  • Hi there, thanks so much to all of you for your hard work in everyway. I just recently bought carb nite and love it. I am interested in healthy, organic foods mostly, but I am very confused about sucralose. It is hailed as a toxic poison in the natural, green food industry and you seem to be fie with it. Why would they not want us to consume it? Thanks everyone! I love to workout to these podcasts!

  • I can’t find the GNC PM vanilla caramel protein powder you recommend in some of your recipes in the CNS. What else do you recommend to use in its place?

    • That product was discontinued. Just about any Whey protein powder will do, though finding the caramel flavored ones might be difficult. Vanilla flavored Whey protein powder can substitute for those recipes and they are easier to find.

  • Excellent items from you, man. I’ve have in mind your stuff prior to and you’re simply too fantastic.
