Hey Joi - depends if it fits your calorie goals. You need to be consuming less overall calories than you burn in order to drop bodyfat. Good luck!

Posted on: Mon, 06/15/2020 - 01:52

is this a good meal replacement if I’m trying to loose belly fat

Posted on: Mon, 01/27/2014 - 14:01

I have a 13 year old son that is very skinny compare to most kids his age. Will this protein shake help him gain some weight and is it safe for kids to take? Also, I've heard peanut butter is another ingredient for protein shake. Can that be added to this type of shake for weight gain? Please advise.

Posted on: Fri, 11/29/2013 - 06:04

Stick a spoonful of peanut butter in the mix, it's delicious!

What's with all the dislikes

Posted on: Mon, 10/28/2013 - 00:07

Steve,im 16 years old and 6'1 185 pounds should I drink one of these shakes before a football practice

Posted on: Sun, 06/30/2013 - 12:11

If I only do cardio is this shake still good for breakfast meal replacement?

Posted on: Sun, 06/19/2016 - 00:46

My question for you would be; why do you only do cardio? While cardio is excellent for burning extra calories and cardiovascular health, it does very little to promote fat loss. The weight loss comes mostly from muscle tissue which is crucial to maintaining a lean, tone physique. The more lean muscle a person has on their body, the less fat they will have because muscle aids in burning fat. Try resistance training to build lean muscle tissue and limit your cardio to 20 minute sessions maybe three days a week. DO NOT rely on the scale to gauge your progress as your weight can and will fluctuate throughout the day due to things like water retention, inflammation and so on on. Instead, gauge your progress by the way your clothes fit and use a fat caliper. Although the scale may not seem to move much, it does not mean that you are not succeeding. Remember muscle is more dense than fat and therefore takes up less space. Notice I didn't say that muscle weighs more than fat because well, that's a myth! Overall your goal should be fat loss as opposed to weight loss. Weight loss is oftentimes muscle tissue, water and very little fat which is why people tend to gain all of their weight back. I wish you only great success in your progress and hope that you will do some research to avoid all of the confusing myths out there!

Actually Daisy that's EXACTLY what he said, read the first line again. Why all judgy?

Posted on: Fri, 08/19/2016 - 19:32

Maybe the poster meant on their cardio day. They never wrote that they ONLY do cardio.
Why all judgy?

Hi steve i have a question for you or a kind of favor that i need from you
i am 80 kg and i want to lose belly fat i dont have too much belly fat but i want to build six pack can u recommend me a program ? Looking forward to your answer

Building a six pack requires a lower body fat percentage. The idea of "spot reducing," or getting rid of fat in one area of the body, is a myth. Belly fat tends to be the most stubborn. I'd recommend looking at some fat-burning routines listed on the site:

It's also a great idea to have a grasp of how many calories you should be shooting for in a day. There's a really great tool that can help you dial it in:

For your goal, you would want to subtract around 350-450 calories from the number generated in order to lose the unwanted weight. You typically don't want to cut more than that.

I am 54 years of age, 5'6'', 75kg, quite naturally fit....a hard gainer. What would you suggest, excersice and diet wise to gain muscle mass and gain weight.

Posted on: Mon, 04/08/2013 - 12:37

my weight is 100 pounds and height 5'7" i need to gain weight and muscle but i don't know where to start, i want to achieve at least 150 pounds and i need to know about nutrition and workout that is suitable for me...

Posted on: Mon, 03/18/2013 - 08:08

sounds like an awesome combo

Posted on: Sun, 02/24/2013 - 09:43

Awesome tip to make this shake even better, freeze the (peeled) banana. This makes the shake thicker and creamier without adding any extra ingredients.

I also only use 1 scoop of protein, and add 1 teaspoon of natural peanut butter to my smoothies. Tastes absolutely amazing.

Posted on: Fri, 02/15/2013 - 23:26

can you use whole milk?

Posted on: Fri, 02/08/2013 - 18:23

Hi Steve,

I'm a swimmer so I was wondering if I could make this in batches and keep it in the fridge to save time in the mornings?

Posted on: Tue, 02/05/2013 - 09:41

very similar to the one I just started making. Except I use 2% milk and may even shoot up to using whole milk...awesome shake, I love it!

Hi Steve just quick question seeing that I like to be exact with weight of food, how many grams is half a cup of Oats?

Posted on: Fri, 01/04/2013 - 19:34

If you have a food scale at home, this is an easy fix. Simply measure a half cup of oats and place on the scale. Account for the container holding the oats.

This is a great recipe, I even adjusted it so that my wife could have it as well.

Posted on: Sat, 08/11/2012 - 16:56

Hi steve is there anything you could use as a replacement for the whey protein and how many shakes should i drink im 89kg

Posted on: Wed, 08/01/2012 - 12:27

i dont understand where all the calories are coming from. If i made this protein shake with the whey protein that i have then the whole shake would only have about 325 calories.

Posted on: Tue, 10/16/2012 - 09:43

From the first comment Steve replied to on here...

2 scoops protein powder - 208
Banana = 105
Milk = 91
Oats = 150 calories

Hi, I'm a female with a right above the knee amputee. Looking for ways to lose weight. If I drink this shake first thing in the morning will it help me lose weight since it obviously will make me feel full for a long time? Also any tips for exercise for a above knee ambutee. Thanks for your help!

Posted on: Thu, 07/05/2012 - 13:56
