Diet Shakes For A Beautiful Head-turning Bikini Body

Updated on January 25, 2016

Get The Body You Want With Meal Replacement Shakes

Diet shakes are a quick fix after the excesses of the Christmas holidays and New Year parties. If you do not want the “foie gras”, cheese and Christmas desserts finding a permanent home on your hips, a few days drinking these shakes as meal replacements will help you to go back to your pre-holidays weight without too much effort. You will also need to drink plenty of water throughout the day to clean your system from all the abuses done during the holiday season. Aim at least for 4 big glasses of plain water a day, not only you will help your body get rid of toxins but you will feel less hungry at your next meal.

If you can, it also helps to include at least 30 minutes of physical activity daily. Something like walking the dog, a few laps in the swimming pool, dancing or cycling. Another tip to help you go back to your pre-holiday weight is to pamper yourself. A good body scrub to help clean your body from toxins accumulated, a detox food regime, a luxurious bath and a sauna are also very good ideas to bring back glamour to your face and body after all those wild party nights. .

Replacing an average meal with a diet shake, you are cutting about 500 calories out of your usual daily intake, resulting in a weight loss of at least 1 pound per week.

WARNINGS:

If you want to lose more than 6 pounds or 3 kilos, you are under 18, pregnant, nursing, or you have health problems such as diabetes, you should see a doctor before starting this or any diet.  

 

I would not recommend diet shake mixes to anyone trying to lose considerable weight.  I did try an exclusive milk-shake diet some years ago for several months – I managed to lose a lot of weight- but as a result I was severely ill.  However, as a quick fix to bring you back to your original weight after a few days excesses, diet shakes are and easy and quick way to do it.

According to Vanderbilt University Diet Shakes can help you lose up to 24 pounds in approximately three months.

Diet Shakes for Convenience

Australian researchers writing in the Journal of Nutrition found that people who took diet shakes were more positive about dieting in general, rating their eating plan more favorably for its convenience than those on the regular food diet.

Diet Shakes: The Simplest Way to Diet

  • Diet shakes are particularly useful for jump-starting weight loss.
  • Having a diet shake is much better for your health than skipping a meal.
  • Diet shakes help you keep tight control on calories.
  • Diet shakes can help you maintain a healthier weight by drinking at least one diet shake a day in place of a regular meal.

Atkins Ready To Drink milk shakes

The Atkins Advantage™ Ready-to-Drink Shakes contain no added sugar. Best of all they taste great, while packing 18 grams of protein, 23 essential nutrients plus calcium, and only 2 grams of carbs.

Made with real coffee and rich chocolate, Atkins Advantage Mocha Latté shake blends the perfect taste with the optimal mix of nutrients.

Diet Shakes For Diabetics


If you are diabetic, skip shakes with sugar listed as one of the first three ingredients and be careful of too much protein. If your kidneys are not functioning properly, too much protein can cause health concerns.

Glucerna claim to be the makers of the #1 doctor recommended nutrition shake for people with diabetes. They offer a Balanced Nutrition Snack Shake Can for people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Glucerna Hunger Smart Shakes are a delicious way to help stick to your weight loss plan. Each satisfying Glucerna Hunger Smart Shake has 15 grams of protein to help manage hunger. Also good for people with impaired glucose tolerance resulting from metabolic stress, such as illness, trauma, and infection.

If you have diabetes, it’s essential that you consult your doctor before starting any weight loss plan, as your medication might need to be adjusted as a result.


Remember...

If you’re using shakes for weight loss, do so only for the short term and in combination with other healthy strategies.

Remember that this milkshakes are meal replacements, which means that you need to take a milkshake INSTEAD of your usual meal. Do not make the mistake of a friend of mine who was gaining weight instead of losing it because she was taking the milkshakes WITH every meal she had!

      I have tried the 'herbalife' shake. It's really works. Besides, it doesn't let you feel hungry.

      Lgali : the ready to drink shakes are super handy to carry around in your handbag for a quick fix and best of all... they are tasty!

      getinmoney: Yes, I agree that eating healthy is the best way to lose weight, but I find that sometimes after a few excesses, a couple of days with milkshakes bring me back to my usual weight without too much effort. As I said, I would not recommend it as a long term plan but I am all for it as a quick way to go back to your usual weight.

      Sybille: thanks for stopping to comment. Happy new year!
