  1. protein shakes: milk or water


    bought some protein cuz i havent been gettin enough during the day cuz im always full after my 3rd meal. been cutting for the past 7 months and went from size 38 waist to 32 now. would it be bad to mix my shakes with milk? i mean id be gettin an extra 15-20g protein with the milk mixed, also would throwin 2tbsp of peanut better be a bad idea? i do cardio everyday for 30min minimum and lift 5days/week. my goal is to just keep slimmin down while retaining muscle

    Milk is full of sugar. Granted lactose sugars are lower GI than say table sugar, still, i would avoid it. Especially when mixing it with all the fat in the PB... A greally great alternative to milk in shakes is unsweetened vanilla almond milk...

  4. I always use water. Milk, maybe once in a blue moon just to see how a certain flavor tastes with it. Water is always the better choice though.

  5. Since you're trying to slim down, use water. While I'm dieting, I only use water but while bulking, I use skim milk. The extra calories does a body good.

  7. I use to always use skim milk all the time but for a while I've been using water now and now it's the only thing I use!

  8. i think i shoulda gone with with choco-latte, the ice cream sandwich flavor i got would only be good with milk. ill do milk when i jump on my halo cycle next month

    Use half milk and half water, it's a good compromise.

  10. i always use water.
    For me, the action IS the juice.

  11. water here

  12. Water although protein shakes certainly taste better with milk. If you were bulking it might be close. You aren't...it has to be water.

  13. Water only. Finding a protein that tastes good in water helps. Banana myofusion in water is simply delicious.

  14. this sucks lol just gonna down it without thinkin. im gonna try 90% water 10% milk, the milk just makes it into a real shake

  15. Always water for me. No need for the extra calories, and I found that the fats in milk make protein powders less soluable. Plus I really dont like the idea of drinking some white fluid that come out of a giant fleshy sack attached to the bottom of some four legged black and white beast haha!

  16. I use water on cuts and switch to milk on bulks.

  17. definitely go water, it also means that its more convenient and can have it whenever, if you cant handle it get some some skim milk powder that is low in sugar, that way you can adjust the strength to suit and get the perfect calories. (also tastes like normal milk)

    as for the penut butter it is very high in calories although most is from good fats that the body needs even when dieting. decide were your getting your other fats fromand you may find that adding penut butter may be beneficial to your diet (make sure its natural PB, no added suger).

    i add penut butter to my diet because it suppresses hunger, but that dosent seem to be a problem for you.

    good luck.

    Real good. Ive tried chocolate almond milk, it's thick but good and also chocolate protein powder with coconut milk also money! Lately I've been using ON cake batter with hot water and cinnamon also good haha. Apparently cinnamon helps the body with assimilating carbohydrates and balancing insulin levels. I guess I've done a bit of experimentation. Oh one more I like on a carb load is a half cups of quick oats uncooked to 2 scoops of protein mixed with h2o. I let it sit for a few mins the oats get soft and you can drink it down. It's really the only way I can do oats. I hate eating them...the texture sucks.

  21. Depending on what your goals are. I drink them with water post workout and any other time Ill usually drink them with milk.

  22. Water for me. Much healthier.
    MOD EDIT: No advertising in sig, sorry.

  23. Almond milk FTW

  24. try Hood Calorie Countdown low carb 2% milk...only 3 grams of sugar

  25. Definently water
