Macro:Meal is a comprehensive blend of protein, carbohydrates and essential fatty acids designed for those looking to consume healthy nutrients in one convenient shake. Specifically designed for those who lead a hectic lifestyle or are continually on the go. The formula provides a great alternative to unhealthy snacks and fast food.
The protein content is a blend of fast, moderate and slow release proteins (Whey Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate, Egg White and Milk Protein, respectively) to provide a tapered release of amino acids which will help with the maintanance of lean mass and also satisfies your hunger for an extended period of time helping with reducing body fat levels.

Been using these as a meal replacement once a day and really happy, bought the unflavoured which on its own made with water isn't the most pleasant although is drinkable ( slightly bitter oat water flavour) however with some sort of flavouring either a few berries blitzed in or myprotein flavour drops) tastes lovely , very filling and easy to mix up .

As a nutrition science student I highly recommend this . This is what I always visioned as the perfect shake ;low gi carbs (no diabetes inducing sugar spikes) , multiple sources of protein for rebuilding muscle tissue, covering a wide range of amino acids And healthy fat for low inflammation. I would add a greens powder for multiple vitamins to make this the ultimate shake. But that doesn't take any credit from this great product. This shake combined with healthy eating and intense training throughout will guarentee you results either fat loss or muscle gain, I know I have from using it! Well done My Protein you aced it with this one.
I bought this to replace breakfast at work as I'm normally tight for time in the mornings. Been using it for a week now and I love it! I got the Chocolate and it tastes great, mixes well too. I've been mixing in Creatine which does make it a bit more 'bitty' but still goes down a treat.Goes Well With:Water, Creatine, Green Tea Extract
I purchase all my products through MP. They quality and price are the main reasons for moving from other more expensive products. I love the macro meals... I tend to have 2 a day but mix 1 scoop of unflavoured and one of flavoured! Ok, you get the odd lump - but who cares! I also mix in my Creatine - BCAA's - and additional scoops of whey protein to give the the volume of protein my body needs. LOVE IT! and I find it really very filling. In fact, my wife has also started taking them in the evening as by the time we get our gorgeous daughter into bed and I get back from training it is too late to eat! A note to MP - keep up the great work... keep the prices low but the quality as great as all your products are!Goes Well With:I only take this with semi-skimmed milk as trying to cut.
I bought this product to replace my mid day/ meal in work. In work is where I am tempted the most to eat by the guidance of my mood. Bad mood- loads of junk, good mood- loads of junk. The macro meal has definitely filled a gap and has helped with my dietary control. Both myself and my wife use the Macro-Meal shake although my wife is not as keen on the taste and texture (not sure if she continue taking), I tend to mix it with half milk and half water where as my wife mixes it solely with milk. There is a grainy after taste, but in my experience this is consistent with all protein based drinks. I use a pro-mix so mixability is not an issue. Overall a good product, can't really give a 5 Star for anything as yet as it is still early doors in regards to its overall effectiveness in my diet and training plan.Goes Well With:Milk/Water- not tried with anything else
Bought the plain flavour as though would be adding to soups etc. Instead drink with milk, add banana and tastes fantastic. Keeps you full for hours. Highly recommended.Goes Well With:Fruit, honey
Taste good, got the strawberry and cream flavour, and mixed with full fat milk. Mixes ok and tastes great, i love the oat like texture and taste, its a very filling shake, would like to see more flavours though! Recommended Goes Well With:Milk. Total greek yogurt
I've been using protein products for a couple of years now mainly to aid in IBS and metabolism issues. Macro:Meal I've been using as meal replacements for meetings, long drives, days out etc where safe food isn't easy to come by or I don't want to keep eating safe carbs only (biscuits, chocolate etc - not filling, too much sugar, etc etc great with a cuppa though!). Cookies & Cream tastes nice, mixes pretty well and goes down very easily. Can keep me going for a couple of hours before needing more food but that's the same with any meal I eat. I'm fortunate with my IBS that I can have diary products so I mix this with milk or half milk / half water. At a push it can replace a dessert after a meal, if you can fool yourself into believing it's a treat. It almost tastes good enough. Since starting weight training I'm using it more often along with some other products.Goes Well With:Milk (Skimmed works well enough, semi skimmed for creamier taste) IBS issues
Great product. Used with a decent diet really helped drop the pounds off. Tastes great, mixes well, a really good meal replacement.

My review for this comes from a different point of view from most who would buy this. I was advised by my doctor to try meal replacement shakes due to a severe lack of appetite that had a danger of developing into an eating disorder. This stuff mixes well and tastes great, especially with milk. I've gone from averaging about 4-5 meals a week to at least 1 shake a day and a evening meal. It's helped me put the weight back on I had lost through my lack of appetite. I always make sure I have one every day for breakfast which I something i have never eaten and I feel so much better for it. Thank you MyProtein!

I love this product, I have been bulking up and this has helped no end. As I have always been a small eater I have found it hard to gain weight. Since using Total MRP I have been able to put on a stone in no time. It just helps to get the extra meals in though out the day. Tastes good, easy to mix, cheap and again one big thing for me it doesnt cause me to have really bad spots, well no spots at all, so very happy.Goes Well With:Water or Milk
Product is amazing! It tastes great and very cost effective.
Good mixability and neutral but sober flavour. I have tried similar products before and this one is the best so far. Perfect particle size for the application.Goes Well With:Chocolate, nuts, cinnamon, rock and/or dance music.
Got the unflavoured version, very pleased with it. It's not about how it mixes or how it tastes, it's the results that count. Will be getting more in very soon, 2 bags this time.Goes Well With:Milk
Very good stuff if you do not have time to make your food. However you should not abuse with that.Goes Well With:Gym and water
Tell everyone to mix with a bit of water and simmer slowly untill thick, smooth as can be, it is no gritty feel in the mouth, then add your favourite flavour. I just mixed a couple of teaspoons of it this aftrenoon because I had a feeling it would thicken like porridge with having the oats in it.just think of all the recipes you could use it in. Excelent texture the best meal replacement ive ever tried. Goes Well With:Whatever you fancy
Great MRP product with a solid macro ratio. Bought the Vanilla flavour and both me and my girlfriend love the taste (she's usually very fussy). Definitely a future purchase of mine and highly recommendable to anyone who's looking for a quick, instant and healthy meal replacement !Goes Well With:Skimmed milk, plain yoghurt, even water.
At times when I'm hungry, I'll either skip a meal out of laziness, or eat poorly. With this I have a great tasting, quick to prepare and thoroughly nutritious meal in the space of minute! It mixes perfectly, no lumps or grainy mouth feel, and the Chocolate Smooth taste is impeccable for a supplement! You can't argue with the price, the quality or the amount, and for me, this could easily become my one and only protein supplement.Goes Well With:Semi-skimmed milk and instant oats
I love Total MRP. I have tried a number of protein supplements and generally find them pretty nasty. Mostly they are either too sweet, artificial or just taste horrible - they also give you serious flatulence! Not nice for ladies (or guys either come to that!). It may be that I use MRP in a slightly different way to others - I am a Remedial Sports therapist, sometimes my days can be very long and I need sustenance but have no time to eat a proper meal. MRP tastes very good to me, oaty and neutral - I don't go for the flavoured versions. It tastes a bit like thin ready brek. It's filling, has plenty of carbs to keep me ticking but protein to stave off hunger and it keeps me going for a good few hours without the feeling that I could eat a scabby horse by the end of a long hard day. The other bonus, it keeps me the shape I want to be without compromise. It's good stuff! One minor negative, I prefer mine mixed with milk, often I just measure doses with the relevant amount of milk powder and add water from the cooler when I am hungry - even with a wire ball in my shaker and a good hard shake I sill get lumps - they taste nice but would be better without. Also it settles very quickly, which is a bit of a nuisance to me because I have to take gulps whilst I work and then I end up with sludge at the bottom because I don't have time to stop, re-seal the lid, give it another shake and drink a bit more. Apart from that, big thumbs up!Goes Well With:a long day of physical work
Brilliant product I'd highly recommend either on the go, post workout or as a replacement meal. I have two shakes a day; one a second breakfast with 1% milk and fills me up until lunch time, my second comes straight after the gym with a piece of fruit and find it has all the right macros after a gruelling workout. After a gym session I also add 3G HMB and 5g glutamine to find I lack any DOMS with no aches or paints the day after. This is a must try product!!
I've tried a few meal replacement products but have to say this Total MRP is head and shoulders above any of the others I've used. Vanilla flavour tastes great, not too sweet and sickly like some can be. I actually feel full after a shake and have found it very easy to replace 2 x meals per day. It's obviously working as I've dropped 2kg in the space of 2 weeks. I'm very happy with the product.
Total MRP is an excellent product. It's tasty, mixes well and fills you up.
Total MRP is an unflavoured quick solution for people who haven't got time to make breakfast or are too lazy to do so, I'm a uni student that starts most days at 9am so this stuff is ideal. The taste of this stuff is slightly above average. It doesn't taste amazing because I bought the unflavoured but it doesn't taste horrible either. It is drinkable and full of good stuff that gets me through to lunch so it's all good. One 80g serving fills me up for a good 3-4 hours. My next meal replacement purchase will be the sachet ones done by MP because I've heard good things in online forums.Goes Well With:Milk semi or whole
Total MRP is a great product. I bought the unflavoured version. I am looking to bulk up as I'm short a lot of calories in a day. Goes Well With:Milk
I ordered the strawberry smooth Total MRP, it tastes like strawberry shortcake which is very nice, very cheap but mixes well and tastes brilliant. Can not comment on the effectiveness yet but so far so good. Thanks for the great price. Goes Well With:milk
I use MRP products to get me through meetings at work or for times when I can't have a proper meal but still want to watch calories. I don't use this for any type of training gains. I also suffer with IBS. This is a great tasting product (vanilla) which mixes ok but could be slightly better. Obviously being oats the texture is slightly dusty / chalky but with the flavourings that isn't a problem at all. It goes down well, keeps the hunger away for a couple of hours (could be better) and - critically - doesn't affect my IBS. One of the better MRP products on the market and the vanilla flavour tastes like ice cream - bar that sweetener after taste - so it actually feels like a treat. 4 stars simply through mixability and not satisfying hunger for not quite as long as I'd hoped.Goes Well With:Skimmed milk.
I have been using Total MRP for over two weeks and found this product value for money. Plus the best part is that I lost 5 pounds and people have noticed it, so it works!
Great taste, great ingredients and mixes well if you use wire whisk ball otherwise you get lumps. But this is better then other MRP I have used from other brands due to taste and ingredients
I was a little I unsure about trying Total MRP, but after a few weeks of trying it I have lost loads of weight and am not hungry between meals. It's a good product that I would recommend to anyone.
Total MRP is very easy on the stomach, and pretty filling too. Obviously the oat blend will make this bitty, so it's expected not to be a smooth shake, despite it saying chocolate smooth (seems a bit misleading) for the flavour, but it's tasty! I use this mainly for a easy and quick breakfast. I've never been one for eating breakfast, and I struggle to eat a small bowl of porridge, but this works well for me. Would be good if the protein and carb levels were a bit higher, but overall a good product for the money.Goes Well With:Water
Total MRP is a great product, have been using as a meal replacement at breakfast as I do not have time for a decent breakfast. This has been working really well and has helped to keep my diet on track. Now as this contains instant oats it doesn't really mix together to make a smooth shake, so the taste is bitty but not lumpy as it mixes well. I bought the strawberry cream and that tastes great, not too sweet either. I would only recommend this with milk as it tasted awful with water. It comes with a measuring cup so no need to buy another one. I'm interested to see what the other flavours are like. Goes Well With:Milk
The best MRP that I've tried. Good mixability and perfect composition of carbohydrates and protein.Goes Well With:In my opinion it goes perfect with coffee.
Total MRP is a good product that does what it says on the packet! Mixes well and is rather filling.
Total MRP has a decent taste and it definitely does the job in terms of a balanced meal replacement, the only slight problem is the difficulty in terms of getting it to smoothly mix, I'd certainly recommend having it in milk.
At the end of the day, we're here for the extra calories to make up our diet shortfall. I'm sure it more than does this. Compared to a competitor it's very similar (by competitor I mean the virtually identical 'bulk' website). The generic bulk product tastes like oaty milk with a hint of chocolate, not enjoyable but down-able, this however tastes basically like Coconut grit (strawberry cream). I don't like dried coconut, so for me the flavour sucks. I will however just get it down me as I need the cals more than the taste. It doesn't suspend, even in semi skimmed milk, so you have to keep it moving in your shaker while you down it or you'll end up with separation (liquid on the top, grit on the bottom.) These kind of shakes will never be 'odd-taste free' but this is fine for what it is and will help with your calorie intake and regularity the 'other end', which is a problem on high protein diets. May buy again, unless I get a tip off there's been a breakthrough in taste somewhere else, until then I'll alternate between the bulk product sites.Goes Well With:Tarmac
Total MRP is great with a good taste (I use vanilla). It's very easy to mix with water, I just shake it in a hand heldbottle with no mixer. It mixes very well.Goes Well With:Water or milk.
A decent product.
I've been using total MRP strawberry for 3 weeks now as a replacement for my unhealthy or non existent breakfasts along with a vitamin and fish oil tab. I find the shake has a very unique flavor, its not unpleasant by any means. Like a creamy, strawberry porridge... but cold! I've mixed it with skimmed milk and water, the milk really brings out the flavor and it suspends the oats and barley better in the shake. With water the flavor doesn't seem so good and you have to keep mixing it to keep the particles in the liquid and not in the bottom of the shaker. My advice, add the scoops to the milk/water, that way it doesn't stick to the inside edges and not mix properly. And give it a really good shake. i mean, put some effort into it. You bought a nutrition product in powder form. Give it the mix it deserves! It's creamy, flavorful and lasts about 2 1/2 - 3 hours. If you put too much liquid in or use semi skimmed milk you can get too much air into it and feel quite bloated. Just a warning.Goes Well With:Skimmed milk then Soya Milk then Water
I find the addition of oats and barley gives it a really good flavour. So much so that i bought 5 bags! After a while of 'just protein' I get sick of the flavours but this I can keep taking. Plus I want the balance of carbs etc as you need carbs with protein for maximum benefits. It keeps hunger at bay and stops me snacking. love it.Goes Well With:rice milk/soya/water
Total MRP is a great meal replacement or just to boost protein and carbs intake, it's just a shame that it doesn't taste good. It doesn't mix well either.
This is a good, solid go-to meal replacement product. Not up there with the True MRP sachets, which are incredibly filling, but this powder is quite good at staving off hunger until right before mealtime. Thin and grainy where True MRP is gloopy and textured. Total MRP mixes quite well, but is always going to be grainy given the ingredients list. It's there to do a job so I think the texture is quite acceptable and it's all edible goodness. Chocolate Smooth tastes fine, not bad at all.
I don't know why people don't like the taste. The strawberry one with milk tastes amazing and mixes very well having in mind that it contains oats. Not too sure about the effectiveness yet, but it does fill me up for a couple of hours. Great to add those extra calories.Goes Well With:milk
Total MRP is a tasty, easy mix that does just what is supposed to. I take one shake mid morning and one mid afternoon to satisfy any hunger, and I eat breakfast, lunch and dinner as whole food meals. It enables me to keep my carbs, proteins and fat at the right daily levels without eating 5/6 whole food meals. The strawberry flavour tastes good and mixes well.Goes Well With:LGlutamine and Creatine added if needed to top up daily/weekly levels.
Total MRP works great and tastes good. It's what I need during a long day at work and no time for lunch! I try to eat regularly every 3 hours and train regularly. This is the best way for me to keep up with my carbs/protein intake. The service from MyProtein was spot on. It was delivered on time and fast! It's highly recommended.
Great product. Mixes well and keeps hunger under control so as the temptation to eat rubbish is removed.
I don't know why people don't like the taste. I got the strawberry one and it tastes absolutely amazing with milk (haven't tried with water). I put two large scoops into the 400ml MP shaker and fill it up with milk. It's pleasant to drink, but you have to shake it midway through again so that the oats don't end up at the bottom. I'm not too sure about the effectiveness yet, but I think I am getting some gains at the gym. Goes Well With: Milk
Been using Total MRP for about a week now and its a good meal replacement. I take it after a work out and even though it can sometimes leave you slightly bloated, the a best meal replacement I've used. Would recommend this. Goes Well With:Whey protein
Total MRP is a good product, great value and delivered within 24 hours. It's up to My Protein's usual high standard.
Total MRP is a fantastic product. It tastes good and mixes well for an MRP.
The strawberry flavour isn't particularly nice but I prefer the taste with water rather than milk because the creaminess is overpowering. I would have opted for the vanilla flavour to match my impact whey (which is delicious) but it was out of stock and at half price I risked the strawberry and its not as tasty. Adds plenty of calories to my day but I find that it's not a meal replacement, a snack replacement yes but not a full meal. You can feel the fine oats in it when you drink but its not a particularly bad thing. Mixes easily but the oats fall to the bottom so you have to mix again for each sip so its not like eating a soggy biscuit at the end. Value for money I can't fault, highly recommend.
Good taste, very thick even with water. Can be a bit gritty if you don't use as much fluids as recommended. Goes Well With: I thicken it out with instant oats when really hungry.
I use the vanilla flavour as a breakfast shake before work. Vanilla tastes absolutely amazing with skimmed milk. So good i had to have a 2nd one the first time i had it and i look forward to drinking it in the mornings. It doesnt bloat or make me feel sick like Impact Whey can do. I drink it at 7:30am and it keeps me going till lunch around 12:30pm. Cant reccomend this stuff enough!
Received the unflavoured Total MRP last week, been having one a day mainly in the morning as a breakfast, very filling especially if you throw in a spoon full of oats although it makes the shake a little clumpy but still drinkable. Next time I will go for a flavoured shake but a tip for those who bought the unflavoured one, just throw in a spoonful of chocolate powder milkshake mix or coca powder and its transformed to a chocolate shake.
Taste was good , I found it was better to mix it in a blender , kept me full till my main meal
I've been using this for a couple of weeks over buying lunch in work. I find that mixing and leaving for a few moments (about 5 mins) and then mixing up again makes it easier to swallow. I've also added frozen stwarberries and other fruit and blended the mix for added taste. I have only been using the vanila one.
The taste of Total MRP is pretty good, not amazing, but better than most I've tried and the nutritional values are excellent. It makes hitting my macros much easier when out and about or when I don't have time to cook! It's ideal for students if you can get it while it's cheap!
I got the strawberry cream Total MRP and it was just awful. The oats stick and don't mix so there is lumps in the drink at all times.
Ordered this stuff about a two weeks ago, and have seen decent results, not so much in size but definitely in hardness. Got Vanilla and also Strawberry Cream, yet to open Strawberry, but the Vanilla tastes more like marzipan. Works amazingly for a breakfast; 60g of this, 20g of Impact Whey and some coffee powder and boiling water, works great! Anyone complaining about grittiness, you may be using too cold water, so try really hot water to mix it first, then add colder water to cool it down.Goes Well With:Impact Whey, Coffee
Pros - Cheap, not too much crap added, good amount of protein. Cons - Slightly too sweet, a bit grainy, pounch is an arse to close up. For what you pay who cares if it's a tad gritty & sweet. Does the job. A great no nonsense shake. I prefer the grittyness over the True MRP gloopyness!
recently ordered this stuff while it was on promo and can't say anything bad about it at all - tastes really good, mixes easy and does the job. I've started to have porridge for breakfast, one of these shakes for lunch then a proper tea and dont find myself hungry at all, but I still feel I've got enough energy to get through the day - so really you can't go wrong!Goes Well With:Fruit
Total MRP mixes really well with the standard MP mixer and tastes great.
I just recently got a pack of the strawberry and unflavoured versions of the total MRP and I'm impressed! It seems great, keeps me full for a while, and boosts my calorific intake as I have a habit of not eating! It mixes great, for people complaining, are you not using the little ball whisk in your shaker? Also considering it's got oats and barley in it mixes amazing. This is very effective and I rate it highly!
I started using this to replace breakfast. I cycle 10 miles to work each morning and have one of these when I get to work. This sees me through to my break time which can be anything from 3-5 hours later depending on what shift I am on. I use 2 scoops with 300ml skimmed milk. I have only used the unflavoured powder but have mixed it with the FlavDrops. I have tried Strawberry, Banana, Vanilla and Apple flavours and had very interesting and tasty results when mixing the flavours too. So far I have had absolutely no problems when mixing, using the MP Shaker and the chewy oats in the mixture give the shave a much more substantial feel to it.
"I've used this for about a year now, often five times a week as lunch replacement. Contrary to what others say, i think it tastes quite good! I use 300ml water and 3 large scoops of powder. Lunch sorted and it's saved me a fortune!"
This would be a great product if it mixed like the sachets do... I guess that's why it's cheaper!
"the chocolate one of these, i've been using for ages, but i ordered a strawberry by mistake, thankfully, that ones really tasty as well. neither have that sickly sweetness to them making them very palatable. i use it as a breakfast replacement, keeps me full till dinner. i've dropped a shed load of weight, and keep losing it, as well as putting on muscle so its proved its worth as part of my own regime. "
"The taste is not too bad, its the lumps in it that i don't like. I shake it about 20-25 times is my best shaker, and it still leaves small lumps of white powder(i presume this is ground oats etc). It took me a few days. but now i really like it. I mix 80g with about 300+ml of milk, and it is really filling. The chocolate flavour is what i bought and its good, but i havent had any of the others. It has stoppped my from snacking on unhealthy food like burgers and micro meals. My only dislike is the lumps, apart from that, great product. "
"Does not mix well at all, the oats and Barley stay clumped together. It ruins your appetite which is even bad when your in a mass gaining phase. Overly sweet if you add more then 2 scoops. The taste makes you feel sick so you need to hold your breath when drinking. Terrible product IMO. And its not even like you get exactly whats in the label as stated before the oats and barley are clumped in little white balls."
"7 years of weight training and every protein, lotion and potion, HMB, Zinc&Mag etc etc and I think I've not even gained a stone in that whole time. I started using MRP about 6 months ago and really have noticed a difference in strength and size gains. Everyone thinks it's ""all about the protein"" and are obsesed by this, I was exactly the same. When I first ordered this I was sceptical about the protein content being less than the 40 to 50 grams I expexted in every self respecting supplement. I have since learnt the importance of the right number of calories, carbs and nutrients by experiencing the benefit of it. I have just ordered my 4th one now and find it really useful in keeping up a good training diet while working mental shift patterns."
"Fantastic, ordered the strawberry flavor. Been taking 2 a day and they are great for starving off hunger and allow me to consume more calories, protein and carbs. Highly recommend"
To me it tastes nice enough unflavoured with milk. I add milkshake powder to make it delicious. It mixes nicely in a blender but lately I've been mixing by hand and drinking the lumps, they're not too bad. It definitely makes me feel better after training but I haven't measured the results apart from that.

"I normally buy True MRP sachets, thought I would try this to save some money. The moral is you ""get what you pay for"", far too sweet and not a great taste!"
"Very sweet, oaty and staves off hunger. Used this to replace dinner coupled with fruit and salad. Lost around 8 KG in a month and hoping to keep it going until I get ripped."
"I've been taking this just once or occasionally twice a day as well as using instant oats to top up my carbs, for about four weeks and can't fault it. Despite the fact that the unflavoured version with water tastes like watery digestive biscuits, it got me results, which is much more important than taste in my mind. It fills you up enough to be used as a meal replacement too and helped me put on 4 and a half pounds in about 4 and a half weeks. Best results I've had so far."
"I ordered this product as a meal replacement to make it easier to get more meals down my neck in a day. I'm a bit reluctant to eat/drink poor tasting foodstuffs. I wanted to order chocolate smooth as I'd read good reviews about it. When I realised I'd ordered the unflavoured I was gutted. I mixed it up with milk and tried it - it was like drinking watery porridge. Minging. And the aftertaste left powdery bits in my mouth. I had 2.4 kg of this stuff that I didn't want to waste so I bought some banana neskwik milkshake powder and put 5 scoops in with my mix and it tastes amazing. I'd compare it to a mcdonalds milkshake in flavourbut not quite so thick. The texture is still a bit grainy but in a good way. I've had this stuff for just under a fortnight and have been using it 2x a day. In the last 4 weeks of getting down the gym 3 times a week and drinking this stuff daily (as well as a few other improvements to my diet) I have so far gone from 11st 1 to 11 st 5. I've always struggled to gain weight so I'm thrilled with this small gain. I've also found that since I made my improvements i have much more energy at the gym which is great for when I get to the end of my sets when normally i'd fail I can squeeze a couple more reps out. I bought a mini shaker as well at the time of the order and this does a great job of getting the powder mixed. It has a weird springy metal ball inside that does the mixing. Better than a large mixer with the 'grid' at the top. All in all, the taste -unflavoured - can not and does not taste 'good'. It mixes well and does the job. I will be buying choc smooth next time... Hope this is useful to you."
"Great Product, Also a cheaper alternative to Hurricaine XS DOes a great job and for the price you cant go wrong at all, I have been trianing 3 times a week on a bulk and gained half a stone in 4 weeks!!"
"I thought judging by other comments that I would be drinking cement but I got strawberry and mix it with water and it mixes in around 5-10secs of good shaking. the taste is like a normal shake should be as its only got good ingrediants and not crap to fill it just oats, barley, flax and protein blend so down in around 10 secs. I even mix it with BCAA to give it an extra kick around an hour after training overall a great product which i will continue to use."
"Tried Total Breakfast and liked it but it did not mix well so I tried MRP. With MRP I felt hungry after an hour or so, where as TB took me through to lunch. For me MRP would only work between meals if I was training seriously, but I don't so it does not fit my nutrician strategy."
"As with most MP stuff this tastes great. Ordered the Choc Smooth. Very nice, very filling. Hard to totally mix though due to barley and oats in the mixture. Using it as a post workout lunch shake. Also good for pre-cycling snack as you get a tapered energy release. Another thumbs up."
"I have been having total mrp for my lunches everyday for the last month or so. The taste is not bad, drinkable I'd say (I got choc smooth) and is mixes in seconds. It keeps the cravings away til dinner and I've managed to lose a steady amount of weight. Basically it works!"
the best supplemnent for gaining... lifts your mood as well and gives you crazy energy. defou a staple
"These are awsome. Absolutely essential to get the 6 meals a day in. Great Spec, Taste Great, Do the job perfectly."
"At first I hated the taste because it's less of a milkshake taste than previous shakes I've had. But the taste isn't bad, you get use to it, and it's what's in the shake that matters, taste comes second. This lasted me 5 weeks and it's therefore worth the money in my opinion"
"I tried this product the first time with water and it was absolutely disgusting! I then had it with milk and it was rather pleasant, I have been using it for about a month now but i haven't seen any gains from it, I think youre better off using pure whey."
I was really impressed with this. The Strawberry flavour is particularly nice with milk rather than water. Doesn't leave you feeling hungry or bloated and an ideal MRP.
I'm not surprised at the nutty taste or that it may not mix as well as say a mainly protein product considering it has a large percentage of carbs in it. I bought the chocolate smooth and was very impressed as I expected it to be quite stodgy but was in fact really easy to drink. I will definitely buy again.
"I first had this shake with water and it wasnt that bad. So i had it the second time with milk, I was amazed it tasted just like a chocolate milkshake! this product is soo good im definatly going to re-buy it but next time ill try a differnt flavour to see what it's like, If it's anything like the chocolate then ill be amazed!"
"Using this as a gainer in between meals and after workouts. Loads of energy, fills you up and have gained 3lbs in a week. Very pleased although having trouble getting it to mix thoroughly."
"I ordered this mid afternoon, and it arrived the next morning! Very quick dispatch. It mixes very well, tastes great, and hasn't bloated me (yet). Should be able to bulk up fairly quickly with this, especially when I add maltodextrin to the shake."
"I have been a huge fan of the MRP sachets for a while now and love the Choc Mint ones. However they were out of stock so I ordered this product, with fingers crossed.\n\nI first mixed a shake with water (as with sachets) Not good I'm afraid, a thin consistency and very gritty. Next day I tried with milk/water and used a hand blender to mix. Much better this time though not as simple and portable as the sachets. The chocolate smooth flavour is really lovely though."
"I can only reiterate the sentiments of Mr A. Sharples, I also just ordered the strawberry flavor and found the taste and texture of this MRP quite pleasing when mixed with skimmed milk. Combined with the high quality ingredients and the fact that it leaves you feeling fairly full, you can hardly ask for more from an MRP."
"Recently bought the strawb flavour and must say that it tastes pretty damn good. Most strawberry protein drinks taste synthetic, however this one is more akin to Nesquick than a test tube.\n\nOnce mixed you get a sort of pleasant oaty, grainy consistency. I'm going to try the Vanilla next."
"Iv bought this product a few times always getting the chocolate flavour.\nChocolate was out of stock this time so i plumped for the strawberry and omg!\nThe strawberry flavour is really really aweful, its almost undrinkable.\nThe taste of a product is not a major issue for me, but iv got to be able to drink it for it to work!"
"Had vanilla and it has a sweet, oaty, vanillary soothing taste. It feels satisfying after finished moderately. very cheap. With ice it taste fantastic but even without it still tastes real good."
"This is an excellent product especially at this price. I have tried a lot of different protein/MRP's over the years ( i used to be into bodybuilding, now running and multi-sport) an where i am lactose sensitive i have to be very careful what i use. I have yet to find a fault with this. It tastes great (chocolate, havent tried the others), mixes perfectly with a hand shaker (unheard of!!!!!) and these ingredients for this price? I cannot praise this product enough. It has helped me increase my meal frequency which in less than a week has already resulted in me looking leaner, having a more constant flow of energy and reduced recovery time between runs etc. Generally if a product does the job i will use it regardless of taste but i actually look forward to drinking this!!!!!!!!! About to order some more this week"
"Guys just got this delivered today and its fan-bloody-tastic! I've been buying the MP MRP and whilst they do taste a little nicer with the minty flavour this MRP does go a long way to challenging it for top spot! This MRP does taste good for sure!\nFor value, quantity and overall product i would personally reccomend this over the MRP product now. Really pleased myprotein, this looks good bang for your buck!"
"Excellent ingredient profile, great taste and texture(oatiness makes it more meal-y), and mixes great.\n\nI've been using post workout as I train in my lunch break, and as a snack/gap meal. Fills you up and tastes just great with cold water.\n\nWill definately order again."
