Can whey protein isolate shake be considered a meal if I add carbs to it?

  • Ive started the B4L program again for 2 weeks now and every time I drink the myoplex meal replacement shakes I get really bad heartburn and upset stomach.  I did the program back in 2004 and had no issues with the shakes but unfortunately now Im not going to be able to take them any more. I have a buddy who gave me his all natural whey protein with stevia before he was deployed and I had no issues with it. So if I added carbs to it, is it considered a meal? Or am i going to have to replace the shakes with whole foods? thanks
