    Because the cafeteria here at this school does not have a special vegetarian menu I've been eating a lot of carbs. This has left me very groggy all day. My counselor is going to see if he can't arrange for me to keep fruit and stuff in the cafeteria refrigerator. He also suggested that I look into a meal replacement whey protein concoction called Myoplex.

    Anybody here know anything about Myoplex?

    MYOPLEX .......a meal Replacement powder from EAS a Nutritional drink
    comes in 3 flavors chocolate cream , strawberry cream and vanilla cream
    make a great shake on top of protein most popular among bodybuilders.

    It's not a top of the line product a box have 20 packages each serving gives you
    42 grams of protein , 300 calories , 2 grams of fat , 25 grams carbs
    it's known to give you a good amount of protein and nutrition per meal

    Made with artificial flavors , hydrogenated oils, vitamins , corn syrup , EAS
    is a brand name company the cost is a bit higher cost about $45 to $55 bucks
    should mix it in a blender , it's thick to make a good shake , don't leave it too
    long before drinking it or you will be spooning it out , use milk first and add mix
    package slowly so you don't have a glob at the bottom
    it's said to be very good and healthy ...........................................................

    ISOPURE is also another protein meal replacement and don't cost as much.

    I personally don't recommend either of these. Both are chock full of dairy product, and also artificial flavors, in addition to the other ingredients that Brother RICH mentioned.

    I much rather prefer SPIRU-TEIN, which is an all natural supplement, that contains spirulina, oat bran, and a host of other good stuff :)

    Check this link out: http://www.herbshop.com/np_spiru.htm

    For info on how to purchase, different products and their ingredients.

    PEACE

    I have used the Myoplex premade before and it was ok but as already stated the added ingredients turned me off it.......

    I use the Isopure and it's working it's a lot cleaner product

    Sam I wouldn't mind trying to fruit tein on there in conjunction with the whey protein I get from Isopure as my body seems to get the best results from a mixture of whey and soy proteins.........have you tried it.

    Yes I've tried it, but I think it's a little too sweet for my taste. You might like it though.

    Let me know what you think.

    Thanks y'all. I will look more into this spirutein and Isopur. I just wasn't too sure of this Myoplex. The man told me it is sweetened with splenda. Everytime they come out with a new artificial sweetner they come back ten years later and say it causes caner.
