    Whats a good high carb protein shake? or recipe?

    Looking for something high in fast-acting carbs once I finish my lifting. Anyone have any suggestions? Or, should I just use a protein shake with a banana or something? My protein shake only has 3g of carbs.

    Dextrose. It's dirt cheap and will do the trick. Some folks take maxy waize or some just add banans like you mentioned.

    What do you recommend after cardio? I do like a 3-4 mile run 2 times a week or just may do some boxing. Should I take the protein shake with carbs after cardio as well?

    Blend up a half cup of oatmeal. Works soooo much better than just protein in my experience.

    I used a food processor to grind the oatmeal to a powder, then on my refeed days I add it to my protein shakes! Chocolate whey and oatmeal is like cheating, mm mm, tastes so good!

    u can save the fat for the real meal that comes an hour later.
    fat slows absorption so most opt not to put any in their pwo unless its already coming with their egg milk powder whatever
    really doesn't make a difference in the long run though.
