Body Beast on a Budget
Body Beast on a Budget
1/23/13 11:00 PM
I am getting ready to start Body Beast, but I'm curious about the supplements that are suggested for the program. I know that with P90X there were substitutes that you could make or find to what beach body was selling, which with all do respect, is sometimes over priced. When I was on P90X I used my own whey protein that I would buy in bulk, and created a recovery formula using creatine and a little bit of Gatorade. With Beast, it seems different. I already have creatine, but what about the base shake, fuel shot, and suma? Would the whey protein I already have be a suitable substitute for the base shake? What about the fuel shot and suma? Kinda working on a budget here.

You can find Suma alternative on amazon or on vitacost and any other webiste like those. They are the same.

Max Creatine is creatine monohydrate. So it is the same thing sold everywhere.

Fuel shot and Base shake are basically whey protein and carbs. Base shake is a whey protein with bcaa like glutamin and l-arginine mix and fuel shot is a carbs (Maltodextrin and dextrose) mix.

Personnaly i don't use them, i like my Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey which is basically the same.

Well, I think I found a Suma alternative that is reasonably priced, as well as a Maltodextrin based carb mix than can substitute for the Fuel Shot. As for the Hardcore Base Shake, I may just stick with that for now, just because I want to try and get the macros just right as described in the book.

Sorry Ddanmob, i didn't saw your reply before.

I take my whey protein shake post-workout and i usually eat a banana and/or oatmeal with it for carbs.

Write me a private message and i will tell you about a protein/carbs supplement that i also use.
