Ideal Protein Meal Replacements

For those on a busy schedule, meal replacements can be an ideal weight loss option. Meal replacements are low in calories and carbohydrates, and rich in protein and other essential nutrients. Preparing a low carb/high protein meal may not always be possible so meal replacements help substitute some of your meals saving time and helping you avoid junk food. Meal replacements include shakes, bars, soups, wafers, and more!  

Meal replacements for weight loss or weight maintenance are specially formulated. They are easily digested and do not raise your metabolic rate as much as whole foods do. Unlike protein shakes which focus on increasing protein intake, meal replacements contain a wide range of essential nutrients with a minimum of 200 calories so you can safely use it to substitute a meal.

Meal replacements should be supplemented with a healthy diet. If you are eating 3 meals a day, a meal replacement should not substitute more than 1 meal. For those on diets with 5-6 small meals a day, two meals can be substituted with a meal replacement. It is recommended you use a meal replacement for meals that you are likely to skip or find difficult to prepare to prevent unhealthy snacking. Using a variety of meal replacements helps avoid boredom.
