If you are doing things right, you know that you should be getting 5 meals per day to constantly fuel and feed your body for muscle growth. Who has the time to do all that planning and cooking? It’s a healthy eater’s biggest challenge. You can use a quality bar as part of a meal or the whole meal itself. Bars offer the nutrition your body needs without all the fat, sodium, and cholesterol. So, instead of hitting the fast food drive thru, try picking up Met-Rx Big 100 Bar. It contains 360 calories, 27 grams of protein, 51 grams of carbs, and only 5 grams of fat. It offers high protein, 0 grams trans fats, vitamins and minerals, and is the perfect delicious on the go complete food.
Pre and Post Workout Bars
Regardless of your activity choice – gym warrior, long distance runner, basketball; you’re going to need to make sure that you have sufficient carbs in your system to fuel that workout. A bar with a good mix of protein, carbs, and fat that has a little bit of sugar is a great option. For example, the Protein Plus Bar has 320 calories, 32 grams of protein and the same amount of carbs, and only 2 grams of sugar.
Let’s say you just finished an intense weight training session. Now you’ll need a good deal of carbs to replace and replenish what you just burned through when you trained, but you’ll want a little more sugar and as little fat as possible. The carbs will get into the system faster and start the recovery process right away. The Big 100 Bar outlined above is a perfect choice. Half of the carbs in that bar come from sugars, a perfect post workout balance, and it has half the fat of the Protein Plus Bar.
Metamyosyn – The Deciding Factor
When it comes to choosing a protein you should make sure you are getting a quality product. Biological value, amino acid score, nitrogen protein utilization, protein efficiency ratio and protein digestibility are all things you should consider when choosing a bar. Met-Rx more than measures up in every one of these categories. Met-Rx bars are not your ordinary protein bars; they are made with Metamyosyn protein.
Metamyosyn is a blend of several different proteins with optimal amino acid compositions and sequences. These proteins are purified, isolated, and recombined to create a unique final amino acid array. Take a look below at what makes metamyosyn a cu above normal whey protein.
The most impressive study to date with metamyosyn proteins was performed on a group of police officers looking to gain muscle and strength. While most studies are designed to measure the active ingredient against a placebo that is not supposed to have any effect, Met-Rx researchers wanted to find out exactly what their Metamyosyn blend was made of. Therefore they decided to put the metamyosyn blend found in Met-Rx original protein shake head to head against what many bodybuilders and scientists consider to be the baddest protein on the planet: why protein.
Metamyosyn did more than hold its own against whey. It actually beat it down and took its lunch money. Final results found that metamyosyn users gained twice as much muscle mass and strength compared to whey users after just twelve weeks of training. And when I mention strength gains, I’m not talking about gains measured on some obsolete test like a hand gripper. All subjects were measure on exercises you’re probably familiar with if you’ve spend time in the weight room before: chest press, shoulder press, and leg extensions. This study clearly demonstrates that when protein and caloric content are equally matched, the combination of whey, casein, and other high quality proteins is more effective that whey only supplements. While the Big 100 Bar has a slightly different version of the metamyosyn protein blend found in Met Rx original protein shake, it still supplies similar fast and slow digesting proteins.
As you can see, protein bars the right protein bars can be an amazing addition to your nutritional program. To find out more about your Met-Rx options, visit the Met-Rx page.
