Protein Drink?


i am just returning to lifting after a significant time off due to serious family medical reasons. when i used to lift i drank 8 oz. of Biotest Grow!/Metabolic Drive, both pre and post workout and really found that i liked it, especially the taste.

now upon returning to where i purchased it i was told it is no longer produced. i was just wondering if anyone could recommended a protein or even a meal replacement powder that works as well and tastes as good as the old Biotest Grow! stuff did?

i read many of the ads on the shopping page on the website but would appreciate any first hand experience. thanks


Biotest Grow!/Metabolic Drive


Umm, you can buy it on the home page of this site... woohoo!


i am not trying to beat a dead horse and don't want to be a pain in the butt, however the more reading i am doing on here regarding protein powders and meal repl. drinks the more confused i am getting. i really don't mind buying from the website and in fact would favor doing so in efforts to support the website. however so many of the articles and threads i read are dated years ago. my main question is can those with experience please recommend a pre and post protein or meal replacement drink that are currently available? thanks in advance


Metabolic drive is a perfect meal replacement if you add carbs or fat to it. Classic Grow! has some carbs. Surge is the best post workout drink on the market IMO.

All available from this site.


Surge pre/during/post workout.
Metabolic Drive as a meal replacement. Yes it is mostly just protein but that's the hard part. Just put some oats in a coffee grinder and dump them in and chuck down a couple of FLAMEOUT.
This way you don't end up paying for carbs, which are extremely cheap.


Pre and post workout Surge is the best choice.

For all other times Metabolic drive is a good protein choice.
