Default Reducing protein shakes = lack of amino acids?

Hi guys. I'm getting more whole foods in my diet so don't need as much whey anymore. I'm going from 3 scoops down to 1 scoop per day.

My question is; I know I'm getting enough protein per day but may I be getting less than optimal amino acids for muscle growth having only 1 scoop of whey protein per day now vs 3?

Thanks in advance for help.

Get a variety of protein from dairy, red meat and poultry and you're fine.

Thanks but can we talk numbers here? What are the main amino acids I need to be getting, how much of them etc?

Good to know I'm fine and appreciate the answer but would be interesting and education to know how exactly.

Cheers.

Re read what he said. It won't make a damn bit of difference when the replacement for the powder is from meat and dairy. As for numbers plug your foods into chronometer and take a look I honestly doubt anyone gonna look up the EAa values to post them here.

Ok thanks.

Out of interest just going a step further, what about if one was to get ALL of their protein from whole foods and no protein supplements at all?

Humans have been going without protein supplements for 100k years. Some of the biggest natural bodybuilders ever in the 40s never knew what a whey protein shake was. They're completely un-necessary.
