    Question MetRX?


    Hi, im starting to work out again after about 5 years stopped.

    I remember MetRX being one of the best supplements you could get. Is it still that way, or has it been surpassed or degraded in quality?

    I know next to nothing about nutrition. 90% of my time is spent researching companies and technologies and 10% i spend w/ my family and sleeping. so i dont have much time to learn all the intricacies and i would like to begin serious training asap.

    and am looking for good formulations.

    if MetRX isnt good anymore, please give suggestions on what would be good.

    There is a GNC and Vitamin World w/in 5 miles of my house, but the people working there seem to know as much about the subject as a Walgreen's clerk.

    Thank's

    p.s. please excuse that i posted this in two forums, my goals are to both bulk up and cut weight.

    Sorry about that. I just realized weight loss has about 14x the number of posts. I'll just move your reply over here and delete the other thread.

    For any supps you feel you may want (like protein), try the board sponcers here:
    Anabolicinnovations.com
    Customnutritionwarehouse.com
    Nutraplanet.com
    Planetarynutrition.com


    Above all, diet is the key component to any training regimen. The training itself takes second to nutrition IMO. If you can muster the time, browse around this forum using the search button as there are TONS of threads on diet and nutrition. Here is agood thread to start in: anabolicminds.com/forum/nutrition-health/40124-what-good-diet.html

    You will want to eat, eat often, eat healthy and get plenty of rest. Make sure you get adequate amounts of protein (from real food as much as possible as opposed to shakes) about a gram or more per lb of lean body mass. Try to keep all your carbs coming from low GI sources and your fats mostly unsaturated (olive oil, fish/fish oil, nuts/legumes, eggs, flax etc.).

    Many advocate a split of 40% carbs, 40% protein and 20% fats to make up the total daily intake of calories. I use that split personally with good results. A web site like fitday.com can help you track nutrients and percentages.

    Welcome to the board and welcome back to training.
    Yup, protien would be a major part. I'm mostly looking for either something preforumlated, or something that would be easy to mix. So i could fill the shaker w/ dry stuff and just add water at the gym after the workout. What are good supplements, and what are snake oil I have no idea. So far the only one's I'm currently aware of for working out are Protein, Creatine, L-Glutamine, Carbs, and B vitamins. The time required to filter out what's really beneficial and what's a fad is my main constraint. I could just go to GNC and buy every type of supplement they sold but i have a feeling it would do more harm than good.

    My diet as of now consists of Pasta w/ olive oil, a generous amount of fruits & veggies, & fish. I also take Centrum.

    I usually like to just buy things brick & mortar w/ cash, but i'll check out the sites you mentioned.

    I'll check out the thread you mentioned as well. ty for the info.

    If you're into MRP's give lean mass matrix cinnamon oatmeal a shot, it's my favorite. It uses low GI carbs and a 40-40-20 macro nutrient ratio. great stuff when you're on the go.

    Just did a google on that. It looks promising. Is Prolab a reputable company?

    I'm looking for a powder mixture i can add water to post work out to prevent catabolic degradation.

    The MetRX Protein Plus Powder and AMPED ECN seem to be the only powders they make now from what i can tell. At least that's all they sold at the local health shop. Very expensive though. The ECN was $70 for 45 servings (1 lb.), Protien Plus $30 for 2 lbs. Before the workout i can always nuke some pasta.

    Those are ridiculous prices. Check the board sponsors here and you'll find a lot better products and pricing. All the Whey is a good protein company. Also Optimum Nutrition makes good protein powder. A 10lb bag usually runs 40-45 bucks.

    Also you need to realize 'supplements' has a broad meaning these days, way beyond protein shakes these days. In your situation protein shake, a decent multivitamin and some fish oil caps are really the only things you'd want. As to what type of protein shake it's not really as crucial as the overall diet. Get raw protein from ON or AtW and add carbs as you see the need.

    metrx....along with biotest,eas and the like all have GREAT supps along with **** supps..........they may have pioneered what is staple today but thier commercialism alienated thier original target customers...us........and dont get me started on price

    go to a decent distro (some sponsor here) and get a decent casien protien,a decent whey protien,some fatty/oil supps,maybe creatie and youre good to go

    dont waste money on glutamine or horny goat weed or smilax........just buy more cottage cheese,salmon and BEEF
