About Meal Replacement Shakes for Weight Loss

Meal Replacement Shakes are the perfect companion to any weight loss program. They are 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.



In the short term, weight loss programs, instead of fat loss programs, do lead to faster weight gain. And no doubt, it can be exciting to see the kilograms fall away fast. However, a more gradual fat loss program that preserves as much muscle tissue as possible is certainly the healthy option.



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 plants is a miraculous and complex feat!



Protein rich powders are also a great way to assist in the preservation of muscle mass and boost the metabolic rate. A slight heating of the body is noted after consuming protein, which 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 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 (not just light) you, then focusing on fat-loss, rather than weight-loss, is important.
