Day 2 Experiment + Gingerbread Shake

Posted Dec 28 2010 11:20am


So day 2 of my experiment! Yesterday I worked Back/Tris, then literally watched TV/read a book/laid down and relaxed all day with Bryon. So other than lifting no activity whatsoever. I burned 1975 calories! Sweet!! A lot less than my 2600 the other day but that 2600 day was a non-stop on my feet day too. The biggest spike of calorie burn was my lifting and then a couple hours after lifting. I just got back from Leg day.. I’m eager to see if there’s a bigger calorie burn like they say! Oh, and for those of you wondering- I burn 450-500 calories just sleeping.

I have a new protein shake recipe for you all! A Gingerbread Pumpkin Protein Shake:

sorry for the hideous photo- My camera doesn't do good at night!

Makes 1 shake @ 167 calories, 26 grams protein, 6 net carbs, 3.5 grams fat


  • 1 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1 serving (28 grams or so) vanilla whey protein powder
  • 90 grams pure pumpkin (a little less than 1/2 cup)
  • Whole or ground cloves (I use whole ones- about 5 of them)
  • Pinch of ground ginger and cinnamon
  • 1 packet stevia
  • 1/4 tsp guar gum (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp xanthan gum (optional)
  • Lots of Ice- about 1 1/2 cups
  • Your choice of mix ins (optional)- I like to add 1 oz walnuts, and cereal is good too!


  • Blend, Blend, and Blend!

And the metabolic experiment continues… :)
