whey protein enough?

hi guys, ive started taking HOLLAND AND BARRETT WHEY PROTEIN ( http://www.hollandandbarrett.com/pages/product.asp?xs=80CA4A331B2A44BF8AC67A061790F027&PID=100&np=1&cpid=563 ) from last week.
im 70 kgs and protein intake for me should be around 140gms a day i guess. most of my protein intake comes from the holland and barrett shakes, 3 times a day...about 30gms protein in each on of them. i try to make it upto 140-150gms by eating other protein rich foods.

is this enough??? one of my mates who is quite well built has recomended some glutamine thing 3000mg glutamine n some other stuff in each serving, but no proteins!!
but i want to stick to my protein shakes for a bit n see if it works, am i on the right track???

cheerz guys

    There's a huge never-ending debate in regards to glutamine...you should be fine with whey.

    At that weight your intake should be around 230g of protein

    Depends on your goals though and the rest of your diet. So the amount can vary...

    I'd limit the powder to pwo and even morning shake. Any other time it can come in handy for convenience sake. Stick to proper solid food as much as you can.

    Glutamine is part of protein..it's an amino acid.

    to be honest too much of your daily protein intake is coming from this shake! Real food is better for you. If you're 70 kilos then an intake of 154 grams a day of protein is fine. Try replacing the night time shake with real food - or onloy take in 20g of protein with breakfast and before bed. After a workout 30g in water is fine

    thanks for the input guys

    yeh i think most of the intake is coming from shakes, but most of the protein rich foods are high in carbs fats n calories, whereas protein shakes only hav high amount of protein n negligible other stuff.
    i know that certain amount of everything is required daily, but exactly how much fats n carbs do i need everyday??

    In my opinion, there are a whole range off supps out there but the main things are training and diet. Eating lots of good carbs and CRUCIALLY, getting your protein intake which should be around the 200-250 mark for you.
    Whey protein or some other protein supplement will help you get the that level.

    These are by fdar the most important bits. things like glutamine, I think is too expensive for what it is.

    When buying protien,make sure you check out the fat and suger content.Some brands are higher in these ingrediants and i've found that if taken three to four times a day,can put on some cellulite,even with hard training.

    very few whey protein powders will have high levels of sugars and fats, minimal amounts are added, weight gainers and MRPs may have high sugar levels and fat content though

    ahhhh i see

    different product

    and IMO not a great one

    thats the difference between weight gainers and whey

    whey is more or less all protein, weight gainers are heavily carb and often fat based

    i decided to go for holland and barrett cause i though they only do herbal stuff, so no side effects, i dont mind if the results come a little slow but i dnt want anything unexpected...lol

    i cut em down to 2 times a day...with milk...and tryin to increase protein content in my diet...about 200g a day, tryin to lift heavy weights 4 times a week. Hope it works!!
