Just curious how does that taste. Honestly doesn't sound all that great tasting. I also don't think you are getting enough protein in your diet.

My only question is, as other people have said, are you getting enough protein?

Otherwise, that's definitely a move in the right direction!

To be honest, I just bought a gym membership today (waited till I found work before making the investment) so haven't felt the need to try out the shake yet. Tomorrow is the first gym day and I will try it first thing in the morning. Since you say I'm not getting enough protein, I went ahead and added some cottage cheese to the recipe. The shake totals out to 64g of protein now. Three of those a day with two solid meals and a whey protein shake will do wonders, I would think. Thanks for your advice.

Edit: And about the taste, it's all about mind over matter for me. Ate a can of sardines packed in olive oil yesterday for the first time, didn't even wince!

As of right now, my planned diet ends up totaling 245g of protein. And I'm 170 lbs. atm, hardly any muscle. I appreciate the help.

The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

It tastes like a peanut butter smoothie.. Even with cottage cheese and olive oil, it's incredible
