My last meal of the day is basically;

4oz. steamed bass fillet (200 cals, 8g fat, 33.33g pro, 0g carbs)
1 cup vegetables (approx. 54 calories, 0g fat, 4g pro, 12g carbs)

254 cals, 8g fat, 37g pro, 12g carbs

i also add some fish oil and cottage cheese...

would i screw it up if instead of this meal, if needed, id have a bar/shake with the equivalent breakdown?

2scoops whey (220 cals, 50g pro)
1c milk (110 cals, 13g carbs)
340 cals, 50g pro, 13g carb (MORE OR LESS i know its diff but u get the idea)..

would this be a probleM?

what are you screwing up?

the only thing i would see as an issue is possibly getting hungry in the middle of the night. whole foods, esp veggies, will help you feel fuller. i don't think substituting with a shake will make that big of difference in any other fashion.

Both meals and shakes are vital to success. Remember, working out is only 40% of it. Nutrition is 61%.
