    what brand of mix do you use?

    i read a lot about pwo shakes and meal replacement shakes, but i cant quite figure out what you all add to them.
    i drink a whey protien shake mix with water/milk, but dont add anything else to it(besides some of the stuff from receipies section)
    i mean, i dont add anything like creatine,carbs,etc

    what do you put in your shakes?
    why do you put it in there?(simple not scientific explaination-ive read those)
    what is the brand you prefer?

    Indeed....

    whey w/an essential fatty acid is great for a positive nitrogen balance, and whey w/dextrose and water is great pwo.

    It doesn't get any easier.

    oh and one thing that i discovered is the sugar free coffee syrups flavored with splenda.... 1/4 of a cup is considered calorie free but all you really need is a small splash to enhance the flavor of a vanilla or chocolate shake. really good if you cant stomach any taste of flax in your shakes. there are a lot of flavors out there too and you can get them at most decent coffee shops.

    thanks for replies

    hey sc since your the resident diet guru and brought it up, you have a link to what positive nitrogen balance is? or got a quick explaination or what it is how to achieve it and why i would want to?

    how about dextrose, is it in a powder form like whey? got a brand you can suggest?
