    Post workout protein powders on Vero Diet


    I've been looking at the Modern Vero diet and am interested in testing it out over the next couple of weeks, but I see that we should keep 4 hours between meals with no snacking. On my current nutrition plan - which has been working all right, but is super restrictive in what I can and cannot eat, which is why I'm looking for a bit more of a change up - I've gotten used to drinking a protein powder shake post work outs, about an hour and a half to two hours prior to eating either lunch or dinner. I see that the Vero plan allows protein powders as the protein portion of the meals, but would it count as "snacking" if I continue to supplement my workout with a protein shake in between meals?

    I'm thinking that the 120-140 calories that this adds to my daily intake isn't going to super mess up my diet or digestive system or lead to an increase in weight gain, unless I am doing the plan incorrectly, but I wanted to verify. Currently I'm weightlifting (with under 20lbs of weight still but I'm looking to up that in the coming months obvi) 3x/week and I do cardio/HIIT exercises for 1-2 hours 2-3x/week, giving myself 1-2 rest days.

    Any assistance with this is appreciated!!!
