The chicken sandwich just poped into my mind, you know because chicken has protein and it was in reference to gym exercise, Yeh i probably could have put something different in but chicken sandwich poped in my head first.

If you think that a chicken sandwich is a healthy and appropriate Paleo meal, then I respectfully suggest you read this http://www.paleonu.com/get-started/ before you post anything further. Good luck getting started on your Paleo journey.

I thought it would be ok to use this as a supplement, not use it to replace meals as such but use it as a pre/post workout to help my muscles before/after going to the gym during the fasting stage rather then eating pre/post workout meals like a chicken sandwhich

Also may be ok during prolonged endurance activities such as running or bicycling to prevent "bonking." Of course, then there's the question as to whether endurance activities are healthy...

Never.

(You'll likely find very little enthusiasm for "health drinks" here; don't drink your meals.)

Drink this if you are lost in space and you've run out of food and living for another few days is preferable to suicide.

Agree with what Cynarin said. Processed USP vitamins in a liquid solution aren't going to be recommended broadly here.

I agree that a nutrition shake is not ideal food, but could be useful in certain circumstances, such as illness. I actually consumed a lot of protein shakes last time I was pregnant. It didn't make me vomit, whereas most better sources of food did.

But you haven't told us what is actually in this thing! Is the sugar mainly fructose? Is the fat vegetable oil? It's hard to evaluate without more details.
