If you want to ingest 200 grams of protein, I would suggest that the majority of it come from actual food- not protein shakes. I've found alternating shakes with solid food to be a good system but I wouldn't base my intake on shakes alone.
The 50g per meal limit is bro-science. I personally know a lot of big dudes that only have time to eat 3 meals a day. They aren't IFBB pro's or anything, but stay lean year round and throw some heavy weight around in the gym. They pretty much told me the whole 6-8 meals per day thing is complete BS. As far as protein per day, 1g per lb of lean body mass is pretty much acceptable as a minimum.
