    What Kind of Shakes Do you guys Make?


    JW, what kind of shakes do you guys usually make? From what I'm reading here, it seems a lot of you come up with your own sorts of protein shakes?

    Here's a good bulking shake I made up today:

    1 cup of oats
    6 whole eggs
    1 scoop of whey
    1 lrg banana
    1/2 cup blueberries
    200ml cream
    2 scoops of Poseidon
    10g glutamine
    top up with milk

    Blended, and put in a thermos for my mid morning/mid arvo meals. Tastes pretty good!

    Bananas are low gi - 51 but you should go by glycemic load which for a 120g banana is 12.

    Geez - sorry to hear that mate.

    We can get egg whites in a carton in Australia - QAQC standards and all that jazz.

    I guess Ive been lucky so far - Ive been eating 4-6 eggs a day for the last 4 months with no dramas.

    i read it, just choosing to ignore it. I don't want to get onto a discussion about how eggs are bad/good for you. I eat them everyday, im healthy and so are the 100s of other people on this board that consume them on a regular basis

    All due respect Dietfreak - you had a nasty experience and can understand your position. I guess it depends on where you live and how reliable health-wise your sources are.

    No problem man. I'm just trying to look out for everyone. I know of people who have gotten sick and just figure play it safe and get better absorption.

    There is no reason to be afraid of something that might not happen I didn't get sallmonela until about 1 year of drinking raw eggs, and at the time i was drinking 30 a day the odds were stacked against me and i'm kinda unlucky anyway . The gains I was getting from all that extra protien was great, and lets face it drinking eggs is easier than cooking them so if you can get away with it without getting sick do it

    I struggle eating a 6-8 egg omelette, but have no trouble drinking them.

    Is there really much difference between natural peanut butter and the normal stuff apart from a couple of extra additives?

    Hydrogenated soybean oil and sugar are big factors for me.

    Natural pb's use vit E for stabilization.
