    they build up muscle, but when you stop trainig that muscle will turn to fat. so in the long term it can be a problem.

    They don't build muscle, they provide extra protein which can be used to build muscle. You've got to put in the hard work still.

    When i'm training i'll have two on training days (first thing in the morning and one straight after going to the gym) then just the morning one when i'm not going to the gym
    They should only be used as a supplement to a good diet though, you should try and get as much protein through real foods as possible, then use shakes to supplement that

    There are several topics on this, but few on here are particularly good. Go to a bodybuilding site and lookup diets for bulking. I know you're not trying to do bodybuilding, but it's the same kind of weight you're trying to put on. The guy who said it all goes to fat had no idea what he's talking about. As stated, it can be used to supplement and support a good bulking diet, but you unlikely see any change without a legit weight program and overhauled diet. Knowledge (and discipline) is power.

    Forgot to mention, Optimum Nuntrition Gold Standard Chocolate is by far the best flavor I've ever had. Also, may want to look into weight gainers to go with or instead of the protein shake. Has the carbs and calories to go with the protein necessary to put on mass.
