  • Naked Protein Zone Smoothie...Just how unhealthy is it?

    Normally, I stay away from all drinks except water. I never buy any sport juice or even "health" juice b/c they're basically a sugar laden soda. But, instead of cheating with ice cream or chocolate, I sometimes get this protein zone drink, as a treat.

    At least is says "No sugar added" I know it's not exactly good for me, as far as carbs/glycemic load, but just how good or bad is this particular drink? 68 grams of carbs, but does it matter that it's from fruit and not just raw sugar?

    It's practically pure sugar, with whey and soy protein thrown in there. They haven't added sucrose (table sugar), but the juice is essentially pure fructose.

    Have an apple and a piece of cheese.

      That's also 440 calories in a very easy to slurp down form. 440 calories could be a whole meal of nutrient dense food that would keep you full.
