Default When should I take my protein?

I have started to take Pharma PHD Protein, the instructions advise 1-2 scoops in the morning and again after workout.

Is this a general guideline and does it differ for each person depending on when they work out, the reason I ask is will taking at 7AM be doing me any good if my workout is not until 6PM after work.

Also, on my weights rest day when I go for a run should I still be taking the supplements, and even on the day where I do no training at all should I still take the supplements.

Your protein intake should be through out the day from the time you wake until you go to sleep. Protein uptake is at its best during the morning when you wake since you are essentially fasting during sleep and right after a workout. I usually do a protein shake in the morning and another one right after I workout later in the evening. The rest of my protein intake comes from whole food sources. Hope this helps.

There are several ways to look at it and really you just have to experiment and see what works best for you. Based on one theory it may be best to take your protein 30-60 min before training. Especially if it is a fast digesting protein like whey. This way you get a supply of amino acids to your muscle during work out. Others recommend to take protein right after work out or even when you go to bed. Particularly if your protein is slow digesting like casein or cottage cheese. As for the morning... why not eat a good old omelet and sausage and beens))
