    I usually have milk, bananas, whey powder and oats. What else do you think would be good? Some frozen berries maybe?

    I blend up the bone marrow of babies and stir in the brains of free-range llamas.

    I think you should drink a gallon of milk with your post workout shake.

    it's expensive partly because it contains freeform BCAA's, 5g per serving

    People take it for EFAs, but I think a person is better off just using fish oil caps.

    ok then, thanks. I already take 6 fish oil caps a day so that should cover it.

    It was my understanding that your post workout shake should only consist of protein, simple carb's (dextrose and Maltodextrin) and a teeny bit of salt.

    This is mainly to facilitate transport of the protein to the muscles that you've just worked during the time period where they're most succeptible to growth.

    Adding the rest of the stuff just slows down absorbtion and reduces your potential gains in the long run.

    Here's my source, but it's a reeeeaaly long read. If you do actually read it, let me know your thoughts:
