Even if you’re going to bust your ass and make the most of the Ananconda Protocol, you still need the rest of your daily diet to be taken care of. For this reason alone, the first item I ALWAYS recommend is Metabolic Drive. It’s just too well thought out, and tasty of a protein powder to choose any other brand (I’ve been downing this stuff for about 10 years now, since before it’s name was changed -lol). Works great mixed with oatmeal and peanut butter for breakfast, works great as a beverage with a regular meal, works great as a pre-bed protein fix. Yes, I love the effects of the CHY and beta alanine while I workout, but I’m sure if I was undereating all day, and not getting enough protein to actually build muscle, I’d be shortchanging myself quite a bit.
This this this! I’m just pissed they’ve been “OUT OF STOCK” of the regular Metabolic Drive stuff for what seems like ages. I’m contemplating skipping out on the ANACONDA and just getting an asston of Metabolic Drive.
Edit: DURR I’m a moron. I didn’t realize that the serving sizes weren’t uniform on the Metabolic Drive tubs. So Stu, I ask you: should I wait for the Metabolic Drive Complete, or is Metabolic Drive Low-Carb fine for me? They have similar enough protein and fat, so what benefit/loss do I stand to take from the carbs? [/quote]
If you are concerned about the carbs then stick with Metabolic Drive Low-Carb, if not then get Metabolic Drive Complete. Since Metabolic Drive Complete is out of stock why not stock up on the low-carb version with at least a 2 month supply and you can switch to Metabolic Drive Complete if you feel you need more calories.
With what you have described I would say my list would include,
Metabolic Drive Low-Carb
FINiBARs or Surge Workout Fuel (I think you might need it keep you going 6 days of lifting)
ZMA (I really think this helps me sleep better when my body is thrashed)
Your list legit hit pretty much everything I was thinking of.
My one question is as far as Surge Recovery and Surge Workout Fuel are concerned - you drink 20oz of Surge Workout Fuel 15m before and continue during your workout. right after, you do the Surge Recovery? seems simple enough, i’m just checking i’ve got that right. The ZMA is so inexpensive I say why the hell not, and I could see the Superfood filling any holes in my diet. I plan on eating everything in sight in true bulk fashion, but I also plan on hitting my real food bases as best as I can (I’d rather not feel like crap a week into this).
My subtotal is over $250.00, so I’d say Biotest made one hell of an investment in setting these forums up for us friendly meatheads. I’m still lurking around the shop for any last minute additions, but so far you guys have been great.
I’m itching to finalize my gym in this new house so I can start on this stuff, lol. Three months until college are going to be awesome.
