Protein shakes are a good breakfast replacement, but you need to consume them in the morning. The reason for this is that the body digests the protein shake much better when it’s consumed first thing in the morning. If it’s consumed at night, then your stomach will attempt to digest what little food you’re eating at that point which can cause bloating and other uncomfortable side effects. Consuming protein shakes after 6PM isn’t recommended either because by then most of us have already eaten dinner or had our fill of snacks so there just isn’t enough room left in our stomachs to properly digest another meal. So if you want to get maximum results out of your protein shake, make sure not only do you drink one every day but also always drink it right before going to bed. This way not only does your body get all the benefits from consuming amino acids while fast asleep but also eliminates any possible bloating problems associated with having too much fuel for digestion overnight!
