MRP

Can anyone give me a good idea of the best timing for meal replacement formula.

ATM I'm consming half a pack of Progen http://www.suppshop.co.uk/pg-product_info-d-Progen-pId-117.html ) with half a measure of whey before a workout as soon as I get back from work. After weight training I'll get my main meal eaten.

On days when I'm not weight training is it advisable to stay away from it before I do cardio because of it's carbohydrare content?

Advice on this product would be welcomed.

Thanks in advance

    No mate dont have it as your pre workout meal.

    You want REAL FOOD as your pre workout meal. (then wait 1.5 hours then train). You can have it as your pwo shake if you want i guess. Or have it for breakfast or have it at work when you cant get hold of real food.

    Never have any form of powder shake: 1. for your pre workout meal, 2. for your ppwo meal. Shakes are only a supplement, they can not replace real food because it quite simply wont work.

    A common misconception in this board (and in gym etc), although im not saying that you have this misconception though miv, is that someone can use powder as a replacement to their real food, ie just have 7 shakes a day and no food, then they think theyll grow. WRONG!!! Powder is a SUPPLEMENT and should be used a max of 2-3 times per day. I eat 8 feeds per day, 3 of my feeds are shakes.

    Perhaps the best gains (naturally aswell) came when i was approaching 20 years old and started to eat only 6 meals a day, no shakes or supplements just solid food.

    I see what you are saying. I am not however entirely supplementing my diet. I have LOTS of fish, chicken, veg, salad, protein pancakes etc.. throughout the day. Only about 80 gms is supplemented of around 330

    I had just read on the guide to cutting thread (which I am doing now) it's a good idea to be taken before a workout.

    Is there ANY real difference between this and whey supplement?
