Great job, PP!
You’re a vegetarian, right? I have a lot of respect for you, sticking by what you believe in and still making great gains in the gym.
Where are you getting most of your protein? From Grow!, right? Just trying to recall some of your diet post. [/quote]
Some Grow!. I don’t use it too often b/c of the price. I’ve been using at night lately instead of cottage cheese. Take your pick for the same price…Grow! or Cottage Cheese. I’ll take the Grow! anyday since I don’t like cottage cheese for some reason.
I’ve generally used Costco’s protein but I’m tending more towards Grow! now since Biotest just sent me a TON of it…
Biotest is amazing. Tim Patterson said he wanted to send me some Grow! and Spike. Three days later my doorbell rings and there are two huge boxes at my door-step containing 12 jugs of Grow, a bottle of Spike, and the Metablolic Drive bars.
I HIGHLY reccomend for EVERYONE to try the new Metabolic Drive bars. They’re BETTER than candy bars.
Even my room-mate who only classifies Grow! and Grow! Bars as “OK” and was rather sceptical of my claims about the new bar was pretty impressed and compared them to candy bars.
I’ve used Surge before mainly during the V-Diet and once during the summer after I won a Beat Our caption contest (go figure).
I don’t feel a difference in recovery between it and my Whey isolate/dextrose concoction…but it’s a lot easier to make and if you ever take a biochemistry class the RESEARCH is extremely solid for that product. It’s probably one of the most reseach-supported Biotest makes. Hence it’s now a staple for me. For a description of why it’s so great see my “Why we Need Carbs” thread or PM me.
As far as Grow!..
I’ve tried every flavor except for Strawberry so far.
Chocolate is of course amazing…I like Banana a lot too. Vanilla is pretty good; just a tad bland and not as rich as the chocolate. It’s great for mixing in stuff. The orange Creme has the same Grow! texture and is a lot better than other powders…but Protein and orange just don’t go the best together. It’s better than other orange stuff I’ve tried but not as good as chocolate or banana or vanilla.
