Predator Nutrition Real Carbs Review

The Rich Piana 5% Philosophy

Rich Piana's 5% Nutrition line, indeed the entire Rich Piana philosophy is about being one of the 5% of people who are able to commit to their goals and actually follow through to their conclusion rather than starting something and quitting. For many bodybuilders training is fun but sticking to a nutritious, muscle building diet is the hard part. In this respect Piana has long been a vociferous advocate for getting calories from real food as opposed to shakes so it is no surprise to see that 5% Nutrition Real Carbs is a different kind of a meal replacement to most.

Real Carbs Rich in Nutrients

Real Carbs utilises a blend of four foods, pounded yam, oats, sweet potato and blueberry fruit. Together these yield a number of benefits:

  • They are rich in micronutrients such as vitamins, antixoidants, minerals, phytonutrients and much more. Compared to a supplement which uses carbohydrates such as sugars, Real Food has a vastly greater nutrient profile so that not just body composition but overal health is optimised.
  • The blend of foods in Real Food deliver carbohydrates to your muscles but do so while keeping blood sugar stable helping to avoid issues with fast acting carbs such as rebound hunger and wildly fluctuating insulin levels that in the long run can have detrimental effects both on your physique and health (poor carbohydrate management being linked to diabetes).
  • There are no artifical additives like you will sometimes see in meal replacement type products meaning no artificial sweeteners or extra synthetically sourced vitamins.

At its heart Real Food is a convenient way to source the benefits of the different foods in its blend without the hassle of having to clean, and cook them yourself. 

Real Carbs vs Traditional Gainers/Carb Powders

Rich Piana has always believed in real food sources so when it comes to comparing this to the sugar based weight gainer or pure carbohydrate products available today Real Carbs stands out as a cut above through its use of healthy foods rather than empty calories from sugar. Not only does Real Carbs provide you with vitamins, minerals and electrolytes but the carbs found in Real Carbs are broken down slowly so that the energy you get is sustained over a long period of time making it perfect for recovery as well as performance.

One product which does resemble Real Carbs more closely is Blackstone Labs Fast Food. The key difference is the latter provides you with two organic protein sources but with Real Carbs you can easily combine it with any protein of your choice plus it has the dual benefit of avoiding artificial sweeteners and also includes the superfood blueberry powder.

How to use Real Carbs

Real Carbs is an extremely versatile product which can be combined with a protein, or else consumed by itself. It makes a good post-workout as well as being a perfect carbohydrate based carb loading supplement (where you consume carbohydrates to promote enhanced glycogen storage with a view to enhancing training performance).

Last but not least, the taste of Real Carbs has won a lot of acclaim so this is one food based supplement that is a real treat.
