Off days are fine if you can't meet your protein intake with diet.

Trying to maintain adequate protein on a daily basis is more effective in overall muscle growth than a protein shake on only workout days. It takes 3 days for your muscles to fully recover from a strenuous workout (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). Although, your absorption rates are highest post workout.

~25-30g protein at any resting states as between meal snacks and ~50g post-workout.

Pre-workout (1-2hours before) should be 10-20g

I guess at that rate I need to double my post workout intake and maintain the supplement throughout the week ob off days. Thanks.

I am studying nutrition also, and these claims that you need 1g-2g per lbs of body weight is a bit over-exaggerated. Most people will plenty of protein if they eat a well balanced diet. Also, try to eat more frequently, like every 3 hours.

egg whites are the standard to which all proteins are compared.
