Many people eat 1 – 2 meals per day, when professional recommendations encourage 4 – 6 meals per day. Not eating a healthy breakfast often means an 18 hour fast between the previous dinner and lunch on the following day. Poor nutrtion encourages fat retention and muscle catabolism (wasting). Muscle is the building block to fat burning and requires energy (food) for maintenance. If the body is starved of food, it quickly gets rid of the most expensive item (muscle) and keeps the least expensive (fat). This lowers metabolism, reduces strength, creates poor posture and encourages poor health.Congratulations, you’ve just made another resolution to lose weight. Don’t you wish you had a dollar each time you resolved to get healthy and broke that promise? You’d probably hire a professional trainer for the rest of your life. However, it’s understandable. Most people live this scenario every single day. Why? Well, there are many reasons, but two are shared by most and they are time and discipline. Over time, we develop bad nutrition and exercise habits which have made heart disease the number one cause of death in the country and we don’t have the discipline to fix it.
Proper nutrtion is foundational to health and exercise and must be gained one step at a time. Because of time, cooking a healthy breakfast is out of the question for many. However, having a meal replacement shake provides essential nutrients for a healthy diet. Meal replacement shakes are also low in calories, yet contain nutrition rich protein. The Meal Replacement Shake by Advocare is rich in fiber, essential for regularity and packs a whopping 24 grams of protein necessary for muscle retention. It’s 50% daily calcium values and 26 vitamins and minerals are all packaged in just 220 calories and can be supplemented with fruit, low fat milk, non-fat or low fat yogurt and even water, to make a delicious start to any day.
Small, low fat meals are recommended throughout the day for weight loss and management. The Meal Replacement Shake can be consumed as a snack anytime during the day. Short on time? Make twice the amount for breakfast. Divide it in half. Pack the remainder in ice and you’re on your way.
Meal replacement shakes also serve the recreational or avid fitness buff who wants to maintain or improve fitness. Many people train but see little results from their efforts. More often than not, this is due to poor diet. A fitness program is only as good as the nutrition which supports it. In addition to protein, meal replacement shakes consumed after exercise, provide essential amino acids, which aid recovery and build muscle tissue. Replacements shakes also replenish potassium lost during exercise. Potassium supports proper function of all organs and cells within the body. Extreme deficiency causes irregular heartbeat, an impaired nervous system and even death.
Achieving a healthy lifestyle does take some effort. However, Adovcare products require little effort, provide essential vitamins and are perfect for the one pressed for time or the one who needs help developing discipline. Adherence to a healthy diet is a matter of life and death for many. Diets balanced in proteins, carbohydrates and fats can drastically reduce the top two causes (heart disease and cancer) of death.
