Has anyone tried the Kaizen protein powder from Costco? 

It is on sale at Costco this week and I would like to know how it compares with others.  Is it good?  Should I avoid it?

What brand do you use?

I have been having night sweats and hot flashes for awhile and they haven't been bad until lately.

I think I may need to try to take something to help with them.  At 4 this morning, I ended up just getting up and workout on. 

Help...wha

On Friday, I had my 1 yr check up with Dr. Reed and I am doing well.  Actually, he told me that he hasn't seen anyone do this well in such a long time.  He was quite pleased.
