Protein Shakes

I've tried these a while back and couldn't stomach them, but another poster (thanks again, bluenhen) suggested a brand and I tried it this morning. I was told to sprinkle some over my oatmeal, but dumb me forgot oatmeal yesterday.

Hopefully this won't hurt me, but I found it very tasty the way I put it together. And should I use this more as a treat or make one first thing when I wake up or make it about an hour before working out or all 3? I'm so confused right now! This is what I did. I combined.....

* 1 scoop vanilla whey protein (90 cals, 1.5 g fat, 2 g carbs, 2 g sugar & 18 g protein)

* 1 thing of Yoplait Light FF Yogurt (100 cals, 0 fat, 19 g carbs, 14 g sugar & 0 g protein)

* 1/4 cup Minute Maid Light OJ (25 cals, 0g fat, 7 g carbs, 5 g sugars & 0 g protein)

Total cals=215
Total fat=1.5g
Total Carbs=28g
Total Sugars=21g
Total Protein=23g

My goals are to at least maintain or increase my lean mass and get my body fat down a little more. Now at 25% and would like maybe 22% or whatever looks good to me. I'm currently 135 lb (102 pounds of lean mass & 33 pounds of fat mass), 5'5"/35 yr old female and back in my size 6 p.

Will all that sugar mess up what I've accomplished or the balance be enough to accomplish my goals? I started off having weighing around 146 with 58 pounds of fat mass and the rest lean mass so I've come along way. Not trying to over obsessive, but keeping healthy is important to me. Thanks! OH! Forgot to mention that I am doing resistance training 3x/week and cardio 4-5x/week usually 30-45 minutes.

Re: Protein Shakes

Hi frustrated35, I think the above would be a perfect post workout drink!! I thought you couldn't stomach dairy?

I think my tummy does better with a mix and not just plain dairy like a glass of milk. Or just ice cream or just yogurt. No problems so far...

I felt like a mad scientist in the kitchen!

Thanks for everyone's responses. I don't have a blender, but have a smoothie machine. I think it does a better job.

Re: Protein Shakes

One more thing....so drink this after my workout only? Or can I sneak one in as a snack?

Thanks!

Re: Protein Shakes

It does have a good amount of sugar, I would play it safe and keep it after a workout, especially if your still trying to lose more bodyfat.

Re: Protein Shakes

Good idea and I left you a message saying that I could take out the yogurt and put in fresh fruit. That would get rid of the sugar, right? The MM light OJ only has 5 cals for 1/4 cup so that's not bad. See ya!
