Meal Replacement Shakes

When wondering what the best meal replacement shakes are it ALWAYS pays to read the label. If you are staring at a long list of ingredients that you struggle to pronounce then you’d have to wonder if your meal replacement shake is actually healthy.

Did you know that many popular meal replacement shakes contain ingredients that have actually been linked to weight gain? Artificial sweeteners such as Aspertame (also known as NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, Canderel & E951, etc) have been known to inhibit weightloss and cause many uncomfortable side effects. This toxic chemical has long been recognised by prominent medical authorities as a neurotoxin, yet it is found in many diet supplements and diet foods.

So what is the answer when choosing the best meal replacement shake for you? We recommend natural ingredients over synthetic and a good ratio of protein, carbohydrates and fat, with enough fibre thrown in to keep you feeling full.

We compared the ingredients of our 180 Natural Protein Superfood with a current top selling nutritional meal replacement supplement and it even shocked us!
