    I try to avoid shakes even harder when cutting. If i'm going to take in 200 calories, i'd rather it be something solid to keep hunger down longer

    I told somebody the same thing about a month ago. I have a tendency to use more BCAAs on a cut.

    All good and accurate information so far.

    Yeah, if I'm cutting I don't add anything. If it's vanilla, I suppose you could add some cinnamon if it aided in taste to you as it could have some marginal benefits outside of taste.

    The only shakes I'd take in on cuts would be my isolate post-workout before a whole food meal shortly after and those are isolate + water; nothing else (maybe creatine).

    ^^^This is exactly how I do it. I like the idea of adding cinnamon to a vanilla shake. Reps for that idea!!!

    Yea you are probably right. I normally only have 1-2 protein shakes a day. Post workout and before bed. Good idea with the cinnamon though, I will try that

    I just rock elite gourmet delicious vanilla with milk i don't need anything else, i have the ability to use milk even on a cut and see good results i drink about 24oz a day of milk even on a cut. I find mixing protein in water isn't as good for me and my protein shakes are usually my treats for the day especially since Elite Gourmet is so delicious.

    I take two shakes a day when cutting down-ive tried doing this recently and had good success. This is especially useful for getting a nice pump while on lower calories.

    Preworkout shake is 1.5 scoops of WPI in Milk, mixed with Honey (low gi) and a tbl spoon of natural penut putter. This really help fuel my workout. The honey gives a great pump.

    Postworkout. 1.5 scoops of wpi with 1 scoop maltodextrine -

    Then low carb for every meal after.
