Why a Meal Replacement Shake Prevents Diet Chaos

When it comes to eating for fat loss, we believe in “K.I.S.S.” (Keep It Simple and Sustainable). A meal replacement shake is one of the best ways to K.I.S.S. Here’s why.

There’s no way around it: Biting off more than we can chew (forgive the pun) causes us to choke. We freeze up mentally and our body fights to preserve homeostasis. Essentially, we experience diet chaos.

Ask anyone who’s been down the yo-yo diet road before: Trying to do a 180 degree diet change typically results in:

  • Failing to permanently lose weight, or
  • Failing to lose weight… and gaining 10 pounds!

So if you could start with just one healthy change in your diet now, what should it be?

I’m going to make a case for drinking a meal replacement shake. That’s because after personally hearing from hundreds of successful IdealShape customers, they’ve all said one thing:

“The shake was the push I needed to take the first step, and everything fell into place from there.”

Here’s why meal replacement shakes make a terrific Step One.

1. They’re Simple.

While I’ve heard great things about foods like “green drinks” (smoothies packed with kale, spinach, apples, celery, etc.) those are a lot to think about. People who are strapped for time (which is most of us!) might find rounding up all those ingredients, chopping, food processing, and blending it all together a little too complicated. Especially when we’re talking healthy breakfasts. The morning is usually our busiest time of day!

If lack of time is a barrier to making one diet change today, a meal replacement shake solves that problem. It’s a single item that can stand alone as a meal, and you know the calorie amount without question. Once you’ve found your groove, you can start incorporating your shake into different recipes. (You can even make a green smoothie with IdealShake!) But if you need to keep it simple today, you certainly can.

2. They’re Sustainable.

Diets that cut out a whole food group or a macronutrient (like carbs, protein, or fat) just aren’t sustainable. Neither are deprivation diets, fasts, or cleanses, which can actually be dangerous. Variety and enjoyment are essential ingredients to a lasting change.

A diet should also be affordable, and prepared meals from weight loss companies can get really expensive. If a food regimen isn’t something you can afford to stick with, don’t plan on sticking with the resulting fat loss, either. IdealShake costs less than $2 per meal, very little compared to prepped meals from more expensive sources.

A meal replacement shake is something people can stick with. It’s convenient, and as for IdealShake, customers like the taste. They have no qualms about drinking it daily.

3. They’re Weight Loss Kick-Starters.

My favorite thing about meal replacement shakes is that they facilitate weight loss across the board: They are low-calorie meals, they help thwart cravings and snacking, and they’re workout friendly. A shake that’s high in protein like IdealShake will help you build lean muscle mass if you drink it before or after a strength-training session. The more lean muscle mass you have, the more efficiently your body will burn fat.

By curbing calories and increasing muscle mass, you’re likely to start seeing great results quickly, which means staying motivated long enough to add another healthy habit to your plate… when you’re good and ready.

Let’s Wrap it Up!

Adding a meal replacement shake like IdealShake to your day helps you prevent diet chaos. The complete nutrition and hunger-blocking power of IdealShake makes it extra easy to lose weight in a simple and sustainable way, without feeling deprived or getting discouraged! Use IdealShake to K.I.S.S.
