DO NOT BUY THESE!!

These are absolute shit!!

1. It says chocolate flavor! But if you read on it says unflavored! Well wtf is it! It’s unflavored these taste like shit! Like an unflavored dog food biscuit! And they are extremely dry! Thank God they offered the trial size! I almost bought the full-size one! Btw the giant bottle pictured above is tiny! It’s this big!

The Puffs aren’t Puffs at all! They are like fish food pellets! And the fish food probably tastes better!

These absolutely lose! However; since they claim to be grass fed protein, they are definitely ahead of the chemical Puffs!!

1. ISO Poofs! That actually taste like apple cinnamon!

2. Promix no taste pellets! I refuse to call them Puffs!

3. Twin Peaks chemical Puffs!

Number 3 is in the garbage and Number 2 is sure to follow!


Supplement Review: Battle of the Protein Poofs! MPA ISO Poofs

MPA Iso Poofs is the perfect snack or cereal for anyone who enjoys satisfying a sweet craving without sabotaging their dieting efforts. In fact, you can conveniently incorporate MPA Iso Poofs into your nutrition plan as it would be a sufficient animal protein or whey protein shake replacement.

I created MPA Iso Poofs to be as low in dietary fat and carbohydrates as possible. I wanted to create something that would be interchangeable with your standard whey protein shakes that people use in diet plans regularly.

Let’s face it, strict dieting to get into amazing shape takes strong discipline, rigid dieting practices, and the mental toughness to endure oftentimes a bland and monotonous nutrition protocol. MPA Iso Poofs allows you to keep to your high protein, low fat, and low carbohydrate program perfectly while enjoying something that satisfies your “sweet tooth” or sugar-filled craving!

MPA Iso Poofs can be enjoyed as a delicious cereal, accompanied with your choice of fat-free milk, or your preferred milk replacement i.e., (Almond, coconut, cashew milk etc…). You could also use pasteurized liquid egg whites as a “milk substitute” as well.

MPA Iso Poofs can also be enjoyed simply as a snack, eaten dry like you would a bowl of popcorn or any “finger food” snack.

Finally you can truly enjoy and consume something sweet, delicious, yet nutritious every day on your strict diet plan without sabotaging your progress. Don’t be fooled by other supposed “diet friendly” food/snack products, such as chips, popcorn, bars, etc… Read their nutrition facts and while one might be “low in carbs” — it will be higher in dietary fat, and contain more oils than you should feel comfortable dieting with.

I am very particular and picky with my own nutritional needs and MPA Iso Poofs get’s the MPA stamp of approval — so you can feel confident enjoying them on your own diet.

Features & details

  • Less Than 1g of Sugar Per Serving
  • Less Than 1g of Fat Per Serving
  • 19g of Protein Per Serving
  • High Protein Cereal or Dry Snack

-MPA

The product although in a cardboard box comes in a giant ziplock bag.

ISO poofs!! Now this is the real deal!!! No chemical smell and it tastes like apple cinnamon! It also really has a cereal taste!

The calories are low and the macros are nice!

wow these taste great! They come in apple cinnamon and French toast! I want both! I want to add these as a tool to my summer cut!

Be happy losing weight! If you are miserable you might not succeed!

These make me happy!

hands down these win the battle of the poofs!

So far! We have one more entry!

Basil

Recipe: homemade low carb Buffalo Chicken Salad

Ingredients:

Chicken: grilled, smoked or rotisserie

Celery (diced)

Gorgonzola blue cheese or any blue cheese

And Franks red hot (buffalo wing sauce)

Directions:

As most of you know I got an awesome Bluetooth smoker

And I have been smoking 3 chickens a week for my diet.

12-14hrs. I just pour a little mustard bbq sauce on the skin and rub it in and boom let it cook and it’s done.

Pull all the meat off when it’s hot and it just falls off the bone!

Once you have your buckets of meat take some add the ingredients above:

Celery, buffalo wing sauce, and blue cheese and then toss in a closed container! Boom that’s it!

serve over cauliflower rice and Enjoy!


Recipe: Low Carb, Low Fat General Tso’s Turkey


Gen Tso’s Ground Turkey

Ingredients:

3lbs ground turkey 

2 red peppers (any color)

1 bag riced Cauliflower 

Mushrooms (I used fresh baby Bella’s this time)

Olive oil 

1/4 cup Braggs liquid aminos 


1/2 cup rice vinegar (no sodium no sugar added) 


1 spice packet of Gen Tsos chicken 


Meat seasoning optional: 

Cayenne pepper

Black pepper 

Chipotle pepper

And I topped it with jalepeno pepper flakes 

Directions:

Pour olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan a little extra is ok! 

Brown the meat and season it then drain offf the excess oil into the original container and throw out! Don’t clog your sink drain! 

Then add the remaining ingredients and stir thouroughly! 

Cover and cook on 5 for 10mins 

Add the jalepeno flakes garnish 

Remove from heat and allow to cool a little and then enjoy! It’s that easy! 


For the authentic Asian feel you can top with hot sauce and drizzle sirarcha mayo! 

**Update** July 2nd this time they only had Broccoli and Cauliflower rice mix, which is great because I love both!  


Recipe: Low carb, low fat, Taco Turkey Sola

This is a recipe given to me from female bodybuilder Women’s Physique competitor Caridad Sola! 


Ingredients: 

Olive oil 

3lbs ground turkey 

1 bag of Riced Cauliflower 

2 red bell peppers (any color will do)

1 packet of 30% less taco seasoning 

1 8oz can of tomato sauce 

Optional: 

Mushrooms

I added: 

Cayenne pepper 

Chipotle pepper 

Black pepper


My store wanted to charge $5.95 for riced cauliflower and this bag of diced up was $2.99 so I went with the better buy! 




You can go fresh mushrooms, I used can because they last longer and I will have them on hand. Make sure you buy the no sodium added! 

Directions:
Chop up peppers and mushrooms if you have to and set aside. 

Pour olive oil into a deep pan to cover the bottom, don’t worry if you pour too much the extra benefits will be good for you! 

Brown the turkey meat and pour off the extra fat back into the original container. Don’t pour it down the drain! You will eventually clog it! I cooked it on a 5 heat

Add the remaining ingredients cook on high for 10mins and then turn to 2 and simmer for 20mins. 

At first it will look like there isn’t enough liquid, but once you cook it, the juices from the pepper will release and add to the tomato sauce! 


Serve and enjoy! 

If you want to get shredded add this to your diet regimine and work your butt off in the gym! 

**Update** 1 hr later

I made a second batch and it came out much better! The only thing I did different was brown the meat with the additional spices. I still waited to add the taco spice packet after the meat was browned and the other ingredients were added. 


Spice it up! 

Try it you will like it! 

**Update** June 25th 2017 

This is the riced Cauliflower


This is the final dish


The riced Cauliflower is more money in my store. The benefit is in the cook time! 

10 mins on high and 5mins to simmer after the meat is brown because you don’t need the extra time to make the cauliflower bits to get soft. The riced Cauliflower cooks really fast. The extra 5 mins is to make sure the peppers are cooked and the juices released. 

Check it out try it both ways see what you like best! You can also grab a whole head of Cauliflower and pulse it in a food processor/vitamix for the ultra money saver! If you have one. 

**Update** July 2nd this time they only had Broccoli and Cauliflower rice mix, which is great because I love both!  


Product Review: Smart Shake 2.0

  
  

Sooo what’s difference?
SmartShake is proud to sponsor the best athletes in the bodybuilding and fitness industry. Our athletes hold a record

25 Mr and Miss Olympia Titles. Choose a cup that the top names in the industry endorse and use.

  
Beside the fact that it’s almost fully opaque (the middle cup is fully opaque) and it’s a glossy finish, nothing is changed at all! 

It comes with a plastic 4 way divider in the middle cup for supplements but I throw it out and use the 3rd cup for a scoop and a half of Vitargo! 

The aluminum carabiner clip is not dishwasher safe and will get nasty, so I throw that out also! 

I had a moral dilemma picking which cup I was going to pick! 

Red and black is my favorite colors and I like Ronnie better than Phil! 

So which cup should I get? In the end red and black won out! Because; I just did not like the blue! 

Q: What is the good part about the lack of change? 

A: All the parts are interchange! And dishwasher safe!

Sooo what’s the difference? 

Not a whole hell of a lot! There’s nothing notable different! Buy V1 or V2 depending on the deal you get!

I really can’t say if the Biogro is working! I can say that I am not getting the horrid farts that everyone is claiming! I cut cow’s milk out of my diet and switched to So Delicious unflavored vanilla coconut milk and the majority of the farts stopped it was getting bad! With protein, cheese, milk and other stuff I was killing myself with my stench! With no cow’s milk I am fine even with eating Whey protein and Bio-Gro. Now… Is it working? Idk yet! Stay tuned!


Supplement Review: HIT Supplements – Core Evolution – Whey Protein Isolate

20140529-130826-47306700.jpg
Want improved physical performance, more lean muscle mass, and a body that will turn heads?
Then CORE EVOLUTION is your answer!
CORE EVOLUTION is a premium grade pure isolate whey protein packed with muscle-building amino acids! It is made with the highest quality pure isolate whey protein, which is vital to build and maintain lean body mass. CORE EVOLUTION is loaded with 24 grams of protein and all the needed branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). This combination is ideal for helping you meet your daily protein requirements, and perfect for building and fueling new muscle growth and recovery. By enabling your muscles to repair and rebuild more quickly, you will see improved physical performance, increased lean body mass, and lower body fat. CORE EVOLUTION will help you gain muscle and maintain a leaner, more muscular physique.*

WHAT DOES IT DO?
With 24 grams of muscle building pure isolate whey protein per serving, including BCAAs, CORE EVOLUTION helps repair muscle tissue, which speeds recovery and maximizes muscle growth.*
Protein is extremely important for the growth and repair of muscle tissue. Research has proven that taking protein before and after workouts is the best way to spark new muscle growth, speed muscle tissue repair, and gain more lean muscle than ever before. Pure isolate whey proteins are the ideal way to do this, because they contain key muscle building amino acids.
BCAAs are amino acids that are not produced in your body; instead, they have to be introduced into the body through diet. Pure isolate whey protein powder ensures your body is getting the adequate dose of daily BCAAs in order to gain strength and mass while guarding against loss of muscle, because it is rich in whole chain amino acids (BCAA) leucine, isoleucine and valine. Training increases the need for BCAAs, which make up one third of muscle protein; including it before and after workouts is essential to getting the gains you work for and increasing your ability to get better muscle recovery.

Direction for Use:
Add 1 level scoop to 6-8 ounces of water, milk, or liquid of your choice. Stir, shake, or blend until completely dispersed. Drink immediately.
