sounds like you would use 5-6lbs a month in that case order for 3-6 months at a time, me and the wife order 20lbs a time lasts us 3 months or so

It just seems like it is going fast, I ordered 7lbs and have been taking it for about two weeks and i have gone through over half of it. Does two scoops at three times a day sound like the right amout?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think there are 15 servings per pound, and 1 scoop = 1 serving. If you're using 6 scoops per day, then you go through 2 pounds every 5 days. Which means in 1 month, you use roughly 12 pounds.

6 servings x 5 days = 30 servings every 5 days

30 servings / 15 servings per pound = 2 pounds

Since 5 days goes into 1 month about 6 times: 6 x 2lbs = 12lbs per month.

the amount you use is up to you
if you need 2scoops 3 times a day to meet you protein needs then so be it

i use 1.5 scoops 2-3 times a day most of the time
with my work and family life its hard to get 6 real food meals in a day

but any way you cut it order in bulk it saves you money over time
less shipping fees and save the more you buy
like i mentioned 3-6 months purchase at a time works great

20 lbs will last me 2-3 months. I'm 250lbs. But my job doesn't allow me to eat whole foods a lot, so I make it up with shakes.
