Is a vanilla protein shake with milk frozen banana and all natural peanut butter healthy for you after weight training?
Protein and sugar:
After a hard work out your body needs protein and some sugar (glucose). You should try not to eat fat and /or a huge amount of sugar.

See your sports physician or personal fitness trainer to get you on the right track to produce the best result. ...Read more
