Yes you can use a protein powder while using a fat burner.. this will help you burn fat while holding on to your muscle with the protein. Be sure to follow a weight loss diet and a cardio based workout plan.. you need to do the work.

Of course.. you eat protein daily with regular meals so it's no problem adding a protein shake if you don't have time to eat enough meals each day. Be sure to follow a high protein and low carb diet plan and add in cardio daily.

June 26, 2015
response by Jordy

Sometimes protien will do this to people.. you just don't respond well so I would suggest to stop unless you don't mind the acne. There are plenty of other protein powders out there today, and the beef ones are over-rated.

Sure, but taking 2 protein powders is not really needed. Stick with one, twice per day to judge the effects. Eat 3-4 healthy high protein meals per day as well and watch your gains improve.

"... My way in the use of the protein is after breakfast 1 scoop, before workout 1 scoop,
My question is how much scoops shoud i take afterwork out ??"


October 2, 2013
response by Nick

Do not use it after breakfast, that is a waste. Since you are eating breakfast, you are getting the nutrients you require so adding this on top of that is just not practical.

The best way to use this is 2-3 scoops POST-WORKOUT and then again before bed or as a replacement of a meal during the day.

Optimal use for optimal results is twice a day with 2-3 additional real food healthy meals.

Sara   Age: 16

"... My questions is.. I usually take the protein as a pre and post workout.. that means twice a day.. I want to ask is it fine to take the proten in the day which I do not workout?"


July 31, 2013
response by Sammy

If you take it pre-workout, make sure it's at leat an hour prior to training. But to answer your question, YES. You need to take protein everyday.

The key is to get in 1 gram of protien per 1 pound of body weight, at least. To gain muscle and strength, aim for 1.5 grams of protein instead. This should be divided in to 5-6 meals each day which can be shakes as well.

April 26, 2013

The best bet is to use Dark Matter for post workout. Use carnivor as a meal replacement instead. Or as a pre-workout protein shake as well.

Using both daily is OK and actually a good stack.

Is this ok?"


April 17, 2013
response by Paul

These tablets are a great way to increase your daily amino acid intake and help you improve your rate of muscle growth.

If you are using the tablets, you should only take 3 tablets, twice a day. I would suggest after your workouts and then again between meals.

February 16, 2013
response by George

Hi Freddy, good question. Use TWO SCOOPS per shake mixed with water, you can use skim milk if you want some more calories. Have one serving right after your workout. Then 90 minutes later have a meal with either chicken, steak, fish or turkey with brown rice or potatoes and green veggies. Then 3 hours later have another shake.

Good luck!

February 12, 2013    question
Will   Age: 46

"... My question is why would Carnivor makers put so much creatine in the product. I was having heart palpitations. Two doctor visits later, I found out it's the creatine. If they take that out of the product I may go back to it. This caused a big problem on my EKG. If you body makes sufficient amount of creatine, why would they put this into the product?"


February 12, 2013
response by Nick

Will, this is an extremely rare results as creatine has never been proven to cause any heart palpitations especially at the low levels found in this beef protein (isolate) shake. In fact, the creatine content in this product is far less than any other protein supplement on the market today.

Perhaps the reason you assume that the creatine content is high is with their labeling that states "20x the Creatine Content of Steak". It's just means it's more concentrated, not that there is more content.

The reason I am taking the time to go over this is because this is a very safe product that I have been using for close to 4 months daily without any issues, just good results.

I would STRONGLY suggest that you visit your doctor and find out why you are having the reactions you experienced, perhaps you are the one in a billion that would react this way based on per-existing conditions or genetics.

Best of luck, train hard and reach your goals!

January 5, 2013
response by Nick

If you want to lose weight, using a protein shake, a quality one like carnivor is a great start. Be sure to get at least one full gram of protein for every pound of body weight. Eat 4-5 times per day and cutting back calories and carbs for the final 2 meals of the day.

Use this shake after your workouts. I would suggest twice a day in total.

"... Hi, can I take this DURING my workouts?"


November 14, 2012
response by Shane

No, you should never drink a protein shake during workouts. They are meant for RIGHT AFTER YOUR TRAINING. If you drink it while you train your body will use it's blood and resources to digest the protein rather than shuttle nutrients to your muslces and give you a pump, etc.

During your workouts you should have an amino acid type drink such as XTEND. Search for it here.

September 14, 2012
response by Josef

It will give you the benefits and drawbacks of milk. In essence, if you are trying to gain weight then the extra protein from the milk is a good thing and if you use skim or 1% then there is barely any fat or carbs so it's safe to use without worry about fat gains.

felipe costa   Age: 24

"... why and how is time release supplement??? "


July 10, 2012
response by Ken

Because it contains fast, medium and slow digested branch chain amino acids (protein) so your body absorbs them at different rates. From a few seconds to hours, which is beneficial because it feeds and fuels your muscles around the clock to provide an anabolic enviroment.


September 20, 2012
response by J.

BCAA'S are not proteins. But yes it does contain fast acting proteins and slow acting casein proteins.


September 20, 2012

J., protein is made up of BCAA's - so you are wrong. Protein = BCAA = Proteins.

"... So... just picked up the Carnivor. I'm about 5 months pregnant and stick to a low impact work-out. At times its hard for me to eat still, and I need something to help me pack on a little more weight without the fat content. I'm used to taking supplements, and was rather fond of Whey protein before the pregnancy. For some reason it has been hard for me to digest Whey lately. So i heard about this... the thing is, I did not see the warning till I was already home. My question is, why is this protein not roccemended for pregnant women? What is the difference between this protein and the others when it comes to carrying a child??"


May 8, 2012
response by Norman

I would NOT suggest this for anyone pregnant - put your baby first. The thing with this is that it's not a standard whey protein, it's got many other ingredients that help with recovery, growth, strength etc.

Why are you trying to "pack on a little" bit of weight when pregnant?

Yes, this is actually quite normal with almost all Musclemeds products. With their dark rage and dark matter it turns green. Nothing to worry about.

"... im reading online that carnivor/creatine builds water in your body wich can be bad for your lungs,is this true??"


May 3, 2012
response by Arnold

Carnivor is not a creatine, so no, it doesn't not make you hold water.

And creatine has nothing to do with water in your lungs, this is a myth.


June 1, 2012
response by Andrew

Carnivor is most certainly Creatine... 20 times that of steak.. it says it in huge letters across the label...


June 1, 2012
response by Arnold

Again, it is NOT a creatine - it's a concentrated protein shake. Yes it does contain SOME creatine but that is not the main ingredient by any means. If you're looking for a creatine supplement you will need to purchase one separately to get actual creatine-based results. Con-Cret is a good selection these days.

Well sure, remember carnivor is FOOD, just liquid food. And probably more protein then you would eat with solid foods. I would use a scoop or two at least however. If you do want a source of carbs you can also eat a wheat bagel or banana.

Yes. Stacking a fat burner with a protein shake such as carnivor is a good combination as the protein will help you keep your muscle mass while the fat burner will shed the fat stores. Good luck!

response by Rick

If you need to add a protein to the mix then carnivor is a great addition. It is composed of beef isolated which are more effective at adding lean muscle tissue. However, there are also many whey isolates out there if you are looking for a straight forward protein - one that stands out is hydrowhey from Optimum Nutrition.

"... Not too bad on the stomach but terrible taste. Absolutely disgusting. Im using the blue rasberry and the dye is also so strong it turns my poop blue, which is a bit disconcerting. Overall this is a quality protein but they need to lay off the blue dye and work on the taste. The protein also cannot be mixed in a shaker cup and must be mixed with a blender. Shaking this stuff is near impossible. It foams and makes a huge blue mess. "

I've had good luck hitting up the carnivore pre and post workout. 1 scoop at a time. I would also recommend taking a casein upon waking and right before bed. This will give you good time release protein throughout the entire day.

Beef based protein is a better alternative to whey, especially if you've been using whey for some time. I prefer the chocolate flavor, it's really creamy and rich. Purchasing the shots instead is just a matter of convenience.

Your issue may be coming from the Apple Juice. For some reason all the fiber in it causes stomach issues in some people. Also mixing the apple juice with a protein will surely get your stomach churning.
