EAT! Pro! has arrived!
stands for Exercise Advantage Technologies and the
product was designed to provide a supportive blend of nutrients
when a regular meal is not accessible or convenient. In 2003,
the newest version of EAT!, EAT! Pro! was released. It has
the same blend of high quality proteins, the same slow release
carbs (13g per serving - to be burned as fuel allowing the
32 grams of protein to be used for tissue maintenance, repair
and growth), and the same complete vitamin and mineral combination
as its predecessor. It also contains added L-Glutamine for
muscle preservation in the form of glutamine peptides (pure
L-glutamine is destroyed by stomach acids . . . peptides ensure
optimal cellular delivery). The newest version also has added
L-Taurine which is the second most abundant amino acid in
muscle, phosphtidylerine, which limits cortisol production
(cortisol is a muscle-eating hormone), and L-tyrosine for
enhanced alertness and performance. It is not only an alternative
to a supportive meal, but for athletes, exercisers, and weight
trainers . . . it's pretty close to the perfect blend of nutrients.
are some questions that people have asked Phil regarding this
exceptional formula, followed, of course, by Phil's answers:
What nutrients and ingredients are in your product EAT? Specifically,
what proteins? What carbs? What else? I can't find it in my
local health food store. What stores carry it?
The EAT! Metabolism
Enhancer formula includes a mix of whey protein and egg protein.
Based on all of the research I've looked at, this blend appears
to be the most valuable for optimal usage in the human body.
Whey protein isolate alone, which is advertised as some wonderful
ingredient in many overhyped commercial formulas, has a quick
gastric emptying property. It leaves the stomach so quickly
many of the amino acids wind up getting metabolized. That
means although you may consume 20 or 30 grams, you only have
a small percentage of the protein available to build or repair
cells. The rest is literally burned up by liver enzymes. The
addition of egg protein, long revered as the most biologically
complete protein, slows the release of the whey making the
blend a very high quality protein source from a position of
bioavailability for protein synthesis. It uses a very high
grade of maltodextrin extracted from corn with a slow release
property as its carb source. Maltodextrin should act as a
slow release carbohydrate, since the glucose molecules are
linked together in chains just as they would be in a supportive
carbohydrate food source. The chains in the lesser grades
(which are not identified as such on product labels) are dissolved
or broken apart by enzymes in saliva, thus, although "maltodextrin"
might resemble a slow release carb in a container, with the
lesser grades you wind up putting single glucose molecules
(simple sugars) into your stomach. EAT! uses the highest grade
available. 13 grams of slow release carbs are included to
provide fuel for thermic digestion. These carbs are protein
sparing, preventing protein from being used to meet energy
needs (as is often the case when carb intake is too low).
EAT! also has a complete profile of vitamins and minerals
including anti-oxidants to meet the recovery and health needs
of those who undergo vigorous exercise. I've also added Glutamine
Peptides to add a couple of grams of L-glutamine to a standard
serving (L-Glutamine in its free form is destroyed by stomach
acids - Glutamine Peptides allow you to actually deliver L-Glutamine
to muscle as well as to the various systems where it's used
The new EAT!
Pro! is sweetened with sucralose. There isn't any sugar. There
is a small amount of essential fatty acids from borage seed
oil mixed into the protein blend. There is also fiber from
some fruit rinds and a non-soluble fiber called inulin (not
insulin). The grades of protein and maltodextrin used make
it far too pricey to manufacture for sale commercially. You'll
never see it on the shelves of health food stores.
Why don't you make single serving packets?
packets was an ingenious marketing move by one major supplement
manufacturer which was followed by all the bandwagon jumpers
who saw product sales escalate. They play up the "convenience"
angle. For years I've been carrying my protein and meal replacement
supplements in single serving packets, better known as "Zip-Lock
Bags!" Is there really a need for single serving packets?
Most packets today approximate between 200 and 300 calories
per serving. Next time you have the chance, look closely at
your next door neighbor. Does he or she appear to have the
same body as you? Look at a pro football player on TV. Wouldn't
you think his nutritional needs are different than your neighbors?
This is a perfect example of how clever marketing can sway
an entire population away from common sense. We all have unique
caloric requirements, thus a "single serving packet"
can not possibly meet the needs of everyone. I've done something
unique with EAT! Every container includes a custom designed
scoop. Each scoop approximates 100 calories. There is a chart
on the container that allows you to approximate your caloric
needs. If you want to carry your EAT! servings with you, I'd
encourage you to splurge for some Zip Lock Bags and scoop
in whatever your optimal serving is!
What time of day is it best to use EAT?
Don't make the
mistake of believing that EAT! will do anything for you other
than offer you an optimal blend of nutrients when meals are
not convenient or accessible. There is no best time of day.
The goal is to get a supportive meal into your body every
3 - 3 1/2 hours. When it's challenging to get to a supportive
meal, have an EAT! shake instead.
Will you be coming out with other flavors?
I never intended to be in the supplement business. The popularity
of EAT! has developed based solely on my commitment to quality.
Since the vanilla milk shake and chocolate milk shake flavors
seem to meet the needs of all of my customers and clients,
I don't feel any need to expand the product line. If you'd
like, you can add some frozen strawberries or frozen bananas
to the vanilla flavor to vary the taste, or if you don't want
to consume any sugar, you can find NutraSweet makes sugar-free
syrups that are sold in many supermarkets. They are sweetened
with Acesulfame, a potassium compound. By the way, I personally
use EAT!, not only because of the quality, but I really love
the taste. In the past, I'd find a product, use it for a few
weeks, and grow tired of the taste. I've been using EAT! for
3 1/2 years and still think it tastes better than anything
else out there. This wasn't an accident. Once I refined the
formula, taste was a challenge. Minerals have a metallic taste.
Other ingredients further alter the taste. The first batch
tasted awful. I had it reformulated again and again and finally
it tasted fantastic. I tested it firstly with my staff, secondly
with my clients, and thirdly in random taste tests among health
club populations. The first release of EAT! was sweetened
with aspartame and acesulfame. As EAT! grew in popularity,
I still continued to refine the taste. The current formula
is a 4th Generation and based, not only on my own opinion,
but also upon the initial responses of customers,
I can say there is no better tasting formula on the market.

Info for Evaluation: When comparing EAT! with commercially
sold products, be sure to compare nutrient values to serving
size. Many products pump up their "Grams of Protein"
by referencing a 400 calorie serving (or more)! Consumers
also do not have a resource for evaluating grades of nutrients,
for example, there are a variety of grades of maltodextrin
which acts as a complex carbohydrate in EAT! The less
expensive grades are more readily converted into glucose.
EAT! uses a very high grade of maltodextrin as well as
the highest quality proteins.
