Book of Beast nutrition typos
Showing 1 - 20 of 73 results.
Items per Page
Page of 4
Looks like we have a few typos in the Book of Beast, largely centering around the carbs and proteins in our Fuel Shot and Base Shake supplements.

While these mistakes may seem substantial, they’re not. The Body Beast Nutrition Plan features thousands of calories. When building mass, a smart, high caloric plan like this basically guarantees you are getting all the protein, carbs, and fat you need, so slight shifts in those macronutrients shouldn’t have an impact. Basically, we’re talking changes along the lines of an egg white worth of protein or a couple grapes of carbs at the most. You’ll get big and stay healthy regardless of shifts that minor.

That said, we want to give you the best possible product for your investment. Furthermore, we know that many of you like to take a hands-on approach to the math aspect of your diet, so we want you to have the most accurate numbers to do that.

Page 71 –

For the recovery recipes, make that ONE scoop of Fuel Shot to one scoop of Base Shake (instead of 2:1).

You may notice that this creates a ratio slightly below the 3:1 protein:carbs we mention earlier on the page. This is okay for two reasons. First, ease-of use. This balanced combination is easy to mix and, if you’re using these two supplements solely as a recovery aid, this recipe will make both tubs a one-month supply.

Second, both Fuel Shot and Base Shake are unflavored. While drinking them alone is effective nutrition, it’s not as delicious as, say, Beachbody Results & Recovery Formula, so we’re assuming you’ll want to flavor your Body Beast postworkout drink with something from the liquid carbs list. By keeping the initial ratio low, we’ve given you much more flexibility with your flavoring options.

Under BEACHBODY HARDCORE BASE SHAKE:

Each serving (1 scoop) has 18 grams of whey protein and 9 grams of maltodextrin + dextrose. It’s low-fat and has 130 calories per serving.

Change this to: Each serving (1 scoop) has 18 grams of protein and 11 grams of maltodextrin + dextrose. It’s low-fat and has 120 calories per serving.

Under BEACHBODY FUEL SHOT:

Each serving (2 scoops) has 45 grams of dextrose + maltodextrin and 5 grams of whey protein. It’s also low-fat, and has 200 calories per serving.

Change this to: Each serving (1 scoop) has 47 grams of dextrose + maltodextrin and 5 grams of whey protein. It’s also low-fat, and has 210 calories per serving.

We've also worked Beachbody Fuel Shot into the Beas Eating Plan: 2 scoops per day, to be exact.

Thanks for the info! I think I'll shoot for 330 calories of P90X results and recovery from now on until I can afford the base + fuel shot. Good correction!

My coach David and I saw this at the coach summit amidst all the chaos in the showroom lol.

Ugh wish I knew this before I started. I've been using 2 scoops which means I will run out sooner than I should. Not Cool! An insert stating this correction when the supplements came would have been nice.

RIcardo -

Use a little fruit juice instead to finish out your month. It's not as optimal, in that fructose doesn't absorb as fast, but it'll work in a pinch.

-This is a little confusing to me still maybe someone on here can clarify further. So instead of using 2 scoops of fuel shot and 1 scoop of hardcore base shake, for post workout shake, you use 1 scoop fuel shot and 2 scoops of Hardcore base shake? Thank You!

So then on Page 57 meal plan example should be:

Post Workout Shake:
1 Optional Carb Liquid Serving for Flavor
1 Scoop Hardcore Base Shake;
1 Scoop Fuel Shot;
2 Scoops M.A.X Creatine

Correct?

Thanks!! :-)

Anyone else have recommendations on nutrition throughout the day. I am having a heck of a time matching up portions with foods and trying to figure out how I will do it on a daily basis. This is what I have so far! I would post a pic but it won't let me.

http://harrincc.blogspot.com/2012/07/pre-body-beast-prep-work-step2.html

Any help would be greatly appreciated as it seems like this is the most time consuming part for me and I have spent a lot of time on it!

Thank you all!

I'm sorry but this explanation does not make sense. One scoop of fuel shot is 25-30g and the nutrition label says that a serving is 55g. okay. and you state that a serving is 45g carbs + 5 grams protein... which makes me think that the 55g number is correct.

This is way more than one scoop... it comes out to about 2 X 3/4 scoops.

Please clarify as I have been really nailing the diet minus this potential, quite large oversight.

I noticed that in the Book of Beast they say that the timing of your nutrients through the day will change along with the amount of food you eat during the Beast Phase. However, I did not find anywhere that actually referenced these changes. Are they addressed in the book and I just missed it or are they missing?

7/24/12 12:09 PM as a reply to AdStaffDenis.
Let me ask you guys something about the Fuel Shot and Base Shake. As you know, the book said 2 scoops of Fuel Shot, 1 of Base Shake. People complained that they would run out of Fuel Shot halfway through the month. A couple of weeks after the program came out, Beachbody made a correction saying that it was an error, that you should mix 1 scoop of Fuel Shot and 1 of Base Shake.

Well, when I received my order of both (same tub size), my Fuel Shot had WAY more powder than my Base Shake. I would say double the powder. If it's double the powder, it stands to say that it lasts 30 days at 2 scoops a day. Do you think all those who complained, and Beachbody, might have jumped the gun early on making that correction. I will know after 30 days if my theory of the Fuel Shot having double the amount is right, but what do you guys think? Or was my Fuel Shot tube an exception?

Could it be that the Fuel Shot had an original amount of powder for 2 scoops a day?

I'm guessing you feel that the fuel shot scoop is 25-30g because it's the same size as the base shake scoop. Remember, grams are a measure of weight, not volume. Fuel Shot is quite a bit more dense than Base Shake, so the same size scoop is going to weigh more.

And I actually wrote 47g carbs + 5 g protein, which is correct - the total macronutrient grams in a serving don't always equal the total grams in a serving. There are other nutrients, ingredients at play in that number.

Does that make sense?
