Anyone Use MRP's, Bars, Etc.?

Are there any MRP’s or protein bars that anybody uses regularly to replace whole food meals? In my current profession it can be very difficult to find the physical time to consume whole food during a given shift. I had considered supplementing meals with MRP’s or protein bars, however I am concerned about the health effects of consuming 1-3 per day, for up to 5 days a week. What are your thoughts?

For the past couple of months I’ve been having 1 to 2 Metabolic Drive shakes and 1 to 2 Finibars a day in addition to 3 to 4 regular meals.

MRPs and Bars are a good addition to a diet IF you already have good WHOLE FOODS that you eat in addition to them.

You can get some good calories if you have some whey with whole milk (and maybe a shot of oil) and can pound that.

I’m not too sure on bars though…

Look in the store. Metabolic Drive Complete and the Metabolic Drive Bars are both fantastic products.
