So I've started drinking protein shakes every evening. I've bought two different sorts. One slow, to drink just before I go to bed, and one fast to drink after I've worked out.
I've tried having protein before, but then I only had it right after I've worked out. And the sort I had contained loads of sugar, so it was hard getting a good nights sleep. Plus it was hard for my stomach to digest, and I sometimes felt queasy when I was lying down.
This is not just to gain weight, but also to be able to build muscles and become stronger, as I still need much more strength if I'm to be able to be as explosive in kumite and kata as I want to be. But as my sensei told me, it seems like my body wants to be tiny...
The clerk told me I can put the shake in the fridge to make it into a dessert. I was imagining it to become more like a chocolate mousse or pudding, but it only became cold and had the same consistency as before. So that was a bit of a let down! Or maybe I just need a blender to mix it properly?
Anyhow, this new supplement tastes good, is gentle to my stomach and contains no sugar. So it works out nicely drinking it before bed. I now just have to see if it will help with building muscles :)
