Choosing The Right Meal Replacement Shake For Losing Weight

There are many different meal replacement shakes on the
market.  When choosing the right meal
replacement shake, always read the labels. 
A good protein shake should have vitamins, minerals, protein, fiber, and
carbohydrates.  They should be low in
calories and have a low sugar content. 
Protein should be higher in grams or at the least equivalent to the
grams of carbohydrates.  Shakes contain
fewer calories than most full meals but offer all the nutrients your body
requires for overall health.


In order to lose weight, you must incorporate healthier
meals that should be low in sugar, stay away from processed foods, and do not
overeat.  Sticking to a healthy diet will
give you the results you are looking for much more quickly.


Once you have decided which meal will be replaced with a
shake, you need to know which shakes contain the proper ingredients for weight


What Should & Should Not Be In Meal Replacement Shakes
For Weight Loss


Have Less Than 3 grams of sugar:


Your liver processes sugar and when the levels are high, it
will convert sugar into fat.  Avoid using
sugar and sugar-rich foods if you want to lose weight.


Stay Away From:


Soft drinks

Granulated sugar


Cookies, cakes, and pies


Canned fruits packed in syrup

Condiments such as mayonnaise, ketchup, and barbecue sauce

Ice Cream


Keep in mind, fruits contain fructose but the levels are so
low, that even if you eat a lot of fruit, you body will not have high levels of


Low Calories will burn fat:


Your body needs a certain amount of calories to create
energy but if you consume more calories than you body requires, you will gain
weight.  An excessive level of energy
will turn into fat.


Eggs, fish, meat, and some fruit contain good fats.  Your body needs good fats, vitamins, and
fiber that are found in these foods.


There are other foods that contain “empty calories” such as
donuts, ice cream, cookies, cakes, and hot dogs. Stay away from these foods.


Understand carbohydrates that provide needed energy and will
cut back on cravings.  Carbohydrates are
mainly found in milk, grain, plants, and fruit. 
When ingested, carbs are turned into sugar (glucose).  If your body doesn't need glucose, it will be
stored as fat.  If your body doesn't have
enough glucose, your body will use up protein and reduce muscle along the
way.  That can result in stress placed on
your kidneys and a reduction in your metabolic rate.


Simple & Complex Carbohydrates:


Simple carbs are processed in the body and quickly produce
energy which lasts for a short period of time. 
Processed foods contain high levels of simple carbs and should be


Complex carbs take longer to process and become absorbed
into the body.  The energy produces more
slowly but lasts for a longer period of time. Complex carbs are found in grain,
vegetables, pasta, and bread.  They will control
your blood sugar, keep you feeling full for longer periods of time, and help
you lose weight much more quickly.


Good shakes are replacing carbs with protein and are higher
in fiber.  While reducing carbs, you
reduce sugar, and calorie levels by providing protein and healthy fats to boost
your energy level.


Protein Will Boost Your Metabolism:


Foods rich in protein include fish, eggs, meat, and dairy
products.  When protein is processed in
your body, it will build, restore, and maintain muscles.  Protein reduces your cravings by making you
feel fuller.  Keeping good levels of
protein will help your body transform fat into energy and burn calories.


Fiber Will Keep You Feeling Full For A Longer Period Of


Fiber is found in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.  Whole berries like raspberries and
strawberries are rich in fiber.




Vitamins are critical for allowing your body to function
properly.  Your body cannot produce
vitamins, so you must consume them. 
Vitamins are found in many foods to keep your vitamin levels up.


Your diet must include several things for greater
health.  Protein for growth and repair,
vitamins and minerals to allow your body to function properly, carbohydrates
for energy, water for hydration, and fiber to keep your digestive system in
good order.  Your body also needs healthy
good fats.
