Diet and meal replacement shakes: Do they really help curb your appetite and help with weight loss?
I can rarely find time to make breakfast in the morning so I was thinking about taking some type of diet or meal replacement shake. Question is, do they actually work? Which ones are the best /worst? Please share your opinions. Much appreciated. Thx!
Thanks for the info. Much appreciated. ;)
I don't have time in the morning for anything so I boil eggs n eat them with toast. They take 15 min so I put them on when I shower or get dressed. Quick n easy...
N I don't think they curb when ur hungry ur hungry.. Its best to eat so u don't over eat later. Just pick healthier choices n smaller portions
I tried my first green smoothie today at lunch time. I felt full after finishing it and didn't eat or crave anything until dinner time at 6pm.
I take a nature valley peanut butter granola bar to work and wait as long as I can to eat it..after that a couple hours later I have a turkey and cheese on wheat bread..and then I can make it on fruit most of the day..yogurt with nuts is good too
Losing so much weight in short period of time is not good... you're destroying muscle mass and maybe just water weight
In my experience... they do help because they provide more nutrients than something you would just grab but for less calories, often leaving you hungry. I like EAS Lean 15, Body By Vi, Zeal, NLA, and Herbalife. Or like Carnation Instant Breakfast haha, same idea, more sugar. Homemade smoothies and juices or bottled versions like Naked work well also. I use them because I have a huge sweet tooth and a sweet shake will calm my craving in a healthy way. Meal replacement or not, it's all about a healthy lifestyle. Basically, if it's practical for your life and you eat well otherwise it will help, if you end up starving and follow it with a coke and a candy bar it won't do a thing.
