Okay, starting tomorrow it’s VEAST WEEK. I’ll start a log thread, but in the meantime I’m interested in tips for my evening shake. I’m planning to go with a 3 scooper (maybe 4 if I’m feeling absolutely famished, but otherwise, 3). I’m skipping the peanut butter and flax seed in favor of 4 FA3s with my Flameout (which I’ll do 3 in the morning with my Power Drive, Alpha Male and pre workout BCAAs + 1/2 scoop 0 carb Isopure Whey Isolate on applicable days plus 3 more at night)
Anyway, my query here is, normally the “evening shake” on the V-Diet calls for Leucine, but I’m thinking it will be okay to skip that as I’ll be pulsing anyway. Do I need the Leucine in that evening shake? I’m planning to put a bunch of Superfood in with the Feast Shake, too.
So, it’ll basically be 3 scoops Metabolic Drive Low Carb, Superfood, Water, Ice. Also toying with the idea of throwing an egg in there, or maybe a 1/2 cup of Almond Milk just to make it extra rich and sufficiently “feasty” – thoughts on that?
I realize there are no wrong answers on this one, since it’s (I’m surmising) a relatively new experiment, but I’m interested in feedback nonetheless. My goals are rapid fat loss/body recomposition, and to keep that sustained “fasted buzz” thing I feel on pulse days, but with the evening feast shakes to keep me from crashing too hard.
No egg. The body doesn’t utilize all of the protein from raw eggs anyway, so it’s a waste.
2 scoops would be fine, but 3 is too if you need it.
Skipping leucine is fine, but leucine is never a bad idea with any physique goal, and it’s perfect to add to a big meal.
Almond milk is fine, unsweetened of course. I find that Metabolic Drive doesn’t need anything though to make it rich and creamy. Water is all that’s needed in my book. I could just never tell the difference between water vs. skim milk, Calorie Countdown, almond etc. With MD, it’s always thick and good.
