Macro:Meal is a comprehensive blend of protein, carbohydrates and essential fatty acids designed for those looking to consume healthy nutrients in one convenient meal replacement shake. Specifically designed for those who lead a hectic lifestyle or are continually on the go. The formula provides a great alternative to unhealthy snacks and fast food.
The protein content is a blend of fast, moderate and slow release proteins (Whey Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate, Egg White and Milk Protein, respectively) to provide a tapered release of amino acids which will help with the maintanance of lean mass and also satisfies your hunger for an extended period of time helping with reducing body fat levels. The carbohydrates are sourced from the low GI blend of Fine Scottish Oats and Activated Barley in order to provide a slow release of energy and prevent an insulin spike.
The essential fatty acids (EFAs) in this formula are from Flax Seed powder and the Activated Barley. EFAs play a vital role in energy production, effective functioning of the nervous system, digestive efficiency, and effective immune response.

A good choice if you haven't time to eat normally.
I bought this after reading too many reviews but unfortunately there is a huge a gap between this product and reviews and marketing. People just reviewed it in one week. This product don't have any effect on your muscles or body it's just u r drinking water but sweet water everyday. I'm feeling hungry in two hours after drinking this. My workout routine and all other things r going as per routine. Goes Well With:Water, milk Didn't try with anything else.
I use the unflavoured version for a quick breakfast and also post workout. Keeps me nice and full in the morning until lunch and leaves me feeling replenished and satisfied after my workout. I love this shake as it has a good macro profile consisting of no-nonsense ingredients and no high-GI carbs/sugars. As others have said, unflavoured is very bland but not unpleasant - the closest the taste comes to is an unsweetened rusk biscuit.Goes Well With:Water, Milk
I used to have lunch with an Impact Whey Protein shake, but since I've started exercising again, I was very hungry by the end of the day. I've been trying this, and I feel much more satisfied, and now I can last the whole day. The blend of proteins, fats and carbohydrates is quite effective, and now I use the proteins only as an after-gym snack. As many people reported, it forms little clumps. It's an effect of the flaxseed poweder, and the only way to avoid it is to blend it: no amount of manual shaking will remove it. Still, the clumps are very small, I do not find it unpleasant to swallow, the shake is thick and won't leave excess residue on the bottom. Goes Well With:I got it unflavored, so I can vary its flavour by mixing it with milk or juice, and adding cocoa powder, instant coffee or other aromas. Goes quite well with the flavdrops.
Tastes as good as milkshakes you would buy from a supermarket. My only negative with the product is that the end of my shake is a bit too grainy.
How many grams are in one scoop? How many required for 80g?
Taste: great Mixability: not to great some times but that's not a big deal. Effectiveness: very good. If you are looking for a meal replacement this is the one. Take to work, college anywhere. Helps you fill full for a long time and also stops cravings!! If your goal is to lower body fat and are worried about what to eat when away from home ! This low carb shake is the answer😉Goes Well With:Water or milk depends if you want those extra carbs for extra energy?!
Excellent product keeps me full no problem at all. Sadly I didn't select the flavour I wanted so unflavoured arrived I've given it a go buts it's awful. I'll order again but make sure I order a flavour next time
Nice flavour. Not too sweet. Keeps me going until lunch. Will be buying again.Goes Well With:Soya milk
Tastes nice enough to enjoy it for breakfast, fills me up and fuels my midday gym session before lunch!Goes Well With:Water
Mixed in blender with Blueberries as it is unflavoured, very good.Goes Well With:Blueberries
While I have had the strawberry cream flavour previously and enjoyed it, I have found that the chocolate flavour has an after-taste of rotting fruit. MyProtein confirms that this is how that flavour is supposed to taste and are unwilling to, for example, taste a sample of this packet to confirm all is in order .
My son uses My Protein and recommended it,i bought this as a meal replacement to help me lose weight along with healthy eating i wasnt sure i would like it as i can't drink smoothies due to the texture :/ but this shake is delicious i opted for the strawberry flavour, i look forward to actually having it lol :-) i make it with skimmed milk as i dont fancy the water option it makes a lovely creamy texture/flavour, wasn't sure it would be filling enough for lunch replacement as a 250ml portion is not a lot so at the moment im having it for breakfast may replace lunch with 1 too and have a salad as i eat late in the evenings due to work,im sure i will try other products soon.
Tried this product before but went chocolate, and thought i would try unflavoured and get some FlavDrops so i can have lots of flavours out of one shake so they don't get boring. I came across Strawberry FlavDrop and Unflavoured Macro:Meal, used about 200ml of water and 9/10 drops of Strawberry and mixed, then put in two scoops of macro:meal, shook again and it tasted like porridge with strawberry jam. The next day it hit me, i want that warm and have it for breakfast. So i mixed it up*, put into a microwave safe cup/bowl and 1min-1min30** in the microwave later***. Thick porridge like shake that tastes amazing. * I Found best result to mix water and FlavDrops first then mix in the powder, then transfer to bowl or cup **It was trial and error, go 30 sec at a time and mix until thick and hot enough ***DO NOT use hot water in the shakers, it doesn't end well. DO NOT Microwave your shaker either.Goes Well With:Water and FlavDrops
Can be a little gritty if not mixed properly. Really like the chocolate and vanilla. Great breakfast replacement. Goes Well With:Milk
Tastes great and fills you up as a nutritionally balanced breakfast or lunch replacement when work or my two children ruin routines Goes Well With:Cold semi skimmed milk
Great taste and very handy quick meal replacement
I have heard that some protein shakes taste awful.....not this one! I bought it after seeing it recommended in an article about protein powders, their varieties and their uses. It suits my requirements as a meal replacement perfectly as I work long shifts and can sometimes struggle to take on the right foods at the right times. I blend a banana, some almond or soya milk and a scoop and a half of powder for a really quick and tasty breakfast solution! It really kick starts the day, quicker to consume than some cereal and I can drink it on the go and means I dont feel the need to eat until lunch. I prefer to use a little extra than the recommended 1 scoop as it makes a thicker shake which gives me a fuller feeling for longer. I will be buying this again and again!Goes Well With:Blended with a banana and some soya/almond milk. For a real treat try chocolate soya or almond milk.
The taste is pretty good (strawberry), but I found it hard to get mixed. There are always bumps when I mix it with water in a regular shaker. So I do suggest you use a mixer for this product. :) Otherwise, the product is really good. I usually eat it when I'm at uni and have no time for eating anything else. It does keep hunger at bay, and makes you feel full and what's even better... contains lot's of protein :D it's my perfect post workout post protein post uni meal before i get home in the evening :)Goes Well With:not sure, have to try other options, so far only tried water and it is ok (read above)
My favourite product from MyProtein. Tastes great and keeps hunger at bay nicely.
