Shakes are beneficial as they break down much faster than food to begin repairing muscle tissue during protein synthesis. The faster you shuttle nutrients to the muscle after a workout the better. It is more convenient for most than finding a full meal immediately post workout.

As an added boost, consume some simple carbs to spike your insulin levels before your shake. If you dont want to use shakes, stick with high protein lean foods (chicken breast, tuna, turkey, fish, etc).

It is not important to drink shakes. It is importsnt to eat enough protein. And shakes are a handy and much used too for this.

Protein builds muscle. Protein from food is better for you, but for most people its hard to actually eat perfectly so that's what protein shakes help me. It helps me reach my daily limit... Which is 1 or 1.5 grams per body weight. So I weigh about 155 so I try to eat around 150 grams of protein a day. I eat chicken, yogurt, peanut butter & drink whey protein.

yes! that's true eating perfectly is not possible all the time. But my instructor doesn't likes protein shake lol. So if I take also as beginner which one I should take I meant protein shake ?

There's a lot of different kinds out there, but I prefer Whey Protein or Whey with a Casin blend... Optimal Nutrition's Gold Standard is supposed to be one of the best ones right now. Look for quality & price... allstarhealth.com has some good deals.

How much protein do you usually eat per day? If you don't know the answer to this, that's okay, but throwing a protein shake on top of your current diet will have less effect.  But still, the best time to drink it would be after your strength training workout.

Have you noticed a plateau in your workouts? Have you been slowing in progress?

Study your current diet, observe your current progress, you can get more benefits from adding a protein shake to a diet where you already pay close attention to your protein intake and have a clear idea of where to supplement.
