I just started using protein powder today. I'm using Muscle Milk. I am lactose intolerant and it doesn't bother my stomach.
This is the label of the product. It says 70 grams powder with 10 fl oz water. According to WolframAlpha, 10 fl oz = 300 ml. But I'm not sure if this calculation is correct. My trainer told me, "use 1 scoop (35 grams) with 250 ml water". Also, checking that label, under Directions and Use, an image shows the shaker is almost full, but my shaker is 700ml. 300 ml looks too low.
Am I making a mistake while converting "fl oz" to "ml"?
In short, I have Muscle Milk, how much water should I use with 2 scoops (70 grams) powder and 1 scoop (35 grams) powder? My shaker is 700 ml.
Also, regarding usage, I'll sip 1 scoop shake while working out, and another 2 scoop shake after my workout. It's about 460 calories. Is it too much?
My goal is to burn fat, and be stronger. I'm following StrongLifts' 5x5 program, it's my 6th week. I lost 3 kgs and gained muscle. I want to keep this performance.
Any help will be greatly appreciated :)
