here are two major obstacles in today’s culture that make healthy eating a formidable challenge. One obstacle is our schedule. Today’s fast-paced lifestyle often has us rushing out the door to work or school with no time for breakfast. We often sacrifice good nutrition for convenience, opting for the high-fat combo meal or the nutrient-starved microwave dinner instead of a meal that’s fresh and nutritious. The other obstacle is that even healthy options may not always be as balanced or complete as we need them to be. For example, the right amount of protein and other nutrients may also be high in calories and fat. It’s difficult to take the time to prepare healthy meals on a regular basis, and yet that’s exactly what our body needs to maintain steady energy levels.
THE SOLUTION: Meal Replacement Shake
Receive complete nutrition in a light, refreshing meal even when you’re pressed for time or trying to lose weight. Available in berry, chocolate and vanilla flavors, Meal Replacement Shakes are easy to make and deliver balanced nutrition that taste delicious. More importantly, Meal Replacement Shakes offer a powerful combination of vitamins, minerals, protein, carbohydrates and fiber that are wholesome and easy to digest. With 26 vitamins and minerals and only 220 calories per serving, Meal Replacement Shakes are an excellent addition to your weight management program. They give you an alternative to high-calorie meals packed with sugars, fat and other empty calories, and provide the protein and nutrients you need to stay at your best.
One of the most distinguishable features of a Meal Replacement Shake is its protein content. Each shake packs 24 grams of easily digestible protein, more than twice what you’ll find in many leading health shakes on the market. Because protein is the building block of muscle, and because muscle is your body’s best engine for utilizing fat as an energy source, the protein in Meal Replacement Shake supports your body’s ability to lower body fat. Furthermore, studies have shown that a 1:1 protein-to-carbohydrate ratio supports weight loss and provides sustained energy for healthy weight loss. Meal Replacement Shakes provide that optimal ratio to help facilitate healthy weight management.
Meal Replacement Shakes also provide the vitamins and minerals to make them one of the most well-rounded meals you can find. Nutrition authorities recommend that we consume at least 25 grams of fiber each day, although most of us only consume 12 to15 grams. Each shake contains five grams of fiber (chocolate flavor includes six grams of fiber) to help make up for where your diet falls short. People who eat high-fiber diets are less likely to gain weight because fiber helps curb your appetite and supports regularity. Meal Replacement Shakes also address calcium intake. While it is recommended that most adults consume 1,000 to 1,200 mg of calcium each day, the majority of us consume only 500 to 800 mg. Calcium is vital not only for strengthening our bones and teeth, but it also plays a vital role in every cellular activity in our bodies. Meal Replacement Shakes provide 500 mg (50% DV) of calcium in every single serving.
