I have not. It's good as hell with gatorade, arrived a few days ago. Cold Filtration w/e taste smooth as hell, don't even know protein is in it in only 40g of gatorade.

Why do you all get unflavored protonz? I easily find well flavored powders from reputable sources for <$10/lb

In for answer. It seems like adipowers are the favored option. Eastbay only had clown shoe sizes left in stock. They have some Romaleos in my size but not keen on the available colorways.

Man water retention is tricky as fuck. My waist looks like 3-4" bigger than it did yesterday morning cause I was out drinking and dehydrating last night

I would say people go for unflavored because you can add it to whatever you want and it will take on that flavor. Of you put chocolate protein in orange Gatorade it was taste like shit.
When I used to do that though I always go vanilla. Vanilla protein and orange g2 is like cream soda.

For me unflavoured is like 80% the price and I don't ever really make shakes, i usually cook with it so i'd rather add my own flavouring. Kind of annoying making like banana bread with it and only have chocolate and coconut whey.

I'd mix plain with juice but it's too much sugar.I used to make shakes with ground oatmeal, Orange juice, vanilla whey, and eggs. It was great till I got sick off eggs. Better without eggs, but plain whey would have worked here too. It was a decent gainer that has a bunch of cals and held hunger between lunch and an evening workout.

Side note: has anyone done much boxing? There's a group on for a gym here and I might grab one for 10-20 sessions. Could be a blast.

Cardio or sparing? 

post #47604 of 57266

Yeh, I used to do boxing for cardio. No matter how good your conditioning is it will kick your ass for the first few sessions. It's just one of those things that you can't really "prep" for without actually doing it.

Boxing is awesome cardio...I miss it. My apt gym used to have a bag, but it's mysteriously gone. My regular gym doesn't have one. I need a new gym.

As said above, it will kick your ass. Plus you feel badass for doing it. Beats the bike (my second fav form of cardio) any day.

Just FYI, the human body can not digest and make use of the protein in raw eggs. 

So much for that whole Rocky/ old bodybuilding culture thing of drinking raw eggs...

post #47607 of 57266
Humans CAN use the protein from raw eggs, but the amount of protein that is processed by the food is roughly 80% more if you cook it. If you want the most protein from your eggs (and your macros to be right), cook them, but don't think that drinking them will mean you'll get 0 protein from it.

After ingestion of the cooked egg protein meal, a substantial quantity of nitrogen was recovered in the ileal effluent over 24 h. The calculated yield of endogenous nitrogen (i.e., 0.40 g N) was close to the yield of 0.55 g N obtained by other researchers after ingestion of 17 g of pea protein (Gausserès et al. 1994). The calculated true ileal digestibility of cooked egg protein amounted to 91%. This finding demonstrates that even cooked egg protein, which has generally been considered to be easily digestible, is malabsorbed to some extent after ingestion of a physiologic load. Incomplete assimilation of dietary protein may have important consequences not only from a nutritional point of view, but also from a gastrointestinal point of view. Indeed, some metabolites resulting from bacterial fermentation of malabsorbed proteins in the colon have been implicated in the ethiopathogenesis of diseases such as colonic cancer and ulcerative colitis (Macfarlane and Cummings 1991, Pitcher and Cummings 1994, Visek 1978). It has already been reported extensively that food processing can influence protein digestibility both beneficially and detrimentally (Öste 1991). Egg white protein is generally considered to be less digestible than heat-pretreated egg white protein. However, no data are available concerning the magnitude of this impairment in vivo. In this study, it was shown that after ingestion of 25 g of raw egg protein, almost 50% is malabsorbed over 24 h. The higher digestibility of cooked egg protein presumably results from structural changes in the protein molecule induced by heating, thereby enabling the digestive enzymes to gain broader access to the peptide bonds. It has been suggested that the reduced digestibility of raw egg white is at least partially related to the presence of trypsin inhibitors in raw egg white (Matthews 1990).

They say no data is available for in vivo, but it's pretty reasonable at this point to note that you can digest raw egg protein.

Isn't there also something about raw egg blocking B6 funciton so that certain vitmains/minerals are not absorbed and can lead to deficiency?

Yeah it can happen

Shit, misread the Chipotle chicken recipe and put the actual Chipotle peppers (seeds out) along with the sauce (I am slow cooking it vs marinade and grill). Hopefully it's still edible and not ridiculously spicy.
