Real Carbs + Protein is now available in Birthday Cake and Apple Cinnamon Pie!

Unlike most bodybuilders, Rich Piana was never a huge fan of standard protein powders. He believed that the majority of your diet should come from nutrient-dense whole foods, such as beef, chicken, eggs, sweet potatoes, and oats. But Piana also understood that under certain circumstances, protein and meal replacement powders (MRPs) are extremely beneficial.

Two primary reasons protein powders and MRPs are so popular is because they’re convenient and tasty. When you’re in a hurry to get out the door, or you’re on-the-go, it’s healthier to drink a high-protein shake than a fast-food cheeseburger and fries.

Be prepared with 5% Nutrition’s Real Carbs + Protein

Piana was dissatisfied with the protein powders and MRPs available at the time – so he created his own. His 5% Nutrition label released Real Carbs + Protein, a high-quality, whole-foods-based MRP with:

  • Whole grain oats
  • Sweet potato
  • Rice flour
  • Hydrolyzed beef protein isolate (HydroBEEF)
  • Whole egg powder
  • Chickpea protein
  • Chicken powder
  • Coconut Oil

5% Nutrition Real Carbs + Protein Apple Cinnamon Pie isn’t the only recently-launched flavor! We also have Birthday Cake with sprinkles too!

Real Carbs + Protein is designed to resemble a whole-food meal by supplying your body with low glycemic carbohydrates, healthy fats, high-quality protein, and micronutrients. Piana knew that missing meals negatively impacts performance, recovery, and muscle growth. So if you’re running low on time and can’t eat a square meal, Real Carbs + Protein is a great product to have on hand. It helps ensure that your nutrition stays on track.
