does anyone else drink olive oil directly from the bottle? I'm talking the extra virgin i.e. the good stuff!

Directly from the bottle? LOL! No, but I like putting it on my salad :)

I've mixed flax oil with a protein shake before; it doesn't change the taste signifigantly. If you're low on protein and fat for the day, that can work. Olive oil would probably work there as well.

I wouldn't, however, reccomend doing so post workout.

post workout wouldn't be a bad idea. Feeding your body with EFA might actually do some good. Don't worry about the digestion as oil won't slow the protein all that much to have and effect.

i disagree. post-workout you want as LITTLE fat as possible. the fat slows the digestion of the protein and therefor makes it take longer to get to your muscles after a hard workout (the time when you want to rush the protein to your muscles ASAP) i mean, having fat post workout would sort of defeat the purpose of trying to create an insulin spike wouldnt it?

Like he said liquid fats do not slow absorption, but something like peanut butter would. The liquid fats will float on top of the contents in the stomach. Think of oil and water when you try and mix them up. The postworkout nutrtion article on www.thinkmuscle.com actually recommends some liquid fat postworkout I believe.

Here is another post on the subject

Thanks for the info Bradley -- I had never considered making the distinction between liquid and "embedded" fats. That will give me a lot more options with my p-wo shake.
