What type of shakes/smoothies can I make that would be 1000-1500 calories? Any recipes you guys have?
The only things I CAN’T have in these shakes are:
Anything else is fair game.
Just looking for ideas because I don’t eat many meals (3 a day) and don’t have the time to do too much to so having one monster shake a day (or two) will be enough to take me over the top with minimal effort!
As in, you can’t have WHEY protein powder? I eat whey, but numerous studies have shown Pea and Rice protein to be basically as effective, as well as vegan, non dairy, non allergenic, gluten free, etc. Honestly, it’s hard to argue against putting SOME protein powder in your shakes. Doesn’t have to be from animals or soy.
Fruit/ high insulin levels by itself certainly doesn’t cause obesity!
The high amount of calories, often advocated to be used to repair and build muscles, though are directed towards them fat cells! They are not used by the muscles in that case!
Whey doesn’t sit well with me, so I don’t really use any protein powder. My wife has a vegan protein powder, but I hate it haha. But I’ll look into some rice and pea protein, that might be what I need. I mean putting 1 or 2 scoops in won’t hurt for sure!
Yeah idk what that guy is talking about, I’ve never seen someone get fat from eating too much fruit lol. I eat 1500 cals in one sitting a lot of times and I never have a problem. If it’s too much corn, rice or pasta I might feel super full, but that goes away after about 1/2 hour or so.
Liquid calories are just easy to put down. Once it’s blended can pound a whole 1000cals in under a minute!
