I’ve noticed that if I consume mostly 1.5 for a few days I feel slightly different physically and mentally than if I consume 2.0 for a few days, and I generally feel better on 2.0. I’m almost positive it’s because of the lower carbs and the increase in lipids and protein. With the powder you’re getting almost 50% carbs, where with the drink you’re getting almost 50% lipids and an extra 20g of protein, so it would make sense that it’s a noticeable difference in metabolic pathways and how your body might feel.
I exercise at the gym a few times a week and with 1.5 I found myself regularly adding in a greek yogurt for the extra 10g of protein. With 2.0 I don’t feel that urge and when I drink it I feel more comfortably satisfied. With 2.0 I also feel more mentally focused and consistent.
I know I’m extremely self-aware of changes in my mind and body, but has anyone else noticed anything like this? Is it possible for the powder formula to be updated to incorporate some of the algae oils and a little more protein or is there a reason they’re shipping the powder with mostly carbs?
