Meal Replacement Shakes for Weight Loss

Meal Replacement Shakes are the perfect companion to any weight loss program. There are many reasons why they can be helpful, though certainly one of the most important is that high quality protein powders contain a bioavailable source of essential amino acids, which assist in maintaining muscle mass. And why is maintaining muscle mass important when are focusing on losing weight I hear you ask?

 

 

Well, it is important to remember that although losing muscle during a weight loss program will lead to faster weight loss on the scales, a reseach paper published by the prestigious American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2014 highlighted the importance of maintaining muscle mass during weight loss programs in order to reduce rebound weight gain once the program is completed. So, even though losing muscle during weight loss may look good on the scales—because muscle is heavy—this will actually increase your risk for weight gain down the track.

 

 

Not only do Meal Replacement Shakes provide high quality protein, but they also provide a low calorie option for replacing a meal, preferably the highest calorie content meal of the day. However, unless you are taking a quality multivitamin and mineral, it is important to only substitute one meal per day. 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 could ever come close to mimicking the life giving properties of plants—well, at least not until science is sufficiently advanced that we can colonise planets outside of our solar system. 

 

 

Another intersting point to note is that of the thermogenic power of protein versus carbohydrates and fats. 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 induce at all.

 

 

So, who would have thought that protein could be so important on so many levels, and that Meal Replacement Shakes could offer so many solutions? Check out our range to find a product that suits your needs.
