Diet Idea?

I have been doing a fair amount of research while I work in a produce-department lately.

I am considering doing a partial Vegetarian-Diet in September. The idea is to create a shake/smoothie that the following ingredients:

Strawberries, Raspberries, Blueberries, and Cherries for berries in general. These 4 items are high in fast adsorbing carbs, and they are all fairly high in Vitamin C which acts as a antioxidant in conjunction with decent levels of potassium.

4-scoops of whey protein powder, 8-oz water, as much ice to fill 48-ounces in a blender.

My idea is to improve upon this recipe by adding in some raisins, and some quinoa. The raisins are calorie heavy, with some iron and heavy carbs. The quinoa is a grain that is carb-heavy and protein heavy.

I will talk with a dietitian about the quinoa, my assumption right now is that the carbs from this item are slower absorption ones compared to carbs that come from sugar.

My overall idea is to produce a 48-ounce drink that I can cut into 4-portions each of which are above 1200-calories each.

I think if I could get the vitamins,carbs,protein, and calorie intake needed to go through a rigourous day of training in 4-small pop-can size meals this would be rather beneficial.

Would this be illogical to approach it this way?

I would be training 4-days/week with work being over the weekend. During Friday-Sunday I would have meats.

There is a burnout factor. You will get tired of surviving on a drink. I know ive tried something similar. Also that sounds like a lot of sugar, more than you'd want to take in. Don't get me wrong the drink sounds delicious, but maybe add some veggies and less fruits? also id say add a banana for potassium. while it looks like you are trying to bulk, its still a good idea to not over do it on sugar unless you really want to and your body won't add to much fat.


here are some good ideas for a variety of shakes if you are interested:

my general idea is to maintain weight in the future.

I don't mind vegetables, just haven't found the right combination of minerals that I'm looking for yet in the vegetable group.

Here's something comical Xerberus Potatoes have about half a gram of potassium per potatoe.

I have to find other ways of taking the potassium into my body...bananas are revolting to me in smell,sight and taste.

Thank you!

Oye Vei.....

I cannot tell you guys enough times....heh.


I work in a produce department, and the only task that I cannot stand but do on a daily basis is handle the banana.

The consistency and smell of this food is revolting to me. Why would you put a ingredient into your diet that will just by it's smell and texture tell your mind to puke?


I am looking for a way to do a semi-vegetarian diet where I take in fruits and vegetables "ONLY" from Monday through Friday.

The "ONLY" exclusion from this would be "BANANAS".

For the recipe I have now is: strawberries,blueberry, raspberry,blackberry,cherry, 4 scoops of protein powder.

I want to include anything and everything that would be needed in a healthy "FIGHTER'S DIET" that would come from fruit or vegetables.

My goal is to blend any fruit/vegetable mix into a shake with protein powder to obtain 4-5 thousand calories.

(I am sorry if I used capital letters, but it is very sad that people keep suggesting the banana.....as the end-all solution)
