No. You need to take whey protein (by whatever name it comes. But it should contain 80% whey protein in it. E.g. For 30 gms it should have atleast 24 grams (80%) of protein.) use it only on the day you gym (within 10 mins of exercise). Dose is 30gms.
Hi well it's not necessary to consume protein supplement if you are going to gym if your intake of protein through food sources is adequate. Within 30 mts of workout you should have sone protein rich food. Like egg whites, chenna, milk shake, lassi, sprouts, sattu etc. The requirement of additional protein post workout also depends upon the intensity of your workout.
