water, what an awesome bonus!

I don't, but my husband does. I have always just thought that it was a waste of money and wasn't really doing him any good but I just kept my mouth shut about that opinion. (Sometimes I take heed of the old "if you can't say anything good then don't say anything at all" thing...) My husband has told me that he believes the shakes help him to build muscle but he has never said anything about reducing soreness. So while I'm still not likely to start drinking them myself, thank you for giving me that insight into a benefit the shakes may be giving him and of which I was just never aware before.

There was much rejoicing!

I do. I drink a whey shake after every strength training workout and after any vigorous cardio. It certainly helps keep the soreness down the next day and does help me build muscle. But here is my question: when you put, say, 16oz of water into your shaker with the powder, do you count that toward your water intake? I don't because I feel like I should be drinking a LOT more water than I do (currently around 10 glasses a day) and I just think of it as a bonus. But am I wrong in thinking of it as a possible 11th and 12th glass? What do you count as water in general? I count any herbal, decaf, unsweetened tea (drink lots of this), and Crystal Light. Not much else besides, well, water. Thanks for the advice!
