    Fats and Proteins look solid, with carbs as the cal buffer. Well done!

    Post workout: I've been told milk digests slowly so it's not ideal to mix with your shake, since you want that protein readily available within the first 15 minutes after working out. Hard for me because I love milk, but just seperate and take the milk 45 min later than the protein. Might want to look into things that actually speed up the protein intake like dextrose.
    Scars are tatoos with better stories.
