I take Phlexy-10 which is more of a convience than anything. I take 40 pills a day and a quarter of the formula I would have to take without them. to tell you the truth, I would not try a pill that allows me to eat meat. I wouldn’t trust it. Then again I have been told my entire life not to eat things like that (considering a single piece of meat can have upwards of 40 grams of protein and pasta 8 for a single serving).
I would say stick to the low diets. Im 18 i know its a pain in the butt to have to watch what you eat, but allowing more protein I think it would be harder since youd have to be more exact and careful.
I can have 245 mg a day by the way.
