Default Whey Protein?

I've been reading about Whey protein, from what I've read, i should consume 1 gram of protein per body weight. Should i drink protein even on days I'm not working out, in other words, everyday of the week?.

I'm using protein powder.

You will still want to consume protein on your off days, its just a matter of whether you get it from shakes or solid meals. Shakes are quickly digested which make them great for around training or when you simply don't have time to make a meal, but you should also be eating solid meals as they are digested and release protein more slowly.

1g per bodyweight every single day from food (turkey, meat, ...) or protein powders like Eiyolab whey HT for exemple.

+1

On workout days, you want to consume an extra shake for the post-workout meal. A good carb/protein combo will increase protein synthesis and help to achieve your gains faster,

Default protein

Also, if you're trying to add muscle, I'd say 1 g / lbs is at the bottome of the scale. 1 g would be sufficient for cutting trying to keep muscle, but for building I'd really shoot for 1.5 - 2 g / lbs.

What about too much protein? I was told that too much doesn't help or is bad for you.....any thoughts to this? I'm a builder here in NZ where my job keeps me fit and I have two protein shakes a day while on the job as I consume a lot of energy in the upper body - but someone told me having too much protein/protein shakes when your body doesn't need alot can have a negative effect.

I've heard no more than 50g at a time but I can't confirm that. I know I read recently Kai Green gets in about 750/day in the offseason. Obviously too much of anything will be stored. You just have to get to know your body enough to know your limits. Most times when people are "bulking," gaining fat isn't too much of an issue per se, but that's a different deal when cutting.
