EAS Myoplex Meal Replacement Powder Review
To start off this 3 part meal replacement
supplement review series, we first take a look at Myoplex
Deluxe from EAS. It's not too far fetched to say that the
Myoplex line of meal replacement powder from EAS is one
the most popular among bodybuilders. This is true for nutrition
contents, and as well for taste and selection of flavors.
Myoplex MRP Flavors - Delicious!
First let's take a look at the flavors
offer by EAS - after all, most of us want good taste shakes
on top of the proteins. :) Myoplex offer 3 basic flavors:
chocolate cream, strawberry cream, and vanilla cream. (You
can also get a variety pack.) Kudos to EAS for making an
outstanding flavors meal replacement powder. All 3 flavors
taste great! I'm not a big fan of chocolate or strawberry,
so vanilla cream is my choice. But for those who love chocolate
and strawberry, you'll enjoy those flavors as well. EAS
recently introduce several new flavors, I haven't tried
them myself, but I haven't heard much praise for their taste
I recommend you use a blender to make
your shake - you'll really enjoy the consistency of the
shake. It's rather thick, so I don't recommend leaving it
for too long before drinking it, or you'll be spooning it
out. :) If you're going to mix it in a cup, I recommend
filling the cup with some milk first, and then dump the
powder in slowly and mix. If you do it the other way around,
you'll end up with a big glob at the bottom.
Okay, let's get to the good stuff - inside
the meal replacement supplement. In terms of powder quality
wise, Myoplex isn't top of the line, but it's quite good.
Let's take a look at what's in one serving. (Each box you
buy comes with 20 packets.) Each serving gives you 42 grams
of protein, 300 calories, 2 grams fat, and 25 grams carbs.
I won't list the whole lot here - just too many. These are
pretty standard, and give you a good amount of protein and
One thing you should know though, is that
Myoplex has a lot of 'fillers' such as artificial flavors,
hydrogenated oils, vitamins, corn syrup and a bunch of other
stuff. These don't do much for you nutrition wise, they're
meant to help out with the taste. If you read our review
on the ISOPURE meal replacement, you'll see that it
has very little 'fillers'.
The Myoplex meal replacement powder tend
to cost a few bucks more than other brands, simply because
EAS is a brand name. We definitely think its worth the investment
at around $45 to $55. When you think about it, that's around
2 bucks for a protein packed, tasty meal. :)
