Do you exercise? If so, then do you perform resistance training or just cardio? What is the nature of your resistance training, is it explosive / power training or is it heavy, strength training, maybe you only perform light reps to improve endurance and boost metabolic rate. What is your diet like? Do you reserve adequate time to prep and cook protein to replenish your muscles after intense training sessions? Can you manage to consume a protein source delivering at least 25g protein at mid- morning and mid- afternoon, as well as for breakfast, lunch and dinner? If the answer to this question is a no, then the answer to whether you need a protein shake or not is a yes!
