Question Protein shake question

Hi,
I've been drinking protein supplement shakes for a while now instead of eating meat for lunch to get adequate protein, and was wondering if it's healthier than eating chicken, or turkey? Like, the shakes don't have any cholesterol or saturated fats in it as opposed to meat. I do eat meat like 4-5x a week for dinner and that's only one serving each of those days. Sometimes I'll have eggs or tuna for lunch too, but meats are so high in cholesterol and sat fat that I try to limit my consumption to like I said about one serving 4-5 days a week.

Re: Protein shake question

protein shakes are just that, a supplement. they are a supplement for food, not a replacement.

Re: Protein shake question

fish is a very good source of protein and is much lower in cholestrol and saturated fat than meat. don't feel you have to rely solely on animal protein though. combining vegetable sources of protein ensures a supply of all the essential amino-acids. eat more legumes, nuts and seeds, grains (particularly quinoa) and breads and cereals, and potaoes. soya is also a very good source. the general rule is:-

breads, cereals and grains with legumes
breads, cereals and grains with potatoes and other vegetables
breads, cereals and grains with nuts and seeds

protein from vegetable combinations also is beneficial in the context of this thread because vegetables contain very minimal levels of cholestrol.

There are so many benefits to "Whey protein" protein though....one of the benefits is how whey increases the immunity. Plus, my family eats meat and it's hard to balance my meals around everyone else sometimes. ALthough, I choose pasta, and burritos and stuff on my non-meat days. Are you a vegetarian, and if you are, do you feel better than when you were eating meat? THanks again Ratboy.
