When I tell people that I am fueling my body with the best nutrition meal replacement shakes, they usually tell me something like: “Oh!, I’ve done that before; that’s not for me”, “They make me bloated”, “They don’t taste good!”, “I want to chew my food and eat my meals with a knife and fork”, etc…
The problem we face today is that according to research on nutritional content in foods, we can no longer get all the nutrition we need from whole organic foods because they are lacking vitamins and minerals. Our soils are nutrient-deficient as they have become depleted through mass farming and herbicide, pesticide, and fungicide use. Isagenix meal replacement shakes are a great solution to supplement our nutrition to ensure we are getting all that we need to keep our bodies healthy, functioning optimally, and proactively fighting off disease.
The other problem is not meal replacement shakes themselves, the problem is assuming they are all created equally. Here are some facts about the majority of meal replacement shakes available on the market:
- Many of them do not even have enough nutritional substance to be a full meal.
- The majority of the shakes based on milk proteins usually contain a large proportion of casein proteins instead of whey proteins. Casein has poor results in producing lean mass in athletes, and poor results in hospital studies of muscle loss.
- Others have ingredients such as soybeans used for soy protein isolate, a form of protein. Unfortunately the majority of the sources of soybeans are genetically modified.
- Yet others have corn syrup or corn maltodextrin as well as other additives which can have side effects such as allergic reactions and weight gain.1
The ISAGENIX® shakes are a full meal replacement, perfectly balanced and of the highest quality. The process used does not destroy the whey and milk proteins. Thus it is considered un-denatured and nutrient rich.
The IsaLean® shake is a full meal replacement (240 cal.) with proteins (24 g), energy-fueling carbohydrates (8 g fiber), good fats, and 23 vitamins and minerals per serving. These shakes do not bloat you at all because their natural enzymes are preserved through the gentle manufacturing process (they are un-denatured).
As well, they taste great and come in multiple flavors with additional seasonal flavors throughout the year. — (Dairy-free versions also exist).
Consuming two shakes per day plus one healthy low-glycemic, 400-600 calorie meal as well as 2 healthy 100-150 calorie snacks fuels the body and yet enables weight loss. — (More calories can be consumed once in weight maintenance)
Here’s why this works: Unlike diets, this system does not deprive the body of nutrition while reducing calorie intake. Diets fail to provide long-term results because they deprive the body of nutrition. This causes the loss of weight to come from both fat loss and lean muscle loss because the body is unable to properly balance the metabolic processes of anabolism and catabolism.
- More precisely, when anabolism occurs over catabolism, your body builds muscle; when catabolism occurs over anabolism, body tissues start to degrade, in other words, you “lose” your muscles and other tissues. Proper nutrition is necessary to fuel your body from the breakdown of fat tissues instead of muscle tissues.
