Recently I have decided to start trying to gain weight as I am not making the progress that I want for muscle gains. Because I have been trying to cut back what I eat,and how much i eat over the past 6 months I have a really hard time chowing down alot of food. So i get some extra kcal’s from protein drinks.
My typical protein drink I bring to school is this.
Approx 1 1/2 Cups 1% Milk
2 Tbsp 100% Natural Peanut Butter
2 Scoops ON Whey Protein Powder
While I at school I dont drink it all at once as it is to much protein for the body to absorb all at once. So, I drink it in thirds throughout the day.
That drink is approx 550 kcal’s.
Dont worry about the sugar that is in the fruit. Its fructose, and its not going to make you fat. (Opinion based)
