This is one of our most frequently asked questions here at Neat, and one without a hard and fast answer. So, we’re here to break it down for you so it seems a little less complicated!
The short answer is yes, you can have more than one protein shake per day. But the question we should instead be asking is, should you have more than one shake per day? The answer to this all depends on you, your goals, your diet and exercise regime!
If you have a protein-heavy diet and you’re not undertaking much exercise, you probably don’t need to add lots of shakes into your daily routine. However, if you do a heavy workout in the morning and down a shake before you hit the tube for your commute, then have another mid-afternoon in a smoothie paired with some fruit or veg, all you’re doing is giving your body the tools it needs to fuel you through the day and recover well.
If you’re a veggie or vegan who struggles to hit your daily protein needs or need an alternative to grabbing a sugary snack mid-afternoon, an extra protein shake could be just what you need. Remember, everyone is different, and you should listen to your body, taking into account your individual dietary needs.
