controlled labs-golden gains
i am on a xtren/formestane cycle and working a lot of 12 hour shifts in a box factory-very hot/physical work. don't get a lot of time for meals so i drink a ton of protein shakes in my 64oz cots mug. i know cl recommends golden gains as a post-workout but i am using it as a meal replacement, i like the added fruits and veggies. i will continue to drink the protein, and at 3 am i will add 3 scoops of golden gains. what i hope to get is more energy, endurance, recomp and strength. i am current on day 13 of cycle and up 7-8 pounds. i hope to see/feel a significant difference after 1 jug-this stuff ain't cheap. if it lives up to my expectations i plan to use this all summer.SIMPLE MAN

first impressions- i admit to being disappointed in taste, was looking for it to be more sweet tasting and flavorful, also i put the powder in a shaker cup and mixed it up then added it to my 64oz mug. mixability wasn't very good and it was very gritty. now for the good part, after i started drinking i felt less hungry and drained. after i finished i felt a natural energy different than stims, fatique just wasn't there as much. i finished out the last 4 hours in a good mood and feeling full and satisfied. this is good for something with just 300 cals. i feel like my nutrition is going to be much improved with golden gains, the somewhat lack of taste,imo + the grittyness is due to all the stuff they pack in this complete meal replacement. to me the taste is like unsweetned fruit juice, not bad just not what i had expected. now to see what the next couple of weeks will bring on golden gains.SIMPLE MAN

i agree 2 scoops will do, but protein shakes and golden gains is all i packed for a 12 hour shift in a hot factory. don't blame me for trying to cover the bases. the good news is it seems to be very effective, got a real decent boost after drinking the golden gains. i think this is going to work out real well for me. question-how many servings of fruit and veggies is in 2 scoops? i like the idea of getting the essentials in a convenient drink. i am not bothered by the mixability and bland taste, quick complete nutrition is my goal.

sorry didn't mean to go against the program. i just thought that 3 scoops drank over a hours time, after 8 hours in a hot factory with 4 more hours to go sounded reasonable. anyways i went with 2 scoops last night and added less water, it tasted much better with less water. still felt that boost or lift after drinking, but didn't feel as full or satisfied as with 3 scoops. btw it was hot as hell at work and dropped 4 pounds-while on cycle. mostly water and i will gain it back when hydrated, but you can see why i am interested in this product.

a serving (2 scoops) is 3 veggie/fruits worth of nutrients approx.
also, did you add 64 ounces of water? (if so, that is why it wasnt sweet, as you should be using around 24 ounces)

i continue to get a nice boost after drinking this, i feel my nutrition has been improved a lot over just protein bars or shakes at work. felt good for last part of my shift after drinking. btw-i will be going to gym sometime this weekend probably tomorrow, and will use it for postworkout. been a long week going to catch up on sleep/rest today.

had a great workout and drank 2 scoops of golden gains in 12oz of water post workout. felt real good. made it home and had my post workout meal without feeling like i was starving. sitting around watching 24 on dvd and feeling very relaxed and muscles are swole.

another thing i have found with golden gains is how well it curbs my cravings for junk, i have really cleaned up my diet since starting this. replacing a meal with golden gains is not only healthy but i really feel full. i know golden gains was designed to be a post workout drink but imo, it would be great on a cut. i am finding golden gains to be much more versatile than merely a post workout drink. with 3 servings of fruits/veggies it is proving to be GOLDEN.

final review of controlled labs golden gains-well my jug is getting close to empty so i ordered another one. enough said, i like it enough that i spent my own money to stay on it. i will stay on this until someone makes something better-so far no one has. imo, the nutritional profile is unsurpassed at supplying a complete meal replacement. if you are ever in a hurry and don't have time for a complete meal, i recommend you try the golden gains. 3 servings of fruit/veggies, you aren't going to get that from a protein shake or bar.
