Detailed bodybuilder
 
If you consider yourself detailed and don't own a digital food scale. Invest in one. Not just for your food but also for your supplements. Protein powders are a bad one for the "serving scoops".

There are way to many variables with this and a lot of companies put a over sized scoop with a serving line on it knowing we just scoop and dump what the scoop holds.

This does 2 things. Over serving dose and makes you go threw more of the product.

Whats a level scoop? Level to the top or the line?
Whats a heaping scoop?
Whats a rounded scoop?

Start weighting your liquid and powdered sups and see how much longer they last.

I measure and weigh my food, but i dont weigh to the last gram in a bulk, but in prep every calorie counts!

Chocolate has negative calories right? :D

lol Thats why till now I never logged I take 5g's pure 100% natural cocoa pre and 5g's post w/o's for the antioxidants, People would jump on the refined crap thinking its the same. lol

5g 100% pure baking cocoa is 15 cals, 3 carbs, 0 sat fat, 1 pro.
and over 10,000 anti's (1/2 cup Blueberries is little over 2,000)

I guaranty you that them Girl Scout chocolate cookies are more. lol

^5 yep bulk is play time but every gram counts to reach your best conditioning in show prep. Thats 75% of the Competitive Bodybuilding sport.

Dark chocolate is the closes to pure cocoa. Don't jack insolent levels like other chocolates. Cutting I will even work Hershey Special Dark Nuggets with almonds into my diet once a week.

2nd best for anti's next to pure cocoa and high in Zinc.

Special dark is all I will eat when I cheat. Less refined, no milk sugars.

Only takes 1/2 as much to satisfy a sweet tooth. :rockon:

Cocoa and Dark chocolate just got a bad rap just like fats because of it being a sweet and over ate by 99.9% of the population.

If you are looking at it I recommend going with pure baking cocoa and just mix it in a drink or food to take the bitterness away. 1 serving is 5g's. I'd never do more than 1 serving at a time. Thats plenty, it equals 5 cups of blue berries for the anti's.
