Some Last Thoughts:
Let me be clear. Protein shakes are not generally a necessity. Typically, people who eat a wide variety of foods are meeting their protein needs. But everyone has different dietary needs, which they should work out with a doctor. Since protein alone isn’t enough to refuel you post-workout, and if you may not have time for a full meal, you should try pairing a protein shake with a healthy carb to level it out, like a piece of fruit, for example.
