New and looking for advice
Absolutely no .. you dont need protein shakesa decent healthy balanced diet will see you right. keep well hydrated and eat foods as close to their natural state as possibleI would increase in the same way as the C2 5K plan and once you can run comfortably for an hour then you can come back to less time and look to incorporate some speed work
Eat less, move more Try any of the sports nutrition books by Anita Bean
No you def. don't need any protein shakes, but do make sure that you are getting protein in your diet. A good healthy diet and make sure that you aren't rewarding yourself for running with junk or consuming more calories over your daily target than you are burning during the running.
No just your normal good, lean proteins. Don't forget yogurt (I go full fat Greek), nuts, seeds and things like cottage cheese. Can make some pretty decent protein based snacks with these.
I tend to eat every 2 - 3 hours, every snack will have a protein of some kind.
Lean protein such as chicken, turkey, fish is what you need rather than shakes.
Also pulses (lentils, chickpeas, etc), are good sources of protein.
Lots of fruit and vegetables, too, to get vitamins and minerals, plus fibre.
