Herbalife Meal Replacement Review | Are All Proteins Good for Weight loss?

There are three main reasons why you should add protein to your diet. First it satisfies and controls hunger; secondly it supports adequate protein intake with low-fat protein; and third it helps build and maintain lean muscle mass.

Another great reason is that it helps to curb and control hunger. This is huge because many times if we do not curb and control hunger we end up eating way more that our required calories for the day resulting in not achieving the weight loss we are longing for.

I know some are thinking all protein are created equal. Unfortunately that is not the case. There are proteins that are not as good for you because they contain a lot of fat.

This is evident in ribeye steak and new york strip steak which contain a lot of saturated marble fat. Those are very tasty steaks by the way but should be eaten in moderation.

Other protein meats are pork, chicken, lamb and pretty much any animal that is edible. You could also find great protein in beans, nuts and other variety of foods.

To achieve a momentum in weight loss

You need to consume a substantial amount of protein and this is dependent on your BMI which is your body mass indicator.

Now there is a guide line available that you can use to determine your body mass and how much protein you would need to consume in your weight loss plan.

Another thing is that you want to keep your intake of protein rich meal consistent through out the day so you are giving your body constant fuel and you don’t allow it to go into starvation mode and start storing fat.

So here is the problem. How do you consume enough food through the day while not going over your calorie limit and how do you consume that many meals through out the day?

One of the things is careful planning of your protein meals through out your day.

Let say consuming a protein rich meal every 2 to 3 hours and using a meal replacement shake that will give you all the requirements of a nutritional meal and enough protein.

This is what I found with herbalife meal replacement shakes. It provides the right amount of soy protein, which study shows to increase weight loss, it also low in carbohydrates and fats. It also curbs and controls your appetite until your next meal.

I know you are probably thinking all protein shake and meal replacement shakes are the same but you have to read the label on the products that are out there. Some products may have too much calories or fats and too much sugars as well.

So you definitely may want to look into a product that has a good reputation and has great testimonials on its effectiveness. I would also like to add that it should taste great. You don’t want to be gagging just trying to get your daily requirement of protein.

Now the great thing about drinking herbalife shakes

Is that they taste great, are convenient when you don’t have time to make a meal, and are very easy to make. You could have a delicious meal within a couple of minutes. You could also add fruit to them to change up the flavor as well.

The most important thing about supplementing your diet is that you have to remember that it is a supplement and you must still take into consideration good nutrition through a variety of healthy foods.

There is no magic pill or a secret to losing weight, it is doing your homework on the foods and supplements available and creating a lifestyle change that will help you reach your goal.
