When I eat 6 meals per day is it okay to have 4 solid food meals and 2 weight gain shakes? Due to time restraints I can't eat 6 chicken or steak dinners. So my plan is to eat 4 solid meals and drink two home made weight gain shakes. My shakes consist off, milk, oatmeal, whey, peanut butter and a banana. One shake is about 600 cals. I know that if I replaced my meals with some crap gainer like N-Large 2 it wouldnt be a good idea, but since my shakes are home made and basically consist of real food just blended up is that okay?
PS. Does the body absorb the nutrients from a blended shake the same as eating the food? Sometimes I just have the urge to dump a chicken breast in the blender and drink it lol.
