Thought so-called ‘meal replacements’ were just for gaining weight?
Unlike protein shakes, meal replacement shakes can be used to help you shed pounds, for fast and visible weight loss results.
What is a Meal Replacement?
Meal replacements are specially balanced nutritional substitutes, most commonly in the form of a shake or a bar. Each meal replacement is enriched with over 25 essential daily vitamins and minerals so every meal has a perfectly portioned amount of calories and nutrients your body needs to help you burn fat.
Who can take Meal Replacements?
Meal replacement products are perfect for anyone looking to lose weight, supplement a healthy diet or simply increase their daily protein intake. Meal replacements are a delicious and convenient way to help you control your calorie intake and are expertly nutritionally balanced, to ensure you consume all the essential nutrients you need to support a busy lifestyle. Simply throw a bar in your bag for a quick and healthy meal on-the-go, plus all our meal replacements are ideal as pre or post workout meals to re-boost energy and help repair muscles. No extra supplements required.
When should I use meal replacements?
In a world where many of us are living high-stress fast-paced lives with little time to cook or prepare nutritionally balanced meals, convenience is king! Meal replacements are a perfect alternative to breakfast, lunch or dinner when time is short for a guaranteed healthy and delicious meal on-the-go.
Can I use meal replacements to lose weight?
Absolutely! If you want to shed some pounds and see fast and visible results, a meal replacement diet is the perfect choice for you. Simply replace your traditional meals with up to three delicious meal replacements each day, plus up to two high protein healthy snacks depending on your preferences to achieve your ideal body transformation, reducing your overall calories to around 800 – 1000 per day.
Will my body get everything in needs?
Each meal replacement product is enriched with over 25 vitamins and minerals; just three products a day contain all the recommended nutrients your body needs to stay strong and healthy. Meal replacements are also high in protein and fiber, leaving you feeling fuller for longer to promote weight loss.
Will I be hungry?
By consuming up to 800 calories a day, your body enters a natural metabolic state called ketosis. Once your body uses up its energy reserves of glycogen it starts to burn fats. This process produces ketones and after 2-4 days your body will enter ketosis, causing your body to use its fat stores to produce energy. Whilst in ketosis your blood sugar levels remain consistent, and therefore you may experience reduced feelings of hunger. This is known as ketogenic dieting.
How much weight could I lose?
Some dieters report losing up to 10lb in the first week! Meal replacement diets are incredibly effective and have transformed the lives of thousands of people. There could be serious added health benefits too; Kings College London is currently undertaking a study on the effect of total meal replacement diets on supporting the reduction of symptoms Type 2 Diabetes symptoms.
