Meal Replacements

  1. Meal Replacements


    Guys-

    I am cutting soon and since im on the road alot I was looking at getting a meal replacement for those times when I have to eat on the road. My first thought was Quest Protein bars but they are a little too expensive, then my next thought was Solution 5 but thats d/c. What do you guys take? Anything affordable would be more ideal.


  2. ^^^hey buddy,
    I'm still pretty new at this, but maybe someone will correct if I'm wrong. I like to eat almonds about 30pcs. per serving and some string cheese made with fat free milk, with 16oz. of water to give you that full feeling. This should be a sufficient amount of protien, carb, & healthy fatts combo for an on-the-go meal. But like I said I'm still pretty new with actually paying attention to what I'm eating so maybe someone else will give you better advice then I. its just my .02$ tho!!! Hope I've helped.

  3. make chicken!!! cut it up and put it in a baggy and take it with you the next day. u can eat piece by piece when u get hungry and its lean quality protein. something else u can pre cook the day before are egg whites (boiled)

    Yeh I agree. There are a lot of flavors, and a lot of different ways to prepare them to meet whatever caloric needs you may have whether its total cals or protein or whatever....good stuff!!

    So how exactly does making these bars work? Can you make these bars have a monster amount of cals? Like 700+? Just curious.

    For sure, you could add either more whey protein, more oats, more PB, more honey, raw eggs..... List goes on, get creative with them. You can make them massive bars or cut alot out and make them diet friendly.

  12. I'd say that if the diet isn't working for you now... change it! This would be a great opportunity to try out the Intermittent Fasting! It should work swell for you! I'm currently using it and loving it! I'm currently on 18-20 hours of fasting each day, from around 22.00 to 16.00, then I do my heavy lifting and after that I'll eat high quality food until I can't eat more! It was really really easy to adapt to that diet, in fact, my cutting have never gone so good and easy as it has with this diet.

    Just google Intermittent Fasting and you'll get some good hits to read up about it!


    My 2 cents!

  13. As far as an actual meal replacement that is convenient and tastes good, I really like Labrada Lean Body Breakfast shakes.

    There are times when i do shakes as well. I use the Lean Body Breakfast shakes if it is breakfast, if not the lean body low carb meal replacement for snack or the ready to go bottles from Labrada as a snack on the way home.

  16. You may not got for this but I always take 2 raw eggs, take one yolk out and mix them in a protein shake I always use that as my "ready to go meal"

    I like those too. The Blueberry Muffin and Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal are so good! I didn't like the Bananas and Cream so much though. I actually have a Labrada RTD in my fridge now for when I'm rushed and want something fast...that and I already have it.

  18. Better protein bar for me! A great meal replacement.

  19. Try the RTD Monster Milk by Cytosport. The Cookies and Cream is actually delicious. It's like a treat to me on a cut, and it's 330cal 45g protein, 15g carbs.

    I also like Cliff Builder bars while on the run. They have a good variety of flavors (vanilla almond and lemon are my favorites) I swear their chocolate mint tastes like thin mint girl scout cookies. They're 270cals, 30g carbs, 20g protein.

    I use both of these pretty regularly because I travel a good amount for work and they've been a savior for staying healthy on the run.

    I'm doing IF right now and better protein bars are a great way to add in a nice tasty 400 Cal's on the higher Cal workout days. Makes getting in 3500 in 8 hrs much easier!!

  21. BPB on hand always!

    I always have a big bag of the smokehouse almonds & beef jerky.. Perfect meal replacement and damn tasty! Add a diet cola to that as well

  22. Neither of those are bad choices for substituting a meal. I personally. Try and eat as many whole meals as much as possible. Both of those shakes do sound pretty tasty tho.

  23. blender add in:
    1 banana
    25g oatmeal
    50g whey
    2tbs peanutbutter or 2-3 oz olive oil
    and blend n bottle
