It is very delicious....

Re: Post workout shake

If you get an upset stomach there is a digestion issue and as far inhaling or gulping down you PWO shake, OPT has suggested in his Nutrition 101 to actually chew or go through the motions of chewing. This actually begins the production of additional enzymes needed to break down the protein.

doesn't matter if you're slamming down 50 grams of protein if you can't digest and absorb it it's useless to you.

Re: Post workout shake

I just came across Robb Wolf's PWO shake recipe It's the low-carb option:

50 grams vanilla whey protein powder
.25 can coconut milk
2 heaping TBS cocoa powder

Seems like it would be pretty thick, so maybe add a few ice cubes or TBS of water to thin it out.

Re: Post workout shake

What do you guys think of eating eggs post workout? I usually have 4 eggwhites that i fry up and down right after a workout, usually followed by a banana or some other fruit.

Re: Post workout shake

You may miss out on the PWO window when you go with preparing eggs.

I mean, unless you're finishing your last rep and cracking an egg the next second, you're probably looking at ~15min just to prepare the eggs, and they aren't absorbed as quickly into the body either.

Now, a raw egg Rocky-style shake would hit faster, but that's...gross.

I'd stick with a liquid/fast-absorbing mix. I've noticed my body absorbs/digests a PWO shake VERY quickly, so I'm ready for my next meal in an hour or so afterward.

I fry up the egg whites before the workout, so eat them within 15 min...

Re: Post workout shake

I went with 3 liters whole, raw milk from grass fed cows after my heavy squat and press workout today...

OK - I made one of these today and it was perhaps the most vile thing this side of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern.

To make it palatable, add at least 8-10 ounces of milk, coconut or otherwise.

Re: Post workout shake

If that tasted awful you should cut back on the cocoa powder or find a better-tasting protein powder. I've been using about 4oz coconut milk, 8oz water, 1 scoop of chocolate Nitrean, and a spoonful of cocoa and it tastes great and mixes easily.

Muscle Gauge Nutrition also has some flavors that taste really good with coconut milk...cake batter and cinnamon bun are pretty amazing.

Hmm, I may have to get some coconut milk and try this. Been mixing Nitrean with milk but changing up the taste now and then is a good thing.

Thanks for the idea.
