I'm not familiar with the Carnivor powder, but I know that the primary source of protein in their Carnivor Shots is/was collagen, which is disgusting and very low quality protein. The shots' amino profile was due to the BCAA's they add to the product.

Collagen is about the most common and abundant connective tissue in mammals. It's in everything from skin and hair to nails, etc. In cows, collagen is also found in hooves and ears. Since the label doesn't specify, you could be mixing desiccated tongue in your shake for all you know. Or, maybe the next canister you purchase will contain some nice nose cartilage!

Technically, there is protein in collagen, but not the same quality you would find in the parts of the animal we usually serve for meals.


tongue is good... i picked up 2 beef tongues today for supper tomorrow...

Oh, I'm sure it's tasty. But, as far as its use in a protein supplement, I would expect other parts to yield a better value.

Have you ever tried scrapple?

as in mushed pork scraps with cornmeal & flour?   that's a big negative


cow tongue provides very high quality and complete protein on top of several nutrients and healthy saturated fat (let's not debate this... i'm drinking ATM)

Scrapple was one of my favorite "treat" foods growing up.
I still have it about 2-3 times per year and still love it just as much!

buy one (they are cheap)

simmer in water with salt for 30 minutes (do not boil, just simmer)

slit the underside of the tongue less than 1/4 inch deep length wise and peel off the skin (too tough to eat)

slice the remaining meat into 1/2 inch slices or pieces

you can then add it to a stir fry or grill lightly and serve with sauce or gravy

tastes amazing

Awesome!
I was going to ask you if it's tough or fibrous at all. That's my only gripe with a lot of venison - the membranes are often very tough to work with and eat.

Thanks!!

Monster mass is amaaaaaaazing. So many flavors all AWESOME... and fantastic profile of amino acids/etc... Def can act as a meal replacement too if in a rush. One serving is 600+~cals. Been hooked since last two years. However in last year or so i've been avoiding shakes as much as possible, recently got it again just out of convenience. I wish they had a 10lbs instead of the usual 5lbs

Im getting back into this and thinking of doing another show so I'm back in the game a little.

Met-Rx Choc was good - BUT THICK!

I think I also used that Perfect Nutrition MRE's which were like drinking mud.   


I've used Syntha in the past and was quite pleased with its taste, ease of mixing, and digestion. The price was also quite reasonable compared with other brands.

My only criticism is that it is on the high end in regards to calories and, especially, carbs. I did make some gains while using it, but those gains were not limited to muscle.

Also, I noticed a while back that the price of Syntha-6 has climbed a bit to more closely match it's competitors. For a commercial blend at that price, I'd be more inclined to go with Pro-Complex based on label claims. It's a leaner formula.

One of my buddies works PT for Vitamin World, who's parent company recently acquired Met-Rx. They are supposedly once again using the original Connelly Metamyosin formula in the RTD's, which would be a great thing since it was that blend that earned Met-Rx its place atop the supplement world for a time. According to my friend, the packets' taste and texture are just as they were when we used them years ago with good results.
It may be worth trying them again after all these years!

I'm currently using a custom blend of calcium caseinate, micellar casein, beef, and whole egg solids.
I usually mix it with whole milk and heavy cream.

Occasionally I'll go old-school and mix three scoops with six raw eggs and heavy cream, which makes more of a pudding, but I can adjust the consistency by adding more or less cream.
I don't advocate consuming raw eggs.

Ya man !

My buddy had good experiences with Dymatize's Gourmet blend. I just ordered a tub of Elite Fusion 7 to try. It looks like a nice lean formula, maybe comparable to Pro-Complex.

Yeah, and their prices are among the better I've seen for similar products.

I remember when BSN offered good prices, too. Then, they slowly crept up to match other, better quality proteins. That's when/why I stopped using Syntha-6. For only a few dollars more, I could get Optimum's best blend, which had fewer calories and carbs per serving. Undecided

Oh, I think it's a very good protein, especially for the price at which I used to get it. I paid around $38 for the big canister. I didn't mind the fat so much; it is mostly MCT's if I recall. But the calories and carbs weren't in the favorable range for me.

It was my "wintertime/fully-clothed season" protein. Smiley
Once their price soared to almost match Optimum's, I went back to using Pro-Complex regularly.
