Thanks guys. Didn’t know I had replies to the post - have not received notification e-mail and still learning to navigate through the site.
In the last couple of weeks, I have read probably close to 300 pages of various articles on nutrition, training, and the like.
I’m just trying to make sense of all this information.
For me, I’ve been adding milk because it tastes much better than water, especially when it’s diluted. I don’t use Surge, I mix all the ingredients myself - if anything, it’s much cheaper.
My goals, better recovery, lift heavier, build more mass, and reduce body fat.
I just got back into lifting weights after being off for a few years. You know the story, you get married, have kids…
So now, I have improved my diet and eating clean foods and more of them. At the same time, I have re-visited supplements to see what’s out there and what’s good to use. I think I have everything now, just trying to improve on things. [/quote]
falcon, way back when I first started using Surge, I did the same thing as you mixing it in milk because I mixed everything in milk at that time. I also thought it tasted pretty damn good like that.
I then once had the opportunity to talk to an authority at Biotest who explained the mechanism behind Surge to me and advised me to nix the milk and use water. This advice wasn’t taken lightly given the source. Now, I agree that it isn’t the end of the world and if one chooses to mix it in concrete that’s their choice.
However, in the spirit of keeping things simple ala Jason Feruggia why not keep it simple and use water just as the directions state in a simple straight forward manner.
Also, if you’re using Surge, but the goal is staying lean it’s better to nix any excess or unneeded carbs. I have gotten leaner just by making all of my shakes with the exception of my morning shake in water. If one was bulking however the opposite would be desired and milk those shakes like a dairy farmer.
Edit: The same priniciple for water with Surge would in my opinion apply to your formula. Try Surge.
