Met-Rx is a company and website that was initially founded in 1991 to provide nutrition for sports. This company has led the trend in meal replacement powders since they formed, and have been successful ever since.

Their products are now sold worldwide, and claim to provide the necessary nutrients for optimum levels of fitness. However the Met-Rx website provides much more than just sports nutrients, it also acts as a fitness resource for athletes, bodybuilders and college students who want to reach their full potential.

Met-Rx provides training videos as well as athlete profiles and details on upcoming events for anyone who visits the site. However, the main focus is still on the supplemental products that it sells and these include products for muscle mass and strength, those for muscle tone and energy, performance supplements, exercise recovery and repair as well as fitness accessories.


Each product from the Met-Rx range has different ingredients. There are nutritional facts and ingredients listed for most of their products in the online store.

Product Features

Many of the Met-Rx products are sold as a powder to mix into drinks, and most user reviews state that they are an extremely tasty brand of supplement. However, taste is not the most important thing and what really counts are the nutritional ratios of each individual product.

Since Met-Rx led the way in meal replacement powders since the early 1990’s, the formula has changed a little and more products have been added to the line. The powders allowed perfect nutrition to become available to everybody, and meant that large numbers of calories could be easily consumed. However, today there are many other products available so it is important to shop around to get the best deals.

Met-Rx have also started to develop protein bars, though user reviews complain that they are unnecessarily high in sugars and not as tasty as their traditional meal replacement powders. In short the general opinion is that Met-Rx products are reliable but there are now better nutritional supplements available if you shop around.

    I was surprised to see that MetRx is being advertised as not being good for weight loss. So I would like to make some comments about that. I used MetRx in early 2000 after the birth of my son. Drank it twice a day for breakfast and Dinner along with a balanced lunch usually chicken, rice and some green vegtable. I had 2 snacks a day (yogurt and apple in the morning, and egg whites with cheese in the afternoon. When I calculated my calories it was close to 1600-1800 a day. I WAS SOOO FULL!! I would have to force myself to eat during the day just because I knew I needed the calories. I ran 2 miles everyday and lifted every other day. I LOST 40 lbs in 3 months. I did it again in 2008 since my weight had gone up from no exercise and eating out. I lost 40 lbs again. I am now buying MetRx because I went back to school while working and did not exercise, ate at only fast food places and gained 50 lbs. So right now I am 189 lbs 5’7 and am going back to MetRx for weight loss. I know that if I am not keeping my muscle while running and working out, I might lose the weight but I look flabby, fat and just gross. With the calories and the protein I can maintain my muscle and reach my goal of 139-145 lbs. So with that being said, if you are drinking this counting your calories and really watching the quality of your carbs, you will lose weight. But if you are adding it to your already excessive eating habits, then you will see gains. But excercise without the proper nutrients will leave you feeling tired, and disappointed (been there too). There is one very important thing that I should mention here as well. I have insulin resistance, which was caused by Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrom, and ADD/ADHD. Those medical conditions make losing weight even harder and are somehow all tied together because of the insulin. When I take MetRx the vitamins and especially the minerals seem to help with this problem. The magnesium helps to better process the energy in my body, and even my ADD is easier to manage. Minerals are SOOOO important. I have been on and off with my diet and excersice for years due to work and family and life, but when my clothes looks like I am hiding ziplock bags of jello under them, I know its time to hit the gym, and start he MetRx. I have tried Advocare, Muscle Milk, IsoPure and even Juicing. But I always come back, I will keep you all posted. Good Luck on your quest to lose weight, this is the only supplement that works for me.

    I think you need to reevaluate some of Met-RX’s product line. There meal replacement shake is an excellent way to replace a meal with high quality protein, and moderate carbs, and low fat. They are a great way to lose weight. The packets contain 39 grams of protein so they satisfy your hunger and only 240 calories mixed with water.Amazon Prime members can purchase them for $1.74 a piece.

    I am trying to lost weight and was given a large bag of Met RX bars that are donated. If I only eat 1/2 cup twice a day in the place of meals, will I lose or gain weight? I am desperate and was grateful that this was donated to me, but I have to lose weight for my health. I take one green coffee extract capsule 30 mins. before eating one half cup of the Met RX bars (since they are in a bag and stuck together, I break pieces off and measure one half cup.

    Im 40 and looking to loose weight by using Met-RX meal replacement protein powder (2 shakes and one meal for lunch). I only do treadmill for about 40 a day. Can I loose weight with this product or will it actually make me gain weight?

    When it comes to losing weight, it’s all about calories in vs calories out. There are many calculations that can tell you how many calories your body burns in a days time, just take that number and subtract 500 to 1000
