    Plant Fusion is pretty good. I recommend the cookies and cream flavor. The chocolate raspberry taste kind of fake. I've seen the 2 pound tube going for $33 online. Nutra Fusion, the company that makes the powder, also has another supplement called Phood. This one is more comparable to Fuel and Vega One as it is not just a protein powder. But it also is a little more expensive. It's new, so I haven't tried it yet.

    Of course, there are sample sizes in most upscale food stores and vitamin shops if you want to try it out.

    Most of them are on the life section.
    I personally like the mocha chocolate one. Or just get a bag of mixed frozen berries and throw a few in when I want something quick.

    I agree that the formula should be changed so it isn't so thick and wouldn't require a blender all time.

    I stopped getting Fuel because I can't use my blender bottle with it.

    You can eat those things provided it that the item doesn't have any of the other five problem ingredients. Pasta is pretty easy as for cookies and other snacks that might be a tall order. I seem to always find soy lecithin in everything. The food could be clear of every thing else except soy. Sugar contain is also difficult if you're for a sweet with less than 5 grams unless it as stevia or xylitol.

    I agree with Joey. I'm also doing TBT. I can't do as many reps without taking a breather so I take way more breaks than what's prescribed in the video. For that reason, I don't even do the Speed Control videos at all. I tried it once and injured myself trying to keep pace. In this video, your break length depends on how quickly you can get through the round. I don't like the feeling of getting penalized for be weak and slow. I'm not at that level yet when I would welcome the challenge so for now I do another video whenever Speed Control pops up.

    I do get frustrated the next day when my mind is all fired up to the training and my body is like "um, no". Sometimes, I just power through. Other times if I'm really hurting,especially in my knees because there's a lot leg work in these videos, I switch the recovery day with the workout.

    All the TBT videos work out the same group of muscles and gets to be too much for a noob like me to do them. The key is to not let it get to you too much. I figured, yeah I'm terrible now but I should have my act together during the 3rd or 4th go at the program.

    Of course, it all depends on what you want out of this. I think the whole point of DailyBurn is to try to mold whatever they have to fit your needs. There's no point in trying to stick to a program if it's a chore to do it.

    TBT is really challenging the next step up is Inferno. Cardio Sculpt more gradual and less stressful because of its program length. I tried that one but quit after the first month because I don't have the equipment for the later videos.

    I haven't tried Intelliburn but I get the feeling is like Cardio Sculpt but not as rigidly defined.

    Of course, there's always True Beginner. Although, it didn't give me enough of a challenge. I did like how it eases you into a routine of exercising if you coming off sedentary lifestyle.

    Yes, but during the Balance phrase it's going to be a point deduction for each serving of dairy

    papercut2k answered the Question: Daily Burn Fuel aftertaste?

    No, Fuel doesn't have a grassy taste. To me, it tastes good when blended with fruit, coffee, cocoa. I only tried the chocolate flavor though. Fuel does same to thicken the smoothie though it may be because of the 2 scoop serving size. Vega is available in the States as well. It doesn't an overpowering taste so it blends well with everything.

    Yeah, I do. I guess you have to be patient with yourself. The thing is the people in workout videos are physically fit people. Me not so much, so it's difficult to keep pace no matter how hard I try. Also, I'm not very coordinated, so moves requiring arms and legs to work unison, throw me for a loop. It is frustrating when I have to take more breaks than whatever is prescribed in the video, The way I see it, I'll get there eventually if I keep trying and so will you if you keep at it. :)

    I work at Whole Foods and people absolutely love the Harmless brand raw coconut water. It's cold pressed and doesn't have anything added to it. It's also super expensive (hint: don't buy online) but that doesn't deter people from buying cases of it. One time we were out for three months and I literally saw a woman shaking as if she going into withdrawals as she came in every day searching for the stuff.

    Yes. As long as it doesn't have too much add sugar. I used to eat Red Mill Gluten Free Oatmeal and add cinnamon and a few apple pieces.

    No. I'm not sure why though. It's not an evil six. I guess the only thing bad about it is the cholesterol but I don't see how eating a few eggs a week is supposed to be that bad.

    I guess they are trying to ween you off eggs?

    Did you try it in a smoothie? Fuel is not the kind of protein powder you can drink straight up with just milk.

    The fruit enhances the taste and helps with the grittiness

    Agreed. Most of the time the movements are simple enough but other times I have to waste ten or so seconds to watch just because the instructor says "oh we're doing the same thing for x rounds you'll pick it up." I injure my lower back for a few days because I didn't do sprawls correctly. :/

    papercut2k answered the Question: How many workouts can you use with no equipment

    I understand your problem. I too finished True Beginners in early January and went on to TBT because I don't the money to spare for equipment. I did get a foam roller. I thought I could do without it but it is necessary. My muscles wouldn't loosen up even after a couple of days of rest.

    TBT requires no equipment with the exception of level 2 and 3 in Tabata 2 but TBT is pretty difficult. The first month of Cardio Sculpt suggests hands weights but you don't have to use them for level 1.

    I don't know about the other ones. I guess Move and Yoga shouldn't require anything.
