I am always looking for good smoothie recipes but this is way too high in carbs for me! I would cut the oatmeal and use almond milk (very low in carbs and delicious). Also I would use an organic cocoa and Harmonized Protein from Proventive (they also carry a vegan version and very low carb). The flax seed should be ground for maximum benefits.

sounds bad. soy is implicated in soooo many problems, besides being GMO, you need to check out the dr. mercola website. but basically soy is GMO and not GMO makes you healthier, but GMO ready for roundup, a strong herbicide—almost as bad as agent orange. not good. soy is an estrogen mimicker so if you have any reproductive problems or estrogen problems, it is not for you and may likely create these.

what guy wants to eat estrogen? any castrada out there?

whey protein is fine, but make sure it has been independently lab certified as toxin free. many contain heavy metals including mercury and aluminum. not good. why not just use cream or something all natural and not a "whey" product.

the carbs are way tooooooo high. a diabetic (and pretty much everyone else) should only have 25 gr per day.

skip the oat meal.

use organic cocoa instead.

the berries are fine, but count them in your total carbs for the day.

use cream instead of soy milk. soy in the US is all GMO (europe has banned this giant agra-GMO stuff), and mimicks estrogen.

soy is great in plastics and in fuel for your car. use it there! but definitely do not ingest the stuff.
