The only reason I was going to have carbs with my protein shake was because I thought you were supposed to evenly spread your protein, carbs and fat out over your 6 meals. The main reason I was looking for carbs in the shake is basically because I don't wanna make and eat 6 whole meals, because I would like to have some free time.
I was curious, however, if there's any problem with doing what you said w8, and not having carbs in a shake, but if I did that, could I replace the carb calories with fat calories?
Well, I'd have to look at your entire diet really...but to answer your question yes, you can replace the carbs w/ the fat. You should split your protein evenly throughout the day, and make sure you have either fat or carbs in each meal...but you don't have to have carbs AND fat in each and every meal.
One of my favorite quickee meals is a protein shake with oatmeal. However, you can also do as w8lifter said and use fats instead...flax oil or even natty peanut butter. This works especially well later in the day when we become less efficient at processing carbs.
I've seen all sorts of peanut butter before, but I haven't been able to find the "Natty" kind!!!!!! Is that in the health food section???
Almost all supermarkets carry natural peanut butter.
You will find it in the section with all the other brands of peanut butter.
Just look at the ingredients on the label.
The natural peanut butter will only list peanuts or peanuts and salt as it's ingredients.
Stay away from any brands that list partially hydronated oils as one of it's ingredients.
