Can anyone else recommend something else I could put it? Maybe something to make it taste a little better since this taste gets old real fast. Also anything else I can put in to boost the caloric value, I was thinking maybe a banana but I'm not sure, they're a pain to go and buy all the time and they get mushy too fast if you don't use them in time.

2 cups milk - 200cal
1 tbsp canola oil - 120cal
4 tbsp natural peanut butter - 380cal
1 cup oats - 375cal
1 scoop ON whey - 120cal

Total is 1195 calories, 95g of carbs and 68g of protein.

I see ice cream added a lot, is it just something like vanilla or what?

I put vanilla ice cream in mine, try bananas, peanut butter with bananas in a shake = orgasmic.

You can make them with a lot of things, Ice cream and a few oatmeal raisin cookies blended in is very good, sheet you can put oreos in it if you want. whatever your imagination limits you to.

I used to use bananas, it did change the flavor quite a bit.

I'll also see if I have any ice cream. I think I'll make one tonight just to test it out even though I won't start eating my ass off until Monday.

EDIT: Ok, so with a half a cup of vabilla ice cream and a banana I'm at 1330 calories and 72g of protein. I'm going to kick my body's ass and gain some weight.

Hell yeah.

Eh, I only taste the banana. Not bad but it needs ice because it was too warm.

why canola oil instead of olive or flax oil?

If you add up the macro totals on peanutbutter, its usually 200-204 calories for 2 tbsp and not 190 like it says on the back. I think they subtract the fiber grams from the total calorie count.

^^ I don't think those 10 calories are that big of a deal.

Are you sure? Add em up and show me, cuz that would be like 200 more calories if you add up my daily intake of PB.

I depends on some variables but most likely not.

Jiff pb:
190 calories
16g of fat
7 grams of carbs (2 from fiber)
8 grams protein

So,

16 x 9 (calories per gram of fat) = 144 c
7 x 4 (calories per gram of carbohydrate) = 28 c
8 x 4 (calories per gram of protein) = 32 c

144 + 28 + 32 = 204 calories

If you were to minus the 2g of fiber, you would subtract 8 calories for a total of 196 which is closer to 190.

So, Im not sure what they do but its 204 calories. If you buy the meijer brand, they list the right amount of calories on theirs.

It might make a difference depending on how much you eat but its probably not too significant.

Someone else asked me that too, and I'm too lazy to retype it so I'll quote myself :)


I don't know, I just started using it after someone said I should put oil in. I thought canola and olive oil were pretty similar to each other.

I'll check my peanut butter later and see how much fiber is in it.

Ok, scratch that, I have it written down right here. 6g of fiber in 4 tbsp.

You know fiber isn't digested right?

Edit:
Haha, I think anyway... I'm pretty positive you don't get calories from fiber.

Of course there is some rounding going on their label. the 2 things you can find true from a label are total calories and fat calories. After that its all rounded.

Plus you are assuming fat is actually 9 cals/gram (which its not, we generally roundup)

Would that make up 14 calories per serving? I know fat has twice the amount of energy per molecule but that would only be 8 calories rather than 9 but I know its still an approx.

I think they may round due to advertisement as well. 190 calories looks better than 200 some. Miejer brand has the exact same substances and macros as Jiff yet their calories are different.

Hmm, Ive never heard of that. I know the molecules from fiber have a different shape and everything. Guess I should look that up :)

Yes, but a lawsuit for false advertising looks bad to any company.

I was wondering why I was halfway through my second jar of peanut butter this week until I realized I've been putting 1/2 cup in instead of 1/4 :(

I think I just started using the same cup for the ice cream and peanut butter because it was easier, I started off doing it right.

Yea, Im sure no one else needs a hot coffee lawsuit like mcdonalds. Since its food, its an approx. But it seems like a pretty big approx.. 190 and 200-204..Its about a 5% approx.. so to me, it looks like an advertisement strategy. The meijer brand is the exact same thing as jiff yet the calories are 10 different. Why do you think they always add the 9/10 of a penny to the gas prices?
