By Brian Frank Now that we offer a true meal replacement product (MRP), many of you have been asking how to use it or incorporate it into your daily routine to good effect. Do keep in mind that this product was developed for athletes like me—who despite many hours a week of cardio training and a healthy diet, still have an extra 5,10, or 15 pounds of excess body fat that provides additional insulation in winter, but not much other benefit.
