Well it looks like some sort of weight gainer shake with a lot of extra vitamins added in. I would say it would be good postworkout but then again it has 11g of fat. Could use it as a meal replacement but I am not a big fan of taking in that much sugar unless it is postworkout.

i agree with Bradley. its kind of hard to tell where it would be good in a diet. PWO - but it has quite a bit of fat, as a MRP - but it has a lot of sugar. personally i think there are better things then that drink that you could probably find IMO.

Maybe it would be a good breakfast replacement when you're on the go.

hey the breakfast replacement is not a bad idea. they also have a light version of this drink with:
fat 3.4
-saturated fat 1.4 g
carbohydrate 41 g

04-22-2003, 04:40 PM
Is that 41g of carbs all sugar?

04-23-2003, 02:58 AM
yes, 41 g of sugar

04-23-2003, 03:35 AM
Well if I was going to go out and buy an MRP I would find something that contained less sugar. There are many products that get their carbs from low GI sources which would be better IMO.

Well, with all that sugar, maybe it would make a good post-workout drink, and it's pretty low in fat.

Although it probably would not matter that much but I was wondering what type of protein the drink contained? Just got to thinking since Ironman8 brought up postworkout. What I mean is it whey, caisen, soy, etc?
