This article by Barbie Cervoni, RD, CDE, Type 2 Diabetes Expert, explain why meal replacement shakes work!
“Meal replacements are calorie and portion controlled beverages or food items, such as bars or shakes, that can be used as a substitution for food. The American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics states, “meal replacements containing a known energy and macronutrient are a useful strategy to eliminate problematic foods choices and/or complex meal planning while trying to achieve a 500 to 1,000 energy deficit.” This is the estimated amount of calories you would need to cut or burn to lose about 1/2 pound to 1 pound per week. The Academy’s weight loss position papers also report several studies that have shown equivalent or greater weight loss results when using meal replacements as opposed to reduced energy diet plans. Studies have also shown that those persons with Type 2 diabetes lose about 7 percent of their body weight in one year and consistently report medication reductions when using meal replacements. In these studies, though, people were still exercising, keeping food diaries and learning about nutritions.”
Now the question is which one is the best.
As we all know too much sugar in our diet is the main problem causing obesity and diabetes I found one shake that has no sugar!!!!
