The tip of the day, in my never to be wishy-washy opinion, is to go forth and find ye a protein shake that you like.
As we have discussed ad-nauseum I HEART the Met Rx.
The old school original Met Rx chocolate flavor.
According to their website this is why I *should* like it:
METAMYOSYN® Protein Blend
The “Original” protein meal replacement powder that revolutionized sports nutrition! Combining METAMYOSYN® protein, L-Glutamine and a variety of vitamins and minerals, MET-Rx Original Drink Mix is a great addition to your fitness regimen.
• Helps support muscle mass*
• No Fructose or Sucrose added
• 3g of L-Glutamine
• 100% RDA for calcium
• High in Antioxidants
According to the nutrition information this is why I mightcould like it:
Calories from Fat 25
Total Fat 3 g 5%
Saturated Fat 2 g 10%
Cholesterol 10 mg 3%
Sodium 380 mg 16%
Potassium 1,190 mg 34%
Total Carbohydrate 19 g 6%
Dietary Fiber 3 g
Sugars 3 g
Protein 38 g (you all need this, right? because youve been doing your weights so diligently?)
Intellectually (and, at heart, MizFit is truly a nerdy intellectual) I know I should like it because the man who started the company, Dr. Scott Connelly, actually developed the metamyosyn protein to use with patients post surgery (or so the story goes. if you’re interested there is more information here.).
Dr. Connelly wanted to create something which would help post-surgery patients regain their health & prevent the loss of post-surgical muscle loss.
None of these reasons are why I love the Rx or why I think everyone needs to find a protein shake she adores.
For me it’s as simple as I think Met Rx tastes great, it’s pretty good for me, and it’s easy fast and SWEETCRAVINGsatiating—what’s not to love?
You may never “need” your shake (as always, whole food is a better option but prework out or ICE CREAM CRAVING Im always glad I have shakestuff on hand)—-but at least it’s there just in case.
Please to enjoy MizFit Hearts the Met Rx: more than you ever wanted to know.
Preview of coming MizFitTractions: Tomorrow shall bring us Jackie Warner’s favorite protein shake concoction.
YES it’s more whole food’y.
YES it’s more supplement’y.
YES, again, The Warner (‘s shake) has kicked my (shake’s) arse.
