    Primal Fuel

    Has anyone tried this protein powder Mark made? Is it any good?

    Too expensive, IMO. That's the only thing holding me back from trying it.

    I have and I liked the taste of the vanilla more than the chocolate. I also learned that one of the ingredients (the powdered coconut I think) doesn't agree with me. It would be a great dessert or treat once in a while if you can handle it.

    Eh. If I'm going to have a "treat", it will be something better than a protein shake. I like the idea of a meal replacement -- I miss having something that's really easy to drink on the run.

    I mix up my own protein shakes when I want one. I use whey, an egg or two, some milk, a splash of vanilla, and a little stevia sometimes. I generally won't just drink a meal though. I'll have some homemade beef jerky or something so I get something solid along with it. I'm not a fan of all liquid meals. Homemade beef jerky is an awesome on the go meal.

    I was not impressed with the flavor. It seems to rely more on sweetener than, y'know, flavor.
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    It's pretty good. I only just started getting it, so I'll have to wait a month or two to see if I eat it often enough to warrant keeping it.
    I do enjoy it, but it's not something I crave. I usually fast through breakfast, but sometimes I'm really hungry and want something fast.
    It's handy to have a sweet something to snack on that you can prepare quickly.

    I want to try it, but it’s whey (LOL) overpriced. Then again, so are many of the other protein powders on the market these days. I drink Body Fortress whey protein when I want a shake- it’s only $15 for a 2 lb container and available at most local grocery, drug, and health food stores, and it has impressive protein/vitamin/mineral/bcaa content.
    But as another poster mentioned I don’t drink it as a standalone meal- I eat something with it.

    It fits my lifestyle. I work 60 hrs a week and don't want to get up at 4:30 and cook eggs. I also drive all day and rarely have time for a lunch break. I use it as a meal replacement for breakfast and lunch and as the picture shows I don't need to skip lunch. I Lost 11 pounds my first 8 days on the stuff and didn't get hungry at all between meals.

    Now for the bad news. I knew going in that this stuff was expensive, but I figured at 30 servings per container it was still cheaper than a drive-thru McMuffin breakfast and Royal with Cheese lunch. Problem is I only got 16 - 2 scoop servings out of my container. I emailed customer service and still haven't received a reply of any kind. I called customer service on Wednesday and was told they would try and send me another container but have not received it or any kind of shipping confirmation yet.

    Love the product but frankly, I'm a bit disappointed in the service. Going to GNC today to look for an alternative.

    I like shakeology. It`s not completely Primal I don`t think though. It is nutritious though. It is also pricey if you think of the total cost but if you think of it as a meal replacement it factors in at about 4 bucks a meal. If you want more info go to www.shakeology.com/fatbusters
