Do you struggle to find enough hours in the day to prepare healthy meals? Do you work in a job that doesn’t allow enough time to eat wholesome foods? Are you unsure of what you should be eating for optimal health and functionality? Do you find it difficult to understand portion sizes? Have you tried every fad diet under the sun and still aren’t where you want to be?
We get it: finding the time, budget and nutritional knowledge to make healthy eating choices is often easier said than done. With health food being double the price of fast food and the media introducing a new diet craze every month, it’s no wonder our choices surrounding nutrition don’t always reflect our goals. The solution? Enter: meal replacement shakes!
Now, we know what you might be thinking: “what substantial goodness could I possibly get from those nutrient-scarce and unsustainable shakes?” Well, contrary to popular belief, not all meal replacement shakes are filled with sugar, lacking nutrients and pumping your body with filler ingredients. While not all meal replacements are created equal, they certainly aren’t all bad. In fact, did you know that meal replacement shakes were originally invented to help people absorb nutrients more easily? Yet, today that’s not the only benefit. They are also a convenient option for people who are short on time, trying to lose weight, or those who want to consume a satisfying and tasty meal without excessive calories. Simply put, they’re designed to provide the same nutrition as a full meal, in a convenient, calorie-controlled and easy-to-drink formula. Just think of meal replacement shakes as a low-fuss solution for high-quality nutrients.

Simple explanation: Anyone wanting to enter a calorie deficit for weight loss or those who are too busy to source all their nutrients from whole foods. This includes, but is not limited, to:
Those wanting to lose weight
Busy parents on-the-go
Shift workers - nurses, police, paramedics etc.
Those on the road - truck drivers, delivery services etc.
Corporate workers - Those in and out of meetings who struggle to fit in whole foods
People who tend to skip meals
Substituting a meal or two with a nutritious and satisfying meal replacement shake can certainly be a cost-effective, convenient and efficient way to reach your weight loss goals or to ensure you’re meeting your daily nutrient requirements, for those who are constantly on the run.
Yet, it’s important to understand that not all meal replacement shakes are created equal. When purchasing a meal replacement, it’s important to read the nutrition panel carefully so you’re well aware of what you’re putting into your body. For instance, some meal replacements contain trace amounts of vitamins and minerals and are low in important macronutrients (carbs, fats and protein). Additionally, they may also be high in unhealthy ingredients such as corn syrup and chemical preservatives.
Let’s recap: meal replacement shakes certainly do work as they’re quick, portable, convenient, nutritious, low in calories, cost-effective, and they take out the guesswork for those who aren’t sure about nutrition or simply don’t have the time to prioritise their macros. However, it’s important to choose your shake wisely. Aim to purchase a meal replacement shake that contains high protein, vitamins, minerals and relatively high amounts of carbs and healthy fats, while steering clear of high sugar and filler ingredients.
Thought all meal replacement shakes were created equal? Think again.
