* I have been drinking the shake for a few years. Convenient, good tasting even at room temperature. Allows me to have some additional food - ie good carbs in the morning - and get quick protein.
This review is specific to Myoplex Carb Control Ready-to-Drink Shake 11 fl oz, French Vanilla
* According to information obtained from the EAS company website, "Carb Sense was developed to help meet the needs of fitness enthusiasts striving to lean and tone...(and).. provides a blend of premium proteins including the highly touted soy protein isolate." I agree--it's a great product, and I truly enjoy Carb Sense because it is not filling, and makes a perfect pre or post workout snack.
Whenever I hit the gym, I usually trip or fall off the treadmill a number of times, as my feet are flat and I have trouble staying in the middle of the belt. Sometimes, I also have been known to inadvertantly hit the "increase speed" button when I am getting into the Springer show on the overhead monitors--and get up to 14 mph!-- which is hard to keep pace with. I've wacked myself pretty good when this happens, believe you me!
Also through the course of my three hours at the gym, I usually get hit in the head at least once with a 25 pound medicine ball (my trainer has an odd sense of humor!).
I have never attributed these mishaps to ingesting a Myoplex Carb Sense Ready-to-Drink Shake, nor will I ever. It would be another matter if the product caused me to cramp or affected my equilibrium. My issues are my own, but this is a product I will continue to order via Netrition and recommend highly!
