Drinking before or after protein shakes



Recommended Posts

I know that I should not drink 30 minutes before a meal and 30 minutes to an hour after a meal. What about before or after Protein Shakes? Do they count as a meal or as a drink.

Protein Shakes do not count as a meal, so you can drink other fluids without the time restriction.

I was told the same thing as James mentioned. Until you get to pureed food, don't worry about when you are drinking. Just drink :)

At this stage of the program just get as much liquid in as you can, sip all day long. When you get to semi-solid food then it matters.

I went for a doctors appointment today and mentioned this question and the P.A. said you can drink Water before the shake but wait 30 min after

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
