People here on this forum have told me I need to increase my calories, is myoplex a good meal replacement to get in an exact amount of calories for cutting/bulking?

I beg to differ; I prefer a protein shake over a can of tuna. Don't get me wrong I love tuna but...

Now if they only made tuna flavored myoplex..yum yum

When cutting, i wouldn't find an MRP very satieting.

Of course whole food is better but not everyone has time for whole food, whole food cannot be carried to school with you, whole food costs more money if you buy it from the cafeteria and its hard to figure out exactly the amount of calories and protien unless you weight every peice of meat in every meal somehow, i mean really how can you be precise with the calorie counting with whole foods unless you eat the same whole foods every single day (impossible considering i dont buy the food where i live and the cafeteria sometimes runs out of certain foods.)

The chicken daddy satisfiying is only useful to people who get hungry in the first place.

I never get hungry, i just dont, only maybe once in a great while do i get a craving, since i need to force myself to eat more, i need metrex even while cutting because my calories are too low even to properly cut.

Alot of people will say eat more food, but how can you be precise when you eat random foods which sometimes you dont even know whats in it because you didnt cook it.

Sounds like the myoplex is the way for you to go. The main thing is keeping your cals in check, and I think TCD was only implying that it is harder to stick to a diet if you are hungary. If you don't find that to be the case then the myoplex would be fine.

MyoPlex is full of maltodextrin. Why would you want that at any time other than after a workout? Whole food (or even a regular protein drink) is much better for cutting.

Well, I cook my food and bring it to school with me for the day. Seems to work, but to each his own. I do eat around the same thing everyday, or I just plan out my meals for a week and change it up if I really feel the need.

It's all up to you, but Myoplex is fine.

I wasn't refering to satiety generally. I refering to it personally.

I dislike hunger pangs.

Shao-Lin you have a job so you buy your own food correct?

You also have enough time to cook, are you going to school part time?

The chicken daddy hunger pains happens when you are in the habit of eating huge meals, however if you are in the habit of not eating very big meals you dont get hungry ever.

You do get cravings though,these are rare, like in the middle of the night once or twice a week you may crave a specific food.

Lucian, sounding as nice as possible here, but what the hell are you doddering on about?

I have no idea Robboe?

I'd go with a MRP but it has to be thick like the EAS ones.

You can probably buy guar gum to thicken them up if they're not up to your standard.

Dunno where from though.

Amen to that. It's impossible to carry a tupperware container with some chicken and rice around with you. :rolleyes:

I only use mrps (myoplex in specific) post-workout when bulking or cutting. Only difference is I add more dextrose and banana to the shake when bulking.
