use of quark

Just a quick question if thats possable I mix 250g of quark together with 250ml semi skimmed milk and drink this when i eat my porridge in the morning, and before bed at night now my question is should i be adding in some whey powder to increase the protein ?

    Only if you need the extra protein. 1.5g per lb of bodyweight should see you fine. So work out how much in total you're getting during the day and decide if you need to add any more to your quark shakes.

    Its really down to you. I guess what you describe will be enough for one go, perhaps save the protein shake for other times during the day.  It's all good and well taking in vast quantities of protein, but if it makes you feel sick, and then you can't face anything else for hours, IMO its probably better to reduce the amounts, and have it more frequently. Quark with milk and oats seems good enough on its own to me

    I'm a bit of a noob, and far be it from me to question a pro, but shouldn't that be per 1lb of lean b/w? Not much point counting the fat in the equation, is there...?

    Not that I know what my LMM is (how do you calculate it?)

    nah, lb of body weight. But it's only a guideline and one which can greatly vary depending on who you talk to.

    That's true, LBM is all that really counts but for someone eating a high or moderate carb based diet and training hard then then a little extra protein is not going to be detrimental. I'd rather have a bit more than i need than not enough.
