View Full Version : Milk instead of a meal

11-12-2005, 05:38 PM
I apologize if this has already been brought up but i could not find it. I eat through out the day and by the time i get home i just don't feel like eating anymore. So instead of eating a meal, is it ok to drink 2 cups of milk with a banana, 1 tbsp of peanut butter and some strawberries mixed in with it? Or is that a bad idea? I know people say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, what about dinner how important is it?

i don't see anything wrong with that,if it fits in your daily caloric requirement why not.

Why not throw some protein powder in with the milk?

I do this sort of thing occasionally when I don't feel like more chicken or beef. Probably not ideal for cutting, but looks good for bulking.

drinks are just as nutritish as foods are.

I treat liquid foods the same as solids foods. my stomach does not know the difference.

thanks for the feed back everyone. I decided to try something different with it today.

3 cups of vitamin D milk
2 Large bananas
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 cup Yoplait Berry banana yogurt
4 ice cubes

Taste even better than before. My blender is my new best friend. thanks again

I use milk for meals all the time. My girlfriend is very active, and we're always running off for a kayaking, mountain biking, hiking excursion. I still manage to lift, and she joined my gym, so we lift together (she used to bodybuild too). I've had to use milk as a superfast meal. Milk's great.
