So I just received my Beast Sports Supplement package today which means I got them pretty quick! I had signed up for them Oct 17th and received 5 business days later.
I didn't get 2 of each like I originally thought but maybe I just misread what I was supposed to receive. Anyhow here's a pic of what came in the mail:

Bulking Progress Pics - 4 Weeks

It's bulking time!
Bulking has been going well so far with my aesthetic bulking plan. Although I feel like I've gained a lot of body fat, the scale and mirror say differently. Obviously, I've gained some fat, but I've managed stay lean and still see my abs. My strength is increasing in the gym on all lifts and I feel awesome.

My weight is currently fluctuating between 168 lbs and 173lbs. My 168 lbs is after a no carb/cardio day and 173 lbs after three straight weightlifting/carb days. 

When I started I was at 164 lbs so that means I've gained 4 lbs thus far which is right on track with what I set out to do...gain 1 lb a week.

Happy that I can still see my abs :)

As far as if the T2-Xtreme did anything, it is difficult for me to tell. Though I have stayed lean during this bulk, I'm not sure if I can contribute it to the intermittent fasting, my low carb days, the T2 or the combination of all of those things. 

What I do know is that the effects are not significant enough for me to notice and so I would not purchase this product again. 

Now that these 4 weeks are over, I'm going to start the Anabeta and use it for the next 8 weeks. I'm excited to see how my body will respond to the Anabeta!

How is everyone else's bulk going?

Christmas tree still present :)

Syntha-6 Decadence Bar Review

If you've ever had BSN's Syntha-6 Protein powders before, then you know BSN makes one of the most delicious protein shakes in the world :)

The company recently came out with their own meal replacement bar named Syntha-6 Decadence bars. I don't normally eat or use protein bars but I really wanted to try this one out to see if it was as delicious as the protein shakes they produce.

The flavor I tried was the Chocolate Caramel Pretzel so my review will be based on that flavor only.

Very decadent looking

One bar contains 350 calories consisting of 30 grams of protein, 9 grams of fat, and 44 grams of carbohydrates with 18 of those grams coming from sugar alcohols. The rest of the carbohydrates come from 1 gram of fiber and 13 grams of sugar. 

The nutrition profile isn't exactly healthy but neither are many of the protein bars out there. These protein bars definitely wouldn't be good to use on a cut but would be something more likely used during a bulk.

The bar was extremely sticky and chewy but I guess that's to be expected when it involves caramel. It was moist from beginning to end and I never felt any dryness while chewing it so that's a plus. The pretzel pieces also added a nice crunch to contrast with the chewiness...I only wish there were more pretzel pieces. I would rate the texture as excellent.

The bar was a little on the sweeter side but not too sweet for me. The dominant flavor I tasted from the bar was caramel, with a slight bitterness from the chocolate. My mouth felt the crunch from the pretzel pieces but I would have liked more pretzel flavor, and probably just more and bigger pieces of pretzel to lessen sweetness of the caramel. The typical aftertaste that you get with most protein bars was in this one as well. I would rate the taste as just good.

Inside the had melted a bit from shipping :(
I have to say the Syntha-6 Decadence bar was good...but I was hoping for better. My expectations of the bar were high due to my experience with their awesome protein shakes but unfortunately, the bar did not live up to the expectations. 

Not to say that the bar wasn't good, because it was...I was just expecting to be blown away which didn't happen. In comparison, when I first tried the Quest protein bars, I was wowed by these bars. So Quest protein bars are still my favorite protein bar and the best tasting bars in the world :)

Anybody have any suggestions of any other bars for me to try? Anything better than Quest protein bars?

Today Is The Day We Stop Making Excuses

This is a great new campaign started by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota, in which they want people to tell themselves "Today is the day we stop making excuses!"

In the commercial they portray the fat and obese doing "lazy" things such as sleeping on the couch and taking the elevator, while they are singing about how they will start exercising and taking the stairs TOMORROW. How many times have we heard that excuse from people in our own lives, and even from ourselves?

When I first saw the commercial I thought, "Wow, this is awesome! I love that they are portraying fat people the way they really are!"

I'm a little surprised this commercial hasn't become a target of pro-fat organizations such as NAAFA. (I'm totally against the organization by the way. Even though the United States seems to be headed this way, being fat should not be accepted as normal and healthy because it is not!)

Perhaps there has not been much attention for the commercial because it is only shown locally here in Minnesota. I hope the commercial goes nationwide so that it inspires people to stop making excuses and make a change!

And if not that, hopefully it gets some attention and companies start making more commercials like this where they are not afraid to be politically incorrect and call out the fat and obese.

So help spread the word on this great commercial by sharing it on your facebooks, twitter, forums, and blogs.
