I have been told that is ok! Everyone here seem to get slightly different info but generally if you stay vigilant to your calories, Protein and Fluid intake-- it's all good!

Protein is a muscle builder. As you lose weight, you want to maintain muscle mass while losing the fat. What you have there is typically what bodybuilders drink. That's a lot of calories. Personally, I would drink it. I have nice muscle definition(under my fat, lol) from my bodybuilding days that I have been able to maintain through Vitamin supplementation(Branch chained amino acids and CLA/ALA/GLA) and protein consumption. As I am losing weight, I am still maintaining that definition. Consider this: Calories in/Calories out. If you're diet is supposed to be roughly 1000 calories per day(which is crazy low) and you lift weights and do aerobic exercise, depending on the activity, you're going to lose weight. We're supposed to consume anywhere from 1600-2000 calories a day( a healthy person, that has 60 minutes of aerobic activity and is at their goal weight). 1200 calories is still a loss, from average. I know I'm rambling...;)

Bottom line: If your goal is 1000 calories for a loss and you consume 1400 calories then you must find an activity where you burn 400 calories. spinning for 1hr, depending on intensity, would do it. Lifting weights will rev up your fat burning machine and keep it running throughout the day. as long as your active and your caloric intake isn't out of control, you should be fine.

Is it to much calories 280 but 60 g Protein ? I thought it was ok but I'm new ?? Help

140 calories for 30g of Protein is okay. You should split it up into two servings. Make sure it doesn't contain too much sugar though.

This sounds like my GNC amplified wheybolic Protein shake-exact same specs and only 2 gms of sugar. I researched many different Proteins and tried very many and found this one to be highest protein content for calorie count and sugar content. I also liove the taste of the chocolate!
