Well I ordered the Drive, Orange Triad, and Omega-3. I started 5-6 meals a day yesterday. So we'll see what happens from there.
Quick question... My meals for this week will consist of...
6:30am- Bowl of Smart Start cereal
9:30am- 1 red delicious apple
11:30am- 1 piece boneless/skinless chicken breast
3:30pm- 1 lean pocket
6:00pm- 1/2 Regular Dinner (whatever mom makes to an extent ie: no sweets/pops/heavy carbs )
8:30pm- Whatever small snack I can find (last night was another lean pocket)
I'm a big guy, so I don't think cutting anymore than that would be a good idea right away. My feelings are that if it's too hard than I would just eat like **** again, which is not an option for me at this point. Even doing this is a drastic improvement for me. I know it's only been two days but I'm feeling good. My only question is that, maybe I should just cut back on portion sizes? Yesterday went smooth, but today, I had to practically choke down my apple because I wasn't hungry. Should I be doing this? Or if I can't finish it, stop?
PS: Even with the short time of working out, I'm starting to see a difference in my shoulders and arms!!!!

well, you need more protein either way. my guess is that you aren't even making 100g of protein there. I think over time you'll get used to the more meals a day, and shuffle around your portion sizes so that doesnt happen. but basically if its in your meal plan, you should eat it.

Do you think I should supplement my evening meal ( after dinner ) with a protein shake? I plan on weekends to eat eggs for breakfast instead of cereal. Also, I'm sure the chicken will get old so more red meat will be incorporated into the diet. Things like hamburger, steak, italian sausage should work right?

sure, you want to try and use something like fitday.com to try and calculate your total calories, as well as how much protein you are getting tho

Will taking a protein product make me gain weight? I guess I'm not worried about total weight, but more fat is a concern. I was looking into something along the line of Muscle Milk. It seems like a good product, reasonably priced, and plenty of flavors. So, some feedback would be nice!

muscle milk regular's total calories are high. their Lite line isn't bad. its not the protein itself, but the carbohydrates + fats

Any better ideas?
Sorry if I'm asking too many questions, I've always been told you can't make an informed decision unless you're informed.

how bout some whey protein. many companies make pure whey. mix it with 1% milk and you're good. i take a protein MRP (meal replacement plan) shake daily and it holds the hunger at bay and has really supported my weight lifting gains. my fat loss is slow but i know its because i havent been hitting the cardio hard enough lately. good luck dude.

the plainer caseins or whey proteins are the best bet. I like the Syntrax Nectar line a lot as fruity flavored ones, there are literally hundreds out there tho. I also have a tendency to buy Optimum Nutrition's whey. For me its important to have relatively minimal carbs + fat in the whey, because then I can manage total daily intakes better I think.

Does the Drive show up on a piss test? I saw it said something about "gear" and I heard that used as slang for steroids before....

Its completely clean, all herbals. All the applied nutriceuticals products are designed purposefully with the college and tested athletes in mind

True, and some of the best advice I got was to focus on macros. It turns out that if you find foods with good macros, you can eat a lot more of them than something less nutritious. I know for a big guy like myself i like to keep eating throughout the whole day. Just for instance, a lean pocket vs. say a 7 egg-white omellette with some grated cheese and veggies would be even better.

Started making Drive, Orange Triad, and Omega3 on 1/14/08...
Couple things I've noticed has been the Drive makes me have soft stool to the point of almost diarrhea. I'm not too sure if it was just my mood or Drive, but at the gym last night I noticed I was more intense about my work out. Obviously haven't noticed any strength gains but the intensity was there.
The Orange Triad seems to be going smoothly over 2 days. It's kinda funny that after taking the dosage I will notice my next couple pee's will be an almost neon green color. Nothing other than that so far. I don't really expect to find/notice any significant changes due to this product.
The Omega3.... god what awful tasting burps.

Well, I'm not really worried about the TP Budget lol
The soft stool is quick and easy... squirt wipe done

Make sure your cardio is HIIT - read up on it if you haven't. That will go a long way toward increasing your endurance for the service while burning a ton of fat.

Okay, well here's my newest update.
I spoke to a Marine recruiter yesterday. I think I've come to a conclusion that I am will be a Marine in 1 year... come hell or high water! He weighed me in at around 1pm, this is after breakfast and about a half gallon of water while working.

I went to the gym today and did a mile of walk/jog prior to my workout. I didn't go heavy today, I relied on doing more reps. I usually do 3 exercises, 3 sets of 8 reps. Today, I did 4 exercises of 3 sets with 15/10/10 reps. After my workout I went back to the treadmill for a walk/jog of 3 miles.
I feel my energy level continually rising when I go to the gym. I'm confident in saying that the DRIVE is helping me out quite a bit with my mood and energy through out the week as well. I've noticed my confidence level has been higher and I have been striving for competition. I can't bear lately to have someone doing something better than me... maybe thats the "Alpha Male" side effect they mention
How can I get my title of "Looking for advice!" changed to something along the lines of a log? This will be my primary spot for updates so I figured more people would give feedback if the title changed.
Also, I want to do something with RPM... What I'd like to do is take it mid-day (with lunch @ 11??), once a day, and before I workout in the AM on Sundays once. Will this work??
01-20-2008, 09:28 PM
Sure that will work. You can PM a mod and ask them to change the title if under thread tools you can't change it yourself
01-20-2008, 09:39 PM
No I can't change it....
Wondering about Blue Up (stim free) by Controlled Labs but I can't find any info on it.

3 more miles last night. My feet hurt... I think it might be time for new running shoes. I've had this pair for about 7 months.
Blue up (stim free)?!?!?!?!?!?!?
