Meal Replacement Shakes MRP
Meal replacement powders (MRPs), are typically protein-based drink mixes that are intended as a quick and nutritious alternative when you can?t get a "real" meal. Such protein shakes have been a long time favorite source of extra calories and protein for strength training athletes and bodybuilders, but advances in taste and texture (and marketing) have brought MRPs to "the masses."
In most cases, the "typical" American diet provides plenty of protein to prevent muscle loss (or "catabolism" as many of the products promise to protect you from). However, the typical American diet also provides more than enough fat for us to cover those muscles with a thick blanket of cushiony fat ? making MRPs an attractive choice for people trying to watch what they eat. Almost all MRPs provide a high-quality source of protein as the base, which delivers a complete amino acid profile containing the essential amino acids (phenyalanine, valine, threonine, tryptophan, isoleucine, methionine, histidine, arginine, lysine, leucine). As such, MRPs can be an excellent way to fortify your protein intake.
Meal Replacements may be the most valuable and overlooked supplement on the market. In reality, they really are not supplements at all when you come to think of it. They are complete meals.
People are always looking for the short cut to fat loss or building muscle, buying a drink or pill that promises miraculous results. We gain body fat by eating poorly so the only way to undo the damage is to reverse the cycle by developing good eating habits. Meal replacements or MRP make this possible and easy.
Meal replacements are pre-packaged powdered drink mixes that you mix with water, milk, or juice and then drink in the place of a meal. They are convenient, inexpensive, and most taste pretty good. For optimum fat-burning and muscle-building results, we need to consume a high-protein, moderate-carb, moderate-fat meal about 4-6 times a day.
So, replace two or three of your whole food meals with meal replacements and you will drastically start cutting out unneeded calories, calories that can add up and, if not burned off, will be stored as body fat.
Meal replacements provide a perfect, compact meal in a packet that is high in protein, low in fat (some have no fat) are low in carbohydrates, and contain a wide array of vitamins and minerals. They are low in sugar and cholesterol. They are very nutrient dense and can be mixed easily and conveniently.
In order to get the same benefits from whole food as some of the high quality meal replacements, you would have to put together a large meal like a chicken breast (protein), a potato for some carbs, and a salad for the vitamins six times a day. Why bother when you can just rip open a meal replacement packet and toss it into a cup with some water or milk.
