Stuff I Try Out

If you are looking for a supplement with no additives, preservatives, and processing agents it is available...it's called food. However; sometimes it is just not feasible to whip up a balance meal when you haven't much time, nothing healthy on hand, or just plain do not want to cook. I'm not a big fan of supplements but I have to admit that meal replacement shakes are pretty handy.

The major problem is that most of them taste like lightly flavored motor oil. The Myoplex though is okay...provided you jazz it up with fruit and milk or yogurt. I generally make it with water, throw in whatever fruit I have on hand, and add a small container of fat-free frozen yogurt. It's quick, it's easy, and actually tastes comparable to a milk shake. There is an added bonus that the stuff is loaded with vitamins and minerals. It also has a lot of fiber which is good, but gives you the side effect of cutting some ferocious farts later in the day...so you may have to time your interactions with others.

Pro:
Quick, portable, and easy, no cooking required
Nutritious and satisfies hunger
As far as supplemental shakes go, it is actually good tasting

CON:
Expensive
Requires a blender
Gas producer

Verdict:



Not great but not bad. Real food is always better but you can't always get real food. These meal replacement shakes help me from eating other things when I'm hungry so that I can stay on track in my diet aims.

I always love myoplex but if your adding to it then your adding more carbs from what I see. How about this. I finally found something that actually works and the pricing is not half bad. Now you know I care about what my food taste like and after introducing you to that frozen dinner a while back I won't stir you wrong this time either. I found this at GNC but I found out you can get it cheaper even with shipping from bodybuilding.com website. Look into a product called Syntha 6. It is a meal replacement and you don't add anything to it but water hehe. Get yourself a blender bottle and keep this stuff at work. Well I keep half and half that means I take half of it to work and keep some at home too :) Anyway I've been taking it for almost a month now and boy you are gonna shit when you see my 1 month results. This stuff is already cutting me :) I was able to wear what I call my skinny jeans and they're even a little lose on me. Check it out. I got the strawberry flavor. A guy here at work takes it to and loves it.
