The thing is, it 1) satiates me and 2) I can control the calories very well so it fits right into my weight loss plan.
At the end of the day it boils down to two things 1. burning more energy than I put in and 2. eating nutritious foods.
I do about the same thing. I take whey protein in the morning with my oatmeal and a post workout shake that is a blend. Usually sticking around 2 protein drinks a day. Sometimes i'll add in a 3rd for right before bed if i'm craving something sweet. Which is mostly a casein protein. Like Cinnamon Roll UP 2.0. Good stuff there. Or Cookies and Cream Combat. Both are sweet tasting proteins.
