Because it's very hard for people to get the required amount of protein in just meals, so protein shakes are to add onto what your meals couldn't and if you want to build muscle, protein is the main building block of muscle.

Why not just take the protein stuff from GNC?

First off, everything in GNC is overpriced....i would never buy anything from there again. I did in the beginning because i didn't know better but wont do it again.

Secondly, you don't want most of your calories from protein powders/rtd shakes. They are intended to be used as replacements for a meal or two a day since it's kind of hard/annoying to eat 6 meals a day. It's always better to get your calories from whole foods as much as possible (so you are getting the same if not better calories/carbs/protein from your own shake that you make plus it's all made from whole foods).

I make my own shakes like others have mentioned in this thread as much as possible....but i typically have a premade protein shake (muscle milk, etc) at night before bed because i dont feel like making one or using the blender at night and making a bunch of noise.

You realize GNC price matches right? We also beat prices, all ya gotta do is ask.

Apparently cottege cheese is amazing to eat right before you sleep because it digests slow throughout the night and won't be wasted protein.
