Sorry to hijack the post can you get all your protein from shakes or is it better to get it from whole food sources

whole food always going to be the best source of protein, but if you struggle to get enough protein in to gain size as many do, then a protein shake topping up those numbers will help.

If at all possible all your caloric intake should be from whole food. The shakes are there as a last resort and NOT as a foundation of your diet.
Strive for continuous improvement, instead of perfection.

Combination of both for me, due to time constraints & work a shake is sometimes my only option. Real food would always be my first option.
Never quit. If you stumble get back up. What happened yesterday NO longer matters. Today's another day so get back on track and move closer to your goals. YOU can do it

If you really want to nail this, we need to know your weight, height, body fat % if possible, gym sessions per week, weights cardio, how much of each? Job? You mentioned your job is high intensity, what do you do? Activity level outside of gym/work, Current rough daily diet?

There's a lot of factors involved and I know it's a bit of a ballache but if you go straight from eating 3k to 6k, even Dunning labs isn't gonna help you from getting fat!

Needs doing properly for optimum results mate and plenty of guys here can help if you provide the info.
If you think you can, you can.
If you think you can't, you can't.
Either way, you're right...
