    My thought exactly. I suppose you can add egg whites or vanilla protein powder to it.

    By the way, some say I look like him when he was older.

    A quick scout around on the internet, returned the following;

    Pollen is reportedly around 7- 40% protein.. if you believe the buzz ;)
    Honey is around 2% protein and minerals
    Wheatgerm is around 20% Protein
    Gelatin is around 12% protein
    Orange Juice is around 5% Protein
    Banana's around 4%

    There would probably be some protein there - not sure if it would be the same as a Protein shake commercially available today, and would certainly have more sugars.

    On the plus side, there'd be a whole lot of vitamins there icon_smile.gif

    Would probably taste fine though ;)

    Even if all that is true, the amounts are very small. 20% of two tablespoons is nothing. And none of those sources provide a complete amino acid profile.
    I'll stick with my whey isolate. ;)
    That said, Steve was a handsome man. (Bigeasydude-- I can see the resemblance!)

    Which is an interesting point... There were obviously bodybuilders who looked great and big, before commercially available shakes became popular.. What would they use in addition ?

    Steve Reeves won 5 titles from memory... That shake must do *something*

    Back in the day, it was all liquid vitamins such as the above shake and well-balanced meals. The rest, they relied on genetics and hard work!

    Not sure where that is from. The actual protein drink he stated in an on camera interview was:

    16 oz of OJ
    1 banana
    .5 cup of wheat germ
    .5 cup of oats
    2 raw eggs
    1 tablespoon of Knox gelatin

    There would be a little more complete protein in that one.
