My 25 year old brother joined a gym two months ago. He does one hour of exercise when he goes to gym. Due to excessive office work, he can't go to the gym regularly. He takes daily, 30 gram protein shakes.
If he doesn't go to gym for a whole week, but continues to take protein shakes, is it beneficial?
Or, is it dangerous to take protein shakes while not going to the gym regularly?
I know that after a workout there are two to three days of recovery. I think that there is no need for protein shakes after that recovery period.
If he doesn't go to the gym and continues to take protein shakes, is there a chance that it will be converted into fat? Or is it not converted into fat because it is not fat?
