    Hello,

    Does anybody know if you can have protein shakes on SW and if so how many syns would this be?

    My b-friend is considering doing it with me but he uses the gym and likes his shakes in the morning after the gym

    You can have anything you want on SW, but they'll be 1 syn per 20 calories as no free food.

    Well I think that's generally the point - you can get all the protein you need from chicken, meat, pulses etc - which are naturally complex, take time/energy to break down and contain many other nutrients as well. So there is no just no need to take calorie-loaded protein shakes.

    I'm not saying they are a bad thing, obviously many athletes take them for practical reasons - but theres nothing in them you cant get (and more) from normal food. So if you want one you have to syn it on SW Im afraid.

    Thanks for that. I would rather eat food than drink protein shakes but my other half loves them after the gym. Based on the 20 cals per syn i think weve worked it out to be 4 per shake.

    Thanks for the support

    hi i take a protein shake 4-5 days a week after a weight session at the gym. i use the gold standard protein...vanilla ice cream...its delish!it works out as 6 syns..its kinda high i know but worth it. I wouldnt be without them.people say they would rather have a curly wurly for that lol but the protein is better for ur body.and yes u can also get the same protein from eggs and chicken etc...the protein repairs ur body after weight training also :) hope this helps x x x
