Question - For My Experts!!!!!

  1. 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.

  2. Low fat, good taste without the follow up after taste. solid amount of vitamins and no filler ingrediants.

  3. Muscle Milk is absolutely horrible.

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

    You'll surely have a winner.

  4. 40 /60 ratio of protein to carbs, low sugar, low fat, needs to taste good and be inexpensive.

  5. 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.

  8. A replica of Prolabs Lean Mass Matrix cinnamon oatmeal at a better price, with no iron and you will rule the earth

    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)

  10. 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

    Add some anti oxidents and you'll have a winner above the rest, i know i'd stock up!

  12. 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.

  13. If a greens+ type product could be squeezed in as well

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