Damn man take it easy that's too much. In order for your body to break down the protein it needs calcium. If you're not getting enough calcium in your diet then it starts taking the calcium from your bones making them very weak. Not to mention the stress you're putting your liver under. Also your body can't digest more than 30 grams of protein at a time so don't bother drinking more than one scoop.

Just eat healthy man. I eat a shit load of tuna, chicken breasts, peanuts, eggs.. Try taking a break from the protein shakes and see if you notice a difference.

I drank a protein shake every day 2 years ago until I injured my shoulder and stopped working out. In 3 months all that I had done pretty much shrunk. I started again in the beginning of last year without any protein shakes and worked out until the end of summer and stopped cuz of school. I just started again in january and I can say that this time around my body did not shrink nearly as much as before. I'd say I shrunk 80% more with the protein shake workout than without.

I take pills from wholefoods that has calcium and I drink a shit load of water with all my protein intake. I never have more than 1 scoop. But your body can take more than 30g of protein depending on who you are. High, weight, body fat, etc...

I was told all this info from 3 guys who are built and work at the gym and work at the max muscle store. So i shut my mouth and listen lol

Even if your body doesn't get use of more than 40g of protein in one sitting it's not like you just crap the rest out. The protein still gets used in the form of calories.

Doesn't happen to me, but that's because the shake is so fuxing thick that it can't sink lol. Can't chug these shakes either, gotta chew that shit.

You need something that digests slow while you sleep. So milk/cottage cheese is perfect for you.

Peanut butter is a better option. But only 1 table spoon from whole foods.
"Peanut butter" really?

Fats will sedate the nervous system which will aide in sleep. They also stabilize blood sugar so you don't end up waking during the night due to nocturnal hypoglycemia which disrupts HGH production, prompts the release of catabolic stress hormone and insulin, & degrades sleep quality and repair.

If you do use peanut butter, make damn sure that you don't have a peanut intolerance (very common) and don't use non organic or non-natural peanut butter due to the presence of hydrogenated oils which are inflammatory, fattening, and disease causing.

Couple things to add. Bobby_Light has given some good advice, others....meh.

BCAA's are digested too slowly to do any good at night. They are best taken pre and/or intra-WO.

Skippy has an all natural peanut butter with honey that is friggin delicious and won't separate. Used Shmuker's for a while but by the time you get to the end of the jar it's like concrete. ON Casein is good stuff, I drink it in milk before bed every night. Sometimes I'll add some cheddar cheese or put some EVOO in the shake.

You don't necessarily want a protein shake with no carbs. Carbs elicit an insulin response, protein (especially casein), not so much. If the is little or no insulin to get the protein to your muscles, you could be wasting it. Of course there are exceptions are some people are insulin-resistant and some are insulin-sensitive.

Cottage cheese is an excellent choice for a bedtime meal. Maybe add a scoop of protein to it.

Saying that your body can only digest 30g, or xxg of protein at one time is the biggest crock of hose caca I've ever heard. Everyone is different. You think guys like Cutler and Greene got to 300 pounds eating 8 meals of only 30g of protein. Methinks not.

Also, if you're _serious_ about bodybuilding, or training, I would put down the Men's Health and pick up Muscular Development, or start reading on some online forums. Most of the times, (even in MD), articles are ghost written and the 'good' advice from that 'pro' is just the ramblings of some fat slob behind a keyboard.

Just a few thoughts while skimming this thread.
