Are you one of those people who just cannot put on weight for the life of you? You feel like you’re eating a lot and you’re lifting, but your body flat out refuses to put on mass. Head Jiu Jitsu Coach at CMBT Training Centre Jesse Yada can relate. With a metabolism like wildfire, he burns through the calories he consumes almost instantly. His solution? To kick off the day with a 1000 calorie smoothie!
A smoothie is a super quick and easy way to pack more calories into your diet. Forget the Maccas runs - blending up peanut butter, banana, oats and our CMBT RELOAD protein powder will give you a huge hit of clean, high-quality fuel that will keep you fired up all morning. No matter how pressed you are for time, a smoothie is always a nutritious option that you can whip up on the spot or even the night before and take with you out the door.
The recipe below is Jesse’s go-to for the boost of extra calories he needs to stay fuelled throughout the day and increase his body weight. Can you get through the 1000 Calorie Super Smoothie?
