    How long does a 5lb container of whey last an average person

    Ok, not mean to be nasty but other than FLEX cus I know how much he uses, how long should a 5lb tub of whey usually last your average bodybuilder

    it depends on a lot of factors; how big your are, your daily protien intake, whether your cutting or bulking and whether your supplementing with any other kind of protien.

    If whey was the only protien powder i had 5lb would probably last me 4 weeks

    Flex goes through that shit in like 2 days I think.

    It depends though. Say you had 8 scoops a day.

    @ 80 servings, you'd be looking at 10 days..

    You seriously consume 160grams of whey a day alone? You would really benifit from getting protein from other sources.

    1 month for a 5lb tub for me. That's 3 shakes a day, at 2 scoops each.
    5' 10", 173lbs of (almost) pure muscle.

    Bench: 270lbs
    Incline: 210lbs
    Decline: 285lbs
    Curl: 145lbs (bar-style)
    Squat: 375lbs

    Live Long. Lift Strong. Ride Hard. Play Hard.

    not me! haha

    that's was 2 guys i know. They have the closet full of like 20 tubs at all times and eat 20+servings/day.

    I was eating 10/day, but it was just getting too expen$ive so the last few months have cut back to about 7 or 8.
    You're a funny guy, Sully, I like you. Dat's why I'm going to kill you lahst.

    Lemme see, 454 grams(1 pound) X 5= 2270 grams of powder
    1 scoop is 19 g protein, (25 g total) and I take two every time=50 grams of powder(but just 40 of protein), 3 X /day =150 grams of powder/day(120 grams protein)

    2270 total in 5 lbs divided by the 150 grams i use daily=15.1333333 days!

    I spread the other aprox 100 g protein throughout my other meals...

    Just read the servings per container and calculate how many you are going to have a day.

    I go through about 3/4 pound a day.
