    Wink Question - For My Experts!!!!!


    I have a question for you!!!!! What are BBers looking for in a Meal Replacement Shake? ie - Muscle Milk, as an example.

    I am curious as to what qualities that you feel are the most important?

    If you don't mind taking a moment to let me know, I would appreciate it.

    Muscle Milk is absolutely horrible.

    Design one like Instone Intake Performance, or Prolab's Lean Mass Matrix.

    You'll surely have a winner.

    40 /60 ratio of protein to carbs, low sugar, low fat, needs to taste good and be inexpensive.

    I would have to say, for me, it would need:
    Quality Protein Source: (WPI, Micellar Casein, WPC, etc.) Just a good mix of both fast and slow absorbing protein
    Good Taste:There's really no need to go exotic with these, just about any flavor ATW has come up with would suffice
    Good Carbs: No Malto or Dextrose. Carbs coming from oat or brown rice sources. Also a healthy serving of fiber.
    Good Fats: Just a good amount of flax or omega-3s. Only a couple grams for those watching fat intake.

    Also, it would need to have a Macro breakdown of 40/40/20 P/C/F
    Just me and my 0.02.

    I agree with UHCougar05 as well. You don't want empty cals like sugar.

    Built-in oats and flax? I'd buy that in a heartbeat. Just about the only two things I consistently add to my whey now.

    Seriously, though. I looked at ATW's MRP/gainer on the web site and way too much sugar/carbs. I'm very happy with your protein tho!
    He doesn't lift enough to strain...



    (I kid because I know him)

    I think a decent MRP shake has to have carbohydrates which are low in GI, not proccessed, and aren't constituted fully by various types of gums (xantham, guar, etc.,) Couple that with a high quality protein and you'd make alot of people happy.

    (Not me, I don't like shakes)

    I like the idea of basing it on a 40-40-20 split

    - quality range of proteins (starting with isolates and ending with caesen)
    - quality carbs (oatmeal, supercarb-esque)
    - fiber (insoluble and soluble)
    - quality fat (flax-also adds fiber, enova)
    - digestive enzymes
    - a nice BCAA mix would be good

    Now I say the above, basically a cheaper version of ergopharm - mass meal

    I seperate my protein by absorbtion rates. I like to use a fast absorbing standard 50+gram (high in BCAAs) pure whey protein like Isopure during the day to get quick results, however before bed, absorption rates are less relevant, so I like to use a whey/egg albumen mix like Optimum Pro Complex due to the fact that it covers a more broad spectrum of amino's. Also I really like flavors that give you the option of mixing with either water or milk.

    All in all though, these are the standards that I use.

    (1) High amounts of protein (50+)

    (2) High quality extraction/isolation methods.

    (3) No Aspartame. (Sucralose is fine)

    (4) Price.

    (5) Taste.

    (6) Mixabillity.

    low fat, 30+g of low GI carbs and 20+g of protein would be a good start.
