I use milk instead of water for more protein/ carbs and I throw natty PB in there. Some people say you shouldn't consume fats immediately after you workout, but the PB makes it taste amazing, and it's only a tablespoon. Are you cutting or bulking? If your bulking, people will tell you to throw all kinds of stuff in there, like olive oil, more fruits, yogurt, etc....

Raw eggs aren't that great for you....

Drinking raw eggs

Q:Iíve recently started putting a raw egg in my protein shakes because my dad said it was a good idea. Iíve noticed you know a lot about dieting and nutrition and I was just wondering if it is indeed a good idea?

This is my basic recipe...

1 cup of fat free milk
2 scoops vanilla whey
sometimes a banana
and recently a raw egg

A: Okay - it's an old-school concept, and it's not a great one (but itís not THAT bad!)

Raw egg white interferes with biotin absorption (5) (biotin is one of the B-complex of vitamins, and avidin, a glycoprotein (6) found in raw egg white, binds to it). From a single egg white, this wonít cause a significant problem, but it's a negative, not a positive. And raw eggs can carry salmonella.

Cooking deactivates avidin (cooking denatures proteins), and doesn't harm the protein content of the egg one bit. It also kills any salmonella bacteria present . (7)

(On a side note Ė donít worry about denaturing (8) protein. Your body still digests it fine Ė it just means the shape of the molecule has changed and any biological activity it once had is now gone Ė for example, an enzyme wonít work once itís been cooked.)

Now, if youíre looking to include egg protein in your shake, Nitrean has it in there already.

And it tastes a LOT better than raw eggs!

Raw eggs are fine.

Post workout for strength athletes should be 3/1 or 4/1 carbs to protein. No fats. Fats slow down the digestive process.

I take in 100g of carbs post-workout w/ 6g of Luecine. 20 minutes later, I take in 25g od whey. Then, I try to eat as much as I can when I get home from the gym.

If that's too com-plicated for you, jsut get 3/1 carbs to protein immediately after your workout with no fat.

Raw eggs are fine.

I also agree with this if they are local farm fresh eggs. I am slightly less comfortable of the commercially farmed eggs.
