Getting smacked by Purus Labs!
- 03-11-2011, 06:40 AM
I fasted succesfully for 24+ hours I drank 3 servings of my fasted mix that I post in my last update. As to the effictiveness of Fat Smack on appettite supression I would say at first I was starving! but then it faded and I barely thought about food. I could definetely tell when my first dose of Fat Smack wore off because the hunger came right back but then faded again after my second dose. Overall I was very satisifed with it for the day
When I came home from work it was about 22 hours fasting.. I took 2 caps SLINshot and got my grub on Started off with a small salad with a hard boiled egg and chicken and then nice sized ribeye steak with a bunch of roasted red potatoes and quiona and ended it with some frozen bananas chopped up and topped with melted dark chocolate with hazelnuts!
Wanted to wait 2 hours after my meal before going to sleep so I ended up going to bed pretty late

I experimented with a recipe thursday. I was at a resturant some time back and on the menu they had flounder francaise which said it was a flounder filet coated with egg and flour fried in white wine. Well I had some wild caught flounder in the freezer that I had been wanting to make but didn't really have an idea on how to cook the white fish (since I made the move towards paleo I didn't really wanna use my old bay on top) so when I read this a light when off in my head and I decided to try this out but with some almond meal
I dipped the flounder in egg and then coated it in a mix of almond meal with some lemon pepper spinkled in it and then pan fried it with some EVOO and it came out great! I will be doing this again and will post up pics with a nutrition break down and serving sizes of ingredients used

Extensive BCAA/EAA Comparison (Xtend,NP Bulk, Purple Wrath, ICE (Ajinomoto) + Others) Pretty good stuff in there for you guys considering BCAAs. Looks like he says PP is the best overall but recoverpro isnt tried and xtend looks to reign supreme with flavoring

Good luck on this Josh! I've used Slin Shot and Fat Smack separately, and they're both pretty good. Whenever I took SlinShot post workout, I always felt like I could eat a lot more. I hope they treat you well together!

You can get a kilo of BCAA for $20. Now that's cheap.

I mostly used tha AX brand which was also 4:1:1 but I was getting it free. I switch to Recoverpro when I had to start paying for it, lol. I've tasted worse and forced it down, ASGT for example.
I didn't realize recoverpro was off the shelf, why?
Don't take this the wrong way, I not trying to make a sale or anything. I was just wondering if JJ had tried the 4 to 1 version and if so, did he think it was worth it. It's all I've used, never tried the 2 to 1 version.

Hopefully this re-release of recoverpro will have a better flavoring system

I don't want to make it look like I am running a promo, but to answer Josh's question:
Ajinomoto is a food science corporation. They have an insane amount of products ranging from table salt to, well BCAA. The reason Ajipure (Ajinomoto's product) is utilized is because of quality guarantee and it is instantized, so its not as hydrophobic as your average BCAA product.

I've been able to find this online at retailers ranging between 44-48 without shipping.

I have always used xtend and only once deviated and used a tub of recoup (nutra had a sale) and once done went back to xtend. I read info on the benefits of leucine and thought about adding but never did nor tried any product with a higher amount of it. I do plan to try a 4:1 for a couple of months and see if it's worth it but if I find a 4:1 ratio BCAA that the price is comparable to xtend and taste good then I will more than likely switch bit I would imagine more leucine per serving would mean more $ per serving so I would have to try it and see of it's worth it

Oh and that reminds me I have been meaning to tell you, hassets is having another in-house tournament coming up. I don't knew if you knew about this one or not and what's up with the other one you was telling me about? Still waiting for the details on that

Interesting though.. I like the fact of having an official gaureentee especially since as wel all know supplement companies can really put whatever they want in a bottle and on a label. I'm look more into this hydrophobic issue too as well.. It's looking like ibcaas is gonna be on my list of supplements to try alongside recoverpro

Subbed big fella. Catching up on log as we speak. Bcaa's and Eaa's really helped me when I was cutting, and they still do. I think they should be in everyone's arsenal.

Late to the party, but in.
You should enjoy this. I enjoyed SlinShot.

At work I have a gallon jug I keep in the fridge and everyday I fill it with water and drink that thoughout my shift. What if I were to dump a bunch of aminos in there and drank that thoughout my shift. Think there would be any benifit to it?
I did try this once with some EAAs I had but I didnt do it long enough and the EAAs were freaking nasty tasting so I gave it up. I didnt want to use my xtend since it would have been $$$$
Interested to hear thoughts on this idea

I have been shooting 5 grams Bcaa in-between a few meals

You guys see the new nike ad?
Kinda surprised Nike put out an add like this but its awesome none the less. More girls in our society need to take this attitude rather than the americans next top model look IMO

Hell, regarding that butt, I'd just do it.
03-12-2011, 12:55 AM
I've used bcaa's and eaa's as well between meals/ in place of them and had good success when doing it. Also tried your fasted idea with just them and really liked it.
My buddy got some samples of fat Smack and said the energy was clean from it, said he really enjoyed the samples. We were on nights at the time, so he picked up a bottle and ran it. I'll check back with him and see what his final verdict is on it.
