I’m currently using John Berardi’s Metabolism Advantage to help guide my diet. My workouts consist of Starting Strength on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and then HIIT on Tuesday and Thursday. While I’ve been lifting for about five months, this diet thing is new.
Onto my question…Berardi really likes supplements. I went and bought Greens+, Creatine, Fish oil, Milk Protein powder…
The last thing he mentioned and said was essential was a recovery drink. The one he recommended was Surge by Biotest. At my local store it was $70 for 16 servings. And considering I’m supposed to drink it 5 days a week…well, you can see that would get very expensive (money I don’t have…especially with all the others).
The guy at the nutrition store recommended as a cheaper alternative to mix my own using a Whey Protein (40g protein, 2 carb) mixed with a Carb drink (glycocarb by interactive with 48 carbs, 0 protein). It replicates the same Carb/Protein mix but at 1/10 the cost.
Would this work?
