    smoothie king's protein powder...0 fat, 0 cholesterol, 1g carbs, 45g protein?!

    Has anyone tried smoothie king's gladiator low carb meal replacement/protein powder? Here's the nutrition info according to thedailyplate, I saw a tub in the store the other day and checked it out and this is accurate:

    serving size: 2 scoops (57g)
    180 calories, 0 from fat
    0 fat
    0 cholesterol
    150 mg sodium, 6% RDA
    355 mg potassium, 10% RDA
    1g carbohydrates
    0g dietary fiber
    0.5g sugars
    45g protein, 90% RDA


    Vitamin A 25%
    Vitamin C 440%
    Calcium 25%
    Iron 0%
    Vitamin D 20%
    Vitamin E 170%
    Vitamin K 0%
    Thiamin (B1) 290%
    Riboflavin (B2) 90%
    Niacin (B3) 90%
    Vitamin B6 220%
    Folic Acid (Folate) 20%
    Vitamin B12 75%
    Biotin 2%
    Magnesium 20%
    Panthothenic Acid 180%
    Zinc 0%
    Copper 2%
    Manganese 40%
    Chromium 10%
    Molybdenum 10%



    here's the information on what's in it from the smoothie king website:

    Try Smoothie King GladiatorŽ Protein Powder:

    * Is a low carb, low fat, low calorie meal replacement powder
    * Contains the protein digestive enzyme AminogenŽ – an all natural plant enzyme system that has been shown to increase protein absorption as much as 55%
    * Contains 45g of high quality cross-flow micro filtered (CFM) whey protein isolates and egg white protein
    * Contains additional amounts of Vitamin C, Vitamin E and B Vitamins for muscle recovery, enhanced immune protection and energy production

    they say the protein comes from whey and egg whites..are they using mostly egg whites to get such low carbs and fat?

    has anyone tried this and can recommend it? it was $45 a tub at the store, so I obviously don't want to jump into this

    yeah I had a shake with it while I was there too, the chocolate wasn't half bad...I believe it was a 2 lb tub, so around 16 servings? almost $3 a serving though, kind of ridiculous

    Damn it is convenient...but I would rather spend that kind of money on chicken or some nice steaks.
    I am inspired by Zyzz. Did I deletes?

    I´m pretty sure it´s mostly whey. Egg proteins are slightly more expensive (but perhaps the cost is similar to CFM whey) and more difficult to flavor/mix. CFM is one of the best method of filtration and it is the reason why it is so low in fat/carb.

    I´m not sure why it´s called meal replacement. And I´m guessing for $45, it´s a 2lbs tub. You can shop this site for CFM whey proteins that have almost zero carb/fat for cheaper.
    think of how stupid the average person is and then realize that half of them are dumber than that

    Its not a meal replacement...but a protein blend. Seems way too expensive.

    it would be cheaper to get a 2lber of WPI and than grab a carton of Egg Beaters and do one scoop of protein and 1cup of egg whites.
