Meal replacements, If you can educate your body to drink this kind of products you can achieve your goals faster than ever, however there is a big problem with the calories on this kind of products; because wherever you go, you will have the chance to be invited to eat (Normal food) and that’s a problem if you are trying to lose weight.
Meal replacements are full of calories and if you mix this stuff with food you will get more that 10 pounds in two week, you have to be careful about how to use it.
I recommend you try meal replacements for two consecutive weeks every two months. That means; During 6 weeks you eat your low calorie diet (chicken, fish, fruits, carbs, water and vegetables) and during two consecutive weeks you will drink meal replacement during the morning before workout and other shake as your dinner, for lunch time you will have a salad full of green vegetables, please don’t forget to drink a lot of water and yes !! you can eat a granola bar before to go to sleep and for cravings drink water.
Repeat the process over and over again. 6 weeks of a normal low calorie diet and two weeks just drinking meal replacements. please try to avoid the mix of meal replacement with normal food, that will make difficult your process to lose weight.
Remember : A good body is the result of 70% diet and 30% gym.
Finally let me show you the benefits and overall information about meal replacement products
Proteins have an overall benefit on physical activity and on overall health. protein may help reduce blood pressure. A protein mixture, consisting of 20% pea, 20% soy, 30% egg, and 30% milk-protein isolate, reduced systolic and diastolic blood pressure in overweight individuals (BMI = 25-35). This research suggests that protein intake might help manage blood pressure and prevent complications associated with elevated blood pressure.
Soy protein consumption is beneficial to cardiovascular health. The consumption of soy protein can lower triglyceride levels as well as total and LDL cholesterol levels, and increases HDL levels and HDL/LDL ratios. While an optimal soy protein intake is in the range of 15 to 20 g/day, an intake of 25 g/day of soy protein can be specifically used to reduce cholesterol levels. Furthermore, supplementation with soy protein can help reduce the markers of prostate cancer development, such as the prostate-specific antigen (PSA), “in patients with prostate cancer or in men at high risk for developing advanced prostate cancer.
Whey proteins have the capacity to modulate adiposity, enhance immune function and anti-oxidant activity, and improve cardiovascular health. Furthermore, whey protein appears to have a blood glucose and/or insulin lowering effect. Some clinical studies have also shown that taking whey protein in combination with strength training can increase lean body mass, strength, and muscle size.
Protein supplements for a healthy, noncompetitive adult who participates in recreational sports are usually not warranted. If you are an active person, chances are you do not need a protein supplement and using one will be counterproductive because of the extra calories (remember, 1 gram of protein provides as many kilocalories as 1 gram of sugar!). Athletes and vegetarians are special populations that may require supplements. Athletes, especially those who train with weights and burn a significant amount of calories from cardiovascular and aerobic training, may require additional supplementation. However, their need for extra protein could be easily obtained through the diet, thereby negating the use of protein supplements. Vegetarian diets are often very low in protein and supplementation may be appropriate.
