About Meal Replacement Shakes for Weight Loss

Meal Replacement Shakes are the perfect companion for any weight loss program. They contain a bioavailable source of essential amino acids, which assist in maintaining muscle mass. Keeping your muscle mass intact on a weight loss program is important, as it reduces the risk for rebound weight gain once the program is finished. This was reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2014.


Weight loss programs that focus on total body weight loss, measured by kilograms or pounds on the scales, do lead to faster weight loss. However, a program that targets fat-loss specifically, using abdominal girth or bioimpedence body fat measurements, is a much more beneficial way to approach this important body composition change. Gradual fat loss programs that preserves muscle tissue are a healthy and more sustainable option.


Weight loss programs, wherein people start randomly cutting out meals, without monitoring their protein intake or engaging in resistance exercise, will lead to the loss of muscle mass. Muscle mass is an important determinant of overall health, and becomes increasingly essential in older age and during illness.


Meal Replacement Shakes can be used to replace the highest calorie meal of the day. However, unless you are taking a quality multivitamin and mineral, it is important to only substitute one meal per day with one of these shakes. There are so many important micronutrients, such as zinc and selenium, phytonutrients, like lutein and lycopene, and even macronutrients, such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and fibre, that no powder comes close to providing. The life giving properties of whole food is as miraculous as it is complex!


Protein rich powders are also a great way to assist in the preservation of muscle mass and boost the metabolic rate. A heating  effect in the human body has been noted by scintists after consuming protein, compared to fats and carbohydrates. This is a marker of our metabolism and a sign of increased calorie expenditure. It is believed that this is due to the muscle protein synthetic effects of protein, which carbohydrates only minimally induce and fats does not seem to provoke at all.


Protein is incredibly important on so many levels and a quality Meal Replacement Shake can make all the difference on a fat-loss program. If you really want to make progress on the way to a healthier version of yourself, focusing on fat-loss, rather than weight-loss, is essential.
