I was just wondering what would be the better meal choice for my last meal of the day.

8 oz low carb chocolate milk, 4.5 grams of fat, all saturated, 8 grams of protein, and 2 grams of carbs. Total calories 80

with 2 tablespoons of homemade mixed nut butter


8 oz low carb fat free milk, 0 grams fat, 2 grams carbs, and 8 grams protein
total calories 40

with one scoop of whey protein powder, 120 calories, 2 grams fat, 2 grams carbs, and 20 grams protein

with 2 tablespoons of homemade mixed nut butter

so what do you guys think? Chocolate milk? or Chocolate protein powder?

Sorry about that but The chocolate milk really does not have 4.5 grams of saturated fat. I do not know what type of fat it is because the carton does not say but it does say that it has 4.5 grams of fat with 0 grams being saturated. Does this make any difference? I mean what is better an extra 20 grams of protein at the expense of 120 calories? or an extra couple of grams of fat that will make the shake have 120 calories less?

I guess it depends on your goals, but the protein powder has more calories and protein so that's the obvious choice.

Or you could throw the powder into the chocolate milk and call it a night.
