OK so there is a bunch of weird shit in here that probably does nothing, as well as some gross preservatives and colors (which are probably harmless) but I have used this product for over 10 years and it does give a good boost and has a favorable macronutrient profile to facilitate recovery: just add 12 almonds to make it zone (about 4 blocks)

6AM 1 cup milk = 1 block

8AM 4 oz ribs, 1/2 lb green beans with sauce = 2 blocks

1PM 1/2 Muscle Milk Bar = 2 blocks

4PM Cato's Bacon Cheeseburger, with part of bun removed, beer, salad = 5 blocks, 1x fat, extra carb

7PM Beef with Green Beans = 4 blocks

Block Target = 16 blocks

Block Total = 14 blocks, .3x fat, extra carb
