    all alcohol's pretty bad for your training.bein 17 as well i know its hard tryna keep off the booze, but it gets alright once u realise that u can kick the **** outta most the peeps there. but for real if ur gonna drink ma advice would be eat plenty of carbs and drink tons of water b4, and if possible drink water there as well.

    For a dessert I've tried these two, they taste pretty good, almost like Angel's delight but are better for ya ;)

    A simple one is - Whey powder & (plain) fromage frais.

    30g of whey powder, 4 ice cubes, 1 banana, 150 - 200ml of water/milk (or half and half). Blend together. The ice makes this thick like Angels delight.

    Obviously the flavour of your whey powder has a big impact on the colour and flavour of the 'dessert'.

    I guess you could use dry milk powder (skimmed) and throw in an egg if you don't have whey powder. There's quite a few carbs in the dry milk powder tho but I guess your bulking at your age? Sweeten with honey or flavoured yoghurt.

    I'm always experimenting with mixing things in the blender. A favourite breakfast once a week or so is:

    Porridge oats
    whey powder
    milk
    raisins
    1 banana
    dried milk powder (skimmed)
    1 tbsp peanut butter (only just added this the last time I made it)
    1 tsp of flax oil

    That makes about 1 pint to drink, tastes great with Reflex Instant Whey (mint choc flavour).
