High-protein meal replacements are especially valuable when used at the start of a program to control calories, maintain muscle mass, produce feelings of fullness, and fulfill solid nutritional requirements while losing weight and weaning off unhealthy foods.
They provide structure and make the plan simple to follow by helping to reduce the stress of “food choice overload.”
Research studies have proven the effectiveness of meal replacement in initial weight loss and help with long-term weight maintenance. The American Journal of Medicine shows over 11% weight loss in 12 weeks using meal replacement and intensive behavioral counseling.
They are most effective when used in conjunction with intensive one-on-one behavioral counseling, allowing you to learn the good habits necessary to make better food and lifestyle choices.
You may want to explore additional options based on your specific weight loss goals and needs, such as weight loss medication (e.g., Wegovy, Mounjaro, Ozempic), Lipo-B injections, metabolism analysis, and more.
These are program offerings available only through a medical provider’s office and not through commercial programs.
