Question about food versus shakes
04-19-2006 11:51 PM
Something which I dont see mentioned is the lack of micronutrition in a typical whey+dextrose/malto shake. Both are refined ingredients devoid of vitamins/minerals that whole food has.
Hypothetically someone cutting on a 2500 kcal diet with 2x500kcal whey+dex shakes would be getting the micronutrients of a 1500kcal diet. Food for thought...

Okay, since I'm bulking, this is my "shake":
2 cups oatmeal ground up in 2 cups of water.
There isn't any protein powder in it, just oatmeal in water. I have this with a meal always, never just straight carbs for a meal.
(It takes too long to cook and eat 2 cups of oatmeal a few times a day.)
Would you guys count this as a "shake" or am I alright in doing this?

I like to throw in some Chlorella or spirulina to pump up the micro and phyto complex of the shake.

I add a whole host of supplements to my protien shake (the flavor helps mask the taste of the supps).
