I'm curious to see which form of milk is the best to use when making Protein powder shake. I have used 2% and skim milk (about 0.1%). The 2% tends to make a thicker shake than the skim milk, therefore filling me up quicker. The protein shake I'm using is Bio-X's Power Meal. Any suggestions on what form of milk should I use since I'm trying to bulk up?

i would just take it in skim milk. mainly becuase the other types of milk 2%, whole, etc. just have a lot more fat, and most of that milk fat is saturated.

I'd go with skim also.....unless you are looking to add fat into your diet....but I think there are better sources for "good" fats than milk.

I actually like using 1%. It's got about 5g of fat per 16 oz.

When I was bulking, it was whole milk or nothing. Get some whole milk and toss some heavy whipping cream in there with it too. And some Hersey's syrup! And some chocolate ice cream!

Is the ice cream used to increase the calories??? So then ice cream is a good way of increasing the calories intake???

Adding in ice cream would definitely increase the calories, but I think there are better ways of increasing cals than eating ice cream. Try adding in peanut butter or something similar if you need some extra cals/fat.

The fat in milk is mostly saturated which is not the best choice of fat IMO.

The reason you don't get the ending is that they chopped out the final chapter of the book in the US printing (which was used for the movie.) I haven't gotten a chance to read the book, but I guess the unabridged book clears it up.

Skim milk only.

If I need fat I add a teaspoon of flax oil.

I enjoy cheese so I don't like to blow my saturated fat "budget" on milk.

In his case, ice cream will not do him any harm. How about peanut butter, ice cream and maybe some chocolate syrup?

Since money is an issue, and ice cream is cheap, tasty and a source of extra calories, I say go for it! If you must keep on the safe side, then take it post workout.

In the morning, I have my MRP mixed with peanut butter and banana. Then I should put ice cream in my second shake of the day. Is this OK???

Yes that's fine. Personally, I'd go with the whole nine yards first thing in the morning and just have a regular shake postworkout.
