I’m relatively new to the site, having been only really training seriously for about 6 months.
I played University Rugby League though, so I’ve had quite a lot of training before taking this seriously.
Anyway, my question is based on whether or not milk is a good liquid base to use for protein shakes? I’m currently following the T-Dawg 2.0 diet to get leaner and want to follow the P+F and P+C “Massive Eating” directions with it too. The thing is, the post-workout shake I use (which I bought before I started reading T-mag, so isn’t Surge or Grow) only have about 33g whey protein per double serving. I’ve been using skimmed milk with them to boost the amount of protein I get from the shakes and also to make them taste nicer.
However, milk adds a good 20g of carbs straight away with each serving. This leaves me with very little to play around with for the rest of the day. Also, it immediately makes the meal a P+C meal, when really I think at least one of the two shakes I have each day (post-workout and just before bed)should be combined with Fats.
I appreciate this is a bit of a ramble, but does anyone have any thoughts?
