Adequate nutrition, exercise and recovery are essential for building a stronger, leaner body. However, in today's fast paced society, the idea of sitting down to a healthy nutritious meal is just that, an idea. The reality is that many individuals, even dedicated and well trained athletes, find it hard to purchase, prepare and eat a variety of meals throughout the day that are capable of meeting their nutritional demands.
Requirements for Athletes: Meta-Meal was formulated to assist the athlete in achieving optimal nutrition by providing a unique protein blend of undenatured, easily digested and absorbable protein, 2 added grams of L-Glutamine, energy-packed carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals to increase muscle mass, strength and athletic performance. Meta-Meal packs together 42 g of the highest biological value (HBV) protein with a unique blend of undenatured whey protein concentrate, calcium caseinate and egg albumin. The addition of NitroZyme helps breakdown long and short chain peptides into smaller, more readily absorbable amino acids for maximum digestion and absorption. NitroZyme helps the body release more amino acids from ingested protein than the action of digestive enzymes alone. When an athlete takes Meta-Meal (enhanced with NitroZyme), the body can absorb more free amino acids directly into the muscle tissue, which helps to increase muscle size, strength and lean body mass.
Nutritional needs vary from person to person. Regular heavy resistance exercise and physical activity stimulates muscle hypertrophy (growth) as well as protein metabolism. Through stimulating myofibrillar protein synthesis (resistance training), and mitochondrial protein synthesis (endurance training), a significant quantity of amino acids are oxidized (broken down and used for energy) during each type of exercise. Recent data concerning the protein needs for athletes and exercise enthusiasts has found that dietary protein intake of 1.2-2.0 g/kg body weight per day is likely needed for individuals participating in regular strength/endurance exercise to achieve optimal muscle growth. More precisely, endurance athletes (marathon, track, soccer, basketball, hockey, etc.) are recommended to consume daily protein intakes of 1.2-1.5 g/kg body weight. Strength athletes (bodybuilding, football, etc.) are recommended to consume 1.6-2.0 g/kg body weight. Most importantly, for the natural athlete, the amount of protein (grams) per kg body weight is the key to optimal recovery and performance. For example, a male weighing 200 lbs (90.91 kg) training with heavy weights to gain muscle mass and strength 4-6 times per week would be recommended to consume 182 g of protein daily. That accumulates to roughly 36-45 grams of protein per meal. On the other hand, a female training for the same muscle and strength goals that weighs 130 lbs (59.09 kg) would be recommended to consume 118 g protein daily. That accumulates to roughly 20-24 grams of protein per meal. These examples are representations of what scientific evidence is indicating safe and effective daily protein intake for various athletes and their nutrition goals.
There is NO Reason to Miss a Meal: For those individuals that moderately exercise (1-3 times weekly) or have long, intense work days, Meta-Meal provides the ideal nutrition for your busy schedule. With Meta-Meal there is NO reason to be skipping meals. Meta-Meal mixes instantly and tastes delicious.
