Protein Shake for High Carb Days

As you read in a my article entitled Time To Reload, I am utilizing a carb-cycling approach to nutrition at this point. In order to get the proper amount of carbs, I have come up with this great tasting protein shake that is high in carbs. This particular recipe is extremely tasty. The ingredients:


2 scoops of Cytosport 100% Whey (Chocolate)

1 banana

2 tablespoons of peanut butter

1/4 cup of apple juice

1 cup of orange juice


This makes a shake that is 590 calories with 38 grams of protein, 74 grams of carbohydrates and 20 grams of fat. You can cut down on the ingredients to change the totals depending upon your desired calorie intake.
