Meal Replacement Shakes, Drinks, Bars and other supplements are a cornerstone to people who don't have the time or energy to design a well balanced meal. The unscrupulous use of weight loss aids has seriously frustrated and disenchanted overweight patients.

Why start the day with a Meal Replacement shake?
You can help stabilize your blood sugars. Your body is coming out of a fasting state and needs the appropriate nutrients and proteins to help avoid cravings.
You can replenish needed fluids. Your body has gone several hours without needed fluids and an 8 - 16 oz. shake can reduce dehydration.
By stretching your caloric intake out throughout the day you can avoid binge eating later in the day.
What Meal Replacement products are available?
We have chosen to use several Meal Replacement products that have proven themselves over time with our patients. The 15 gram Pudding/Shakes provide the needed nutrients and low carb, high protein solutions that many people need while being very convenient. The taste and flavor are among the best in the industry. The 35 gram Very High Protein Shakes provide twice the nutrition and really help to keep you from being hungry until your next meal.
There are also Meal Replacement bars. The 15-gram protein bars on our site could be used as Meal Replacements if you have two bars.
What should you watch out for in a Meal Replacement drink?
Some store bought brands have a lot of sugar. Each product will have some sugar, since they must mask the bitter taste of some of the vitamins and minerals used to create the balanced meal that is needed, but the overall sugar content needs to be minimal.
