What are Meal Replacements?
Our meal replacement blends are supplements that can be used alongside a balanced diet. They usually feature macronutrients, like carbs, protein, and micronutrients, like vitamins and minerals. This ensures your intake of nutrients your body needs to maintain a healthy weight is not impacted, even if you’re trying to lower your calorie intake. Therefore, meal replacements can be a valuable support to your weight-loss goals.
What are the Benefits of Meal Replacements?
As meal replacements often feature macronutrients and vitamins, they are a great way to hit your daily recommended allowance, with a normal healthy diet. Meal replacements that contain protein can also contribute to the maintenance and growth of muscle, which helps to support your progress after an intense workout — crucial for everyone regardless of your fitness goal. They can also be a great way to improve feelings of satiety, which can in turn help with your weight loss goal, as if you feel full for longer after a meal, the desire to eat sugary, unhealthy snacks decreases.
