Regarding a completely unique and very innovative protein/gainer supplement the world has never seen before.
If one were to be released that had an unprecedented formula in terms of unique items, anabolic goodies and growth fractions, tasted absolutely amazing (BSL flavors), but was priced higher than similar formulas probably in the range of $3 per serving would it be of interest or is it cost prohibitive regardless of the gains that could be made from said formula?

Kind of like Ultra Peptide 2.0 + AA? If so, it sounds like a great idea, but I don't think it will do too well. You guys just don't do a good enough job promoting (hyping) stuff to reach the kind of audience (i.e., MuscleTech customers) willing to pay that much per serving. Just my 2 cents
p.s. R&R is great

Run a batch ... see how it sells w/ the marketing you do for it. I personally would purchase it.

i would not pay $3 per serving for anything ! Thats just my opinion

How about you give us some insight what the ingredients would be. I'm pretty interested.

Unfortunately I don't want to give hints out yet, I've been knocked off enough so at least this time I need to be sure it doesn't happen before I even release it. sorry

If it is comparable to the protein of a whole protein food like one would be able to acquire for $3 (bulk purchase all my whole food protein) it would be considered. I would not pay $3 for a 23.5g serving of protein powder regardless. But if it had the satiety and caloric/nutrient profile equivalent to a 6-8oz chicken breast, two cups of broc/cauli and 1-2tblsp of xvoo I would consider it for my work day meal(s) and/or even more if it produced the anabolic properties you claim.

Jordan, you know I don't use supplements
No I have never looked at it. Is there relevance?

It's typically thought of an an upper-tier MRP along with VPX's Zero Impact MRP. Given what you wrote and Infusion's or ZI's breakdown, would a product like that work for you?
OR In other words, if you could create your own liquid meal, what would you like to see it contain?
05-07-2007, 10:03 PM
Most my meals outside of p/pwo consist of about 35-50g protein, 5-20g carbs (vegetables) and 10-20g fat (xvoo). Depending upon goals the carbs go up and down with the fat the inverse of the carbs.
For me the issue with liquid meals is satiety and fiber content. I need my fiber or I am unhappy and if I am not somewhat satisfied I may tend to still grab for a whole food.
As for those other micro ingredients, a solid amino profile slow digesting protein that does not gas, bloat or bind and a low GI carb and with EFA's
Like I said, I never even consider them because they have always been cost prohibitive and lacking in satiety. There may be those who have more experience than myself and preference that is different than mine.

I prefer to chew my food too. How I would use 1/2 serving of this product is as a booster shake to a solid food meal. I am realistic and I know very few would actually do this, but I would just for the anabolic goodies in there. But like you I am from the old school where I want to chew the calories

if others are like me, i always keep some type of meal replacement powder on hand just for convenience purposes. it is not unreasonable to charge $3 per serving if the powder is as filling and nourishing as a clean, whole food meal.

I think it would fly if it was marketed as a two in one. Meal replacement and anabolic. Get your protein and growth factors all in one.

Hmmm I was just thinking about this topic today
Alot of attention has been given to supplement type of stuff over the past 10-15 years but very little towards building block nutrition since whey protein was first formulated years ago.
The only recent thing that comes to mind is waxy maize starch
I'd like to see some supplement companies work on foods themselves, seeing how much nutrition they can pack into the smallest container. Thereby finding something the body can process to make really good gains without getting overloaded. MRP is a good try but I have better luck making my own gainer shakes.
It's sort of like the difference between eating fresh fish and rice vs. eating a hungry man dinner. The fish and rice may not have as high of calories and protein, but since they are much more nutritionally sound you're gonna make better gains off of it.
So to answer the question, if the product gave me gains in a way that I wouldn't normally experience, I would buy it at $3 per serving, as that's not much more than many MRP's on the market right now.

A few years back I picked up about 10 boxes of Prolab Lean Mass Matrix dirt cheap at a GNC. That was a pretty good product.

As far as I understand the idea has been scrapped by customizer
