Have a fair wack of low GI foods before you workout, that should keep you fueled for the whole session (if necessary you can drink some dilute carb drink during your session to keep the strength flowing - if you want to keep it natural dilute fruit juice is a good choice)

Why not throw some fruit in your protein shakes?

that would be lovely, but i just use one of these handshakers, not a blender. Something like this:

so i can only use stuff which mixes with water easily. I have my post-workout shake before the sweat settles, the protein, glucose (and possibly creatine if using at the time) is in a small glass jar and i just mix it in with water and neck it :)

fruit juice and mixing

Postby ctchrinthry » Sun Jul 18, 2004 10:11 pm

I did find one soy powder that mixes with juice, but the mfgr changed formulations or some such, and now it doesn't. Hemp powder ought to mix easily with fruit juice, but it does settle.

At this or that twist of it I feel my slippery self eluding me, gliding into deeper and darker waters than I care to probe.

Home made peanut butter protein bars (penut butter, oats, soy protein)

Hey, how do you make these? (Maybe I can substitute something for the fucking soy.)

(soy, soy, soy, soy, soy..... :evil: )

hmmm... why do i get the feeling that you are a bit crossed about this soy thing ;)

So you are absolutely sure that you are one in thousand people who are allergic to soy? The symptoms you have described in your journal don't make any sense though, but my knowledge is limited... people who are allergic to soy usually get bloating, gas etc, whereas you've described all kinds of weird symptoms... Does this happen with all forms of soy, milk, tofu, tempeh, fake meats etc?

Anyways, those don't need soy - any protein powder will do. Recipe is here:

I don't show the common symptoms of a soy allergy and I suspect a doctor would not tell me I'm allergic. But there's really no need to see a doctor to find out because every time I eat soy I feel like shit. Soymilk, soy protein in couscous, soy sprouts in sprouted bread, soy protein shakes. I hadn't noticed this problem with tempeh but I'm really done experimenting with soy as I'm sick of feeling bad.

And usually provided correct training, protein gives me a pumped up feeling. Soy never did.

im packing on some fat. but also gaining muscles mass! today i got told that I have a very nice build and that I am getting bigger. i was wearing a hoodie. so for someone to tell me that they could see i was bigger, was like wow thanks. it was so out of the blue.

i wanted to diet and burn this fat off....but seeing how i am gaining muscle mass..i guess loosing my 6pack isnt a bad thing for now.
