How long do protein shakes take to heal an injury upWatch
I know that protein powders aren't as beneficial as a healthy meal (don't bore me with the details this isn't what I am here for) What I am asking is how long should it take for protein to repair my injury once I get protein into my diet again?
I've already started, I had one shake last night and I've had one this morning, I am aiming to have two a day. Is two a day enough for an injury to heal for someone that has a low protein in-take when it comes to solid foods?
The protein will help in the long term, how long it depends takes depends on many factors, including rest. It depends on how much protein is in each shake , it is recommended that people eat between 0.5-1 gram of protein for every kilogram of body weight.
