REVIEW: True Nutrition ModCarb™

This came in the mail the week before I left for Ohio.  It arrived with a few other items that I didn't get to try before I left, but this one couldn't wait.  I'd been looking at ModCarb™ for a possible pre-workout.  Since True Nutrition has a custom generator that allows you to make your perfect formula, I was looking to put together a pre-workout with 10% protein and around 90% carbohydrate.  I didn't just want something that would burn off fast or give me jitters (sugars).  ModCarb™ is fitting my needs perfectly.

Reviews coming soon of the other bags seen here!

I LOVE how this works as a pre-workout.  I use this in my morning coffee before work and I feel amazing until my break.  No crashing and no jitters, just pure energy.  It translates into my workouts too.  I love how it feels when this kick ins.  I don't feel shaky or jittery, just ready to do some work!  It's really perfect.  I've tried several pre-workouts that made me feel dizzy, jittery, or even like I was going to throw up.

The flavor on it is great and the texture is perfect.  It's totally soluble and the texture adds something to my coffee that I can't explain.  It definitely gives it more of that thick latte texture I was looking for.  It absorbed easily in water, coffee, and in soymilk.  I use a Blender Bottle™.  The flavor I got was the TrueFlavor™ Vanilla Cake Batter and it is delicious.  Nothing fake or synthetic tasting, it just tastes exactly like what you'd expect from a Vanilla Cake Batter.  Even though it's a dessert flavor by definition, it's not cloyingly sweet; for those of you who hate overly sweet powders, you'll love this flavor option.  It's sweetened with Stevia.
