Happy Friday! Are you as happy as I am that the weekend is upon us? Of course you are. What a silly question!
All three tasted great. The chocolate ones reminded me of chocolate milk, yet I still think I preferred the strawberry.
The strawberry flavor I received is the EAS Myoplex Carb Control shake. The body recovers most effectively when a post-workout meal or snack contains both protein and carbohydrates. The shake gave me lots of protein, and the apple gave me the fibrous carbohydrates to keep me full and repair my muscles. Not to mention both pack very easily!
The shake that was best for me, however, was the EAS Myoplex Nutrition Shake. This one has a screw cap that allows me to only have half at a time. Refueling within thirty minutes of your workout yields the best results, but I usually wait 1 hr and 45 minutes due to my shower time and commute to work. I can have half of this bottle right after my workout, seal it, and have the rest of it with oats or a piece of fruit when I get to the office.
Here’s the breakdown on my goodies:
|Nutrient Data||Myoplex Carb Control Ready-To-Drink||AdvantEDGE Carb Control Ready-To-Drink||
Myoplex Strength Formula Ready-To-Drink
|Cal from Fat||30||25||25|
As you can see, the AdvantEDGE Carb Control shake has only 110 calories and 0 sugars for its 17 g of protein. Sweet.
As my regular readers know, I try to stick with “real” foods when possible, but I think these are great on-the-go helpers to keep me on track. If you have time, I recommend their website. I checked it out earlier and was pleased at the amount of helpful articles, product descriptions, and even demonstrated strength exercises.
Have you tried EAS products? Do you have a favorite go-to protein?
I feel that I should mention that I skipped yesterday’s workout, and I had a hunk of cake for snack. Wow. This has not been the best week for me!
Luckily, my blisters are healing really well, and I am going for a run today. Hopefully I’ll run myself right back on track with my workouts and eating. K, out the door now!
Have a great weekend! Check back tomorrow for a recipe and a workout!
