1 Scoop Chocolate Protein Powder

1 Banana

16 Walnuts (this is the serving size, a small handful will do)

Fill with ice/milk and blend.

Alternatives:  You can use vanilla protein powder and add a little chocolate syrup.  You can also substitute peanut butter or almonds for the walnuts.


It’s about time I finally post the groundbreaking new recipe that I’ve been using with my athletes who claim there isn’t enough time in the morning for breakfast.

1. Mix one cup of milk in with one cup of rolled oats (don’t use quick oats and then complain to me that it doesn’t taste good).  Add cinnamon.

2. Microwave one minute, stir, microwave another minute.

3. Stir in a cup of mixed fruit or berries of your choice and a scoop of vanilla protein powder (I’ve been told chocolate works too).

That’s it.

For a sweet tooth, add a packet of stevia or some dark chocolate chips.  Try mixing in some peanut butter and making a Reese’s version.    The variations are endless.  One of my athlete’s even says he “puts the dry oatmeal in a bowl the night before to save some time in the morning.”  Couldn’t make this stuff up.

What does it take to get lean? If I listed all the steps you’d probably say, “I already know that.”

Here’s what I mean: If I told you to consume one gram of protein per pound of body weight, fibrous vegetables, water, green tea, 12 grams of fish oil, and spread those out over the course of six meals each day you’d be anything but impressed. But if I held you in captivity and forced you to do that every day for a month, you’d be blown away by the results. The nutritional methods to lose fat have already been found. The challenge we coaches face is figuring out how we’re going to get you to adhere to the guidelines.
