Our Premium Protein Blend

  • Whey Isolate – Fast Acting with BCAAs:The formula's whey isolate is gently membrane filtered to minimize lactose, carbohydrate, and fat, then instantized for superior dispersibility. It's a rich source of branched-chain amino acids and one of the faster-acting proteins, making it ideal for jumpstarting the muscle-building process.
  • Micellar Casein – Ideal for Building Muscle:The micellar casein in Metabolic Drive is also gently membrane filtered. Even though it's more slowly digested, it has a distinct advantage over whey isolate due to its ability to amplify nitrogen retention, and increased nitrogen retention is essential for muscle performance. This factor alone makes micellar casein the ideal muscle-building protein.

Why You Need More Protein

Whether your goal is fat loss, muscle gain, or both, adding more protein to your diet will always get you closer to your goal. Here's why:

  1. Diets higher in protein lead to greater fat loss. One reason for this is because protein is filling. It satisfies hunger, naturally leading to reduced calorie intake. Protein is actually the most effective appetite suppressant. On top of that, it's very difficult for your body to convert protein into body fat, even at very high amounts. That means you can eat a lot of it, feel more satiated, and still lose fat.
  2. Protein has a higher thermic effect than the other two macronutrients, almost double in fact. In short, your body burns more calories digesting protein than it does with dietary fat or carbs. Eating protein is thermogenic and can lead to a higher metabolic rate. This means greater fat loss when dieting and less fat gain when overfeeding in order to build muscle.
  3. Without adequate protein, muscle building is halted, strength gains are slow or even nonexistent, and athletic performance is hampered.
  4. Protein is not only essential for building muscle, it's also essential for preserving muscle and keeping your metabolism revved up. Without a steady supply of amino acids from protein, the body breaks down its own proteins from lean muscle in order to meet this demand. A diet higher in protein prevents this.

The lesson? If you want to get lean, get big, get strong, or dominate your sport, there's one simple rule that'll help you achieve your goal: consume more protein!

How to Make Your Perfect Protein Shake

  1. Use a blender. While Metabolic Drive mixes easily with a spoon or in a shaker bottle, nothing beats a blended protein shake, especially if you add ice. Just about any blender will do the trick at home, but if you work in a setting that allows it, pick up a travel blender. These are portable, single-serving blenders that fit into a desk drawer. And with most models, the pitcher can be used as a cup. They only run about $20 and come in very handy.
  2. Add ice or make ice cream. Almost any protein shake recipe is better when blended with ice. Add a lot of ice and reduce the amount of liquid called for in the recipe and you'll have a spoon-ready, high-protein ice cream.
  3. Adjust the amount of liquid to your personal preference. Some people like a thin shake; others like them thick. Feel free to adjust the liquid amounts in any of these recipes to fit your preference.
  4. Master your flavors. Remember, when using extra ice, water, milk, juice, or almond milk, you'll slightly dilute the flavor of the other ingredients, so adjust accordingly. For example, if a recipe calls for peppermint extract but you prefer to make your shake with lots of ice or more water than called for, you'll need to add a little extra peppermint to achieve the same flavor intensity.
  5. Adjust the calories and macros. You'll notice that we didn't include calorie counts in these recipes. Why? Because many of these recipes provide you with options that would not change the calorie and macronutrient (protein, carbohydrate and fat) profiles.

Dessert Pizza

Dessert Pizza

RECIPE LIST

If you're interested in building muscle, being lean, and actually enjoying food that supports those goals, then our protein dessert pizza is for you. The recipe consists of an oatmeal vanilla crust topped with cream cheese and raspberry frosting. Both are protein packed using Metabolic Drive Vanilla.

Cut into 8 slices, which provides about 25 grams of protein per slice.

Crust Ingredients:

  • 4 scoops Metabolic Drive Vanilla
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 whole egg
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond or cashew milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup Splenda, depending on how sweet you want it
  • A splash of vanilla extract
  • Liberal amounts of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, or pumpkin pie spice blend

Crust Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix the crust ingredients together.
  3. Line a pizza pan with parchment paper and coat it lightly with coconut oil spray or whatever you have handy.
  4. Spoon out the batter onto the middle of the pan, then gently spread. Try to create an evenly distributed circle. Don’t go too thin otherwise your pizza won't be pick-up-able.
  5. Bake for about 12 minutes. Time and temp may vary depending on your oven, and how thin you spread the crust.
  6. Let the crust cool completely before adding toppings.

Topping Ingredients:

  • 4 scoops Metabolic Drive Vanilla
  • 1 brick (8 ounces) low-fat cream cheese
  • 6 tablespoons unsweetened almond or cashew milk
  • 2 big handfuls of your favorite frozen berries

Topping Directions:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl except the berries. Once the frosting has a smooth texture, add the berries and mix.
  2. Spread topping evenly over the cooled crust.
  3. Slice into eight pieces and let it chill in the fridge until you're ready to dig in.

Options:

  1. You can add nuts, coconut flakes, or dark chocolate chips to the crust batter, or the frosting.
  2. Use whatever milk you want. The unsweetened almond and cashew stuff just saves you a few calories and adds slightly more creaminess than water. Don't use it because it's nutritious – it's not much better than water. Use it because it doesn't contain lactose or added sugar.
  3. If you don't want sweetness other than what's in the protein powder, skip the Splenda and add one tablespoon of coconut flour to compensate for the dryness of the sugar substitute.
  4. For the topping, I use low-fat cream cheese, but use whatever kind you want.
  5. The cream cheese frosting can be used with any kind of dessert – think protein cookies, cakes, muffins, or waffles. It's also perfect as a dip for fruit.
  6. Feel free to use fresh fruit. You don't even have to mix it into the frosting, just arrange it on top. Frozen fruit needs to be mixed in because as it thaws the natural juice will separate a little, which is actually pretty when mixed into the frosting.

Healthy Gainer Shake

Healthy Gainer Shake

RECIPE LIST

Most people don't simply want to gain "weight" – they want to gain muscle. The problem with most so-called gainer shakes on the market is that you end up gaining mostly fat. That's because they contain tons of sugar or other cheap filler ingredients. For our gainer shake, we're adding healthy calorie-dense foods. Blended with water, the shake provides about 650 clean, quality calories.

This shake is very easy to adjust based on the number of extra calories you're looking to add to your nutrition plan. Simply add more or less banana, nut butter, or Metabolic Drive, adjusting the amount of liquid as necessary.

Ingredients:

  • 3 Scoops Metabolic Drive Chocolate or Vanilla
  • 1 Banana
  • 2 Tablespoons Natural Peanut Butter
  • 24 oz Cold Water, Almond Milk, or Skim Milk
  • Handful Ice

Directions:

  1. Blend all the ingredients together and fuel your gains!
