I've searched but can't find a thread specifically relating to the product.

Is it a good post work out protein shake? It seems too good to be true to me really. It's delicious, and it has 45g's of protein along with a variety of vitamins.

My question: What is the downside to MRP's?

Only thing I can think of is price. Maybe the fact that they might not as be as satisfying as eating solid meals, but they do to trick and are convenient.

its a meal replacement powder.. they are all pretty close, content-wise. looks ok to me. compare it to another MRP and buy whichever one sounds better to you with consideration to price, content, etc.

sorry it took me so long to replay again. It looks good but the cals are definetly low, unless your cutting. You could add some oil to it to get the cals up if your bulking.

I don't use it as a meal replacement, I usually eat right after. I use it mainly for the whey, and drink it right after I work out.

Am I doing this correctly?

Well the only way to tell if your doing it correctly is to see if thats working for you. If your seeing the gains you want then i would say yes.
