    So aside from keeping you fuller longer, is there any other benefit from getting your protein in with shakes rather than chicken/tuna/turkey/eggwhites? I prefer solid foods, but I'm bulking and would prefer to have shakes at work instead of carrying meals around. Will it really make that much of a difference?

    I don't think that it will matter for you if you get more from shakes then solids. You are still getting in what you need.


    On another note...are the doggies new?

    Thanks Noel.

    No, the doggies aren't new. They're my 4 legged children...Jack and Carrie-Ann...been around much longer that the two legged one ;)

    One of the definitions of tread is "to copulate with," so I hope that's not how you intended to use it here. If you feel you need to give me a bad rep, by all means do. That's the great thing about America. I don't have to like you and you don't have to like me and it's ok. But since we're still buds, things are great. I don't want you to feel lonely just because Erik is coming back. I'll still be there for you.

    My favorite gameshow is Jeopardy. The other day, I heard someone say, "Alex, I'll take people that are dorks for $100." I don't know why I thought of that.

    You do know we are limited in how much rep (green ones) we can give you? :scratch:

    Thanks for giving me another great laugh today. :happy05:

    Why not make solid foods with your pp? That's what I do! I make tons of bread products and desserts, constantly tweaking the recipes to surprise my tastebuds. I do this because I really like the taste of the protein powders I have, and of course because of their moderate calories, low fat, low carb, and high protein macros.

    If you don't want to use pp, then don't! You can absolutely get your daily protein from whole foods. I just like a wonderfully delicious high-protein dessert everyday!
