I feel like you do not need to take protein everything that your body needs you can get from food not a scoop

Your absolutely ryt man I don't take no type of supplements, everything I get is from what I eat and that hasn't stopped me from getting results so you really don't need none of that crap.

For people like me who work crazy hours and don't have time for 4 meals a day it comes in handy. But whole foods that provide you with complex carbs and proteins that contain all the eaa's can't replace a scoop.

I agree and disagree. The average American diet sucks (I'm just assuming everybody on here is American) and does not include the essential micro and macro nutrients needed to build a healthy body. Nor does the average individual have time to prepare 5 meals a day. That's where protein shakes come in. They are quick and efficient ways to SUPPLEMENT a person's diet, not replace. I take a protein shake every day in between lunch and the time I get off work. Increasing my protein intake has given me better results than changing up my workout routine

That's a big problem right there is that everyone is looking for the easy way to get things done instead of taking the time to research and find the best type of food for them or what style of eating fits them.

If you can afford it then get it from meals naturally however it's incredibly costly to do this hence protien supplements to keep cost down and to 'supplement' not meal replace

I see what you're saying, but I don't think you understand. I'm not talking about replacing a meal with a protein shake. I'm saying adding proper nutrition when making a meal isn't a possibility. Who here can honestly whip up a grilled chicken breast with a side of asparagus at 3pm while at work? I know I can't. I eat properly breakfast, lunch and dinner. However, supplements make it possible to reach that extra 30 grams of protein per day where you normally wouldn't get anything. Yeah, you can eat a handful of nuts or whatever, but in this case, a good protein drink can offer so much more. Bottom line: I eat right when I can, and supplement my diet with supplements
