I'm 5'7, about 160 pounds at this time. I have found that I feel at my best when I am between 170-175 pounds, but I have been struggling to get back to that weight, and I have two questions that I was hoping somebody could help answer:
1.) No matter what I try, I have serious trouble working up an appetite when I wake up. I try and force some eggs down, but sometimes I just can't. So, I was thinking about just putting together a high-calorie shake for immediately after I wake up, and trying to get in a meal about an hour afterwards. Unfortunately, I am allergic to peanut butter, so I cannot add that to my shake. Maybe somebody could give me some advice on what I could add to this shake:
1 scoop whey protein
1 cup oats
2 cups milk
2.) As far as the PW shake and meal go, I was always under the impression that I should drink a protein/dextrose shake immediately after the workout, and eat a good meal 1-1.5 hours later. My questions is, what can I add to my PW shake to help put good, clean pounds on, keeping in mind that I am allergic to peanut butter.
Thanks in advance.
