Meal Replacement Powders
are the answers to most peoples nutrition nightmares. Most bodybuilders
in the world are wanting to eat frequently, meaning 5-6 times a day. Each
of these meals will ideally contain a balance of high protein, moderate
to high amounts of carbohydrates, and low amounts of fat. Now, taking everything
into consideration such as getting all six meals in each day as well as
making sure that each meal is nutritionally complete can be difficult.
I doubt that 1% of all you that are reading this can call yourself hardcore
enough that you could go an entire week eating correctly. This is where
these meal replacement powders (and bars) will come into effect.
MRP's are Band-Aids for your diet. These products basically have all of
the good stuff from a nutritionally correct meal and none of the bad that
you would normally encounter in a meal such as high fat, inadequate vitamins
and minerals, etc. They contain a precise balance of high protein, high
carbohydrates, and most have less than 2 grams of fat. What more could
you ask for? Also, most of the MRP's contain less than 270 calories when
mixed with water; slightly more when mixed with skim milk. Another plus
is that most of the MRP's contain in excess of 100% of the U.S. RDA for
virtually every essential vitamin and mineral.
is that these along with good supplementation are a must if you want to
ever be able to put on some serious size. Unless you have total dedication
to your diet you are going to fall short in trying to get what you need
from food alone. I try to eat 1 of these with breakfast and one more directly
after I get home from my workout each day. The reason for these times is
this. In the morning, your metabolism is at it's highest point during the
day. This is the time you need to consume the most food that is high quality.
The after workout shake is for a pretty obvious reason. The reason is that
it blends up fast and will get some badly needed carbs and protein into
your system while you have a chance to relax and cook a good dinner. The top
choices for Meal Replacement Powders are Met-Rx, RX Fuel by TwinLab and Myoplex from EAS.
Warning: Do not use MPR's for every meal or even the majoriy of your meals. Health risks of using Meal Replacement Powders to go on a liquid diet may rise from lack of medical supervision or from people with only mild obesity on the diet. Many weight loss experts claim that liquid diets causing rapid weight loss tend to over use lean muscle and slow the metabolism, thus, making it even more difficult for weight loss to be maintained. Eventually, liquid diets can lead to the development of muscle cramps, anemia, dizziness, menstrual abnormality, and constipation. The people who are only mildly obese lose too much lean body mass which increases their chance of cardiac dysfunctions.
