I don’t recommend shakes or smoothies because the fiber lattice is destroyed in the blending process, and the fructose and glucose enter the bloodstream way too rapidly. I avoid blending and juicing and simply eat whole food. But people are different. I definitely don’t recommend juicing in any form because stripping the fiber away is not a good idea. Blending food, on the other hand, may work for some people, especially in the context of intense resistance-training exercise. If you want to try it, use the Four-Question process I recommend in Module 7 of the Boot Camp to determine whether it works for you.
