Actually I am just about to go mix up a blender of METRx right now. I started using Metrx back in February. Mainly to lose some weight. It has worked I have lost weight. It has been pretty easy. At first I was very diligent about using the Metrx twice a day with a light meal for dinner/lunch. I haven't been as diligent as of late, but am still eating better than before.

Myoplex 3 times a day in addition to 3 other smaller meals. This stuff has worked wonders for me ... down to 7.5% bodyfat and have lost hardly any weight (in other words, I'm able to keep the lean muscle I've gained over the racing season).

After Thanksgiving diner (ironic) 1999 I began a life-changing diet. I was at 213 lbs. Slower than ever on the bike. Eating like a pig, and setting a really bad example for my new born daughter. Two weeks ago the Tanita scale said 155 lbs and 8.5% BF.

The Slimfast didn't do all the work. I increased the intensity of my rides, stopped overeating, started a regimen of situps, push-ups, leg lifts, etc. and mixed in a little starvation.

On easy riding days I have a SlimFast at 9am and 1pm. If I have a substantial ride planned I eat lunch for more energy.

Are you trying to dump some pounds, strapped for time, or just wondering?

I'm trying to lose wieght without losing muscle. I'm somewhat into body building (not competitive) so I don't want to lose my gains there. I started commmuting on my bike to work for cardio.
