I STARTED MY HIGH PROTEIN DIET TODAY, AND AM USING FOUR PROTEIN SHAKES DURING THE DAY, AND THEN HAVE CHICKENBREAST STIRFRIED WITH OLIVE OIL AND VEGGIES AT NITE. I AM USING A PROTEIN BLEND OF CASEIN / EGG WHITE / WHEY FOR MY SHAKES. WHAT IS THE BEST RATIO FOR ANABOLISM AND ANTI CATABOLISM? THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN USING TODAY SO FAR:
15 G CASEIN / 15 G EGG / 10 G WHEY, MIXED WITH WATER AND SOME FLAX SEED OIL OR SAFFLOWER OIL AND HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM. IS THAT OK? SHOULD THE WHEY BE LOWER?
I don't know, I can't answer this for you. But I'm curious...are you having 4 shakes in a row and then only having one whole-food meal?...Cause that ain't healthy!
ALSO, REGARDING THE POST WORKOUT SHAKES:
DO YOU HAVE TO EAT THOSE 3-4 STRAWBERRIES POST WORKOUT, OR WOULD THE SHAKE OF JUST PROTEIN AND CREAM / OIL DO JUST FINE AS WELL?
You can go w/o the strawberries, but they do offer fibre!
SHOULD THE PROTEIN BE JUST WHEY AFTER WORKING OUT OR IS A BLEND BETTER ON THIS DIET?
Again, I'm not sure, my guess would be the blended protein, but I don't know.
IS THIS SHAKE AN ADDITIONAL MEAL ON TRAINING DAYS, OR ARE THE MEALS / NUTRIENT INTAKE THE SAME REGARDLESS?
Just have your regular 6 meals a day, regardless of whether it's a training day or not.
I APOLOGIZE FOR SO MANY QUESTIONS AT ONCE, BUT I JUST NEED TO KNOW. I TRULY APPRECIATE YOUR HELP!!!
