Welcome to my Carnivor protein powder review!
If you are on this page, most probably, you are looking for information about Musclemeds Carnivor beef protein powder, and most importantly, you would like to hear from a person who actually tried this product and want to see whether it helps to build muscle mass or not.
Alright, if so, then, my friend, you have come to the right place because, in this article, I will tell you how this beef protein supplement has helped me to put on around 18 kilos (!) of lean muscle mass.
First of all, let’s get to know what is this product all about?
So, Carnivor is a brand of MuscleMeds American company that specializes in high-quality sports nutrition.
MuscleMeds has been around for over 10 years now and all their products are third-party tested by Informed-Choice.org.
Carnivor is a protein powder that has been extracted from a pure beef source, and therefore, it contains a great deal of anabolic muscle-building amino acids.
I myself got to know about this product when I was living in France.
At those times, I met a French guy Luke who later became my friend and actually he introduced me to this Carnivor beef protein powder.
He is a professional culturist and he was consuming Carnivor and seeing great results out of it.
He knew that I am practicing bodybuilding very actively and recommended to try this product. The results I got simply amazed me!
Beef meat is one of the most recommended foods for athletes, but I personally don’t really like to eat beef and that is why when Luke recommended me to try Carnivor beef protein powder, I said: “This is what will help me to replenish my lack of consuming beef meat!”.
Let’s take a look at the supplement’s content to see what exactly MuscleMeds Carnivor protein powder contains:
As you can see yourself, Carnivor beef protein powder delivers 50 g of proteins per serving, which is a way more than many other beef protein powders out there.
This fact solely makes this protein powder really powerful in terms of muscle-building properties.
Besides that, Carnivor beef protein powder is loaded with Creatine monohydrate, L-Glutamine, BCAAs (L-leucine, L-Isoleucine, and L-Valine), but honestly, along with Carnivor, I was taking creatine additionally.
Among other things, Carnivor protein powder delivers 125 carbs, 3 g of dietary fiber, and 720 calories per serving.
The good news is that it doesn’t contain sugars, cholesterol, it’s gluten-free, lactose-free, and GMO-free.
- 350% More Concentrated than Beef Steak and More Concentrated than Whey Isolate;
- Larger Amount of Protein per Serving;
- Loaded with Creatine monohydrate, BCAAs, and L-Glutamine;
- Sourced from Hydrolyzed Beef Protein Isolate (which is considered to be the most quality and the purest form);
- Free from Sugars, Cholesterol, GMO and gluten;
- Doesn’t Contain Dairy Products and for this reason, it is Perfect for People Suffering from Lactose Intolerance;
- Mixes Perfectly, even in a Shaker Bottle;
- Taste is Better than Other Protein Powders I have Tried; I used the Chocolate Fudge flavor and yes, it tastes a little sweet, but still, the taste is acceptable;
- Carnivor is Available in different Flavors so that anyone can find a product according to his own liking and taste. These flavors are Chocolate Fudge, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Vanilla Caramel, Strawberry.
- Carnivor is Available in Different Package Sizes: 6 lbs (14 servings), 10 lbs (25 servings), and 15 lbs. I find this thing great as it allows to choose the right package size according to the fitness goal, as well as budget.
- No Unflavored Version of this Product;
- No Money-Back Guarantee Provided.
If we’ll take the cost of one serving of Carnivor beef protein powder, we’ll get around 3 bucks. Just think this way: 3 bucks to get 50 g of pure protein!
If you would go to get this amount of protein from the beefsteak, with the average amount of 20-25 g of protein per 100 g, you would need to eat 200-300 g of beefsteak at once.
This may not seem like a lot for someone who likes eating beef, but don’t forget that unlike Carnivor protein powder, 100 g of beefsteak brings along around 80-90 g of cholesterol and around 10-11 g of fats.
Now, I am not trying to hold you down from consuming beefsteak, not at all!
Just I want to say that in order to get that amount of protein that Carnivor delivers, you will have to eat around 500-600 g of beef daily, with the associated cholesterol and fat content.
Overall, I want to say that with the great results that this beef protein powder delivers, I think it’s a great value for the price if you’re looking to build muscle.
My Results with Carnivor Beef Protein Powder
Here are some pictures of mine after I have started consuming Carnivor:
It’s a pity that I didn’t take the before picture to show you the difference, but at those times, I haven’t even in mind to create a blog like this one.
Now, I will take care of taking more Before/After photos in the future.
I am a Mesomorph type of body with relatively low height (174 cm) and I was able to put on around 18 kg of lean muscle mass after about three months of consuming Carnivor beef protein powder.
I was taking one serving about 30 minutes prior to the workout, and one more serving a little after I have finished the training.
As I have mentioned above, I was taking Carnivor together with Creatine monohydrate.
If you are reading my blog, you probably may already know that I am crazy about working out, and generally, I workout six days a week.
Besides the protein supplementation, I follow a properly nutritious diet (this is not a problem for me since I am a real gourmand :).
I hope you have enjoyed reading this review about Carnivor protein powder. It is a great beef protein powder which I highly recommend to anyone looking to build muscle mass.
Even if you are working out fewer times a week than me, it is still possible to see the increase in muscle mass, with the proper diet and enough rest.
