The purpose of protein drinks is to use them between meals, not to act as a substitute for healthy eating. Their main goal is to supplement an already existing food diet. They are quickly absorbed and provide the body with plenty of calories and proteins. They are portable and suitable after a workout, as well as during the work day.
