View Full Version : Whole Foods Vs. Shakes
01-10-2005, 11:31 PM
I know that whole foods are much better than shakes, but is it okay to have 2 or so meals that are just shakes? Would it really have that much of an adverse affect? I helped my buddy plan out a new diet for himself that was modeled after my own, but he has a class throughout of the times I have a meal and wanted to simply have the classic ole Whey, oats, and water shake. Supplements are just that, supplements and should never totally replace whole foods, but how far does this go?

I'm fairly certain that somewhere on this site there is an article by Venom about this very topic.

I have two shakes a day. If you have the opportunity, eat whole foods, but this is the real world and we sometimes have to supplement with shakes.

In my current diet I have a shake in parts of my meals, but only replace meals with shakes if I'm on the run, so you think it would be alright to completely sub a meal with a nice big shake?
Can't see why you cant. Shakes are the fast food of athlets, not everyone has the time to prepear 6 meals a day, thats where shakes come as a good supplement.
Also look in the recepies section, you could mix up your own shakes with oatmeal,PB and what not

i try to eat whole foods as much as possible and limit my whey shakes to breakfast and PWO and sometimes pre work out. i may only have one or none at all on an off day. plus, i don't know about you, but my body craves different protein sources.

remember whey is called a supplement for a reason, to supplement your diet. it is better to eat whole foods but i guess 2 whey shakes work
the MRP of whey, oats and/or peanut butter is fine i reckon. but i prefer whole foods as whey is too fast absorping, which i don't find appealing apart from upon wakening and PWO.
