Most GNC type stores have them. Also most gyms will carry them too.

If you can't find one in the next few days, give me a mailing address and I'll hook you up.

Some heath food stores may carry them too, but mostly your gym/fitness/vitamin/supplement shops is where you'll find them.

I think you get one free with every purchase of protein powder at almost all online stores.

Yeah Dogg - most of those kind of stores should have them, but like I said, I can get one to you within 3 days if you can't find one.

Have a great time in the blue skies! We're flooding out here. I couldn't even drive out to my mother's house. That road was flooded over near the bridge. :shock:

Later bro,

Rob

That's one thing i noticed about US food products - it's always labeled how much servings there are and nutrition valuess per serving. But not nutrition values per 100g and gram per box!
That's really confusing to calulate each time when you want to compare prices. "This one is 33 servings 30gram each, but this on is 45 servings 25gram each.... which is more? And which is cheaper, when one is 21$ and the other 23?" You get the idea :P
Also, i think it's easier to calculate your food intkae if the nutrition values are per 100g. I seldom eat the suggested amount per serving as one serving ;)

Sorry for the little rant :roll:

i dont understand a word you said. i cant mentally follow all that.
all i know is this stuff is good for its price.
i also dont understand percentages. like when someone says "this is 33% proten"....I'm like "uhh how many grams of protein is that?"

Okay, here is an explanation :D :

Let us take a product. We'll call it Topher's Vegan Jerky. Assume our hypothetical vegan jerky has 100 calories in total, and the jerky says on it that it is 40% protein. How many grams of protein is that?

When something is say 40% protein, what that means is that 40% of the item's calories come from protein.

So, applying this to our hypothetical vegan jerky, 40% of its 100 calories are protein calories. (100 calories x 40% = 40). So 40 of the 100 total calories are protein calories.

To figure out how many GRAMS of protein that is, you simply have to remember that one gram of protein is equal to 4 calories.

So, if 1 gram of protein= 4 protein calories, how many grams of protein in 40 protein calories?

To figure that out simply take 40 divided by four = 10.

So in other words, in our hypothetical vegan jerky that says it is 40% protein, the amount of protein it has in grams is 10 grams of protein.

You can figure out the amount of carbs and fats in the same way. You just need to remember that:

One gram of carbs = 4 calories also.
Fat is more calorie dense. One gram of fat = 9 calories.

So to combine all the above info into one equation, it would be:

item's total calories multiplied by the percent of protein it says divided by the number 4 = grams in proteins.


All this reminds me of the days I used to painstakingly calculate the macronutrient ratio and calories of every morcel of food I used to consume. I was rather hardcore then about training and nutrition.

Hope that helps. By the way, I have LOTS of shaker cups (which I have never used because I always always always blend my shakes in a blender with ice). If you still want some, let me know.

**** looks like compash has more uses than than just making a pair of stilettos look good :P :P :P :P ********

actually compash that isnt correct.

when an item says that it is 40% protein it means that 40% of the weight of it is protein.

for instance - pumpkin seeds are 25% protein and about 50% fat. they have around 600cal per 100g, with 100cal coming from protein. this doesnt however mean they are 16.8% protein.

hope that makes sense - honestly you north americans - sometimes i think you just do stuff differently for the sake of it!! :P
