    I was reading in a magazine about mens fitness and it had some interesting points in it but the only thing I got out of it was that.. there was a study showing People loseing more weight while doing healthy smoothies.. I looked through the whole thing and didn't find any ingredients for this. So my question is what is a healthy MRP/Smoothie I can make and so it doesn't pack on the pounds (trying to loose weight/gain muscle not fat)

    Thanks Sherdog

    I guess get a vanilla flavored protein powder and mix it in with some milk and yogurt or and some fresh fruit or soemthing...these are the things you gotta play with till you find what works.

    16 oz water
    16 oz ice
    1 frozen banana
    1 scoop of vanilla protien powder
    1 tablespoon of natural peanut butter
    and blend to desired thickness....

    I dont think oats would be good in a shake...crunchy peanut butter is good though.

    What about honey in your shakes? Anyone do this? I just bought some dextrose and i gotta say...i hate it. It makes my shake taste like melted marshmellows. If i make my shake like above, 10 oz whole milk, one banana, table spoon of natural PB, tablespoon of strawberry yogurt, and one scopp of ON Whey is this going to be enough carbs/calories for a gainer shake? Should i add maybe a table spoon of the dextrose to it? Im 5 10 or so and baout 175lbs. Thanks for the help.

    marine muscle milk or optimum nutrition would both work. Muscle Milk tastes better.

    i believe your body will only be able to absorb 35g of all this protein so if im correct putting all that stuff in will be useless
