    Are these shake suggestions for during the day or as a post-workout? I only ask because I see some people suggesting peanut butter and/or olive oil. And, while great choices--I add PB to my morning shake--I had read that it's best to limit fats in a post-workout shake. Or, is this simply a matter of preference?

    I add chocolate syrup to my post shake. I make a banana split, so to speak. Just started it this week. I add a scoop of chocolate protein powder, two bananas, frozen strawberries--get that ice cream consistency--some maraschino cherries, a tsp or two of vanilla extract, and the old Hershey's syrup, maybe 1tbsp at most. Blend the stupid out of it all--in phases, mind you--then chug-a-lug. Might need to add another banana or some vanilla yogurt.

    While I enjoyed the convenience of waxy maize, I believe it was bloating me too much. With the change to above shake, not as bloated and feel recharged. Way back when, I used to use Serious Mass and/or Muscle Juice, but it got pricey, even dosing it halfway. Nowadays, the only powder I prefer is protein powder.

    Also, you can grind up oats and add them to your shake as well. I do that for my morning one.

    There it is. Oats in your shake. More than perfect.

It is not as simple as you make it out to be. Whilst I do not recommend eating sugars as a primary source of carbohydrate (for reasons unrelated to obesity), they can certainly be used under certain instances and manipulated for certian functions.

    Why doesn't he need to know everything behind it? Or mechanisms involved? Learning the whole truth is better than falling victim to partial truths.

    High sugar diets do not cause diabetes. End of story.
