The same as a meal or a drink?
I just drank a premier protein shake from Cosco, (30 gr protein). my question is do I wait 30 mins till I can drink water? Also, do I now wait until dinner to eat ( 3 hours)? I'm a little confused.
Thanks!

I use my shakes as a snack, so yeah, I consider it a meal.  I typically wait 45-60 mins before I drink anything else. 

Don't you just love Premier???  I put mine in the freezer and it becomes like a frosty.

I am perfectly content being perfectly UN-perfect

I have never thought of putting it in the freezer. That sounds good for hot days! I do enjoy premiere the best. Have you had the bars yet?

My surgeon wanted us to wait even after our liquid meals, but I frankly didn't see any wisdom in that at all....  liquid is liquid is liquid...... if you NEED the training, then by all means wait after your liquid meal before you consume more liquids, it IS good training, but it's all about training and not about logic. You wait to drink after a solid or semisolid meal .... not after liquids.

now do you count it as a meal, that's a different ballgame, and again, no ansswers for you.

 You know, I put one of those Premier in the freezer and it turned gross. Then looked on the side and it said "do not freeze". Guess my freezer is just possessed. But love them otherwise!

My guidelines say that if you have a protein shake mixed with water it counts towards hydration (for me that would be towards the 64oz of water daily) And if you mix the shake with milk it's considered a meal replacement.  In that case I would wait 30 minutes to drink again. 

Are you familiar with Atkins advantage protein shakes (strawberry) I LOVE those...I could drink like 3 a day! if so, do premier shakes taste anything like that?  I'm gonna have to find a cosco...I struggle with protein drinks.
