I see post after post where advice is given to drink that Ensure and Jevity and all other variations of carbo sugar crap, sprinkled with a few vitamins and minerals. Is it people choose this path or are just not aware of the far better benefits of a protein based drink?
This is not rocket science by any stretch of the imagination but treatment really destroys lots of tissue cells. Proteins are the building blocks the body uses to rebuild damaaged cells and create new tissue. Carbo may provide calories but is not nearly as effective at repairing the body as protein.
Amino acids are an essential part of cell building too and nearly all protein and supplements have these essential materials to allow the body to repair as fast as possible.
Both carb and protein have 4 calories per gram. Getting some protein powder and mixing with milk or water is a far better way to get calories and provide the body the material it needs to make repairs.
Please help me understand what I am missing?
ok, game on. :-)
