Do ordinary people benefit from protein shakes?

I get asked about protein shakes regularly by clients, either as meal replacements, which they're not, or as post-work out supplements. Unless doing extreme exercise it's highly unlikely anyone would benefit from them, so don't fall for the marketing hype! It's worth remembering excess protein is as likely to be stored as body fat as excess anything else.
