My 3 Shakes

These are 3 shakes which I came up with myself; tell me what you think…I would have one of the first 2 in the morning for breakfast, and the third one is my post-workout shake

80g Oats
200ml Skimmed Milk
Tbsp Peanut Butter
1 Medium Banana
Scoop Chocolate-Flavoured Whey Powder
Water

  • 640 Cals/ 45g Protein/ 80g Carbs/ 16g Fat

50g Weetabix Mini’s w/ Chocolate Chips
40g Oats
300ml Skimmed Milk
150g Fat-Free Natural Yoghurt
Scoop Chocolate-Flavoured Whey Powder
Water

  • 645 Cals/ 50g Protein/ 95g Carbs/ 8g Fat

Scoop Chocolate-Flavoured Whey Powder
40g Dextrose
20g Chocolate Milkshake Powder
28g Dried Skimmed Milk Powder

  • 430 cals/ 35g Protein/ 70g Carbs (all simple)/ 2g Fat

I have a question about the 2nd one- should I be worrying that between 15-20g of the carbs are sugars coming from the mini choc-chip weetabix?? Apart from that, how do they look?

Not bad, could be better. I know that you’re trying to get bigger, so I’d man up and go with whole milk. The fat will help supply energy needed to build muscle. Same thing with the yogurt.

Shakes are a good thing, but breakfast is better, try to eat a real breakfast. Stick your shakes in between meals. 1 before breakfast, breakfast, 1 after, for example. Or breakfast, shake, lunch, shake, what ever works for you.

Also, why are you worrying about 15-20 grams of carbs? That’s an unhealthy way to think then you’re 130. That’s 80 calories at most!

Try these shakes.

BaseMix
  24 ounces of whole milk
  3 scoops chocolate Grow! or protein powder

Mr.PeanutButter
  To the base, add
  1/2 pint of Breyer's Chocolate Ice Cream
  2 tablespoons of Peter Pan peanut butter
  Blend and drink

MintyGoodness
  To the base, add
  1/2 pint Breyer's Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
  Blend and chug, trying to get those anabolic chocolate pieces into your mouth without having to dig them out with a spoon.
