Whey Protein

    Just a quick question about how much whey protein I should be taking. Just started using it and at the moment I'm taking one in the morning and one after working out. I'm not fully sure about measurements and how much I should be taking though.
    Everyone else I know taking it seems to be taking more than me and I was just wondering is there any way to know exactly how much I should take.
    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Thanks :)

    Ideally you should be taking 0 as you get all your protein from your diet. Assuming this isnt happening, which is common, you should be taking enough so you get your allocation of protein for the day. Typical recommendations are about 1 gram per pound of bodyweight. Most supplements will come in 30g doses that contain 21-24 grams of protein.
