    Combat...locked and loaded on target!


    I will be putting my Combat experiences here.
    So far so good. I am on a competition diet that calls for a shake a day. I will be using combat here on a very low carb diet.

    So far I like it. It mixes great with water. I got the chocolate one and it tastes fine. No GI issues to report..lol
    So far so good. I'm hoping it will help me to maintain lean mass while I cut and allow me to reach contest potential.

    I may add a shake with a single scoop in before bed as well. I'll base it on body composition as I go.

    I used it late last night with 2 scoops before bed. It helped with the hunger I was having. It was a little harder to mix with 2 instead of 1 but still was good.

    I just started the actual diet a week ago, this is week 2 of the strict food diet. Before that I was building lean muscle to prepare for the cut.

    I will be cutting for a photo shoot until maybe around 3-4 weeks after the Arnold. When I get to my visual happy point I will. I'll be doing a shoot possibly with a friend of mine, so it depends on whether she can hold her cut as well.

    I see, well good thing you have combat powder then, hopefully it will help you out with some sweet cravings! Good luck with the diet. Do you mind me asking what type of diet you are on?

    I decided for a change of pace to make hot chocolate with my protein. It actually was good on a col day. I just used hot water instead.

    I seem to be leaning out nicely on diet so the combat powder works in place of a meal on my diet.

    You didn't have any problems mixing the protein with the hot water? I have tried this with plain whey before and it just curds up on me, but I think the casein help the consistency stay.

    For the most part it mixed well, there were a few chunks but nothing major. Since I can't mix the protein in anything to come up with recipes for now it was a diferent way to try it.

    It also does seem to be curbing appetite on the diet as well.

    Sure!! I am gaining massive strength while I train. So far I'm actually gaining muscle on this cut. The scale went up 2lbs but yet I'm obviously leaning out.

    I was starving last night and wanted to binge so I got up and made a shake and I would say within about 25 min my hunger was gone and I was satisfied enough to go to sleep.

    Well I think I may add a few days in of mainly protein drinks so I'll let you know how it goes on the stomach issues. So far I have had none and they keep me from being hungry.

    When I decided that I would not look the way I wanted to by the Arnold and that I would rather slow it down for a photo shoot 4 weeks after I upped my scoops. I would rather have fat on me and keep muscle and lean out for the photos.

    Just tasted my Triple Berry and I really liked it. It mixed within seconds in plain water with a spoon. Taste is not too sweet- something I didn't expect due to the very sweet smell of the powder-- but a definite plus in my book. I thought it was really cool how the white powder turns to pink liquid in water :P
    The shake itself is exceptionally easy to drink: no clumps of any kind, and the BEST part IMHO is that the shake isn't "thick" like all the other proteins i've tried. I have trouble drinking really thick shakes but this one kept the water consistancy for the most part.. Very impressed, not only with the ingredients, the drink, and the flavor, but also the Tub that it came in is very cool/marketable.. I will definately reccomend this to all my friends.
    PS thanks for the calender

    Well I have recieved a few compliments on the mass I have at the Arnold. So the protein has helped keep muscle while staying lean! All in all its an awesome protein!!

    thats real silver on the labels
