The topic of ‘when' still remains a debate to most fitness and wellness enthusiasts. However, when it is determined by your end goal for drinking protein. Several people have inherent reasons for consuming different types of protein, such as Whey, Casein, hemp, rice, pea proteins, etc.
For some, their main goal is to build muscle, hence why it is advised to consume protein 15 minutes to 1 hour just minutes after workout routines. While for some, it is to lose weight, hence why it is advised to snack on protein in between meals reducing the chances of further calorie intake.
Fitness experts also recommend taking protein before bed, especially for those looking to build muscle, improve recovery, or general performance e.g, the elderly.
